The list above came from a volume of miscellaneous DAR typescripts at the New York City Public Library. No attribution was given to transcriber or DAR chapter. Although this list doesn't give locations or more information, it's still valuable as perhaps some of the people never had obits or were buried with no headstone. We hope that by posting it some of your "where did they go" questions will be solved, at least as far as knowing when an individual passed away.

To help your fellow researchers, if you have recognize any of the persons on this, please email the site coordinators so that it can be added to this page. For further information about individuals you do recognize, please contact the county historical societies or place a query on Rootsweb's queries board.

IMPORTANT: We thank you in advance for directing ALL requests for further information about persons listed to the historians at the Herkimer County Historical Society, not to the site coordinators or transcriber of this file. Corrections or additional information should be sent to the coordinators of this website to post with these listings.

Hammond, Guard or Quand? is my other gg-Uncle, Gardner Hammond (b. 1842 Cherry Valley, NY, d. 19 Mar 1896, Sprout Brook, NY). Gardner was married to Hattie M. Norton, b. July 1849 in NY.

Albert and Gardner were brothers, and the sons of Thomas P. and Phebe (Mulford) Hammond of Sprout Brook, NY.
