  1. Looking for any info on my great great great grandmother. She was either Cherokee or Shawnee. I believe that was the tribes living in southern Ohio at that time. Her name was Martha Hamilton. Had a daughter Sarah Ann Hamlet or Hamblett. Sarah’s father was John Hamlet son of was Benjamin Hamlet was one of the early settlers whom helped establish a station to protect their families near the site of present village of Staunton, which went by the name of “Dutch Station”. Benjamin was born in Ky and married Chloe Kimball. They son, John was married to Martha (the Indian), in 1829. The marriage was not dated in records so I don’t know where this date came from. Sarah Ann, their daughter was born 30th of April 1833 near Dayton, Ohio then called Montgomery Co. Her mother died when she was a baby. Billie and Annie Booker took her in and raised her till 11 years old. Her father remarried a woman that refused to have anything to do with her. I would guess it was because she was Indian. Sarah had to work for food and clothing. George and Mary Simmons of the Troy Hotel took her in. Sarah Ann married Wm. Blackmore 7 Oct. 1852. If you have any info on Martha Hamilton or can tell me where to look, I would really appreciate it. Any family member that may have had info has now passed. Thank you for your time.
