In April I found out that my grandfather (James Jacob) had 2 sisters-Margaret and Mary and 3 brothers- Arthur (John), Michael and Joseph Hamman all born in Remsen, Iowa to Henry Hamman and Suzie Bentz Hamman. Their mother Suza died in 1908 when the oldest Mary was 10 and the youngest Michael was barely a year old.
I can find most of the siblings except for Margaret in an orphanage in Dubuque, Iowa in 1910.
In 1915 I find Aunt Maggie living in Meadow, Plymouth, Iowa.
I believe Frank Shove and Margaret Hammond were married about 1920.
In 1930 I find Margaret and Frank Shove in Cherokee, Iowa with daughters Betty June and Delores.
In 1934, when my grandparents, James Jacob Hammond and Edna Mae Cornell were married in Spencer, NY, I know that Mrs. Frank Shove of Cherokee, Iowa attended and signed the Guest Book.
In 1966 Margaret passed away in San Diego, CA. She was buried in Mt. Hope, San Diego and was 65 years old.
