Contacts Researching the HAM Surname
I descend from Samuel Harrison Ham (abt 1770 to 1841) and have information on his descendents and his brothers descendents. I also research all related families.
Researching his father who I currently believe was Joseph Ham who died in Monroe County, now West Virginia, will recorded in 1799.

My father, William Taylor Ham Jr., mother Lucy Goode and father Joseph Hutchinson Ham, grew up in Norfolk Va.
His maternal grandmother was Anna Gamble Ham. He had a (great?) grandfather William Ham who ran a cutter for the early coast guard in the Revolutionary War, and documents to his name signed by Washington and Jefferson were donated to the Virginia Historical Society(?). I have copies. His mother was a DAR and her records are there.
He was a world renowned scientist and I am amazed that he is not mentioned.
