Hammond Notes


How many of you have seen the research done by Harry Stanz, on proposing Martin Hammond as our immigrant ancestor? I'd love to be in contact with Harry if that's possible, but have not been able to find him. If anyone knows, let Jim Hammond know. (Address on Hammond Researcher Page)

For anyone that is not aware I am working on the history of Mt. Tabor Baptist Church, which is the oldest Baptist Church in Forsyth Co. I have alot of information on most of the preachers and deacons and some on the members. Check out the Forsyth website for a list of the members in the 1800's and also the deacons and some of the information that we have gathered. If you locate someone on the list, I will do my best to help you with the information that I have.
At the moment I need some help! Can anyone help me to locate information on William M. and Mary Jones. William joined Mt. Tabor Baptist Church in Dec. 1871 by letter. He at that time was a licensed preacher and ordained deacon. He was ordained a minister December 1874. He served as pastor of Corinth in Pickens in 1877. He was selected as pastor of Mt. Tabor 9/1878, at the request of pastor Alfred Webb, to serve the rest of the year, which turned out to be until 11/1878. The last mention of him
in the Mt. Tabor minutes is September 1878 when he is called as pastor.
Any help in the search for this person and his family would be greatly

I am researching Avis (or possibly Avirilla HAMMOND), who married William Jubb on June 16, 1792 in Anne Arundel County, MD. William and Avis JUBB have three children William, James and John. James JUBB and his first two wives have 12 children. Margaret Anne JUBB is one of the 12 who marries William WATKINS on June 27, 1846.
Capt. William JUBB married Francis WATKINS, daughter of Noble and Ann WATKINS on February 6, 1853.
Are you familiar with Avis (or Avirilla) HAMMOND, William WATKINS or Noble, Ann and Francis WATKINS? If so, can you tell me about them. We have a pretty good amount on the JUBB family and their relations, but have not pursued the more common names as of yet. I would be happy to share what we have.

Well thought out research: On a Watkins web page I found somewhere, there was an Annie Jane Hammond (1855-1941) who married a Watkins. She died in Atlanta, fulton county, Georgia. Also had NOLAND and NOLEN on this page. Now where the heck did I see this?!!!
