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 husband descends from John and Letty HAM, who were from South Carolina. Letty was the daughter of Cornelius CARGILL (she had CUNNINGHAM relatives). John was the son of Capt. Richard HAM and wife Elizabeth of Charleston and then the Orangeburg District of SC.

Children included sons Odolphus HAM and Miranda (Randy) HAM.

My husband descends from this Randy HAM, who married Jane BOYER.

From what I've collected, some of the Ham's moved from Kentucky (Fleming County) and settled in St. Joseph, Missouri, and Atchison, Kansas.  (That's where my father was born.) 
My great grandfather was William Perry Ham (Fleming County). I think his father was James Pleasant Ham (Fleming
County). William Perry Ham and Rosa Frommer had 7 children (Lloyd Perry, James Harrison, Mabel Rose, Myrtle, Walter William, Herbert Guy, and Luther). James Harrison Ham had 3 children (Harriet Virginia, Kathryn Jane, and James Harrison Ham, Jr., my father).

I have a list of people buried in the Hamtown Cemetery, outside of Poplar Bluff, MO.  

My grandmother was Leona Pearl HAM, Daughter of Stephen HAM and Cynthia READING.

Two of the members of this family:

(1880 Butler County, Missouri census indicates that the father of William C. HAM and Stephen P. HAM was born in Kentucky.)

Would enjoy sharing whatever I have and look forward to gaining new info.
