I'm not sure if I'll ever figure out the correct spelling of his name, which appears differently in each U.S. census I have found: Bazzell Hammer (1850), Basil Hommer (1860), Bazil Hammer (1870)3, and Bazel R. Hamer (1880).1 There is also a marriage record with Bazzel R. Haymer.2

Bazil's first marriage was to Harriet Blake on 19 October 1848 in Morgan County, Ohio. Stephen Parrish, J.P., certified that he united them in marriage.4

After his first wife died, his second marriage was to Ellen D. Core, daughter of John Paden and Catharine Farmsworth, on 25 December 1881 in Ritchie County, West Virginia. The ceremony was performed by James A. Hogue.2

Bazel died on 31 March 1893 at Big Bend, Calhoun County, West Virginia.5 Bazel's body was interred on 1 April 1893 at Big Bend, Calhoun County, West Virginia;5
