    DEATH OF DR. HAMMOND - Dr. Moses Hammond, an old settler and highly respected resident of San Joaquin County, died suddenly yesterday afternoon at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. George E. Gray, in this city. He was in his seventy-ninth year, and for a man of his age, was quite lively, although not by any means vigorous. On Wednesday he walked about town but complained of suffering from an attack of asthma, from which he soon obtained relief. The attack returned yesterday forenoon, and in the afternoon he expired. Deceased settled at San Joaquin City in 1850, and after remaining there about a year, he became satisfied that the leading city of the plains would not be at his locality, and removed his dwelling to Stockton, floating the building down the river on a raft. He was a gentleman of unexceptional character and much intelligence. He leaves a son and daughter in this city - Mrs. Gray, wife of ex-mayor Gray, and Mr. John Hammond, of the firm of Hammond, Moore & Yardley, merchants, Weber Avenue. The time the funeral will take place is not yet announced. One by one the pioneers identified with the history and growth of Stockton are passing away.

    The battle is fought, the victory won.

    The reaper has garnered the golden sheaf
    To a happy home where pain shall cease;
    The gates of Heaven opened wide
    And let thee seek dear father's side.

    'Tis sad to touch the parting strain;
    But joy to know we shall meet again;
    In Heaven mother will watch and wait
    To greet us at the pearly gate.

  73. Stockton Record Newspaper, 7 Jan 1924. DEATH SUMMONS BELOVED WOMAN; Mrs. John Hammond, Pioneer Resident of City, Died Yesterday;
    Mrs. Emma Ray Hammond, widow of the late John Hammond, pioneer merchant of Stockton and mother of a family prominent in the business professional and social life of the city, passed away at the old home, 643 North Hunter Street, yesterday. She died in the residence where she had lived for forty-two years and reared her large family. Mrs. Hammond had been in failing health since she suffered a paralytic stroke two years ago. She was over 73 years of age at the time of her death.
    The beloved woman, who had been a resident of Stockton since the sixties, was one of the three earliest surviving members of the First Presbyterian church, having joined in 1867. The other two still living are Mrs. Caroline Smythe, who lives eight miles out on the Copperopolis road, and Mrs. Martin Stewart. Mrs. George S. Ladd, who died before the holidays was among the last four.
    Mrs. Hammond, who was Miss Emma Ray before her marriage, was born in Pennsylvania September 13, 1850. When a girl of 16 years, she came with her parents and brothers and sisters to California by was of the Isthmus of Panama. On the same steamer which brought the Ray family to this state was L. U. Shippee who afterward became a leading figure in the business and financial life of Stockton. Mrs. Ray's brother, William McKee, had already come to California and was engaged in the grocery business in this city. His presence here was the incentive which brought the Rays to this community. Afterward, Mr. McKee and Mr. Shippee were associated together in the well-known pioneer firm of Shippee & McKee.
    Mrs. Ray, Mrs. Hammond's mother, made her home with the Hammonds during her last years and only preceded her daughter in death by two years, living to the age of 92 years.
    Mrs. Hammond as a young girl in Stockton, attended the Stockton High School, being a member of the pioneer class which included Lottie Grunsky, C. E. Grunsky and Alice Mills, but did not finish her course. S. G. Dunbar was the principal.
    In the late sixties, Miss Ray married John Hammond, a pioneer grocer of the community. The union was blessed by six children, all of whom survive. They are John Hammond, Jr., Oakland, Mrs. W.

  242. Hammond Genealogy. Moses Hammond came to California in 1849 by way of the Isthmus of Panama.
  243. DAR - Records of the Families of California Pioneers, Vol 24, pp 108-109. Moses Hammond came from Newport, RI in 1849 via the Isthmus of Panama. On the way across he was called Dr. Hammond because of the success he had in checking cholera that had broken out on board the ship. When he landed in San Francisco he found that two of the tree ships that his brother John had brought around the Horn had already arrived, the General Cobb and the schooner Alexander manned by William Dennis. The third ship was never heard from.
    The ship carrying his house in sections and his household furniture was brought up to San Joaquin City and the house was set up. Cholera again broke out and he was placed in charge. Thenceforth he was always known as Dr. Hammond. After about a year he decided to move to Stockton, so the house was placed on a scow and brought down to Stockton and set up on West Market street where it was standing as late as 2 Dec 1926.
    He brought in lumber and sold it at a good profit, but when hard times came, he gave up the lumber business and bought a farm near Stockton. His son Alden was with him, and in 1855 he returned to Newport and brought out his wife and two other children, Cynthia and John, reaching Stockton in July of that year.

When he was 11 years old he came to California with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Hammond. The Hammonds made the journey from Newport in their own ship and settled near San Joaquin city, this county.

