Biographical Details:

Evidently, Rebecca Russell was the namesake of her paternal grandmother.  She was the daughter of William and Anna Bonham Russell, born on March 19, 1825, not long after her parents and older sister had moved from Grayson County, Virginia, to Whitley County, Kentucky.  The family subsequently migrated through Indiana to Putnam County, Illinois.  Rebecca Russell and Henry Hamm (or Ham) were married in Putnam County on April 21, 1842, by Mifflin Harker.1  According to the 1850 US Census for Putnam County, the household of Henry Hamm consisted of a young couple, viz., Henry and Rebecca, a son, Edward, and three daughters, Adaline, Sarah E., and Matilda, as well as Rebecca's unmarried sister, Elizabeth Russell.  Indeed, it is known that Elizabeth lived with the Henry and Rebecca Hamm prior to her marriage to Samuel Nixon in 1854.  Apparently, the Hamm family remained in Putnam County until after 1860 because the population schedule of the census of that year indicates that they were then resident in Granville Township (which is located in the northeastern corner of Putnam County adjoining Bureau and La Salle Counties and includes the town of Granville).  Moreover, Edward Hamm, the only known son of Henry and Rebecca Russell Hamm, was a soldier in the Union Army during the Civil War.2  Unfortunately, there is some discrepancy between the names of the children as indicated by 1860 census records and later family tradition.  In particular, the population schedule includes two daughters, Cornelia, age six years, and, Vernilia, age two years.  However, family tradition as well as other documentary evidence identifies these two daughters as Harriet V. and Alice Rebecca.  Obviously, the middle initial, "V", is consistent with the name "Vernilia", however, this also implies that she should have been six years old, which is in obvious disagreement with the census.  Even so, there is evidence from subsequent census records that Vernilia (or "Vernie") was, in fact, the older daughter, in agreement with family tradition.  Therefore, it seems reasonable to conclude that the names of the two daughters have been inverted in the 1860 census population schedule and that Harriet V. should be identified with Vernilia and Alice Rebecca with Cornelia.  (This situation also illustrates a fluidity of children's names commonly encountered in civil records before the advent of mandatory vital records and formal birth certificates.)  In addition, several letters written by Rebecca Hamm to her sister, Charlotte Stephens, have been preserved and provide further details regarding the extended Russell family during the 1850's.3  In passing, it is, perhaps, significant that in these letters Rebecca spelled her given name as "Rebekah" and her surname as "Ham".  Both of these have subsequently become standardized to presently accepted forms.

There is circumstantial evidence that in the late 1860's, the Hamm family moved to McLean County, Illinois, which is located approximately fifty miles south and slightly east of Putnam County.  The motivation for such a move is not known since it appears that they had been reasonably prosperous while living in Putnam County.  Moreover, by 1870 Henry and Rebecca and three of their daughters, Ella, Vernilia, and Flora, were living together as a family in Iroquois County, Illinois, which adjoins the state of Indiana about one hundred miles south of Chicago.  Census records further indicate that at this time both their unmarried daughter, Sarah, and their son, Edward, together with his wife, Lucy, were living in Story County, Iowa.  In addition, Mary Adaline and Matilda had married and, thus, were not living with their parents.  Alice Rebecca Hamm had died at the age of eight in 1866.  Henry Hamm died in Iroquois County in June of 1878, but was buried in McLean County.  This is further implied by the population schedule of the 1880 US Census for Iroquois County, which indicates that Rebecca was a widow living in the village of Onarga with her two unmarried daughters, Sarah E. and Flora.  (Sarah's occupation was indicated as school teacher.)  It is not known how long Rebecca remained in this locality after the death of her husband.  However, in 1900 she was living with her niece, Levina Russell, in Jackson Township in Gentry County, Missouri.4  Subsequently, Rebecca Russell Hamm died on December 26, 1906, and according to family tradition it is believed that she died at the home of her daughter, Flora, in Bolivar, Missouri, but her burial place remains unknown.  (Unfortunately, none of this has been confirmed since existing census records indicate that Flora and her husband, Frank Platt, lived in Peoria, Illinois, in both 1900 and 1910.)  Edward Hamm, his wife Lucy, and their children eventually settled in southern Arkansas sometime before the turn of the century.5  Indeed, of Rebecca's eight children only Ed and Flora survived into the twentieth century.  Moreover, even though the deaths of children and young adults were not uncommon occurrences in the nineteenth century, surely so many in the same family must have been a source of great sorrow for Rebecca Russell Hamm.  Nevertheless, she has been portrayed by younger members of the family as a person of strength and fortitude, well able to cope with the hardships of life.

Source Notes and Citations:
1.  In a brief account of the Russell family written by Leah Johnson, great-granddaughter of William and Anna Bonham Russell (date unknown, but probably sometime in the 1950's), she states:  Rebecca and Henry Hamm were married in Ill.  She died in So. Mo. so I don't know where she came from in Ill.  They had a daughter Ella died when young.  Another daughter Flora & a son Ed Hamm.
     Only three of Henry and Rebecca Hamm's eight children were mentioned in this account.  Indeed, only their son, Edward, and a daughter, Flora, survived into the twentieth century and, thus, could have possibly been known personally by Leah Johnson.  Ella died in Nebraska in 1885, but may have passed through Missouri, which is where Leah was later born and lived.  Therefore, it is plausible that she might have been remembered by older relatives, who passed this on to the writer of the account.  (Leah Johnson, unpublished MSS.)

