The Phillip Hamman Family Association was founded in 1972 to pay tribute to our ancestor and an American patriot. Since that time we have identified over 6000 descendants of Phillip and Christina Cook Hamman.
The Hamman family began in America when Phillip Hamman arrived in Philidelphia from Germany on Oct. 16, 1772. He fought in the Colonial Wars in Virginia. In 1774, fought with the 12th Virginia Regiment in the Battle of Point Pleasant which was the first battle of the American Revolution. Phillip was discharged in 1779 and wed Christina Cook, daughter of Valentine Cook, Sr. on March 3, 1780 at Cook's Fort in what is now Monroe County, West Virginia. Together they had 13 children. Phillip and Christina are buried at Valley Head, Alabama.
Our work is far from over. It is estimated that several thousand more individuals are still to be identified and new facts about our ancestors surface reguarly.
Family reunions held every two years gives everyone a chance to put faces to the people we exchange so much information with. The next will be held in Salt Lake City in 2000.
The family name is also a topic of interest with many people. The Association includes family names of Hamman, Hammond, Hammons, etc. due to regional variations over the past two hundred years.
