Hannibal Hamlin, Vice President under Lincoln, was from 1869 to 1881 serving in the U. S. Senate, so he couldn't have been the one living in Belmont. The name "Hannibal" was a popular one in the Hamlin family at that time. Vice-President Hannibal had an uncle and cousin in Waterford, both named Hannibal, and had a son named Hannibal Emery Hamlin, who was born in Hampden (in 1858) and was a lawyer in Ellsworth.
