I have info on the descendants (several generations) of Ephraim Hammack (c.1798-1855) and Cynthia Helen Hix (1904-1895). Cynthia's parents are my ancestors.

Mark,

I've replied to your email address with an outline of what I have on the family. If you could review it and let me know of any errors, I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks,

Jim. I am researching the family of MAHALAH HAMMACK,, b. 13Oct.1813, Padukah, KY, d 29Dec 1888, Blair, NE, md. abt. 1830 to JOHN HENRY MILLER, b.4July1807, Kentucky, d. 25May 1885, Blair, NE. Children: Mary, John, Sarah, Charlotte, Amanda, Emily and Clara, plus two early babies who didn't survive.

I am interested to learn Mahalah's parents' and siblings' names. My husband, Robert Arlington Winegar, is Mahalah and John's GtGtGtgrandson.

Ann,

I don't know how much help I can be - I can provide some speculation about Mahala's siblings and parents.

Have you found a marriage record for John and Mahala? They are in Perry Co., IN for the 1850 census and have a daughter Susanna listed - perhaps one of the early babies who didn't survive?

Do you know anything about John Henry's Miller family. There was an Elizabeth Miller who married a George Hammock in Perry county, IN on 12 Nov 1837. I always wondered if the two Millers and two Hammocks weren't brothers and sisters?

Both couples were in Perry Co., IN for the 1850 census and then in Wayne Co., IA for the 1860 census. They aren't living next door to each other, but I think it isn't just a coincidence.

Jim. No, I have not found a marriage record for John and Mahala. I have not found birth records, other than what was handed down with Earle Miller's genealogy work. See my earlier query.

I estimated that John and Mahala were married ca 1830. I like your speculation about Susanna..an early baby who did not survive. No, I don't know if the two Millers married two Hammacks, but that's a good theory. We'll keep looking.

I did get to see Mahala's Family Bible this past June. She did not write one line in the Bible. I don't believe she could read or write. Her grandson, James Wesley Miller's family data is in the book. Her name is on the cover of the Bible, partially scratched out.

I also have a photo reported to be of Mahalah. Her gt.grandson's wife has a huge oval photo, with a curved glass front, of a lady she understands to our Mahalah. I took a photo of the picture, through the glass. I am interested to know if anyone has a photo of Mahala Hammack Miller to compare with mine.

Ann,

I'm not familiar with Earle Miller's work and didn't see it mentioned in your earlier posts.

Did you notice in the census data I posted that George and Elizabeth Miller Hammock named one of their daughters Mahalah - another coincidence or more proof of a connection to your line?

The 1870 and 1880 census both state that Mahala could not write. She must have been able to read - at least they didn't state she couldn't and did state John could not read or write.

Is it o.k. to send you an outline file of what I have accumulated for you to compare with your research?

Jim

Jim. Thanks for your reply. Absolutely, please send an outline of the Hammack's you have.

Secondly, the 1850 US Census, Perry Co. IN that lists "Susanna", must be a nickname, because (John Henry and Mahalah's) Amanda Rosetti Miller would have been 3 years old in 1850. Amanda was b. 03February, 1847, in Indiana.

Jim, Yes, I noticed, too, that George and Elizabeth Miller Hammock named a daughter Mahalah. In another message, I found information that George and Elizabeth Hammock are buried in Corydon, IA. That message lists a second wife, and step-son.

Thanks to all for assisting my work here. Ann Winegar
