Joseph Lambert of Bradley TN and Newton MO
Posted by: Betty Tartas (ID *****3449) Date: June 29, 2007 at 06:38:31

I am looking for more information on JOSEPH LAMBERT b abt 1828 possibly NC, his parents JOHN & NANCY LAMBERT were in Bradley Co TN by 1840.

JOSEPH LAMBERT married a Sophrona around 1850-1851. I am trying to ascertain whether or not her maiden name was Thompson. I have a Sophrona Thompson in Bradley Co TN, sister of my gg grandmother, who appears to have stayed in TN when the family moved to AR/MO.

1850 Bradley Co TN 26th subdivision
JOHN LAMBERT age 60 b NC (also listed in 1840 Bradley Co TN census, one of the original settlers of Bradley TN from North Carolina)
Nancy Lambert age 50
John A Lambert age 14
Mary Lambert age 11 later married a Samuel Pirkle or Pirkel as per 1860 Bradley TN Census

(Sophrona Thompson/Tompson age 18 listed in Bradley Co TN 26th subdivision with her parents & siblings.)

1860 Bradley Co TN District 7
Saphrona Lambert age 30
William Lambert age 8
Marsanna (sp?) Lambert age 5
Thomas Lambert age 3
Onney B Lambert (f) age 2

JOSEPH LAMBERT is listed in the book "Bradley Divided" as a Union Soldier in Company G 5th Infantry. His brother John A Lambert is also listed as a Union Soldier, Company E 4th Cavalry, noted that John died in battle March 23, 1863.

1870 Newton Co Missouri, Granby township
JOSEPH LAMBERT age 44 miner
Sephrona Lambert age 40
William Lambert age 17
Annie M Lambert age 15
Thomas Lambert age 12
Ona B Lambert (f) age 10
Joseph W Lambert age 6
John B Lambert age 2

Newton Co Missouri is not too far from Christian, Taney & Douglas Co MO where my Thompsons settled. I think Neosho is the county seat??

1880 Newton Co Missouri, Granby township
JOSEPH M LAMBERT age 53 miner
Sophronia Lambert age 50
Hiram T (Thomas?) Lambert age 21; miner
Ona B Lambert age 19
Joseph W Lambert age 15
John W Lambert age 12

I can't as yet find Joseph & Sophronia Lambert in 1900 census, so they may have died before then. At least three of their children remained in Newton Co Granby twp MO and are present in 1900 census: Joseph Lambert, John Lambert and William Lambert. Ona Lambert may have married a Hudson.

Any help or comments greatly appreciated.
