I have been tracing the lineage of Lambert Smack and have found an Orphan's Court Record for him dated 1829, His mother, Ann Smack, gives permission for her son, Lambert Smock, an illegitimate mulatto to be apprenticed to Ebenezer Powell with sureties by Isaac Holland and Esme Bowen. Lambert is 8 years old at the time, having turned 8 the previous March 26 - making his birth date March 26, 1821. His apprenticeship will last until he is 21 years old and he will be trained in farming and also be taught to read and write. Does anyone know who Ann Smack's parents or siblings are? I am assuming Ann is white, but she is sometimes identified as Black in census records.
In the 1850 census, Dist 9, Worcester, MD, Lambert lives near Ann Smack and also another family of Smack's, Henry and Louisa Smack, Henry is the son of John A, Smack and the grandson of Henry and Mary Smack. Listed with Lambert, age 28 is Philiss, age 33 and Caroline, Harry and Bill. I am assuming (but have no proof) that Philiss is his wife and Caroline and Harry his children. In Lambert's will, filed 10/16/1876, William (Bill) is identified as a step-son.
In the 1860 census Lambert is in Newark, MD with wife Harriet Wilson (m.12/24/1857 in Worcester, MD) and children.
