Does anyone know who John C. Hammond's parents were? John C. Hammond was born 9/13/1841 d. 11/23/1902 in Lawrenceburg, KY. He married a Martha Elizabeth Waterfill also known as "Mattie." I think his father was Presley Hammond and his mother was Dotia/Docia Taylor, but the only link I can find is him listed on the 1860 Census under Presley's family. I have no idea who Presley Hammond's parents were. I am descended from John C. Hammond through Frank E. Hammond (my great great great grandfather). He was born 9/5/1881 in Anderson Co. and died on 5/17/1963 in Shelby Co.
