Ham family of Wolfeborough - Revolutionary War era
Posted by: GregH (ID *****9222) Date: December 03, 2003 at 18:59:20

Our Lt. Moses Ham and his wife Anna Grafton only lived in Wolfeborough during the Revolutionary war era. Moses has a short write-up in the "History of the Town of Wolfeborough New Hampshire", by Parker.
His mother was Anna Wentworth, a cousin of the colonial Governor of New Hampshire.
I am looking for any help in researching the Ham family, while in Wolfeborough. The family had been soldiers for several generations going back to 17th century Dover, NH.
I'm guessing that Moses and his family moved to Wolfeborough during the War era, possibly to help guard Wolfeborough, and the Governor's residence. Their family history, for the short time they were in Wolfeborough, was probably fairly closely tied to that of the Wentworth family.
