#58 James Hamilton and #59 Margaret Turner.

I’ve discovered evidence to support the fact that family member, #59, Margaret Tanner, under my Frazier line, is in error. It should read Margaret Turner.

Margaret Turner’s marriage to James Hamilton is in the same record book that Garrard and Eliza Ann Hamilton Morgan’s marriage, posted here, is recorded in. They were married in Nicholas County, Kentucky.

In 1988, descendant Marjorie Morgan W., had an independent genealogy research firm gather information for her about this family. Her daughter, cousin Karen M., generously shared this family group sheet, and the researcher’s notes with me.

  1. I have been waiting forever to find time to watch the thousand years of Broughs and finally did it today. Thanks again for sharing your info. And thanks for the comments on my blog:)

  2. Wonderful! I need to find some time to sit down and read through all your genealogy posts again.
