About John Hammond

Additional Curator's Note:

John Hamman, son of Phillip Hamman, generally used the Americanized version of his name, Hammond. Not all of his children adopted this spelling. Some of his siblings used Hammond but most retained Hamman. In addition, many historians spell the original name as HAMMON instead of HAMMAN. If primary documents exist showing one spelling, that is the preferred one to use on Geni. If no such documents exist, any of the three spellings are acceptable. Maria Edmonds-Zediker, Volunteer Curator, 7/25/2011.

John, born 1781, was living next door to his father Phillip in 1805, but by 1808 he lived in Floyd Co, and served as a Justice of the Peace about 1820.

His home became Morgan Co in 1823 and he was a Justice for several years until he retired. His farm consisted of some 5000 acres in 1850, and at time of death.
