I currently live in SC but belong to the Minnesota Hammes.Born in 1923.The fourth child of Henry and Jessie(nee Schultz)Hammes.The other children were Gordon (Deceased),Mary--now Mary Maranda living in Shoreview,MN,and Frank (deceased).I have four children.Larry,who lives in Maine.Anne Lynn (Kelley) who lives in Ohio.Patrick who lives in Texas and Julie who resides with us.Jacob was my Grandfather,and Uncles were Matt,Joe, and Willie.My father is buried in Eden Valley,MN in the same cemetary as Jacob and his two wives and sister Kate.
I have been to the village in Germany that Jacob was from.There are several Hammes graves in the local cemetary.Unfortunately,I was extremely limited for time and it was raining very hard while I was there.One always plans to go back but now I have my doubts that I will ever make it.
Best regards to all Hammes's.I would appreciate hearing from any kin folk.
Norm Hammes
