Thank you Bill for answering my request. It does look as though this could be the William and family that I have been searching for. I wonder if the Toledo Blade holds any further clues in its archives. I understand that sadly William died in 1884(?) after he had been attacked by someone though how true this story is I don't know. An article dated 10/7/1884 apparently gives a brief account about a Mr Lamb's condition, the photocopy of the clipping I have is very poor and I can only make out bits of it. I would be so pleased to solve this puzzle and I would be grateful for any help or advice you can offer.
