The Author's Note:º

1 Son of General John Hammond, Colonel 5th New York Volunteer Cavalry.

Thayer's Note:

a Mr. Hammond's birthdate is from his tombstone, q.v.; the month given in Vol. VI of the Register must be an error.

Although I haven't found any precise birthplace indicated anywhere yet, it was very likely Crown Point, NY; not only was he buried there after a long career elsewhere, but his AOG obituary states that he was "the son of John Hammond of Crown Point, New York" and again that "During his furlough in '74, as many of his classmates know, his hospitality at his father's home at Crown Point, N. Y., was delight­ful".
