I checked out your website in hopes that this might link to a missing Hamman of ours. But it looks like your Hammann was born in Germany ca. 1840. In C.P. Hammans "tall-tale" history of his/our family, he mentions that one of the eight brothers was a George and that "George emigrated to New York state, some where near the Erie canal, east of Buffalo, and was lost to the rest of the family." Our George was probably born in PA before 1800 or in OH soon after 1800; according to C.P., 14 children were born in MD or PA and the last 3 in OH (my ancestor Jacob Hamman was born ca. 1784 in PA). If you want to check out more about this family see Gene Andert's Hamman research page at
