Yes, I agree. Elreeta has gleaned information not seen elsewhere. She has a story about my gr gr grdfthr, James Monroe Rice, never told in my family. He shot "an Irishman" in his general store. That log cabin, general store was also used as the county courthouse. As first county judge I don't think he was dispensing "justice", just shot the man. (^_^)
If you ever go to Hamilton, be sure to visit the Genealogy Society's library. The photo on their website doesn't do it justice, it really is larger then it looks in that photo. And, they've added an RV park on their property, too. They are a dedicated group of volunteers.
Also, the Hamilton newspaper is online:
I've done quite a bit of research on Hamilton Co. and sometimes I recognize surnames in the obits as being from early families in the county. Those obits are really sumpin', regular little bios, sometimes. An 80 year old person dies, and they may say they were predeceased by their parents, and give the names of those parents, too.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
