Queries regarding the HAM
County: Spartanburg County, SC
TimeFrame: About 1716
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?

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

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