    My ancestors came to America in 1763 aboard the Britannia, landing in Charles Town (Charleston), S.C. The family later moved to Alabama, Winston County, Mississippi (where my namesake founded Hamill Spring, still there, and where James Faris Hamill, my great-great grandfather, was captured in 1863, at the Battle of Vicksburg. The family eventually relocated to Texas.
