Matthew Lamb / Lam (1810 Orange VA)
Posted by: Carl Breeden (ID *****5185) Date: November 24, 2002 at 13:21:50
  of 138

I've been working on the Matthew Lamb and Nancy Shifflett marriage (Greene County 8 Oct 1854) and the Matthew Lamb and Nancy Lamb marriage (Greene county 12 Apr 1831).

I believe that Nancy Lamb may have died before 1850. On the 1850 Census records Matthew Lamb is living in the same residence with Nancy Shifflett and a child named George Shifflett (abt 1838).

I think the George Shifflett (1838) is actually George W. lamb (1838) son of Nancy Lamb and Matthew Lamb.

George is married on 12 Jan 1859 in Greene County to a Lucretia Shifflett. On the register his parents are listed simply as Matthew and Nancy Lamb.

In 1850 thier is only 1 Matthew Lamb with no wife named Nancy. He is living in the same HH with a Nancy Shifflett and George Shifflett.

In 1860 Matthew Lamb is listed on the 1860 Greene Census as M. Lamb and Nancy. Nancy is abt 1814, M is about 1810.

This Matthew would be a son of Richard lamb and Sally Unknown based upon his 1854 marriage to Nancy Shifflett.

In 1840 Matthew appears to be living with his parents Richard and Sally based upon the 1840 census records.

1 - male under 5 (George 1838)
3 - males 5 - 10
2 - males 10 - 15
2 - males 20 - 30 (Matthew 1810)
1 - male 60 - 70
1 - female 5 - 10
1 - female 10 - 15
2 - females 20 - 30 (Nancy 1814)
1 - female 60 - 70

Want to know if anybody may have supporting evidence or dis-proving evidence to support this theory.
