HAMMOND family, "went to America"...........
« on: Tuesday 22 July 14 04:24 BST (UK) »
Hello from New Zealand.........

I would like to obtain some details of the family of Thomas HAMMOND (1824 - 1909) & Miriam nee Hodnet(t). In particular of those who "went to America". All seven of their children were born at Mahorall, in Shropshire (UK).

Three are known to have emigrated to "America". The following information was discovered in the 1980's. I have no idea as to its accuracy.

1.Miriam Rhoda HAMMOND, born 1859. Married Richard Cadwallader WILLIAMS.
2.Thomas Edwin HAMMOND, born 1862.
3.Herbert Hodnett HAMMOND**, born 1864. Said to have married Emma..........

**His one known son, Kepler Vanfleet HAMMOND++, (marine officer now detective in a sheriffs office.)
**His one known daughter, Margaret Elaine.

++ A Google search of this name has led me to the "Find a Grave" website which provides his obituary. Whether this is the same man, son of Herbert Hodnett HAMMOND, I do not know.

I am hoping someone may be able to help fill in a number of the many gaps.

Hello New Zealand,
I found a Herbert Hammond in the 1910 US Census, living in Missouri and married to an Emma. He was born in England and his age puts his birth year at about 1866.

At that point, Herbert has 2 children, Arthur K, 19, born in West Virginia and Herbert E, 17, born in New York.

Moving forward to the 1930 US Census, Arthur K Hammond (born in West Virginia), shows Kepler V Hammond listed as his son and they lived in Pueblo, Colorado.  Kepler V was born in Colorado in 1925.

I hope this is a connection. You can find more on Familysearch.org, which is free.

Good Luck.
