Natalie Harris of Harris, Mississippi (near Vicksburg) married John Hays on January 1, 1881 in Hancock, Maryland. Together they had three sons and one daughter. John Hays Hammond Jr. (1888-February 12, 1965) was born in San Francisco, California. In 1893 he moved with his family to South Africa, and five years later the family moved to England. The family returned to the United States in 1900 and Hammond attended Lawrenceville School, started inventing and went on to study at the Sheffield School of Yale University, graduating in 1910. He established the Hammond Radio Research Corporation in 1911 and eventually developed a radio controlled torpedo system for the navy, which he successfully demonstrated in 1918. Between 1926 and 1929 he built a medieval-style castle in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Natalie Hays Hammond (1904–1985) was born in Lakewood, New Jersey. Her estate in North Salem, New York was converted into the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden in 1957.
