      Mr. Hammond was one of the company commanded by Hawkins Boone, which went from Boone's Fort, on Muddy Run, July 29, 1778, to the relief of Fort Freeland, on Warrior Run, Northumberland county, when it had been attacked by the British and Indians; and he was one of the few of that heroic band who escaped death. For several years previous to his death he was afflicted with paralysis, which was eventually the cause of his death, February 20, 1831. His remains are buried beside those of his wife, in the cemetery at the Stone church.
