I am searching for Hammes family in the Schuylkill Co. area in the early to mid 1800s. My gggrandmother was Lucinda (Lucy) Hammes who was born Aug. 6, 1849. She married John Mill in Schuylkill Co. in 1869. In 1870 they were living in N. Manheim Twp., in 188- they were in Schuylkill Haven, 1900 found them in Philadelphia, Lucy was back in Schuylkill Haven in 1910 and she died in Philadelphia in 1929. Her husband John Mill was also seen in Orwigsburg before marrying Lucy, who was his second wife. I just got Lucy's death certificate and it lists her parents as John W. Hammes and Sarah Schery. I'm trying to find either of these two people and figure out more about them. Lucy's daughter in law told me Lucy was one of thirteen children, so there's a big family of them hiding out there somewhere!
Thanks for your help!
