I can't make the connection at this point but will keep this information in mind as I continue to look. Thanks for replying. Martin Luther Hammer was born in June of 1861 in Tennessee.

My Grand Father Walter Hammer spoke about Robert Clyde Hammer and Wilbur Hammer (who both lived in Bristol, Tennessee until the 1950's) and Dr. John Hammer, who left Tennessee in the late 1880's to go to Idaho, as his father's (Martin Luther Hammer) relatives. I'm trying to research those links. My Grand Father Walter Hammer thought his grand parents were David Albert Hammer and Caroline Butler, but I have never been able to find any mention of them in any records.

There was and still is a concentration of Hammer people in North East Tennessee. The earliest records in Washington County have many references. One of the big groups, which my grand father Walter thought were related to us has the following simplified history (but I have never made the link to my family):

John Hammer (immigrant from Germany arrived in Philadephia, moved to North East Tennessee and married Margaret Kaupp or Cupp)

Their children were:
Jacob Hammer m. Catherine Bogart
Barbara Hammer m.James Range
Isaac Hammer, m. Susanna Bowman
Elizabeth Hammer m. Samuel Bogart
Joseph Hammer m. Susan Bowman
John Hammer m. Nancy Agnes McMahon
Jonathan Hammer m. (1) Polly McDaniel & (2) Sarah Bogart

Children of John Hammer (3 April 1771 - 28 Sept 1851)and Nancy Agnes McMahon (born 17 Aug 1763, Chester PA)were:

Rachel Hammer m. Samuel Bogart
John Hammer m. Martha White
Anna Hammer m. Jacob Range
Margaret Hammer m. Asa Cook
Mary Hammer m. ---- Booth
Betsy Hammer m. ?
Isaac Hammer m. Catherine Boart (married Washington County, Tennessee 29 May 1793)

Children of Jonathan Hammer and Sarah Bogart ( 2nd Wife):

Deborah Hammer m. Henry Young
Samuel B. Hammer m. Elizabeth Range
Catherine Hammer m. Wellington McMahan
Jonathan M. Hammer m. (1) Eliza thomas; (2) Kettie Havis

Children of William Hammer and Maria Ruth Temple

Jane Emily Hammer m. M. Wallace A. willoughby
Sarah Ruth Hammer m. Thomas J. Henderson
Josiah Temple Hammer m. Sarah Ann Latham
Julia Ann Hammer (died in infancy)
John Painter Hammer m. (1) Margaret Ann Jame or James
(2) Kate E. Snapp Haynes
David Holt Hammer m. Mary Zimmermann
James Cyrus Hammer m. Elizabeth Gray

Hope this helps. Randy Hammer, Atlanta, Georgia
