April 1811 Recd from John Logan twenty dollars for Noble Hamilton
attest Audly Hamilton
Noble Hamilton (1765 – 1837), Joseph Hamilton (died 1824) and Audly Hamilton were all brothers. From the research I have been able to find, they appear to be the sons of a Sarah Gilkey Hamilton. The name of their father is unknown as he apparently died before the family’s move to Rutherford County, NC. Joseph was a doctor and was married to Nancy Whiteside. Noble married to a Jane Gilkey. Audrey never married but he had an illegitimate child named Benjamin Hamilton with Luvicey Biggerstaff.
In 1816 Joseph and Noble were defendants in a Rutherford County court case where they were charged with assault and battery on James Dodd. James Dodd apparently met with a female slave of Nobel’s named Celia and received a large some of money ($10) knowing that it was stolen from Nobel (hence the reason for the assault). James Dodd was later tried for lying under oath.
Please post a comment below if you have any additional information about the Hamilton brothers.
