Hammond will present Island Adventures:The Hawaiian Mission of Francis A. Hammond, 1851-1865 that will focus on the Hammond family’s time in the Sandwich Islands (Hawai’i), where the birth of F.B. Hammond takes place in March of 1855. The public will then be invited back at 2pm, as Dr. Hammond will present The San Juan Mission of Francis A. Hammond, 1883-1900 which follows the Hammond Family from Huntsville, Utah to Monticello and eventually, Moab. Francis A. Hammond was the stake president of the LDS church San Juan Stake from 1885-1900, which covered the Four Corner’s Area (southwestern Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, and southeastern Utah) and included Moab. Frank Hammond lived most of the time in Bluff, Utah, but for the last three years of his life he lived in Moab, and many of his children and their spouses lived there for many years.
