For the past several days I’ve been working on the narrative report for my ancestor, Richmond Fisk Hammond. What should have been a relatively simple clean-up of sentences and sources has become more complicated.
Two blocks of text are proving particularly difficult. One of the blocks is about Richmond’s filing of land papers in Ford County, Kansas while the other block concerns his military record.
After reviewing the paragraph about the land holdings, I have concluded that I don’t have adequate documentation to support what I have recorded as a fact. I have reference to a deed but I do not have the actual copy of the deed. The footnote not only references the purchase of the land but also the filing of homestead papers. Thus, I at least need a copy of the deed and probably the actual homestead land file. So today’s mail contains requests for both.
The text about his military service is a different story. I have a copy of his pension file and his military service file and it is confusing. Below is a screenshot of what I currently have in RootsMagic regarding his service:
Since that is a lot of different units, I probably have a mistake in there someplace. Without re-checking his file, the only fact I’m certain of is that he was a prisoner of war at Andersonville.
The above information is consistent with an affidavit dated 29 May 1912. Unfortunately, what I have from his military file doesn’t confirm the 1st Illinois Calvary service and includes documents for service in Company H Regiment 102 of the Illinois Infantry.
An 1896 pension document confirms the August 1861 discharge date.
Roll May 25th to Aug 31 / 61 “Discharged at Ir[ino]ton Aug 20, 1861” It has this day (Aug 11, 1896) been determined by this Department from the records and evidence furnished by the auditor for the War Department that this man was discharged the service Aug. 20, 1861, for disability nature not stated. There is no certificate of disability in his case file
I also have military records indicating that Richmond Hammond was on the muster roll for Company D of the 14 Regiment of the Illinois Calvary. Richmond Hammond was shown as ‘present’ during 1863 and January/February of 1864. However, he is recorded as ‘missing in action on August 3, 1864. Richmond Hammond is mustered out on May 30, 1865.
The additional pages of a military record are for a Richmond F Hammond who was a private in Company H 102 Regiment Illinois Infantry. According to these papers
Richmond F Hammond enlisted as a private in Capt. Shinn’s Co., 102 Reg’t Ill. Inf age 22 years Appears on Company Muster-in Roll of the organization named above. Roll Dated Knoxville, Ill, Sept 2 1826
Richmond F Hammond Pvt, Co H 102 Reg’t Illinois Infantry Appears on Company Muster Roll for Nov 1, 62 to Fe 28 1836 Remarks: Deserted at Knoxville, Ill. Sept 17, 1862
Richmond F Hammond Pvt, Co H, 102 Reg’t Illinois Infantry Appears on Co. Muster-out Roll, dated Nr. Washington D.C., June 6, 1865 Last paid to One mos ad. pay Remarks: Deserted Sept. 17, 1862, Knoxville, Ill. Last heard from in 14″ Ill Vol Cavalry
Adding this stint of service (non-service), his timeline is as follows:

Thus, it looks like I need to locate documentation for Richmond’s service in the 1st Illinois Cavalry. Based on the fact that I don’t have military records to document this service, I’m guessing that I did not receive a copy of his entire military file. Before trying to re-order his military and pension files, I’m going to try and locate documentation for this missing service record using other sources. Wish me luck!
Do you track your DNA statistics? At times, I’ve tried keeping track of these statistics but got frustrated when the way the information was reported would change. Thus, it became difficult to compare current data with previous data.
When it comes to ‘common ancestors,’ I couldn’t find the number reported by Ancestry. Since I don’t want to have to try and count them, I’m going to guesstimate. I recently posted my ThruLines Summary thru my 4th great grandparents. For my ‘guesstimate,’ I’m going to use 1/2 of the total number of ThruLines thru my 4th great grandparents. This isn’t an accurate calculation.

With over 100,000 matches for one DNA test, there is NO WAY I’m going to be able to document all of those matchers. However, I’m using the ThruLines matches to help support my paper research. Thus, all of those matches are important to me.

