Captain Samuel Hammond moved to Fairfax County, VA, as a young man and at age 28 he married Mary, a widow with three children by her former husband William Jenkins. In 1767 he and his family moved to North Carolina. He sold his house and plantation for cash with the stipulation that he could buy them back for the same price within a year. Obviously he wasn't sure if the move would work. When arriving in North Carolina, he contracted to conduct a school at which he would teach reading, writing, arithmetic, and surveying. In his fifties, he returned to Virginia to serve as Captain in the Virginia Continental Line in the American Revolution (this service has been accepted by the DAR as qualifying his descendants for membership). In Granville County, NC, he and his sons took the Oath of Allegiance to the independent state of North Carolina in 1778. Around 1780 to 1785, the family moved to Kershaw County, SC, where the family name of Hammond was already well known. There he developed a plantation in the vicinity of Heath Springs and Stoneboro. He lived to be 84. He and his wife were buried in the Old Hammond Family burial ground. The inscription for Samuel Hammond reads:"In memory of Samuel Hammond, son of Job and Amadine Hammond, born in Richmond County, Virginia, the 9th March, 1722 and died in October 1806."His wife's inscription reads: "In memory of Mary Hammond, wife of Samuel Hammond, born in Northumberland County, Virginia, May 2, 1726, died 1816."