     The Civil War military service of Edward Hamm was as follows:  He was mustered in as a Private into Company E of the Fourth Illinois Cavalry Regiment on January 5, 1864.  (Company E was organized in Putnam County.)  At the time of his recruitment, his residence was given as Granville Township.  Subsequently, in October of 1864 Company E was consolidated into Company C.  In the roster of the consolidated regiment, Edward Hamm's rank was listed as Corporal.  Upon the close of the war, the entire Fourth Regiment was consolidated into the Twelfth Illinois Cavalry Regiment on June 14, 1865.  Edward Hamm was mustered out of Company K of the Twelfth Illinois Regiment on July 1, 1865, apparently at Memphis, Tennessee.  (Jim Willison (tr), Illinois in the Civil War Project, ILGenWeb Archives,, 2003.)

Original letters from Rebecca Russell Hamm to Charlotte Russell Stephens in possession of Elizabeth Webb (great-granddaughter of Charlotte Russell):

a. "Putnam Co    Hennepin Ill   Jan 31 1850
Dear Brother and Sister [Edward and Charlotte Stephens].
     I improve the Present time to inform you that we are well at this time.  I hope these few lines will find you well.  We are getting along very well.  We have got our house all plastered downstairs and a good sellar under it.  We have a good cistern which will hold 50 or 60 barrels of water.  We raised 500 bushels of wheat this last season.  We sold 350 bushels of it at 75c/ bushel.  We have 100 yet.  We sold 135 worth of ... (pork?) this fall.  We raised 8 or 9 bushels of peaches.  Our appel trees had a few appels on them last summer for the first time.  We have six head of horses seven head of cattle 110 acres of land.  We have built a grain house which cost $100.  Our prospect for getting along appears to be tolerably good at this time.  We have another daughter.  She was born the 23rd of October last.  We call her Matilda Elizabeth.  Edward is going to school and is learning very fast.  Elisabeth is getting $1.75 a week for all that she can do.  She is well supplied with clothing.  She has a bed and plenty of bed clothes and she has got 5 head of cattle, 3 of them I suspect will be milk cows next summer.  We would like to see you and your husband and have a chat with you very much.  We received a letter from father week before last.  He is in Missouri-Gentry Co.  We have been looking for a letter from you, but don't get any.  Do write oftener.  Do not forget to write and tell us how you are getting along.  Elisabeth wrote a letter to you since we received yours.  Whether you got it or not don't know.
     Your affectionate sister   Rebekah Ham"
     It is clear from this latter that William Russell and his family had arrived in Gentry County, Missouri, only very recently, probably in the fall of 1849, since they would not have wanted to be traveling in the winter.  In addition, the "Elisabeth" mentioned in the letter was undoubtedly Elizabeth Russell, a younger, unmarried sister of Rebecca.  At this time she was living with the Hamm family and working on the farm for $1.75 a week.

b."October the 8 1856
Dear brother and sister.
     I received a letter from you today.  We was very glad to hear from you once more.  I am sorry to hear that the child has been sick this summer.  Henry and the children are well  I have been sick but I am ... well.  Two weeks ago today we left fathers.  We have been their on a visit.  They was all well but father had worked to hard.  He was not bed sick but was not able to work.  Mother had been sick with the ... for three weeks and was just able to set up when we got their.  It takes us about four days to go their.  father has got forty acres of prairie land and twenty acres of timber a comfortable framed house and a good well of water in ten feet of the house.  Lewis lives in a mile of father  Lewis talks of moving back to Missouri  Mahala talks of writing to you  fathers would like to get a letter from you.  They did not know where you lived until I toll them.  When you write fathers direct your letter to Henry Co. Salem P O Iowa.  If you get this write soon.  No more at present
     This from your affectionate sister   Rebekah Ham
     Henry has gone to meeting tonight."
     Apparently, Lewis Russell and his family had moved to Henry County, Iowa, with his parents and were still living there in the fall of 1856; however, they had moved to Missouri by the following New Years Day.  Indeed, the letter specifically mentions that Lewis was talking of moving back to Missouri.  (Lewis' father-in-law, Timothy Perkins, was still living in Gentry County.)   It would seem that he must have shortly acted on his intentions, since, again, moving in mid-winter would have been undesirable.

