William B Hammack of Loachapoka
Posted by: Sally Bigwood (ID *****6980) Date: April 21, 2012 at 13:15:03

I am trying to identify William B Hammack (b. 1817/1826? in Georgia) who later lived in Loachapoka. He had many children including Paschal (b.1855/58), William D (b. 1852) and Jonathan David (b.1856/58) and Inez (b. 1865/1870?; later McKenney).
The Alabama Marriages List reports that William married Suzanne Liggin in 13 April 1848 and that she died in 1902. However, weirdly, the 1870 census lists William’s wife as ‘Sarah’ and the 1880 census says her name is ‘Elizabeth’. A woman of many names.
1.Does anyone understand why William’s wife had so many names?
2.Does anyone know anything about William’s oldest daughter, b. 1851/55, “S.E.” (1870 census) and “Eugene” (1880 census)? I believe she married Robert Washington Short on 31 July 1890 in Columbus and died before 1900.
Any help would be much appreciated.
