Hammonds in Kanawha County, WV
My great-grandmother was Julia Hammond(s) who married James Lewis
Martin. Julia was born in Marmet, VA (Kanawha County, WV NOW) in
1853 She was, I think, the illigitimate daughter of Lucy Hammond.
Julia also had a brother named Edward, who fought in the Civil War.
I can find nothing in the census for any Hammond prior to 1850 and
Lucy disappears after the 1880 census and is not in the state death
book, either. Apparently, she was a housekeeper and stayed with
various families. Can anyone give me any leads or give me some
