Note: [1]
"As I see it, the candidates to be the father of John HAM of Iredell County would most likely be the residents of Rowan County prior to the formation of Iredell County, and within Rowan County at about the time of John's birth.
These would be:
John HAM
Jacob HAMM (b. Bef. March 22, 1764 in Germany)
George HAM
Melcher (or Mallichi) HAM
Andrew HAMM
Christian HAMM (b. Bef. June 08, 1791 in Germany)
If none of the above are suitable to be the father of John, then one might even assume that John may have settled in Iredell County after having been born in one of the other counties formed from Rowan County (Surry County, Guilford County)."
