Thomas Paul Lamb emigrated to the USA in 1871, born in Ireland, moved to Great Britain, prior to coming to the USA. Born on 7/20/1853, he was only 18 years old when he arrived in the USA. His sister, Kate, also came to the USA; married (Kate Coll) and lived in Newark, NJ. When Thomas died in 1934, his obituary listed three relatives in England; brother, Frank; sister, Mary Williams; and Elizabeth O'Grady, twin sister of Kate Coll.
I am his great grandson and have been researching the Lamb family, which is primarily a northern New Jersey group of family members.
I have been researching the following family lines in Ireland: Lamb(Laois County), Morton (Leitrim County), Clancy (Waterford County) and Greehy (Waterford County). These are on my paternal side of the family.
My maternal side of the family are Colwell(Rome,NY), Bedell (Greene County) and Booth (Dutchess County). I have records and documents that are in the 1800's for the Bedell family.
