Hello Mariliyn.
It's been two years but I finally found someone with some answers and I thought you might like an update. Turns out the Forest Lamm I was looking for had the full name of James Forest Lamm, b 1896 - died 1980 in San Diego, Ca. He may have lived in SD for a while but apparently moved on later. Jas. Forest was one of the children of William Lamm (1844-1911) and William was the brother of Sloan Black Lamm. Both brothers had a son whose middle name was Forest.

Another mystery was cleared up for me. You listed what looks like a discrepancy in that William's wife Nancy (1849-1889) appeared to have died before their son Wm. Everett was born in 1894. For the longest time I had also wondered how this could be possible. I just learned two days ago that William had 3 wives, 2 of them having the first name of Nancy. The first wife was Fannie Giles, my 2nd-gr-grandmother, then Nancy Hickman, and finally Nancy Chipley who appears in the 1900 census with her husband and three children.

I wrote this thinking that you may be going back through old messages, come across this and think, "I wonder if he ever found anything?" Thought I would just ease your mind. Thank you for your help in the past.

Mike Pippin
