  • Name Martin HAMM 
    Born Abt Feb 1740  [2
    Gender Male 
    History In the 1776 West Prussia Census he is listed in Lakendorf with 1 son and 2 daughters (H. Penner, p. 436). He was a member of the Rosenort Gemeinde and later the Danzig Gemeinde. Unruh (p. 340) says he migrated from Neuteicherhinterfeld, Prussia in 1803 to Halbstadt, Molotschna. He moved to the Chortitza Colony prior to his death. He was a tailor per records extracted from the Chortitza Church records by Peter Penner (b. 7 Oct. 1851), but B.H. Unruh, p. 340, says he was a brandy distiller. The Martin Hamm Family Tree and the diary of Jacob Niebuhr (b. 4 May 1862) state he was born in 1742. The Old Colony, p. 227, states he was born in Feb 1740.
    Martin Hamm emigrated from West Prussia to Chortitza in 1789. His wife had died in West Prussia. According to Mother's writings, he came to the Old Colony with 12 children although the above table shows only seven. According to O. Hamm's records, there were only seven children.
