HAMMOND, Charles, lawyer and journalist, born in Baltimore county, Maryland, in September, 1779; died in Cincinnati, Ohio, 3 April, 1840. When he was six years of age his father removed to Ohio county, Virginia, where the son worked for a time on a farm. He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1801, and practised in Wellsburg, Virginia. He became a frequent contributor to the newspapers, first obtaining a favorable notice by a series of articles in the "Scioto Gazette" in defence of General St. Clair, published the "Ohio Federalist" at St. Clairsville from August, 1813 to 1817, and in 1822 removed to Cincinnati, where he edited the "Gazette" from 1825 till his death. He was a member of the Ohio legislature in 1816-'18 and 1820, and was reporter of the Ohio supreme court in 1823-'38. He was an earnest advocate of a system of internal improvements, and of a thorough common school system.
