  • Notes 
    • Dr. Tropha's Notes:
      Searching some more, we find that Christiana and William Peters had at least one child whom they named after Hamilton H. Jackson-5680:

      From http://www.bklyn-genealogy-info.com/Worship/StAnns/StAnnsBaptismsAlpha.htm

      Source: “Births, Marriages, Deaths from the Original Records of St. Ann's (Episcopal) Church at Brooklyn, New York by Josephine Frost (1917), Vol. 3-5”.
      The pages on the [micro]film were copied by Pat Eckhardt and transcribed by Linda Clark.

      SURNAME: Peters
      FIRST: Hamilton Halliburton Jackson
      BORN: 8/3/1845
      BAPTISED: 3/24/1846
      FATHER: Peters, William
      MOTHER: Christiana A.
      -------
      The New York World, Friday, February 16, 1872, Page 8, Column 6:

      “MARRIED.
      PETERS—DIXON — On Tuesday, February 13, at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Brooklyn, by the Rev. Charles H. Hall, Hamilton H. J. Peters to Clementine, youngest daughter of the late Henry Dixon, all of this city.”

      This gives us her father’s name, but not that of her mother. Tragically, Hamilton H. J. Peters also passed away when he was still young, as New York City records and a newspaper announcement attest:

      From the Italian Genealogical Group's New York City Death Index at www.italiangen.org:

      Surname Given Name Age Month Day Year Certificate Number County
      Peters Hamilton H 41 y Apr 21 1886 561378 Manhattan


      From The New York Herald, Tuesday, April 27, 1886, Page 8, Column 5:

      “PETERS.—On Saturday, April 24, HAMILTON H. J. PETERS, in his 41st year.
      Funeral services at Grace Church, Brooklyn, on Tuesday, April 27, at two o'clock P. M.”

      The date of death stated in the death notice differs with that of the Death Certificate cited on the Italian Genealogical Group’s website, so more research needs to be done to determine which of the dates is the correct one [based on previous experience, I would trust the date given in the newspaper more than the transcription of the Death Index].

      --------
      According to the 1880 census record Hamilton spent his last days in an institution.

      21 Apr 1886. Given the date of burial, this is probably a mis-transcription.