PIONEER GROCERY TO CLOSE DOORS; Hammond & Yardley to Quit Stockton Because Lease is Unsatisfactory; Because a satisfactory lease can not be secured on the property the pioneer grocery store established 57 years ago by the late John Hammond and known for many years by the firm name of Hammond, Moore & Yardley, is to close up its business career. The present owners of the business, C. P. Hynes and D. G. McAdams are leaving Stockton...
    Fifty-seven years ago the greater part of the grocery business of Stockton was done by Shippee & McKee. John Hammond was one of the firm's enterprising clerks. Severing his connection with the firm he in partnership with George Natts, opened the store on Weber avenue which has prospered until the present hour. In fact the last year has been one of the banner years of the pioneer store's career. In the days of the infancy of the store miners came to Stockton and bought supplies to last them several months.
    Natts sold his interest in the store to T. P. Moore and not long afterward John Yardley was taken into the firm. At that time the store had only a 25-foot frontage and needing more space for the growing firm they found a friend in Simpson & Gray who built the store, 225 East Weber avenue. The firm remained at this site until the business doubled and then moved to its present site.
    Upon the death of Mr. Moore a number of years ago the firm took the name of Hammond & Yardley. About 10 years ago Mr. Yardley sold his interests to Mr. Hammond and Mr. Hammond remained the head of the firm until his death three years later. The store retained its name and for about five years was conducted by Mr. Hammond's son, Howard Hammond, through Dan O'Leary. Mr. O'Leary ceased his connection with the firm about two and a half years ago when Hynes & McAdams purchased the business. The Ruhl-Goodell company purchased the property and are the present owners.

She is about 65 tons burthen, and is intended to run between this Town and Providence; she will be propelled by the new and improved Steam Engine, invented by Mr. John Babcock, of Portsmouth, (on this Island) of which we gave a very particular description in the Mercury of the 29th January last. -- Her accommodations are said to be very commodious, and much more extensive than boats usually are of her size. --We learn that she will commence running in the course of 3 or 4 weeks.

We witnessed on Saturday (23rd ultimo) the launch of a beautiful steam-boat, intended to run between this place and Providence, belonging to S T Northam, Esq. and built, in a very superiour manner by Mr. Benjamin Marble, Jun. The beauty of her model, we understand, has seldom been surpassed. The internal accommodations are very neat, and the space occupied by the cabin is much larger than is usual for vessels of her size, and is in consequence of her carrying instead of the old-fashioned engine with a 20 foot boiler, the more compact and powerful one of Babcock (the one we sometime since described to our readers) and we have little doubt of her being propelled by it with unusual celerity and perfect safety.

    "Mr. Clark, the owner and proprietor of the Roberts & Clark planing mill, was in Los Angeles engaging men, employing nonunion men to come to Stockton. Those men were not informed as to the conditions, and were deliberately misled. Some of them went to work, others have ceased to work and refused to go to work. Tow of them never went to work at all, and gave us their affidavit, and the matter is now pending before the labor commissioner. Two nonunion hod carriers came to work with shotguns. They were arrested, charged with carrying concealed weapons, plead guilty, and the attorney for the M, M and E paid their fines.

The later history of the Pigwacket Indians is lost; but a tract of land in Rochester mostly unoccupied and given up to woods and huckleberry pastues - a tract lying northwest of the Witch Rock Corner, and five or six miles distant from Mattapoisett Neck - is known to some of the older citizens by the mysterious name of Pigwacket.

  912. Annals of Southwestern Pennsylvania, p. 19. JACOB'S CABINS - Captain Jacobs and King Shingass were Delaware chiefs at Kittanning, who led various bands eastward in the devastation of pioneer homes in the Cumberland and Susquehanna valleys. This Captain Jacobs was killed when Colonel John Armstrong marched his 300 Cumberland County soldiers westward in 1756 and destroyed the Indian town of Kittanning. Colonel Armstrong says that a son of Captain Jacobs was killed at Kittanning, and if that be son, there were two Captain Jacobs, one of them living at Jacob's Cabin near Iron Bridge at the Great Swamp on Jacob's Creek. The settlers called him Captain Jacobs because he resembled a burly Dutchman of that name in Cumberland County. Orme's "Journal of the Braddock Expedition in 1755" says: "We marched to Jacobs' Cabin about six miles from the camp." Gist's diary says that he and Washington set out from his plantation and went across the Youghiogheny about twenty miles to Jacobs' Cabins. Peter Tittle, of Cumberland County, made affidavit on March 4, 1760, at the age of 35 years, that an Indian Doctor John spoke contemptuously concerning the soldiers, saying they were good for nothing, and that they had killed Captain Jacobs, but that he had known another Captain Jacobs, a very big man, bigger and stronger than he who was killed.

