I am looking for knowledge about the parents, siblings and first wife of Frank John Lambert, also known as Jean Baptiste Lambert. His ancestors were French-Canadian as you may have guessed. He was born on August 28, 1852 in Skowhegan, Somerset county, Maine. He was married twice, his second wife’s name was Agnes Taylor. They were married on August 20, 1895 in Howard, Kansas. On the marriage application he was listed as J. B. and gave Logan,Oklahoma as his address. Their children’s names were Opie Reed Lambert, born in 1895 and Olin Harry Lambert (my father) born in 1897. They lived in Blandinsville and Lewistown, Illinois. Frank John was a barber. I know he had children by the first marriage and some of them lived in the Chicago area at one time. One of the Chicago Lamberts was in the lamp business, I believe. If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
