I too am interested in the Saul Mercer family. Why do you think Saul's middle name was Coleman? I have no record of that. Do you know when and where Laura Mercer Hammond died or where she is buried? She must have died before 1910.

In what cemetery is George W. Hammond buried? Who are the others from Colquitt Co. who are buried with him? Who was his second wife?

Sharon, What is the name of the cemetery where George W. Hammond is buried in Eagle Lake, Polk Co., FL? Also, I'd really like to know where you found that Saul Mercer's middle name was Coleman. Do you know when & where George Hammond married Martha McKinnie? Thanks for your help.

Thanks so much. I've spent some time on your family tree. You have some info I don't have, and I have some you don't have. I believe you are mistaken on some of the children of Saul Mercer and are missing several. If you want to discuss further, please contact me crabtree at rose dot net.

I do not see the name Coleman as a name for Saul Mercer in the 1860 US census, Colquitt Co., GA. In fact, I have never seen the name Coleman as part of Saul's name on any document created during his lifetime.

Interesting family isn't it. Are you related to the Mercers? I have some more pics. to load when I get time. I'm working on several trees,so I do a little on each,here and there.Thanks for the information, and I would appreciate any that you have. Sharon

It's true that a George Washington Hammonds was buried in Robeson Co. NC; he was born 1907 & died 1985. The George Washington Hammond who married Laura Mercer and then Martha Pyles was born 1859 and died 1948 in Polk Co. FL. These two G.W. Hammonds are not the same person, but they were probably related perhaps distantly.
