Note

Julius was in Springfield, IL probably by 1856 and established, along with his brothers, Hammerslough Brothers clothiers. He lived there for about a decade, and was an acquaintance of Abraham Lincoln. Sometime in the mid to late sixties he left Springfield for New York City, and along with his brothers Edward and Samuel, established Hammerslough Brothers there. Samuel Rosenwald bought the Hammerslough brothers interest in their Springfield, IL store in 1868. Hammerslough Brothers and Julius, Edw;ard and Samuel individually are listed in the 1869 New York City directory as clothiers at 403 Broadway. In May, 1889 advertisements appeared in the Dunkirk Observer Journal that Hammerslough Brothers of New York was about to dissolve partnership. In the 1890 directory Hammerslough Brothers and Julius and Edward individually are listed at 482 Broadway - Samuel is listed as a clothier at 26 E. Houston. Julius was the founder and first president of the Clothiers Association of New York City. The April 20, 1889 New York Times notes "The Clothiers Association of New York City gave a banquet to their retiring president. Julius Hammerslough, who has held the post for 15 years, in Delmonico's small ballroom Monday night and presented him a silver loving cup." Julius served for many years as an officer and trustee of the Institution for the Improved Instruction of Deaf Mutes of the City of New7 York. Jewish Life in Small Town America: A History, Lee Shai Weissbach: "Julius Hammerslough was the first Jewish resident of Springfield, IL, a friend of Abraham Lincoln, and a founder of the city's earliest congregation, but after living in Springfield for several years, he departed for New York City in 1865. Abraham Lincoln and the Jews, Isaac Markens: "Of the few Jewish residents of Springfield for several years preceding Lincoln's election to the Presidency, Julius Hammerslough, of the firm of Hammerslough Brothers, enjoyed very friendly relations with Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln. He heard Lincoln's memorable address in Springfield on June 17, 1858. ..... Mr. Hammerslough witnessed Lincoln's first inauguration and frequently called to see him at the White House, the President invariably inquiring of Mr. Hammerslough: "How are the boys?" - referring to the brothers in Springfield. On one occasion he escorted Mrs. Ninian Edwards, a sister of Mrs. Lincoln, from Springfield to Washington. He accompanied Lincoln's remains from Chicago to Springfield as one of a committee of citizens of Lincoln's old home chosen for that purpose, and he also provided the plumes for the funeral car used in Springfield. Hammerslough took a very active part in. the project for the erection of the Lincoln monument in Washington, being appointed by the national monument committee special agent to bring the subject to the notice of the Jews. In a stirring appeal for funds dated Springfield, May 30, 1865 he wrote: "It is above all fitting in this land where the Hebrews have won so proud a name and are so greatly respected and honored that they should thus show their love and veneration for the fallen chief of the nation, whose wisdom, honest and purity of purpose were so highly appreciated by foreign nation's and who was so beloved at home."
