Mary Hamilton King

William & Mary Hamilton King. Who is Mary Hamilton married to William King, fleeing from Kentucky with Nancy Jane King (granddaughter) & husband Willaim King? Is Mary Hamilton King the same as Sarah “Sally” Lester? I am so confused.
I copied & pasted this:

Sarah " Sally" Lester, who was born ca 1779 in Fincastle, Montgomery County, Virginia, was married 1819 to William King of Pike County, Kentucky.

James Dell King, son of William and Sarah was born February 4, 1813 and killed about 1834 for fathering a female child by a young Cherokee by the name of Sarah Hamilton. The child was named Nancy and adopted by William King who brought the child to "Three Forks Sandy," Newton, West Virginia.

Nancy Hamilton King was reared by grandparents as their own child. She came to West Virginia in 1834. In 1849, Nancy married James Keen at Newton, West Virginia.

I am the great granddaughter of Dora Ellen Tawney Wilson, she was the daughter of John Hamilton Tawney & Elizabeth Jane Keen. Well, another question, the """ Hamilton """ Name; who, where, when, & how?

Thank you,
