Goven Evander Hammond
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 6, 1821
Marion County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Nov. 26, 1898

National Archives records show that Goven was a Prisoner of War captured at the Battle of Iuka, on the l9th of September l862; of Corinth, on the 3rd and 4th and of Hatchie, on the 5th and 6th of October, l862; who was paroled. His parole date was not stated.

He volunteered to enlist in the Civil War in Feb. l863 in the Columbia Guards, 38th Miss. Regiment. He was wounded presumably in the Battle of Iuka in Corinth. During this time he was taken prisoner and had one of his legs badly mangled. He took blood poisoning in his leg and the Doctors gave him up for a casualty. He was placed in a back room where some red peppers were strung up over the bed. He would take these peppers and crush them in his hands and rub them into his wounds. The peppers killed the blood poison and his leg began to heal. Although he remained a cripple, he later returned to Marion Co. MS, married and raised a large family.

According to Mr. Earnest Hammond as of September l975 someone dug up Goven's grave and removed the remains of his body and his Tombstone. It is said he was buried with Civil War memorabilia. It was not known who or why or where it went.

Goven and Martha's 6th child was Marion A. Hammond and 2nd husband of Henrietta Smith Summers Hammond Mullins and father of Ameal Coon Hammond and Cairl Carney Sr. Hammond. His birthdate was about 1860 and death date is thought to be abt. 1895. His burial location is unknown but my guess would be that he is buried in the Smith Cemetery near New Hope, MS because Henrietta's parents and 1st husband are buried there.
