    Thomas and Sukey Hamilton

    Hi all, been a bit quiet here as I have spent the last 6 weeks on Hamilton Shores. While here I raided my Mother’s basement which has all of Nancy Nivison’s (Aunt Nancy to many of you) records. She saved everything and was active researching our genealogy so lots of great stuff that I am slowly scanning into the Documents area of the website.

    But perhaps the most interesting find were these pictures of Thomas Hamilton and Susan (Sukey) Carter, who together started the Tribe of Tom. Neither Duncan nor I have come across photos of them to date4 so we believe this is the first and only set in existence.

    Both look like photos of pictures hanging on a wall. Anyone recognize them and know where they were (or are)?

    Thomas Hamilton, 1810 – 1891
    Susan (Sukey) Carter, 1806 – 1881
