We are from FT. Morgan, Colorado: Jon Randal Lamborn Rollan, Jon, Lamborn - Father Kenneth Lamborn- Grandfather Rolland J Lamborn- Great Grandfather ???? Lamborn- Great Great Grandfather (My father might know more)
My great great grandfather received a land grant along the railroad in the eastern plains of Colorado in the 1800's when the US governement was giving land grants to ranchers settle Colorado. Their primary livestock was sheep until Rolland/and or Kennth switched to cattle. My great grandfathers would herd sheep into the mountains during the summers.
In any case, I do have an Ellwood Lamborn, born in Lancaster, County Pa in 1836 in my original book published in 1894 " The Genology of the Lamborn Family" compiled by Samuel Lamborn and his wife. He was a machinest and blacksmith. Later was in the US Army as Corporal of the 1st regiment Indiana Volunteer Engineers during the civil war in the "late rebelion". After the war he returned to farming in PA. But it appears he lived in Steelton, Pa most of his life not Colorado. He errected a house there and died of "consumption" six weeks after construction.
