Reflections for Police Officer Howard Bee Hammond

Officer Howard Bee Hammond was Boswell Bee Hammond's (1846–1916) grandson. Howard's father, Herman Luther (1886–1926​​), Boswell's seventh son, moved west from Georgia to Texas where he married Howard's mother, Alberta Pruitt (1890-1961) in Gregg County, TX, on 14 August, 1910. Just as Boswell's eldest son, Marshal James "Jim" Washington, (1869-1907) was killed on duty, so was his youngest grandson, Howard.

Rest In Peace, Sir.

John Michael Hammond
1st cousin to Officer Howard Bee Hammond.
