a. Note:   Record of marriage in Lunenburg Co, VA not found, but according to Martha's statement before the court in Monroe Co, IN in 1843 when she applied for her Rev War widow's pension there, she and Joseph were married by ' Parson Craig'...who was a minister at that time in Cumberland Parish, VA which included parts of Lunenburg Co, Parson Craig's records of the sacraments he administed to his flock were all lost. Possibly during the Civil War fighting around Petersberg, VA where one of his direct descendants lived and whose home was 'sacked' by Union Army troops.
 Knowledge of marriage, children's names are from Martha's widow's pension claim in the 1845 Monroe Co, IN court where she moved about that time from Surry Co, NC with her daughter Martha 'Patsy' Hammon Collins and Patsy's husband John Collins. Martha was living though 'aged and infirm' in 1845 and
 dead by 1850 census when John Collins and family remained living there.
 Pension claim in Monroe County gives Martha's age in 1845 as 90 years old.
  Joseph served 14th VA Regiment, Col. Davidson, Capt. Boll's Company. Discharged in March 1779.
  Joseph's daughter Martha 'Patsy' Hammon's husband John Collins was probably
 the brother of son William Hammon's wife, Eve Collins. Both couples were married in Surry Co, NC.

  Hello Judy,
  I got your name from GenForum and wanted to write you about the Hammons and Bryant families. I descend from Abraham Hawks and Beulah Bryant who were married 4/3/1834 in Surry Co., NC. Beulah is supposed to have been a daughter of a John Bryant. Even though they married in Surry Co., they lived accross the State line in Grayson Co., VA until the time of the Civil War when part of the family moved to Mercer Co., WV. The only John Bryant for that time period in Grayson Co. appears to have been the son of an earlier John Bryant who died in 1800 leaving a will mentioning all of his children including John and a daughter Beulah (not mine but the similar name leads me to believe I'm on the right track). From the census records in Grayson Co. the younger John's wife may have died between 1820 and 1830 and either John died in the 1830's or he and most of the family moved away. All I really have is the number of children in the household and approximate ages, no names except for m!
 y guess of Beulah.
  Anyway, John Bryant and Elizabeth Hammons marriage bond is in Grayson Co., VA dated 3/27/1804, Book 1, page 41. James Hammons is the surety and he gave consent 3/27/1804 stating that his sister is of lawful age. A John Bryant appears on the 1810 Grayson Tax List (no 1810 census for Grayson Co.), and the 1820 and 1830 Grayson Census.
  I would love to get more information on the Hammons side of the family if you don't mind. I would especially like to know how to get a copy of the pension request of Martha Landrum Hammon that you mentioned on GenForum. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
