William Linzey Ham,Jr, born November 20, 1947 in Guilford County,NC, Married Karen LeDean Cox born February 02, 1957 in Fayetteville,NC


It is my belief that my Grandfather , James Arville Ham, Sr. dropped the second m from the Hamm name having been orphaned.  I am not sure.  I do have a copy of Rebecca Pratt Hamm's hand written application for Mordecai's Revolutionary War Veteran's Pension  where she signed the letter Hamm.


Some of my male ancestors had more than one wife and other male Hamm children.  In future articles I will post documented information regarding some of the descendants.


Yours truly,


William Linzey Ham,Jr.
