Children of John Hammons (1770/2 – 1828) and His Whitlock Wife

Mobile County, Alabama, White Marriage Bk. 4, p. 63, available digitally at FamilySearch

In what follows, I’ll tell you what I know of the children of John Hammons and his wife who was a daughter of Thomas Whitlock and whose given name I have not discovered. I do not have proof positive that all of these children were born to John’s Whitlock wife, but since documents listing them as his children never indicate that any of these children were half-siblings to each other, I think it’s safe to assume that all are children of John’s Whitlock wife. Note that, according to Betsy Shrader in her 1831 affidavit cited below, John Hammons had two children in addition to the six listed below, who died prior to 1828 and of whose names I have not seen a record.
