Dear HAM(M)ON(D)(S) and CHAPMAN Lists:

My message found in the HAM(M)ON(D)(S) Lists of RootsWeb, Subject: Re: [HAMMOND] Elizabeth Hammond of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, mid 1700's; Date: Mon, 5 Apr 2010 21:20:28 -0500, is re-printed below:

"Dear List:

"My HAM(M)ON(D)(S) Family genealogical record can be found at:

"My most distant known ancestor (on my mother's side) was John HAMMOND(S), born about 1760, place unknown; died after 27 Jul 1820, Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, KY. He married:

"(1) Polly (Mary) DENNEY on 3 Sep 1782 at Wilkes County, NC. She was born about 1763 at Surry County, NC and died about 1797 at Wilkesboro, Wilkes County, NC.

"(2) Rachel Rebecca JOHNSON (banns) about 1797 at Wilkes County, NC. She was born on 6 Feb 1764 in North Carolina and died about 1835 in Texas.

"I have tried, without success, to connect my GGGG grandfather, John HAMMOND(S), to the HAMMOND family of Ann Arundel County, MD.

"My first cousin, William Howard HAMMOND, is a direct male descendant of our GGGG grandfather, John HAMMOND(S). His Y-DNA has been tested and found to be of Anglo-Saxon descent - It belongs to Haplogroup I1 (M253).

"Question: Has any male descendant of any HAMMOND family that resided in the Ann Arundel County, MD area c1700 - 1760 participated in Y-DNA testing? If so, I would love to compare my cousin's DNA findings to ascertain if there is a match."

As stated in the original post, my first cousin, William Howard HAMMOND, is a direct descendant of John HAMMOND(S) circa 1760 - 1820. My record indicates that John lived in Wilkes County, NC when he married (1) Polly (Mary) DENNEY on 3 Sep 1782. After Polly died in 1797, he married (2) Rachel Rebecca JOHNSON (Banns) and moved his family to Lincoln County, KY. He died in Kentucky about 1820.

Y-DNA tests have concluded that William Howard HAMMOND is a perfect 67 Marker Match with Daniel Matson CHAPMAN and Henry Louis CHAPMAN Sr.

The Y-DNA of both of these gentlemen has been traced back to Nicholas CHAPMAN. Given that Daniel and Henry Louis' results are identical with William's and that they both descended in a direct lineal fashion from two different sons (Joseph and Samuel) of Nicholas CHAPMAN (born 1746) this would prove that these CHAPMAN families are related to my HAMMOND(S) family at least by c1700-1725 when Nicholas' father, Thomas CHAPMAN first appears in Ann Arundel County, MD records.

Barbara MATSON is the contact for her CHAPMAN family. She and I are searching for our most distant common ancestor and ask if members of the HAM(M)ON(D)(S) and/or CHAPMAN Lists may be able to help.

Barbara can be reached by Email at:
