Soak beans, rinse and remove any trash. Bring water to a boil in a stock pot. Add salt and beans to pot. Remove from heat, cover and let sit 1 hour. After 1 hour, return to high and add remaining ingredients except chopped ham to pot and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 60 minutes. Remove ham bone and discard after removing whatever meat is on the bone and putting it into the pot. Add chopped ham, simmer 30 minutes, taste and re-season if needed. Serve with cornbread.
