  1. Sorry I shall not be there as I am in Australia. I read somewhere that on market days the train stopped at Picketstown. Across the line from Picketstown is a piece of land (small farm?) that was once called Hammondville and was until recently marked as such on some maps. This was the abode of Dr Hammond (of Hammondville) of Tramore whose daughter Margaret married William Curtis (1781-1855). Margaret and William would be my g-g grandparents. I shall be very interested to hear from anyone who can throw light on the life and time of Dr (William?) Hammond of Hammondville, Tramore, CO Waterford.
