THE HAMMOND FAMILY In Baldwin County

The Hammonds came to Georgia, from Virginia, during the Revolutionary War. The immediate occasion was the destruction of their property in Virginia by the Tories. Charles Hammond, who before the war was secretary of the Virginia House of Burgesses, brought his family for safety to his plantation in Georgia. He was accompanied by his brother, Col. LeRoy Hammond, who settled in South Carolina.

The first of the family to come to America was John Hammond, post captain of the British navy. He was a son of Charles Hammond, of Hampshire, England, and was grandfather of the Charles Hammond who came to Georgia. He was a member of an old English family. Tradition says that the first to come to England, came with William the Conquerer and that his name was Robert the Hammer, because of his fighting qualities. The members of the family have been good fighters and good patriots always.

Besides Col. LeRoy Hammond, who commanded a regiment in both the Indian War and Revolutionary War, there were four sons of Charles Hammond in the Revolutionary War. Three of these were officers; and the fourth and youngest, Charles, gave his life for the cause. One son, Col. Samuel Hammond, served after the war for nineteen years as military governor of Missouri, and later served South Carolina as Secretary of State.

Baldwin County is more concerned with the history of Captain Abner Hammond, a younger brother of Col. Samuel Hammond. It was he who brought the state papers from Louisville to Milledgeville. And it was he who founded the family in Milledgeville. He served Georgia as Secretary of State for a number of years, until his death in 1829. Born in Farmington Parish, in Virginia, in 1762, he had come to Georgia when a mere boy with the family of his father, the Charles Hammond, first, mentioned above.

An old family servant who was brought from Virginia, and is said to have lived to have been over a hundred years old, is responsible for the following story of him, Abner Hammond:

Left at home because of his youth, he ran away, raised a company of volunteers and joined his brother's regiment. And official records show that he joined his brother's regiment at the seige of Augusta, and that he was captain at twenty years of age.

Abner Hammond was married twice: first, to Anne Jones; and second, to Sarah Dudley, of Richmond, Va. The children of the first marriage were: Sarah, William, George, and Daniel. Sarah married William Wright, and their son, General Ambrose Ransom Wright, was distinguished in the Confederate army. His son, Captain William A. Wright, has served Georgia for forty years, as
Comptroller General.

Nine children of the second wife, Sarah Dudley, lived to be grown: Anne, married Peter Stubbs; Eliza married Baradel Stubbs; Charles married a Miss Pound; Abner died unmarried; John married Caroline Fort; Martha married Rev. Charles Stillman, famous Presbyterian minister; Eleanor married a Mr. Woods;
Catherine married Mr. Edwards; Mary married Evander McIver, Chief Justice of Alabama.

John Hammond, the last of his name in Baldwin County, served his county as Ordinary for many years. Although, except for the period of Radical rule, his service was continuous, after he was once in office he never made an active campaign for re-election. Election day was as quiet as any other with him. The people's knowledge of his good service and high character kept him in service. He was an earnest Christian, for over fifty years a steward in the Methodist church, of Milledgeville. On the completion of his fiftieth year as steward, a handsome Bible was presented to him by the church.

He was born in Louisville, Ga., in 1811, and died at "Midway" in 1885. He married Caroline Fort, daughter of Judge Moses Fort and niece of Dr. Tomlinson Fort, and great-niece of George Walton, signer of the Declaration of Independence. They had six children who lived to maturity.

John LeRoy Hammond was president of the First National Bank, of Savannah. He died in 1891, leaving a wife, Marion Morrell of Savannah, and three children.

Frances Martha married George W. Hollinshead. She has six children now living.

James Polk Hammond married Mary Ella Hull, of Savannah. He died in Griffin, Ga., in 1902, leaving five sons.

Caroline Fort married Chauncey Wright, of Milledgeville. She died in 1898, leaving one son.

Eudosia Moore married Robert Adams, a Presbyterian minister, formerly president of the Presbyterian College of South Carolina. They have six children.

Sarah Ellen married Irby Adams, of Eatonton, Ga. They had five children, four of whom are still living.

There are no members of the Hammond family by that name now living in Baldwin County. The grand-sons of John Hammond who bear his name are: John LeRoy Hammond, of Savannah, Ga.; Henry Hammond of Motts, Ala.; J. Woods Hammond, of Griffin, Ga.; Grattan Hammond, of Macon, Ga.; and Arthur Hammond, of Atlanta, Ga.

