Hi Melba, Lawanda and I share common ancestors and cousins. In the late summer or early fall of 1906, Bert Lambert was among a group of men who came to the NM Territory to stake out homesteads on the high plains near present-day House, NM. Among them were, also: Burt Porter, Elisha Polk Russell, James Peter Kirk, Joe Beevers J. D. Payne and one or two others. The families joined them in the early spring of 1907. Elisha Russell was the brother of Lizzie Russell Kirk, wife of James Peter Kirk. Elisha and his wife, Mary Caughron, had five daughters, one of which was Mabel (1894 AR - 1958 WA), who married Bert Lambert several years later. The only children's names I have are: W.B., Fannie Mae and Memrov Hugh; there are probably others. Both the Russell and Lambert families moved to the state of Washington sometime around 1930. Mabel and her sister Fannie each had reddish auborn hair.
