Lambs in Fayette County 1829- 1850

The original was in response to a post by Ed Lamb on the Lamb Forum. He wrote about William Lamb who died in Richmond Co., NC in 1820. Could Miriam have been a second wife for William? She apparently died in Fayette Co., GA in 1847 as Reddick and an otherwise unknown Morgan Lamb sold her farm there in 1848.

Ed, there is a remote chance that our families were related. The dates, however, do not correspond. The death of your William does compute, though. His children were born too early to be siblings of my Lambs below.

I think that the mother of these children was Miriam. They were born in NC:
Jacob Lamb, b. 1802 (Daughter Amanda married an Odom)
Reddick Lamb b. 1808 married Nancy Griffin.
Joshua Lamb b. 1810 removed to AL.
Permelia Lamb b. 1815 m. Cornelius Gibson in GA.
John Lamb b. 1818 m. two Newton sisters in GA. (Newtons were in Richmond Co. before Marlboro, SC and then GA.)

In a book on Richmond Co., NC, Reddick and Morrum (Mariam) were purchasers at an estate sale for Nicholas Smith. This is my one clue to a NC location. Miriam/Mariam was a widow on the 1830 Marlboro, SC census.

Could another son of your William be Miriam's husband or could she be a second wife??
