Due to his short lifespan, we have very little information on James himself. What we do have comes from his son, John Hammon, Sr.'s, Revolutionary War Pension Application where he states his mother told him his father died when John was about 3 years of age. The other source is the famous 'Douglass Register' of the Dover Church in St. James Northham Parish in Goochland County, Virginia, which has this entry: 'James HAMMOND and Mary HARGIS, a son named John born January 29, 1760, baptized June 8, 1760.
James was born in Caroline County, Virginia in about 1730. Based on the Douglass Register entry and John's Revolutionary War Pension Application, he would have died in 1763 in Goochland County, Virginia.
