Birth of Henry Hamilton, July 29, 1829, Drumards, Co. Tyrone
« on: Wednesday 07 February 18 23:34 GMT (UK) »
Henry Hamilton became a coal company owner in Ohio and Pennsylvania, USA. He died Feb 24, 1891,  in Sharon, Mercer Co., Pennsylvania although his permanent residence was Brookfield Township,  Ohio. An article about him says that he was born July 29, 1829 in Drumards, Co. Tyrone. I  am looking for the names of his parents, and possible  sisters Margaret Jane born in 1826 and Ann born 1832. They were all living in Brookfield so likely siblings. I know Margaret Jane and Ann were siblings but don't know for sure about Henry.
Thanks for any help

Drumard is in the Civil Parish of Tullyniskan
Drumard (Druim Ard) is a townland in Derryloran (Upper Dungannon portion) Civil Parish
and see below

This positively boggles my mind. thank you for your help. I ordered the probate papers for Henry Hamilton over 6 weeks ago from the Trumbull Co. Probate Court in Ohio. When I didn't receive them (they were paid for), I called and the papers were resent over 2 weeks ago. I don't know if they will help me but hoping they will.
I also asked for his death certificate from Pennsylvania but have had no response in that regard. Although I am positive in my own mind that Henry, Margaret Jane, and Ann were siblings, I need to prove it. The probate papers might help with that. However, that still doesn't prove his/their parentage. In Ann's probate papers, she states that Margaret Jane is her sister. She also names a niece Jane Hamilton living in Brookfield and the only Jane that I can find is Henry's daughter.
thanks for the links you have sent.

Drumads is a townland in the Parish of Ardboe. A family of Hamiltons lived there in the 1850s.  Parents John Hamilton married a Catherine O Brien children were Robert b 1854, Henry b 1857, Charles b 1861 and Sarah b 1863. Griffiths Valuations 1859 give a Sarah Hamilton in possession of 6 acres,  John Hamilton 3 acres and a Henry Hamilton 43 acres. Its possible that your Henry could be a son of this John or Henry . Drumad or Drumads in the Griffiths Valuations is given in the Parish of Tamlaght which is the village of Coagh and its surroundings
