About Jilson P. Hammond

Additional Curator's Notes:

Jilson P. Hammond was born in Floyd County, Kentucky. He married there and his children were born there. About 1843, Johnson County was formed from portions of Floyd and Lawrence Counties. So, without changing residence, his early children were born in one county and his later children were born in another.

Regarding his son by Elizabeth Hale: Elizabeth's husband died prior to 1840, deep in debt. They had numerous minor children at the time of his death. The county court bound out the children as apprentices. Jilson took custody of one child, Mial Hale, born in 1831, as his apprentice. Mial was later apprenticed to some one else. George W. Hale, was born in 1842, a couple of years after her husband's death and their other children were taken away from Elizabeth by the Floyd County court. A descendant of George W. Hale (Elizabeth Hale's son) perfectly matches the Y-DNA of Phillip Hamman descendants. Elizabeth's husband William Henderson Hale died in 1840, yet George W. Hale was born in 1842. Through the process of elimination, his biological father was likely Jilson Hamman.

Jilson and family remained in Kentucky through the Civil War. After the war they moved to Kansas, and from there, to Cass County, Missouri, where his brother had settled before the war. Jilson was buried on the Hamman homestead in Cass County, near the Hickory Baptist Church. For some time, this plot of land was known as the Hamman Family Cemetery. The plot was later annexed by or given to the church and is now known as the Hickory Grove Cemetery. Several Hamman/Hammond graves can still be found there.
