    XLVIII. ELIZA HAMMOND, (MARY, MATTHEW, JOHN, JOHN), the youngest daughter of James and Mary Brown Hammond was born in White Deer Valley, Lycoming county, Pa., June 24, 1804, and died October 5, 1850. Being her youngest child, and but two years of age at the time her death occurred, the compiler has no recollection of her, but as a fitting tribute, a sentence, embodied in five words, which has been repeated by her pastor and by many of her acquaintances in the hearing of the writer, and which is expressive of every virtue, is here repeated: “She was a good woman.” She married, in 1832, SAMUEL SHANNON*, son of David and Ann Sample Shannon, born at the Stone Tavern, Northumberland county, Pa., August 9, 1798, and died May 2, 1880; his remains, together with those of his wife, are buried in the graveyard at the Warrior Run Church.
