Our Christian Heritage

The Hamilton family and many of the families from which we descend has a rich Christian heritage. As you go back along many of the lines whether it be Hamilton, Hudson, Osborn or many others you will find many sorts of christian men and women. Some were preachers and teachers while others were just laymen and christian ladies. Our christian heritage is something we are very proud of and I would encourage anyone reading this whether you are family or not to consider accepting Christ yourself.


Rev. Elam Stevenson and four of his sons were all Methodist ministers. Lydia (Payne) Stevenson was a faithful help meet who consecrated her life and home to the Lord.

Thomas Telford Hamilton was a faithful servant of God all of his life. He taught the bible in Sunday School class at Crosskey Methodist Church.

Rev. Elam M. Hamilton had been the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Wyoming IL for nearly 32 years upon his death in 1996. Lura (Osborn)Hamilton raised sixteen children taking them faithfully to the house of the Lord.

Four of Elam and Lura's sons surrendered to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. David, Roger, Anthony(Tony), and Joseph.
