Re: Spurgeon Family

In Reply to: Spurgeon Family by Ann of 968

I guess I don't have much on Hamilton Forman's family.
There is a Bible in KY published 1807 which has the Samuel Spurgeon family listed:
Priscilla Spurgeon daughter of Samuel and Catherine was born August 6, 1785
Priscilla his daughter was married Dec. 11, 1804 Hamilton Forman
There is another Bible which I have not seen, published 1802, which is in a DAR book "Kentucky Genealogical Records" compiled by Mrs. M. H. Dunn, p. 49-54.
This one says:
Priscila Spurgin was born August 6th in the year of our Lord 1785.
Hambleton Foreman and Priscilla Spurgin was married the 11 day of December 1804.
Hamilton Forman died September 1865 - 27.
[not sure what the last number means]
This Bible contains the family of a daughter:
Henry Conlee & Elizabeth Foreman was married April 24, 1834.
Henry Conlee was born May the 1, 1812.
Elizabeth Conlee was born December the 22, 1815.
William Harrison Conlee was born March the 5, 1835.
Priscila Ann Conlee was born August the 29th, 1837.
James Hamilton Conlee was born February the 5th, 1840.
Mary Cathrin Conlee was born September the 26, 1842.
John Wesley Conlee was born August the 3, 1845.
Matson Stuart Conlee was born February 4th, 1848.
Forman G. Conlee was born Oct. the 5th, 1853.
Sariha (?) Francis Conlee was born November the 3, 1857.
James Hamilton Conlee died September the 18 - 58.
Sarih F. Conlee died August the 27, 1876.
Elizabeth Conlee died February the 10, 1899.

Then there are some dates for some Foreman children who seem to be too young to be Hamilton's kids:
Richard Green Forman was born the 4th of November 1846.
Daniel Hamilton Forman was born April 15th, 1838.
James Harvey Forman was born August 15, 1837.
William Henry Forman was born March 18, 1841.
Richard Green Foreman died October 27, in the year of our Lord 1848.

Hamilton Forman is in Montgomery Co KY in 1820, p. 253.
Hamilton Forman is in Montgomery Co KY in 1830, p. 22. There is a Garrett Forman on p. 35 and William Foreman on p. 40.
Hamilton Forman is in Montgomery Co KY in 1840, p. 281. Garrett Forman is living next door at this time, so could likely be a son.
Hamilton Foreman is in Montgomery Co KY in 1850, p. 105, age 67 VA with wife Priscilla 64 VA. He is a cooper with $150.
Hamilton Foreman is in Powell Co KY in 1860 #176, age 78 VA, wife wife Priscilla 73 VA. Powell was created in 1852 from Montgomery and other counties. He probably had not moved.

You might check for a will or estate record to see if children are named.
Hamilton Forman is mentioned a couple times in estate papers for Samuel Spurgeon - once I believe with the middle initial "O".

If you run across a good list of the children, let me know. There are various young males and females listed in the early census records with this couple. My interest is the Spurgeon name.
