Elizabeth Egbert Hammond was born in Sullivan, Sullivan County, Indiana on March 22, 1824 to John Egbert and Susanna Hahn.
The Egbert family followed the body of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints first to Kirtland, Ohio, Missouri and on to Illinois sharing the hardships and persecutions being endured by the followers of Joseph Smith at that time.
On April 16, 1842 Elizabeth Egbert married Joseph Hammond in Golden Point, Hancock County, Illinois. At the time the Prophet was martyred the Hammond family was living six miles from Carthage and when the information reached them they walked the distance carrying the baby (John Egbert Hammond) in order to be with those in distress due to the death of their beloved leader.
On 26 May 1848, the Hammond family left Winter Quarters in the Brigham Young Company of 1229 people, arriving in Salt Lake Valley 21 September 1848. The Hammond family settled at Cottonwood where they lived in a dugout while they built a log house. Joseph labored as a teacher, having been a teacher most of the time.
During the Echo Canyon war with Johnson's Army, the family moved south. After the battle they moved back and raised a good crop of grain in 1861.
