Born in Prince William on 1765 to Obediah Hammond and Betty Pullen. Obediah married Elizabeth Skaggs and had 10 children. Obediah married Susannah Garland. He passed away on 1848 in Prince William Cty, Virginia, USA.

Ruth Elkins Skaggs Bishop

She may fit in somehow. Possibly the mother of Thomas Skaggs, but also married to a John Skaggs before marrying John Bishop. Again, a lot of misinformation, or confused information.

http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vafloyd/johnbishopfamilyoffloydcountybycarolsutherland.htm

Mary Jefferson

Married Julius Nichols. Mother of Susannah Nichols Garland.

Was Mary Jefferson related to Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd President?

Thomas Jefferson Family Sheet

Mary Jefferson Family Sheet

Mary Jefferson (1747)<-Field Jefferson (1701)<-Thomas Jefferson (1679)->Peter Jefferson (1708)->Thomas Jefferson (1743)

However, I suspect this data because Mary's daughter, Susannah, was born five years before Mary, in 1742. And that this Susannah Nichols is married to Colonel Charles Robinson.

Another source has Susannah born in 1759, meaning Mary would have been 12. Still seems unlikely.

But if true, then Mary Jefferson and President Thomas Jefferson were 1st cousins.

This source has Mary JEFFERSON was born on 1 October 1741 in , Shadwell, Albermarle, Virginia. She died in 1817 at the age of 76 in , , , Virginia. She has Ancestral File Number CM8F-Q3. Parents: . Parents: Peter JEFFERSON and Jane RANDOLPH.

Spouse: ??? NICHOLS. Children were: Susanna NICHOLS, William NICHOLS.

If it's the same person, then this Mary is Thomas Jefferson's sister.

But the same source has

Mary JEFFERSON was born in 1745 in ,Richmond,North Carolina. She has Ancestral File Number 1XM5-FLK. Parents: Field JEFFERSON and Mary Frances ROBERTSON.

Spouse: Julius NICHOLS. Mary JEFFERSON and Julius NICHOLS were married in 1760 in ,Richmond,North Carolina. Children were: William NICHOLS, Susannah NICHOLS.

This is more likely the correct one.

Julius Nichols

Susannah Nichols Garland

It appears there may be two Susannah Nichols in various genealogies. One has Susannah Nichols married to Obediah Hammond. The other has Susannah Nichols married to Col. Charles Robertson. Often they link back to the same set of parents, or at least parents with the same names.

There is a Julius Caesar Nichols, father of Susannah Nichols that may be the confusion point.

When pairing Susannah Nichols with John Garland (Sr), various birth dates emerge: 1759-02-12, 1760, 7 Feb 1760, ABT 1763, abt 1775. Marriage dates: 8 AUG 1781
