About Johannes Hammann


“John was confirmed at the Tohickon Reformed Church in Bucks Co. in 1756, married there and had his first child baptized there. The family disappears from the records at Tohickon after 1761 and then shows up in Loudoun County, Virginia where John Hamman is listed as a titheable from 1767 to 1771 and is named in the special 1787 tax enumeration (Margaret L. Hopkins, Loudoun County Titheables and Slaveholders 1756-1786 [Baltimore], 1991 and Nettie Schreiner-Yantis, The 1787 Census of Virginia). John moved to Shenandoah County, in late 1787 and settled on Mill Creek, west of Mt. Jackson. He purchased 104 acres on Mill Creek from Adam Cook in July 1788 (Shen. Co. Deed Book "G", p. 112). A sketch of the Hammon family in the Centennial Biographical History of Richland County Ohio, gives some background on this family, and says that George, son of John, was born in New Jersey. George is listed as a native of Pennsylvania in the 1850 census of Richland County but the family may very well have lived a while in New Jersey, giving rise to this tradition. A ‘Hannes’ and Maria Hamman had a daughter Susanna christened at the Lutheran Church at Greenwich in Warren County, New Jersey in 1779 (across the river from Bucks Co. Pa.) This could indeed be the same Susanna Hamman, daughter of John (above) who married James Neer in Loudoun Co. Va. in 1798. John is not in the tithe records of Loudoun County after 1771 and only shows up there again in the 1780s. His daughter Barbara was baptized by the minister of the Middletown, Maryland Lutheran Church on a circuit to Virginia in 1783. This is a twelve year gap, when John and his family may have gone back north and lived in Pennsylvania and/or New Jersey. John and Mary appear as baptismal sponsors in the Zion Church on Stony Creek in 1800 and several of their children were communicants there (Records of Zion Pine Church, op cit) . John Hammon wrote a will 14 Dec. 1805 and it was probated Jan. 13, 1806 (Shen. Co. Will Book "F", p. 397). He mentioned ‘children’ of his deceased daughters, Eva and Maria and made his sons, Thomas and George administrators of his estate. The real estate was to be sold after the death of his wife and proceeds divided equally among his children or their heirs. A final settlement of his estate was submitted to the court in 1822. The settlement refers to payments for support of the widow as late as December, 1814 and identifies the husbands of most of the daughters but does not identify all the children or heirs of the older daughters (Shen. Co. Will Book "N", pp. 127-8). (Hammons Genealogy Page, Germany, C. Richard Matthews, Internet)
