Amos L Rowland + Sarah "Sallie" Hammock /GA
Posted by: Hazel Clack (ID *****2746) Date: April 26, 2009 at 17:41:01

Does anyone have any information on the following: Sarah "Sally" Hammock b abt 1854 in Ga; m Amos L Rowland b GA; d before 1910 in GA??

Today, I finally found the surname of mygggrandmother - Hammock. And the name of her husband...Amos L Rowland.
All I knew about her until now is what I had found on the 1910 census for Laurens Co, GA. Her dau "Lovie" died in 1912 due to childbirth.

My step-greatgrandmother, 2nd wife of Columbus W Warren had written out a Warren family lineage for my mother and she had given it to my brother. It lists no dates or places or parents for either Amos L Rowland or his wife Sallie Hammock.

Sarah Roseland 56 (transcription error-should be Rowland) lister as mother-in-law to head of household
Clarra Roseland 10 (transcription error-should be Rowland) lister as sister-in-law to head of household

I've searched Ancestry.com today and have not found anything on her in earlier censuses...or later censuses. I did find a Sarah Jane Rowland b 2 Feb 1853 d 25 Nov 1937. She is buried in the Sardis Baptist Church cemetery, Alamo, Wheeler Co, Ga. Next to her is James Alford Rowland. I don't have dates for him.

I found another Amos L Rowland on the 1910 census for Laurens Co, Ga. He was age 79 and his wife Annie was 77...and I found the Civil War pension records for him and after his death, his wife applied for her widows pension. I believe this is probably the Amos L Rowland that is buried in the Woodard Cemetery and is possibly the father of Amos L Rowland who married Sarah Hammock.

Any information, no matter how tiny is greatly appreciated.

Hazel
