I am researching my mother's side of the family and have worked back to a Franklin Hammond (b. 1804, d. 1852) who married an Elizabeth Phippenny (also spelled Phippen, Phippeny or Phippenney), (b. 1811, d. 1885) and lived in or around Pompey, NY.
They had 8 children; Amelia (b. 1830), Amarcia (b. 1833), Adelia (b.1836) Clestia (b. 1838), Arrielia (b. 1840), Francelia (b. 1842), Adelbert (b. 1849) and Chrissena (b. 1854).
So far I can find no other information about either Elizabeth or Franklin.
From seaching the internet, I see that one of the first settlers around the Lake George area was a Joseph Phippeny, and I was wondering if Elizabeth might be related to him.
