JOHN HAMILTON FAWCETT was born to Charles Fawcett and Margaret Hodge in 1815 at their farm 5.5 miles north of Millboro Spring, Bath County, Virginia. He acquired his first land in Bath County from his older brother (Albert Fawcett) in 1851 and their father died son after (1852). John H. Fawcett is not listed in the 1840 census of Bath County. Between 1851 and 1859 John and Albert Fawcett bought back the old Fawcett place, after it was divided among many of the Williams heirs. John was in poor health, so he deeded his half of the farm to Albert in 1857. John continued to live in Bath County, making his last land transaction in 1866, the year he died. He is probably buried in the Fawcett cemetery on the Charles/Albert Fawcett farm.
