The contributor, Ann H. Raymont * copied this material from the Bible of her great-great grandfather who came to DeKalb County, IN shortly before 1850. With the exception of a few years spent in Defiance County, OH, he lived the rest of his life in DeKalb and Steuben Counties, IN. This Bible belonged to his son, James Alexander Speers Hammond, and later to his son, John Tempest Tucker Hammond.

No publication date is shown, but the contributor states that the page entitled
"Family record of my Father's family"
was undoubtedly written after 1888. She has added the information in brackets.
