Jesse Hammer was born in North Carolina or that part of North Carolina that became Tennessee. All of his children were by his first wife Rebecca. He was disciplined for his marriage out of unity by the Lost Creek MM on January 28, 1809. Rebecca and their four children were received by the Lost Creek MM on July 27, 1816. She died prior to May of 1823 when Jesse was disciplined for his marriage out of unity.

He married his second wife, Lilah, in Knoxville, Blount, Tennessee. She was probably some kin of his father’s third wife, Mary Stanley Underwood. Jesse transferred with three children by certificate to the Newberry MM in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 27, 1825; however, the Newberry Monthly Meeting did not receive a letter of transfer for the family. Since his wife, Lilah, was not a Quaker, the family probably joined another congregation. (op. cit., Hinshaw)
