Notes for Samuel Hammond
Following is taken from a Hammond family website, that has valuable family information, including transcripts of letters:2264

Inscriptions from the gravestone in the Hammond Family Graveyard in Heath Springs SC near the Lancaster and Kershaw County line. Hurricane Hugo damaged many of the gravestones in the cemetery as the storm plowed across South Carolina. Luckily, family historians documented the inscriptions of these valuable historical records many years before. Also buried in this cemetery are Captain Sam's sons Samuel Jr and Rawleigh.
