Who was the father of James Ham (Hamm), ca 1756-1819 (Spartanburg, SC), m. Avarilla (various spellings)??

Traditionally, he was the son of William Hamm (1716-1791).  But on 18 Sept 1788, a land contract between James Ham, "the lawful heir of Jeremiah Ham deceased of Spartanburg County South Carolina" sold to William Ham (James's brother?) 200 acres in Newberry County for 10 Pounds sterling.  The contract was signed by James Ham, his seal, and "Avarilla Ham, her mark." 

James Ham administered the estate of Jeremiah Ham, Abbeville District, SC on 9 Apr 1875. 

James's father was William? or Jeremiah?

death, Asa married twice more.

Too my knowledge all of this is accurate based on my research. However, I am not able to trace solid

information of Samuel Hamm's wife. Nor can I find data representing William Hamm of Hamm Germany

and his father / mother. I am not sure whether William of 1716 father was of English or German descent.
