Hammels from Ohio
Looking for info regarding the surname Hammel. Have heard that they
were from the Netherlands and from Germany, don't know for sure which
is correct. My Grandmother, Ollie Arvena Sidwell Hooker was the
dau. of Mary E. Hammel. Mary's mother was Catherine Peters who
was married to David Hammel. They were living in Fayette Co. Il
by the mid to late 1800s.
