    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.

    *Samuel Shannon born in 1718, emigrated from the Province of Ulster, Ireland, in 1749, and settled in Bucks county, Pa. He was the father of eight children, viz.:

    4. John Shannon, born June 30, 1751;
    5. Samuel Shannon, born November 4, 1754;
    6. David Shannon, his third son, married Ann Sample, daughter of Captain Robert Sample who served in the Tenth Regiment Pennsylvania Continental Line, and who was one of the original subscribers of the Society of the Cincinnati. They had nine children, as follows:
    a. Ann Shannon, born August 1, 1780, married William Wilson;

    h. James Shannon, born November 2, 1800, never married;
