Queries regarding the HAM surname
My paternal great grandfather's name was John Ham Sullivan COLEMAN. His
father, John COLEMAN was born ca. 1805 in Ohio (county unknown) and died 1863
in Scott Co., IA. I am not aware of any marital connections to the HAM family.
But my great grandfather may have been named after an associate of his
father's, perhaps a military superior, named John Ham SULLIVAN who was a
resident of Belmont Co., Ohio in the mid to late-1800s. There was also a
Dr. John Hamm of Chillicothe, Ohio who lived in the Belmont Co., Ohio area
for a time. Any information regarding the genealogy of these men and possible
connections between the COLEMAN and HAM families would be much appreciated.
