Birth: Mar. 7, 1797
Strafford County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: Feb. 16, 1880
Belknap County
New Hampshire, USA

His parents were William HAM and Anne Meader HAM.
He married Mercy Prescott Hill, and they raised a large family.

He became a Christian in early life, but did not enter the ministry till forty-three years of age. He was ordained a Freewill Baptist minister at Gilmanton Iron Works, N.H., in 1840. He was instrumental in the organization of the church in that place and it was largely through his efforts that the meeting-house was built. He was pastor of the church several years. After this he continued to preach nearly every Sabbath in his own or adjoining towns, till the infirmities of age forbade further labor. He settled in the town of Gilmanton in 1834.

In 1867-68, he represented his town in the Legislature; the latter term he served as chaplain of the House.
He gave four sons to the war. His health was always good till the August before his death, when he was stricken with paralysis. He was a consistent Christian and a patriotic citizen.
