HAMMOND & w/ Ann M. for Farm in New Market District, 97 acres, where Burgess HAMMOND then resided in Aug 1874. Guardian was Clay C. BUHRMAN. Testimony was heard 10 Apr 1877 from: - John C. HARDT, age 49, lumber dealer, Frederick city - Dawson V. HAMMOND, age 56, farmer, Liberty District; land involved was: ..... 300 acres in Liberty District, then occupied by Lyde GRIFFITH & wife; ........ 60 acres in Mount Pleasant District, then in occupancy of Upton J. HAMMOND; ..... 120 acres in New Market District, then in occupancy of Burgess HAMMOND; ..... 110 acres in Carroll and Howard Counties, near Watersville on the line of the Baltimore & Ohio Rail Road, then in occupancy of Basil WOOD & w/ Charlotte ..... 100 acres in Carroll County, then in occupancy of William P. HAMMOND ..... 280 acres in Carroll and Frederick Counties, then in occupancy of Gustaves OWINGS and Belle HAMMOND ..... 100 acres of woodland in Howard County, unoccupied Many of the notes to Col. HAMMOND were from sales of lots to soldiers in Garrett County, the purchasers abandoning the lots, nearly all being insolvent. Dawson then resold the lots. Remaining to be sold are 100 acres in Garrett County and 70 acres in Allegany County. - William J. ROSS - Burgess HAMMOND, age 60, farmer, Frederick county; claimed his Uncle Thomas HAMMOND sold him the land where he lives in the fall of 1852 and also bought the two wood lots from Elias DELASHMUTT for him. Burgess agreed to buy his brother Richard's stock and to move there, take possession and care for Burgess' step mother (there was no dower involved with said land). Land named "Locust Farm". Burgess stated he had met with his uncle when he was very ill that June and his uncle asked him to get into his handtrunk under his bed and get the deed forms he had there; he wanted to write a deed for Burgess, Upton J., William P. HAMMOND and Charlotte C. WOOD. Since Burgess didn't have his spectacles with him, he asked Doctor HOBBS if he would write the deeds. Upton J. stated he didn't want a deed. His uncle wanted someone to get Doctor SAPPINGTON who was a justice of the peace. The next morning Doctor Sidney SAPPINGTON, a justice of the peace, was present, but Dawson claimed if would be better for Burgess not to have a deed, that he was in the Will. Rueben FALCONER was the carpenter who built the house on the property where Burgess lived, but he has since died. - Charlotte C. WOOD; agreed that Uncle Tom had told them he had given the land to Burgess. - Basil WOOD (age 59 on 12 Nov 1862); agreed that Uncle had told them he had given the land to Burgess. Land was to be used for growing tobacco. He described the work he did to build the house on the WOODs property and putting up worm fencing, using some of his money and some from Uncle Tom. - William P. HAMMOND; he had rented the farm before Burgess got it and it was in poor condiditon then; since then, Burgess had made vast improvements and added a barn and other new buildings. - Elias L. DELASHMUTT; stated he had sold Burgess the two wood lots near the farm of 20 acres for about $300; Col. HAMMOND paid for them. Claimed Col. HAMMOND had told him the land that Burgess farmed was Burgess'; also stated Burgess' step mother was Mrs. Margaret HAMMOND (would then be Nathan's second wife). - Mrs. Drusilla HAMMOND, w/o Burgess; stated John HAMMOND (now dec'd) had come in to visit in 1852 and wanted Burgess to go back out west with him but Thomas HAMMOND objected and stated that John had a family and he didn't and, if Burgess would stay here, he would give him a farm. The farm here was literally falling down, but uncle Tom told Burgess he would pay expenses if he would fix it up and it would be his and never taken away from him. At that time, nothing would grow because the land was so poor, there was no barn and the stable fell down and snow fell into the house. Burgess bought Richard out with gold and took in his stepmother. Uncle Tom told Burgess this in the 'ordinary' room (house had but two rooms) and Drusilla' sister, Helen Marr McMACKEN, was there. Some of her money paid for some of the post and rail fencing. - Miss Drusilla HAMMOND, d/o Burgess - John W. DUVALL; validated he heard Col. HAMMOND state the farm was Burgess', some twenty years ago. Farm is next to Daniel SWAMELY's place. - Ephraim RICHMOND; had known Col. HAMMOND since 1828. Col. HAMMOND told him about the farm he bought for Lottie and that was what he gave to her and nothing more. He said he didn't give any of them deeds, but was in his Will. Stated in 1852 he occupied part of said land where he now resides. In 1832, Col. HAMMOND deeded him 44 acres of "Hammond's Good Luck", out of the 297 acres; tract was previously "Black Castle". Col. HAMMOND bought an 80-acre tract from his wife in 1834 