  • Robert E. Hammond (1859-1931)
    • 18 Jul 2009 email from Alicia Livengood
      "Educated at Lebanon Normal and was off teaching by age 20 (born 1859 in Ashland, KY). Moved to the Montana Territory in 1887 where he was a teacher, school administrator, and lawyer by profession. He represented District 11 (Jefferson County, MT) in 1889 at the Montana Constitutional Convention in Helena. Had two substantial motions during the proceedings, but is unofficially credited with having written a significant portion of the document. Clearly a member of Free Masonry. Married with two children, one girl and one boy.
      "Had two published biographies. One from the late nineteenth century, and another in the early twentieth century. The group of men who represented the Montana Territory at the 1889 Constitutional Convention were prominently featured in a completely irresponsible 1989 publication where the group was referred to as the "Floundering Fathers." The author of the chapter recounting the proceedings of the convention admitted that there is no evidence linking Robert E. Hammond to any of the bigoted remarks made by others in attendance at the convention, where such behavior served as inspiration for the book chapter.
      "Died 1931 in Washington state."

      Mabel Todd was born 27 June 1872 in Hogan Township, Dearborn County, Indiana the eldest of the ten children of John Alexander and Ellen Welhoff Todd. Mabel and two of her sisters and a brother became teachers. She attended nearby Moores Hill College and National Normal University in Lebanon, Ohio and taught school from 1892 to 1897 in Wilmington, Dillsboro and Greendale, all in Dearborn County. She attended NNU for sure in 1894, probably in 1892, and possibly at other times about then. Greendale was a two-teacher school where she taught the younger children and the other teacher (and principal), Frank Lee Houston taught the older children. She stopped teaching in 1897 when she married Frank. In 1900 they moved to a farm near Chesterville, Indiana where they lived the rest of their lives. Frank died in 1954 at age 85 and Mabel died at age 97 in 1970.
