Birth: Aug. 13, 1835
Cobb County
Georgia, USA
Death: Feb. 12, 1876
Cobb County
Georgia, USA

Great Great Grandma Hamby was the daughter of Charles B. Hunton and Amelia ?? Hunton. The fifth of eight children. She was born on her Father's land in Marietta, or so we have been told. The family lived in Clarke County and also in Carroll County, Georgia.

Her siblings were: Felix R. Hunton, Walter M. Hunton, John T. Hunton, Minerva Hunton, Baby Hunton and Mary Ann Hunton.

She married Benajah (Benjamin) Judson Hamby on 14 Oct 1857 in Marietta, Cobb County, Georgia, at age 22.

She was the Mother of: David Coweta Hamby, Alice Lee Hamby Daniell, William Virgil Hamby, Lula Minerva Hamby Reed, Carrie Loutilla Hamby Hamby and Emma Mae Hamby Blackwell.

Her children David and Alice were born before the Civil War started. He husband joined the Phillips Legion and was gone till his unit surrendered at Appomattox Court House. He came home and son William was born July 1,1866. Before the war they had a fine plantation where they grew Cotton. They had very few "Slaves," they were mostly family servants. After the war their lives changed drastically. Much of their town was burned by Sherman when he was headed to Atlanta, their home was spared but their property was not. They had many hard years trying to rebuild and Great Grandma passed away before the family was able to financially recover. She died at the age of 40, leaving her husband and six children, the youngest (Emma) about 2 years old. One family story says she died in child birth, but this has not been proven.
