A Surname Inquiry

I am pursuing the origins of the Hammonds of the Dufferin and Muskoka regions in Ontario. My Hammonds are from Dufferin ( William Hammond and Jane Westover ) and we have no surviving male heirs to the surname Hammond. Another branch of the name settled in the Muskoka region. They were John Hammond (1841-1916) and Isabella Harriet Craig (1844-1914). Their offspring are numerous. I am looking for a male heir of this branch who is amenable to having a DNA swab test analyzed at Family Tree DNA. I will pay for an Autosomal DNA ( Family Finder) and a yDNA 37 marker test for a cousin who is willing.The male offspring of John and Isabella were: Wesley, Egbert, John J., Robert E., and William H. THEIR male offspring include: Reginald, Ron, Ross, Anson, Robert, Calvin, Elmer, Aubrey, Alonzo, Cecil, and Orvil. If you know any male Hammonds who you think might Spring from these names, please refer them to this inquiry. They can contact me at pmulder@oricom.ca ThanksRob Ireland
