Here is some information about his life and death. He was born to Rachel Faucette and James Hamilton, but Rachel was already married to someone else, who then divorced her. He died on July 12, 1804 from a wound inflicted in a duel with his best friend Arron Burr. In the duel, Arron shot Hamilton in the stomach, killing him. Hamilton's son was named Phillip. Philip Hamilton was Hamilton's oldest child. He died in a duel much like his father, before his father's duel, due to a fatal infected wound from a bullet lodged right above his hip. The duel was to protect his father's honor. He was married to Eliza Schuyler, but was also in a tangled relationship with Maria Reynolds, who was also married.
