That would be Josiah HAM (1788-1858) of Stagg's Creek, Pulaski County, KY.
I have his father as John HAM (1759 - 1839) married Happy RYAN in Surry County, NC. Prior to Surry County, John lived in Culpeper County, VA.
His father was Joseph HAM of Orange County(?), VA (BEF 1730 - ABT 1794)who is believed to have married Seth STANTON. This Joseph died in Stokes County, NC.
That should make him in the same line as my co-author, Susan Bullock.
Please have somebody in your line test for DNA!
I will send an email.
