Hello everyone, I am having problems tracing my Great Grandfather Robert Hamilton. The information I first have is from the 1891 census where he is married to Lettice Hamilton (nee Jacob) with a young family including my Grandfather William. I also find him in the 1901 census. He was born about 1845 in the county of Roscommon in Ireland. Having searched the Origins Network, and 1837 online for his marriage etc. and earlier censuses with no luck, I need some suggestions or help. I also believe from correspondence with an Aunt that he was in the Indian Army (rank not known). I am guessing he married about 1885 and would have been in the Indian Army before that. Not the best of surnames to research I know but any help or hints would be most appreciated.
