The family mantra for the past 40 yrs has been "John Hammond was born in Donegal & died in Donegal". No one seems to know exactly when. And there are so many John Hammonds.

He is my ggrandfather & married Margaraet Miller 26 Dec 1864; stated on the certificate when he married that he was "widowed". His father's name was Andrew. They had 10 children. Rest of the mantra is that he "died a young man". Their last child, Rebecca, was born 1888.

Margaret managed to get all (except two of the youngest boys)to America between 1895 & 1901. She regularly sent money for the two left behind but the money never found its way to the legal guardian. But that's another story.
Her Miller family preceeded them & were there to help w/the children. Margaret made the trip in 1901 w/Rebecca.

Any help on John's B&D dates would be so greatly appreciates. This has been a dead end for so many family geneologists before me.