Have you heard of My Heritage’s Colorize Photos tool? Announced earlier this year, this tool takes a black and white photo and creates a color photo from it.
I’d heard of the tool but had never used it until today. When I got a request for some family pictures from a cousin, my husband suggested that I use this tool on the pictures. Thus, I tried it out – and am hooked.
In 1806, Rachel Currey married Samuel Colver in Champaign County Ohio. Rachel and Samuel had five children: Abigail, Sarah, Samuel, Rachel and Hiram. Sarah married Lyman Konkrite in 1827. By 1860 the Konkrites had migrated to Texas where Sarah died in 1874. Rachel married Robert Wilson in 1833 and moved to Illinois. Samuel married Huldah Callender in Logan County Ohio in 1843. Prior to his marriage, Samuel was in Texas where he served as a Texas Ranger under Colonel Edward Burleson. Hiram married Mariah Ward in 1841 in Madison County, Ohio.
In 1849, Samuel and Hiram had moved with their families to St. Joseph, Missouri where they were preparing to move to Oregon. In a letter dated in November (year not specified), Hiram writes his parents about their stay in St. Joseph and the desire to move west. Samuel added a note at the end of this letter. According to their respective land claims, Samuel and Hiram arrived in Oregon in 1850. The two families settled in Jackson County Oregon. In July 1851 Hiram again writes his parents describing the land and explaining why he doesn’t believe his mother would be happy in Oregon.
In 1853, Samuel and Rachel write to their sons in Oregon. The letter urges one of the sons to come back east and help them move to Oregon.
In 1857 Martha Scranton writes to her sister in Oregon.

In the matter of Richmond F Hammond, late member of Co D 14″ Reg’t Ill Cav Vols
On this 8 day of March A.D. 1898 personally appeared before me RIchmond F Hammond aged 57 years, a resident of Dodge City in the county of Ford and State of Kansas well known to me to be reputable and entitled to credit, and who, being duly sworn, declares in relation to aforesaid case as follows:
My Chronick diarehea was contracted while I was a Prisoner of War at Andersonville, Geo in summer and fall of 1864 and continued on me while I was at Charleston South Carolina and at Florence South Carolina wheas I came near loosing my life with it and it has continued on me ever sense and I farther state that the Doctor that attended me when I got home from Rebel prisons is dead so is the next one and that is the reason why I cannot get the evidence of them.
I did not serve in the Naval or military service of the United States prior to May 23, 1861 nor subsequent to June 16 1865
Affiant’s post office address is Dodge City Ford Co Kansas
Mrs. E.O. Briles St. Joseph Hospital Linwood & Prospect Kans City MO
Dear Pauline: rec’d your card and so glad to know you are getting along allright “Mary Ida” is all right now has 2 teeth now so that she can bite good and hard Fannie made $26 at the pie supper. No we didn’t go Frank saw Walter Monday went down to your folks after [c?] He was just fine Wishing you Merry Xmas. Love Myra
I received the above post card with some of my grandmother’s things. I don’t remember ever discussing this with her – and wished I had. Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer to my question, ‘Why was she in the hospital in Kansas City when they lived in Woodson county?’ All I have is speculation.
When I first realized that grandma was hospitalized in 1919, I wondered if she was suffering depression after the death of her almost 9 month old son, Kenneth, in June of that year.
However, my perspective has widened to wonder if grandma was in the hospital with influenza. According to the ‘Influenza Encyclopedia’ entry for Kansas City, it appears that the majority of influenza cases were during the winter of 1918 to spring of 1919 and not during December 1919.
In trying to figure out the ‘why’ behind my grandmother’s stay in the hospital, I looked for more information on St. Joseph Hospital. The building where she was a patient has been replaced by the Linwood Shopping Center. Thankfully, the web site KC Rag contains a timeline for the property at Linwood and Prospect on their forum, “All about the Linwood Shopping Center.”
Reading the history of the St. Joseph Hospital just reinforces the idea that my grandmother was seriously ill at the time. I just wish I had been able to ask her about her experience at St. Josephs.

It’s approaching that time of year when on reflects on the past year and looks forward to the next. Like most people, I’m ready for this pandemic to be over. However, I do like to look back on my genealogy to see how much progress I’ve made. In order to do that, I have to collect data for future comparison.
Thus, I’m going to collect data on my Ancestry DNA Thrulines. I am MC, my siblings are DC and TC and my parent is RC.
