    -------------------------------

    In the obituary included above in the Find A Grave memorial, it saysthe death occurred on the previous Thursday and the funeral on Friday. The date of death would be 14 February 1930 and burial on 15 February1930.  But the memorialist reports the date of death as 12 February,which would be Tuesday.  I have seen no transcriptoin of the graves inthis cemetery nor a photo of Robert's gravestone.

    The obituary states that Robert moved with his parents to Arkansas in1860.  They were in White Oak Township of Jefferson County before theSeptember 1860 census enumeration.   His father's obituary says thatthey moved in 1859.

    This obituary says that Robert and Sallie married in 1888.  Agenealogy reports an exact date of 2 September 1883.  The generalogyhas no documentation, and lacks many other details.  However, it seemsto reflect family knowledge, including full names of their children.So it may have the correct marriage date.  Another genealogy also hasthe same marriage date.  The 1900 census reported they had beenmarried 13 years, which would make it about 1887, matching theobituary report.

    Sallie E. MCSWAIN
    Birth 1865, Death 1935
    Parents M.M. McSwain, Lucy b 1820
    Marriage 2 Sep 1883 to Robert Monroe HAMILTON
    --  Glenn H Morrison,http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/5413134/person/-1457111804?ssrc=&ftm=1

    Note that this genealogy has Sally's middle initial as E, rather thanas I.  Robert's mother's name was Sarah (Sallie) E Hamilton.
