6)     gif Sufflina (Supplina) Hamilton Household - 1880 US Census Index
  It's so little wonder why Supplina Hamilton used his name in print as little as possible. First off, it was a feminine sounding name. Though rare, when Supplina is recorded in the census it is generally a woman's name. Second, ... no one could spell it right. His name is continually misspelled in census records. The 1880 Census is a classic example. It took me a long time to find the full record because his name was spelled Sufflina. Here in this index card version of the census record it's misspelled twice on the same document. First as Surflina(s?) and second as Sufflina! Supplina's tombstone just reads, S. Hamilton. Later, when Jane died she made sure the world got his name straight when she put on her tombstone, 'Jane, Wife of Supplina Hamilton.'
7)     jpg Suplina and Jane Judd Family: 1850 US Census. Uncle of Supplina Hamilton. Mason, Co. Illinois.

8)     pdf Suplina Judd - Drummer - 1 Regiment (Harris') New York Militia - War of 1812 Service Records
  Supplina Judd was born in 1774. He would have been 38 years old with a family in 1812. His son Suplina was born in 1808, so this had to be Supplina Sr. It appears from the records that Supplina served in two units from New York. One as a private and another as a drummer. Here's a note from the Library of Congress web site on the age of those men who served in the War of 1812: "Most of the men serving were of the usual military age (20s-30s), but a few were outside that range, such as Drury Hudson, who was 60, and Solomon Stanton, who was 54."
9)     pdf Suplina Judd - Private - Swift's and Dobbin's Regiment 1814 - War of 1812 Service Records

This record shows that though the Hamilton's were living in Linn, County Oregon in the 1860 Census and Marion, Co Oregon in the 1870 Census that they were in Umatilla, County Oregon during much of the 1860's. Supplina Hamilton is remembered as being appointed the first county Commissioner of Umatilla County in 1863.
12)     pdf Supplina Charles Shult - Death Record - Sorento, Bond County, Illinois - April 24, 1924
13)     pdf Supplina Hamilton - 1842 Virginia Cass County Illinois School Record
  This single type written page summarized Joyce (Stover) Hamilton's research into the early Cass and Morgan County, Illinois school records searching for information on the John and Altha (Judd) Hamilton children. The Illinois School Records along with William M. (McCord) and James M. Hamilton's Civil War records and along some later Census records and voter roll records provide the evidence that we have to date of the Hamilton family in Illinois. The school records with the township and range survey coordinates, pinpoint (within a 36 square mile area) where Supplina was living in 1842. It was the Virginia Township, Cass County, Illinois. He would have been nine years old. It's interesting that he was not listed with his siblings of school age. They were perhaps living with different family members and / or friends in other townships as it's assumed that the family was orphaned around 1840. As Joyce notes in her research, the other Hamilton family in Township 14 N do not appear to be related. I've tried to tie them into our family... but the there is no evidence to date to show any relation.
14)     pdf Supplina Hamilton - Last Sermon - February 1905
  This is a PDF version of a grainy photocopy of a booklet that was published containing Supplina Hamilton's 'Last Sermon.' The sermon booklet was published 'by his request' after his death in 1905. The sermon puts forth a reasoned position on the time for the 'Communion or the Lord's Supper.' We (I) have no evidence that Supplina himself used the title, 'Reverend.' In fact, the title used by the Christian Church/Church of Christ in their documents is consistently 'Elder Hamilton.' Regardless, the editor or this booklet gives Supplina's name as 'Rev. S. Hamilton.' This copy was in the possession of Connie (Hamilton) Boone the daughter of Hugh Hamilton and the GGGranddaugher of Supplina.
15)     pdf Supplina Hamilton - Last Will and Testament - 1905
  This is the file that cleared probate for Supplina Hamilton in Whitman County, WA in March 1905. Supplina named his wife Jane (Sumpter) Hamilton as his Executrix. The will lists the names and residences of his children, his assets and confirms the location of the section of land that he owned Southeast of St John, WA.

18)     jpg Supplina Hamilton and Sarah Jane Sumpter - Marriage Record - June 10, 1858
  Supplina Hamilton and Sarah Jane Sumpter Marriage Record. June 10, 1858. Linn County, Oregon. I believe this marriage register entry was based on a marriage letter certifying ('a certificate') to the county government that a lawful marriage occurred. Once the signed certifying document was copied into the county marriage record it was recorded and recognized by the state. "[Marriage of] Supplina Hamilton to Jane Sumpter. Territory of Oregon. Linn, County. This is to certify that the undersigned, a minister of the gospel, did on the 10th Day of June 1858, join in lawful wedlock Supplina Hamilton and Jane Sumpter by their mutual consent in presence of Perry Thomas and Joseph Thomas witnesses.

JM Powell was medical doctor living in Spokane, WA and a direct decendant of John A. Powel the friend of Supplina Hamilton and Captain of the Powel wagon train of 1851. JM Powell wrote to Supplina Hamilton in late 1899 asking him to pen an account of the trip for his family history. Supplina obliged and in January of 1900 wrote a long and detailed letter to JM Powell telling of his memory of the trip West, as he 'saw the elephant' as a young man. We are indebted to the Powell family for asking Grandpa Supplina to write it and then publishing this wonderful letter.

29)     pdf Supplina Hamilton References in Pioneer Oregon Disciples of Christ Newspapers
  Supplina Hamilton, “S. Hamilton”, born in 1832 in New Lexington, Morgan county, Illinois was a 19 year old Oregon Trail pioneer arriving in the Willamette Valley in Sept 1851, a teamster on the Powell wagon train. Supplina wrote that he came west to ‘grow up with the country’ and ‘see the elephant’ (have an adventure), and that he did. He became a respected western renaissance man of sorts on the Oregon and Eastern Washington frontier: Blacksmith, farmer, indian war vet, patented inventor, rural doctor, county commissioner, school administrator and dedicated Disciples of Christ minister. Supplina married Sarah Jane “Jane” Sumpter in Linn County, Oregon in 1858. They raised a large family in Oregon and Washington Territory, finishing their days on their 800 acre wheat farm just south of St John, Washington. The references to Supplina below are in pioneer newspapers affiliated with the Disciples of Christ movement. The publications covered the northwest frontier and the church work of the denomination. The papers were mainly published from Monmouth, Oregon where members of the church established the first college in the region in 1856. That college is now Western Oregon University.
30)     pdf Supplina Hamilton Yakima Indian War Record File Transcriptions
  Joyce Hamilton inquired a number of years ago after Supplina Hamilton's Military Records (I believe with the State of Oregon). She was told the documents were too fragile to copy but the archivest hand transcribed them for her. These two pages are rich in information. One of the men who swore an affidavit as to Supplina's participation in the Yakima Indian War was George Miller. George kept a diary of this Company's time in the field. The affidavits may have been needed for Supplina to get a pension later in life and/or to receive the service medal that Supplina proudly wore on his chest in one of the later photos we have of him.
