Note: Note from an email from Audrey Hamm Dominoski.

"They also invited Adrian and Martha Dobson who joined us with their granddaughter, Elizabeth. Because of this I got to go to Ham's Grove Church/Cemetery, Snow Creek Cemetery, and my Dad's old homestead! Elizabeth was in college at the time but had grown up there and was a marvelous guide! Her knowledge of Snow Creek Cemetery astounded me! In return I was able to share articles on the Dobson and Ham families that were published in the Heritage of Iredell County. They hadn't seen them so were delighted. I also have an article on Ham's Grove Church which is very special to me. There was no church for John and Esther's family to worship in so she was instrumental in having a brush arbor constructed on their property to use for this purpose.

I quote from Article #275 Heritage of Iredell County: "In 1913 Charles (Horne) bought the old Friendship Church building which was being removed for a new building, moved it to a portion of land belonging to Silus Ham where services were being held in a brush arbor, bought this land and donated it and the church building to form Ham's Grove Baptist Church. Wilford (Horne), C.H. Horne, and John W. Jordan were the first deacons of this church."[4]

Charles' and Wilford's brother Webb married Myrtle Ham. I worshiped at Ham's Grove on the Sunday I was in Statesville and was able to give them history of their church that even they didn't know. It made me feel good to be able to give something back. Another point of interest is that the church still rests on the original timbers that were laid for the foundation, even after a couple remodelings!

In your e-mail, you referred to John Ham (1770-1847) as John "William" Ham, leading me to believe that you know something I don't! I'd be interested in knowing as much about all our joint ancestors as you are willing to share! I have the Hams and Hairs as coming from Ireland but have no documentation. "
