Re: Hammon in Ohio
I think what you are doing is wonderful. Thanks so much for helping us. I agree that typing/spelling weren't very consistent in those days!
I'm trying to determine the parentage of a Jacob Hammon who married Mary Beck. They were in several counties of Ohio, then moved to IL. I THINK Jacob's parents were George and Catherine. In 1850, they all appeared within a few pages of each other, in Montgomery County, Germantown, indexed as HUMMON.Then George/Catherine disappeared, maybe died, county unknown.
I'd be curious to see what info you have on Jacob, Mary, George and Catherine. The women may be known as Mrs only.
Thanks for any assistance you can give me. There weren't a lot of Jacob's in Ohio, and I've already ruled out Mordecai as his dad.