The following is an alphabetical list of the settlers or owners of the Military lots surveyed for the state by Francis Deakins in 1788: Ashby...Jesse Tomlinson, John Trimble, John Tomlinson, Jacob Tustlinger, Moses Tinlonel, Richard Telton, Ezekiel Totten, Petter Tetter Sr, David Troxell and John Trotter...
  915. Cumberland Road Project, p. 4. The Commissioner's Report makes no mention of Tittles, seen on the 1795 map above, or Clark's Store, mentioned by William Brown in his 1790 itinerary, but it's along the way so I feel it warrants a mention. The precise location of Tittle's and/or Clark's is somewhat problematic as the town of Clarysville, Eckhart Mines and the current ciy of Frostburg are all in the same area.
    p. 5
    Three major events have shaped the development of the town; the first of these was the coming of the National Pike. This road was the principal route along which the westward migration took place during the first half of the nineteenth century. It was also the route along which the agricultural products and raw materials of the west moved to eastern markets. After the Nation Pike was surveyed, in about 1811, Josiah Frost laid off building lots just west of the huse which had been built a few years before by George & Mary Calrk McCulloh, and called Mt. Pleasant...Since there was already one Mount Pleasant in MD, the name of the town was changed to "Frostburg" by the government when a post office was established there in 1820.

    Developer/Owner: Clark, Robert. From Deakins' Survey 1788; List of families who settled on lots included in the survey before the lands were set aside as military lots:

    The Maryland General Assembly in 1777, enacted a bounty of fifty acres to recruits who served 3 years in the American army - and 100 acres to each recruiting officer who enlisted twenty men. In 1781 the lands were set aside west of Fort Cumberland, and in 1787 Francis Deakins was appointed to survey the land in lots. An act of 1788 settlers were allowed to purchase their lots at prices varying from 5 to 20 shillings per acre, in three equal payment of one, two and three years. Later Maryland officers and soldiers were secured in the lots to which they were entitled for military services.

    The following is from the Maryland Journal of Friday, July 3, 1789
    "Notice is hereby given to the officers and soldiers of the Maryland Line, that a distribution of land will be made to them at Upper Marlborough, in Prince George's County, on the 1st and 2d of August next, agreeably to an act of Assembly, and at the same time and place will be offered at public sale about one thousand lots of land, of fifty acres each, for ready money, or specie certificates of the State of Maryland. This land lies to the westward of Fort Cumberland. For a particular description thereof, apply to Capt. Daniel Cresap or Mr. John Tomlinson, who lives near the same. David Linn, Daniel Cresap, Benjamin Brookes, Commissioners."

    The Petition of James Tittle Respectfully
    Represents. That your petitioner on the 21st day of
    June in the Year of Our Lord one thousand seven hundred
    and ninety eight was contracted in Matrimony and lawfully
    married to Anne his present wife and from that time
    until the month of March Eighteen hundred and thirty
    one lived and cohabited with her as her husband, and as
    such was owned and acknowledged by her, and deemed
    and respected by all his neighbors and acquaintances, and
    although by the laws of God as well as by their mutual faith
    plighted to each other they were reciprocally bound to that
    kindness and uniform regard which ought to be inseparable
    from the marriage state. Yet so it is, that from the said
    month of March 1821, up to the present time, the said Anne
    hath wilfully and maliciously deserted and absented
    herself from the habitation & company of Your libellant
    without any reasonable cause -

    Wherefore Your Libellant further Showing that
    he is a citizen of this State, and hath resided therein
    for one year and more previous to the filing of this petition
    Prays Your Honorable court that a subpoena may issue
    from the said court directed to the said Anne
    Tittle commanding her to appear at the next term of the
    said court to answer this petition, and also that a decree
    of the said court may be given granting theis libellant a divorce
    from the bonds of matrimony and from the society fellow-
    ship and company of the said Anne, in all time to come,
    and free this libellant from the marriage bond aforesaid
    as if the said Anne & the said James had never been
    married, or as if the said Anne were naturally(sic) dead
    and Your libellant will pray &c -
    James Tittle.

POST OFFICE: Mr. Jonathan Tittle, whose appointment has been sometime in the hands of Mr. Moore, Postmaster at San Francisco, has been qualified, and will, we are informed, enter immediately upon the discharge of his duties. Mr. T. is a relative of Gov. Johnson of Pennsylvania, also of our Judge Hastings, and an old schoolmate of John W. Geary, the present Mayor of San Francisco, and these latter two gentlemen are his securities. We trust that better arrangements will be made than have yet been effected for the more frequent and punctual transmission of the mails. The business of the office at Sacramento promises soon to equal if not exceed that of any point in California. Mr. Freeland, who has worked hard to accommodate the public, deserves the thanks of this community, and we hope he may succeed in prosecuting some business of a more lucrative character than that of attending to the affairs of Uncle Samuel.
