    It would appear that I am doubly-descended from John Hamilton of Concord.
    My great-great grandmother, Marcia Hamilton (who married John Sylvester Bigelow)’s father was James Hamilton (1779-1852); m. Lucy Nichols.
    James Hamilton’s parents were first cousins (it would appear); William Hamilton (1753-1832) and Beulah Hamilton (1756-1838). William’s mother was Mary (Molly/Polly) Hamilton, the daughter of Joseph Hamilton (1697-1746); Beulah’s father was Josiah Hamilton (1724-1792), the son of Joseph Hamilton (1697-1746).
