Three Generations of Johann Conrad Ham & Christina Streit

FSID is Family Search ID

Johann Conrad Ham was the sixth child of Conrad Ham who, with his brothers Peter and Caspar, fled the Palatinate region of Germany in 1709 to come to America in 1710 to work for the British government to process tar for the navy. In 1712 they were abandoned to their own devices. The three are among the oldest progenitors of the Ham/Hamm name in America. Johann's wife, Christina Streit, was also a Palatine immigrant, the daughter of Frederick Streit and Anna Catharina Maul. (Footnote: Jones, H. Z. (2001). The Palatine families of New York: A study of the German immigrants who arrived in colonial New York in 1710. Camden, Me: Picton Press. )

The following descendancy uses various sources, primarily Henry Jones' Palatine families of New York, the rough research notes of David Kendal Martin, Warren Hamm, baptism and family records. Wills were primary: the 1806 will of Johann and the 1835 will of his son Conrad were vital. See Charity Dubois' Ancestors page in the "Read more for evidences and proof" section for more on the wills. I doubt it is perfect, but should you have any more information on these people, or have questions or disputes, please do not hesitate to contact me via the email address at the end.
