About Mary Hammond

Additional Curator's Notes:

Family lore claims that Mary was descended from Benjamin Franklin. Sorry, just not true! If your ancestor's surname is Franklin and there is a family tradition that your ancestor is descended from Benjamin Franklin, this is a fable. The reason for this is simple. Ben Franklin had one son who lived to maturity. That son had one son. He (i.e. Ben Franklin's grandson) had no sons. IF Mary was related to Ben Franklin, it was not through a direct descendancy. To date, I have not found a link for Mary to Ben Franklin's family. Maria Edmonds-Zediker, Curator, 7/23/2011
