TO THE DESCENDANTS OF ANDREW HAMILTON AND LILLIAN DAY GENERAL: This issue will probably be larger than usual as I wish to include the FORREST Family Tree as supplied by cousin Gordon from Penn State U. During our search for vacation spots in Scotland, prior to our spring trip to that country, we came across a computer web page of "Scottish & Irish Hamilton Families ~ International" who have as one of their mandates " to develop a complete database and family tree of Hamilton families throughout the World depicting their lineage to the original Hamilton family". I have not had time to explore this further but anyone wishing to get more information on this organization can contact them at: Joseph Hamilton : Chair ~ Board of Directors Scottish & Irish Hamilton Families International 454 Nelson Street Kingston, Ontario K7K 4N5 (613) 546-3097
This next information comes from Ron Schier via Bill Hamilton and some may 
find this Scottish Naming Pattern useful in doing their searches.
The Scottish Naming Pattern is as follows:
* The eldest son was named for the father's father
* The second son was named for the mother's father
* The third son was named for the father
* The fourth son was named for the father's eldest brother
* The fifth son was named for ther mother's eldest brother
  and so on
It applied to girls too:
* The eldest daughter was named for the mother's mother
* The second daughter was named for the father's mother
* The third daughter was named for the mother
* The fourth daughter was named for the mother's eldest sister
* The fifth daughter was named for the father's eldest sister.
If names would be duplicated, you simply skipped to the next name
in the series.
GENEALOGY IN REVIEW:The FORREST family tree that follows was supplied by 
Gordon A Hamilton(whose ancestors are:  Angus Robert, Samuel, David, John,
Andew )and it is in the Register format which is one of the most widely 
accepted report formats.  Gordon has also included some very interesting notes 
on the life and times of many of the individuals in this report.  This report 
covers only four generations (it gets very large after that) so there are no 
records included for the children listed in the fourth generation.

**************************************************

2. Robert Forrest. Son of John Forrest & (?). Born About 1778 in Scotland.
Robert Forrest20 22  was a ‘Lanark Society Settler’ who came to Lanark Twp,
Lanark Co, ON in 1820, travelling on the ship Prompt, as a member of the
Lesmahagow Emigration Society. He was accompanied by a wife and six
children, including sons William and Robert. He almost became one of the
unhappy statistics of pioneer times. Soon after his arrival in Canada he
went out into  the Dalhousie bush, along with other men, in order to find
the land which had been allocated to him. He became lost in the forest and
might have perished but for the fact that he was accidentally discovered by
two fellow members of the emigration society, John Donald and James Duncan.
His land in Lanark was poor so he petitioned the government, asking to be
allowed to locate on an equal acreage in the new township of Horton in
Renfrew Co. His petition was granted. In 1827, he and his sons, William and
Robert, took up neighboring lots in Horton. He married Nellie Smith. They
had the following children:

i.      William Forrest; Born About 1798 in Lanark Co, Scotland. Occupation
        Shoemaker. William Forrest was the enumerator for the 1851 census in Horton
        Twp, Renfrew Co, ON20. This reference states his wife’s name was Marion (?),
        while reference22 indicates he married Janet Drynan of Ramsay Twp, Lanark
        Co. Perhaps he was married twice.He married Janet Drynan, daughter of (?) Drynan, 1835. 
ii.     Robert Forrest; Born in Lanark Co, Scotland. He married Martha Drynan,
        daughter of (?) Drynan, 1836. Reference22 indicates that Martha Drynan was
        from Ramsay Twp, Lanark Co, ON and a sister of Janet Drynan who married
        William Forrest.
iii.    Barbara Forrest; Born in Lanark Co, Scotland. She married John Penman22.

receiving his certificate at the age of 18. About that time he married the
widow Marion (Gilchrist) Alexander who was six years older than him and had
two children, Elizabeth (b 1798) and Robert (b about 1800) Alexander. It is
thought they both remained in Scotland. Elizabeth married John Cameron (b
1788) and Robert married Jean Stewart (b 1810). After their marriage John
and Marion initially lived (until 1811) in or near the village of Nemphlar
on the river Clyde (their first four children were baptized in the