c."December the 17 1852 AD
Dear Brother and Sister.
     I take pen in hand to let you know that we are all well at present and I hope that this will find you all well.  The baby has been sick all fall.  She was so very sick in September that know one that saw her thought she would live twelve hours but by the blessing of the Lord she is still living and I hope she may live to enjoy the blessing of ... Lord.  She has just strength enough to set alone.  She was born the 27 of last March.  Her name is Alice Rebekah.  She is a little black eyed girl.  The reason I have not written before is that I was waiting for Mahala to come out here.  But she has not come to see us.  I heard she was married so I will not wait any longer.  She married a man was not 21 years old.  His name is Frazier.  Elizabeth folks was all well when they were here about a month ago.  When you find out where Jestin Post office is I want you to write and tell me.  Henry has gone to get a load of wood to keep us warm up here in this cold climate.  Edward  Mary Adaline  Sarah Emeline  Matilda Elizabeth go to school this winter.  You would be surprised to see the children.  They are so large.  Edward is taller than I am.  Mary A is almost as tall  The crops are sorry poor this year.  We have had a great deal of rain this year.  No more at present.
     This is from your affectionate sister Rebekah Ham to Edward and Sharlotte Stephens
     Write to us soon"
     The date of this letter has been transcribed "1852"; however, this cannot be correct since it is certain that Mahala Russell and B. H. Frazier did not marry until the fall of 1858.  In addition, the baby, Alice Rebecca, mentioned in the letter was born in the spring of 1858.  Therefore, since the tone of the letter indicates that both of these events were quite recent, it becomes immediately evident that the date of the letter was December 17, 1858, instead of 1852.

4. op. cit. (Ramos and Kratz)
Original letter from Rebecca Russell Hamm to Effie Clark in possession of Iona Madren (granddaughter of Stephen and Lydia Hockett Russell):

"Island City, Mo.  April 9, 1900
Dear niece
     I am up and around but have a very bad cold.  Levina and I are staying with the Leonard children this week while they take Effie to Kansas City to see a doctor.  I have been with ... ever since the sixteenth of Feb 16th.  Mollie bought a farm one ....  A house with seven rooms in it.  Oscar has been quite sick but is most well again.  There babe died before she went to her new home.  They sent Oscar word but he did not get it till after it was buried.  I did not get here in time to see the baby.  I got a letter last week Flora had a very bad cold Frank wasn't feeling well.  Edith was well.  She cant walk yet but she is real qute.  Has Sadie gone to housekeeping.
     Love to all." [from Rebecca Hamm]
     In 1900, Rebecca Hamm was living with her niece, Levina Russell, near the village of Island City in Gentry County, Missouri.  The parents of the "Leonard children" were E. V. and Sarah E. Russell Leonard.  Sarah was a sister to Levina and a niece of Rebecca Hamm.  The baby that died was Alice Faye Osborn, daughter of Oscar and Mary Ann Russell Osborn.  Mary Ann (Mollie) was also a sister to Levina and a niece of Rebecca.  According to census records, the Osborn family lived in Kansas.  Nevertheless, the letter implies that the baby died in Gentry County.  In addition, other sources indicate that the baby died February 14, 1900, which is consistent with the arrival of Rebecca on the sixteenth and her statement that she was not in time to see the baby.

5. Sadly, family tragedy and early death were all too frequent in the Hamm family and, consequently, descendants are comparatively few.

*"KEMP--Two little boys of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Kemp residing eight miles up the Loup valley were burned to death on Wednesday under exceedingly sad circumstances.  At noon Mr. Kemp directed his ten-year-old boy to fire a straw stack standing about forty rods from the house.  Their little girl 8 years old accompanied them leaving as they supposed their little brother 6 years old at the house. The father went to the field to plow.  The straw was fired by the boy and when the flames were leaping over the top of it the screams of the 6 year old boy were heard from the flames on top of the stack, he having either preceded or followed his brother and sister unknown to them and taken that fatal position.  The oldest boy mounted the stack, passed through the roaring flames, grabbed his little brother and carried him down, laying him with his clothes burned off and his body burned horribly, upon the ground, and then with his own clothes on fire ran toward the house, reaching there with his clothes burned off.  The little girl ran to call her father.  Dr. Binney was sent for and everything possible done for the relief of the little sufferers, but the youngest died that evening while his heroic brother lingered in anguish till Tuesday morning when he passed away.   [Nance County--From the Telescope.]"   (news item: The Columbus Journal, Columbus, NE, Wed., Apr. 22, 1885.)

Second Generation

1. Edward Hamm, the only son of Henry and Rebecca Russell Hamm, was married to Lucy Warefield and living in Sherman Township, Story County, Iowa, by 1870.  They apparently had a young daughter, Cora E., age one.  (In addition, his unmarried sister, Sarah, seems to have also been living in Story County near Ames in the household of Thomas S. Ware and was, perhaps, teaching school.)  Subsequently, the family moved back to Illinois and by 1880 the family of Edward Hamm was resident in Washington County, Illinois, and along with Coraetta (Cora) age eleven, contained three younger children, Lucy, Edward, and Frank, ages seven, four, and three, respectively.  It appears that Ed and Lucy Hamm moved to Columbia County, Arkansas, about 1890 and by 1910 they were evidently living in the town of Bradley, Arkansas, in neighboring Lafayette County.  In the population schedule of the 1910 US Census for Lafayette County, Arkansas, the occupation of Edward Hamm was indicated as retired merchant (grocer).
