  • Notes 
    • - 27 March 1878, Columbus Daily Enquirer-Sun:

      "-- Saturday afternoon, at Byron, on the Southwestern Railroad, Mr. Warren Peavy shot and killed his brother-in-law, young Mr. Hammock. Ten buckshot were fired into his body. Family trouble. Hammock was unarmed, and his only offense seems to have been that he was riding out Peavy's child, his own niece."

      30 March 1878:

      "-- Mr. Hammock, shot Saurday by Mr. Seavy, at Byron's Station, S.W.R.R., is dead. Seavy is still at large."

      - From The Georgia Black Book: Morbid, Macabre, & Sometimes Disgusting Records of Genealogical Value by Robert Scott Davis, Jr. Page 326: "On 23 March 1878 in Houston Co., T. C. Hammock was murdered by Warren Peavy."

      "In October 1899, Grandpa Joe made a trip to Mineral Wells and on the way back to the farm the team became spooked while crossing a puddle of water. Joe could not control the team and was thrown from the wagon, sustaining injuries which caused his death a few days later."