The only descendants now living in Baldwin County are Mrs. Frances Martha Hollinshead, a daughter and second child, and her children and grandchildren, and one great-grand-daughter, Elizabeth Ann Bell, who is the fifth in line from Abner Hammond, and the ninth in line from the post Captain of British navy, John Hammond, who chose America as his home about two hundred and fifty years ago.

The following note provided by Jon Posey (Aroostook3@aol.com), May 2003:

Charles Hammond, son of John Hammond and Catherine his wife, was born on November 19, 1716 in North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia according to the parish register. As a young man he received from his father a tract of land which undoubtedly became his dwelling place in Virginia, but unlike his father and grandfather before him, he pursued the more lucrative occupation of merchant. His wife was Elizabeth Steele, daughter of Samuel Steele and Catherine Hammond. The North Famham Parish Register states the following as children of Charles Hammond and his wife Elizabeth Steele:

Charles Hammond born 18th November 1747
Abner Hammond born 31st March 1752
Epaphroditus Hammond born 17th June 1753
Sarah Hammond 7th June 1755
Abner Hammond 25th January 1762
Catherine Hammond 30 December 1763

The birth of Charles Hammond's sons, Samuel, John and George who distinguished themselves in the Revolutionary War and the History of South Carolina are not recorded in the above register. Affidavits on file in the DAR Library of ancestors, portray Charles as an American Patriot aiding the Revolutionary Cause and a "Prisoner of War" relating to an incident when he was actually jailed by the Royalists of Virginia in hopes of catching his several rebel sons. Son Samuel was trained in Revolutionary Military tactics at Dumfries, Virginia later distinguishing himself as a Colonel in the Revolution in South Carolina.

In addition to political pressure exerted on Charles Hammond, we have evidence of economic reprisals taken against him by powerful Royalists of Richmond County, Virginia. The following is found in Courthouse Records of Virginia:

Deed Book 12
Page 301
Warsaw Courthouse Richmond County, Virginia
Signed September 7th, 1761

"Charles Hammond, of Richmond Colony of Virginia, Merchant, to John Morton Jordan, of Great Britian, Merchant, whereas Charles Hammond hath entered into bond of 117,805 pounds of Tobacco,
therefor grant... tract of land in Parish of North Farnham where Charles now lives which was given by deed of John Hammond father of the said Charles Hammond containing 100 acres more or less also three Negro slaves, 23 head of meat cattle, 20 hogs, 16 sheep, one servant man, John Dasbury and all other estate the said Charles Hammond possesses, both real and personal except his wearing apparel."

The above was signed in the presence of Robert W. Carter, Thomas Beele, Thomas Jett, Richard Parker and Christopher Dawson. On July 4th 1778, Charles Hammond and his wife Elizabeth conveyed to William Barber Jr. of the same Parish for a consideration of 530 pounds "land whereon Charles dwelleth being land given him in fee by his father and a portion thereof purchased by the said Charles Hammond of Charles Jones." Deed Book 14, page 531, Warsaw Courthouse, Richmond County, Virginia.

On June 5th 1779, Charles Hammond sold to Samuel Woolward a large tract of land for 500 pounds. This sale was recorded on the same page of the same Deed book as above tract and seems to close Charles Hammond's landed possessions in Virginia. Following his mid-summer 1779 land sales Charles Hammond migrated to South Carolina where Leroy and Samuel Hammond has already gone and established themselves.

The Last Will and Testament of Charles Hammond of Edgefield County, South Carolina is as follows:

Will of: Charles Hammond
Written: 18th July 1791
Proved: January 1795
Mentions: Beloved wife, Elizabeth; son-in-law Joshua Hammond; son Samuel Hammond; daughters: Catherine D. Hammond, Mrs. Mary Edis Hammond; son John Hammond; grandsons: Charles and Samuel; sons of John Hammond, Charles and Samuel; sons of Joshua and Sarah Hammond.
Witnessed by: William Covington, West Cook and David Sandridge.

