Somehow or other, I ended up publishing some information about the HORN Family Group, but did not seem to have a blog about it. This may have been because I did not have an accurate backup of my old blog, and it has been lost, or it was an oversight.
I was recently contacted by Pamela, who’s ancestors migrated from the UK to America and ended up in Gorham, Maine. According to the “History of Gorham”, two Gammon brothers came from England when they were quite young, and Pamela would like to track down where they came from in England and trace her family further back in time.
She has sent me quite a bit of information about these brothers, which I am in the process of analysing. But in the meantime, here is a short summary:
“The brothers came from England when they were quite young. They lived first in Cape Elizabeth. Then Joseph lived in Falmouth before he moved to Gorham. On July 7, 1757, Phillip moved from Scarborough to Gorham and purchased a hundred acre lot from David Gorham. Joseph’s property was next to Phillips.”
I will post more information once I have processed it, but if this information rings a bell, then please post a comment and let us know!
This afternoon, I responded quickly to a query from David GAMMON who has family connections with Nova Scotia, Canada and has also researched other GAMMON lines in Maine and New Hampshire. He has traced his family back to John GAMMON (born around 1733) who moved to Nova Scotia, Canada around 1755. This John Gammon’s wife is either Frances or Lucy (born around 1737).
I have done some uncompleted work on some Gammons in Nova Scotia and New Hampshire. One day soon, I should fish it out and try and finish it.
In any case, if you are reading this and you have Gammon families in Canada or the USA then please do get in touch. I might at least be able to put you in touch with other researchers.
