We have a lot of information on Rev. William Hammon. He is believed to be the first son of John Hammon I (1685- ca. 1758). There are many contributors, but most of the information I have has been provided by Neal Owen Hammon who in turn received much of his information from his father, Stratton Owen Hammon. Much of this information comes from land transactions, church records, early tax lists, as witness to various transactions, and his will.
William was born in Caroline County, Virginia in about 1713. His exact birth date is unknown. His will is dated December 10, 1793 and probated May Term 1800, where it states he died on December 19, 1793 in Wilkes County, North Carolina. He is buried in the Roaring River Baptist Church Cemetery.
He was the first pastor of the Roaring River Baptist Church in about 1774. In early 1786 he opened the Gambrills' Hollow Baptist Church in Wilkes County, North Carolina and on July 10, 1790 he petitioned to be a transient minister.