Charles Hammond died in Edgefield County, South Carolina at the Plantation of New Richmond on the banks of Savannah River on August 15th 1794. Elizabeth Hammond, his wife, died in same place on July 3rd 1798. Both are buried in the family cemetery at New Richmond located just north of the interstate 1-20 bridge on the river crossing into Georgia. The plantation house is no longer standing and the cemetery has been plowed over. In the early 1980s the remaining tombstones were removed to another Hammond Cemetery located on Martintown Road in North Augusta, South Carolina.

Colonial-era graves reburied in family plot

By Carl Dawson
South Carolina Bureau

NORTH AUGUSTA - The skeletal remains of five Colonial-era residents of the town that became North Augusta were laid to rest Monday with their descendants.

The graves were discovered a week ago, when workers clearing land for a recreation center in Riverview Park found part of a marble grave marker.

Buried there were five members of the Hammond family who were instrumental in the development of Campbelltown, a settlement that was across the Savannah River from Augusta that later became North Augusta.

The most notable member of the family was Col. Samuel Hammond, a Revolutionary War hero who later became the first governor of the territory covered by the Louisiana Purchase. He died in 1842.

On Monday, while workers cleared the rest of the land, employees of Stephen D. Posey Funeral Home carefully exhumed the remains.

Each grave contained handmade bricks from its vault, dark, fibrous chunks of a heart-of-pine casket, a few square nails and some bones.

Leroy Chavous, who helped exhume more than 120 graves last year in the old Schultz Hill cemetery in North Augusta, lifted the contents of each grave onto white plastic body bags.

Historic burial plot found in N. Augusta

By Carl Dawson
South Carolina Bureau

NORTH AUGUSTA - Claude Hill, 70, stood on bulldozer-torn ground, surveying the graves of five ancestors, two of them Revolutionary War heroes.

“I thought this would happen long after I was dead and gone,” Mr. Hill said. “I’ve been looking for them for 30 years.”

Workers building a baseball diamond in Riverfront Park in North Augusta discovered part of a marble grave marker on Monday. Work was stopped so the site could be excavated and the remains, if any, could be reburied with descendants.

Mr. Hill, who has extensively researched the lives of his ancestors, said he remembers being taken to the site as a teen-ager.

“I was shown the indentation in the ground, but by the time I got interested, the indentation was gone,” he recalled.

The graves are those of key players in the history of the area and the nation and their family:

·      Charles Hammond, 1716-1794, who came to South Carolina to avoid Royalists in Virginia. He is Mr. Hill’s great-great-great grandfather.

·      John Hammond, 1745-1800, Charles Hammond’s elder son, who operated a tobacco business and a river ferry between Augusta and Campbelltown, an early settlement in what is now North Augusta. He died after being shot by Native Americans who may have been hired by competing tobacco magnate Ezekiel Harris.

·      Elizabeth Guinn Hammond, 1717-1815, John Hammond’s wife.

·      Elizabeth Hammond Garrett, John and Elizabeth Hammond’s daughter.

·      Col. Samuel Hammond, 1757-1842, John Hammond’s brother.

Col. Hammond’s legacy is long.

A monument to him on the 800 block of Greene Street in Augusta lists his war record.

Captain of a squadron of Minutemen in 1774, he survived battles near Norfolk, Va., in 1775. He was Colonel of Gen. George Washington’s Cavalry in 1779 and accompanied Gen. Nathaniel Greene in every important engagement in Virginia, Georgia and the Carolinas. He fought on the front lines at the battles of Eutaw, Cowpens and Kings Mountain, and fought against the sieges of Charleston, Savannah and Augusta.

“When my aunt died in 1942, something happened to Samuel’s sword,” Mr. Hill said. “I remember it was so heavy I could hardly lift it. They say at the battle of Savannah he was swinging it around and around, killing British right and left.”

He had a political career as well. A congressman in 1802, President Jefferson named him the first governor of the territory covered by the Louisiana Purchase in 1805. He was South Carolina’s secretary of state in 1831.

Mark Newell, an archaeologist with the Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of South Carolina, arrived at the site Wednesday afternoon, for a preliminary examination. He took photographs and measurements and borrowed one of the handmade bricks that formed a vault of one grave.

He said the find is valuable as a reference point for the site of Campbelltown and its suburbs of Falmouth and Snow Hill, which later also became North Augusta. The graves may lead to the sites of a store and fortress said to have been nearby. “On a less scientific level,” he said, “it’s a chance to preserve and honor part of the nation’s history. People like this are important. They made America what it is.”