and sold it in 1870 to Jacob HOUCK. In 1852, Col. HAMMOND had 17 grown SLAVES and unknown number of little ones. - John B. GARTRELL; spoke of the farm in Carroll County, some 12 years before, where Charlotte WOOD was then living; she stated the farm was for sale. Agreement was made for the purchase at $1,300 cash, contract made with Basil WOOD; went to Rueben WARFIELD to have deed drawn in favor of William FLEMING who was to pay the money. However, when they met at Col. HAMMOND's to complete the transaction, Mr. ALEXANDER was also there who was to sell to the WOODS his farm and Col. HAMMOND was to sign over the deed for the sale, but when asked to also sign a note on the new farm, Col. HAMMOND refused, stating he had already given Charlotte her share and she could do as she liked for that or sell or trade it, but he wasn't giving her more. Sale for Charlotte's property failed because they would not give possession of it. (Gartrell's wife was a Miss GOSNELL) - Hiram WOODWARD; he went to Baltimore to get materials for improvements for Charlotte's property, was paid for by Col. HAMMOND, except a small balance still due. - Andrew ALEXANDER; stated he withdrew the sale because Col. HAMMOND would not endorse the notes for his property. - Elias M. WOOD; had been living on the WOOD farm about 15 years. - Mrs. Charlotte C. WOOD; then living in Carroll County on Bertha GOSSELL's property, but is same property mentioned in petition. Charlotte took possession in Nov 1862 after her Uncle Tom paid cash for it for them. After Charlotte's oldest son died, she didn't want to live there anymore so went to her uncle who told her she could do with the place as she liked. She could sell it for $1,300 but wanted to buy ALEXANDER's place for $6,000-$7,000 and Uncle Tom refused to put more money out for another property. He had never seen their place but agreed to have a house built for them on the property already paid for that they had been living on. She claimed on June 2nd Uncle Tom had called all of them, who were given parts of his land, to come to his bedside and said he wanted to give them all deeds as he didn't want Dawson to sell them for a quarter of a dollar. Dawson got there the next day when the magistrates were there to validate the deeds and stopped it, then went to talk to his uncle for over an hour. Then he came out and said we didn't need any deeds that it was all in the Will and deeds would only cause litigation of the Will. The next night Dawson claimed Uncle Tom was failing fast and was too incompetent to sign any deeds or contracts. - Thomas CARR; stated Dr. Tom SIMS told him they were writing deeds and he was the one who suggested to Dawson that they be stopped. - Joshua WOOD (brother of Basil WOOD); 18-20 years ago he kept a store at Ridgeville and had rented the McELFRESH farm to the WOODs. The WOODs later moved onto the Aaron GOSNELL farm. - Dawson V. HAMMOND, only living brother of the decedent. - Dr. Greenbury R. SAPPINGTON, age 56, Unionville, physician; he had a conversation with Col. Thomas HAMMOND in Feb 1868 and had remarked it was a shame to put such a large family (WOODs) on such a poor place. Col. HAMMOND replied that Mrs. WOOD had bought the farm and he had never seen it; that he had told her to look for a samll farm not to exceed $1600-$1800 and he would buy it for her; she was satisfied with it and, if she sold it, would not own another one, so they had better keep it. A year or so later Carroll HAMMOND's farm was for sale and Greenbury suggested that would be a better farm for them and they could sell the other one. Col. HAMMOND responded he couldn't afford the give the price for the Carroll HAMMOND farm and make them a present of it. - Alpheus W. MARRIOTT; knew Col. HAMMOND since 1832. - Hugh McALEER On 11 Sep 1876, petition of creditors was filed against Col. Thomas HAMMOND by Ephraim RICHMOND, as admin/of Polly ANGEL ($3,500), and as an individual ($700); Upton H. RICHMOND ($162); and Thomas C. HAMMOND ($1290). On 11 Sep 1874, petition of creditors was filed against Col. Thomas HAMMOND by Mollie H. GRIFFITH ($1200) & H. C. HAMMOND ($275), which he assigned to Ellen BURNS, now dec'd (her extr/ Emma HAMMOND). Further testimony on 24 Jun 1878 from: - Godfrey KOONTZ, age 75, Register of Frederick City and Justice of the Peace; verified handwriting of Col. HAMMOND. - George NULL, age 58, carpenter, Liberty - John H. WILLIAMS, age 64, Pres/of Frederick County National Bank, Frederick City - Milton G. URNER The court ruled the lands devised in the Will to Burgess HAMMOND and to Charlotte C. WOOD would remain theirs; the other lands to be sold except for the home farm which would remain until after the other lands were sold and an accounting to the court was made. Trustee was Dawson V.
