Re: William LaCount Lambert, Watson, MO
Do you descend from John Lambert and his wife Amanda who settled in Merrick Co., NE? In the 1885 census for Merrick Co., Amanda is a widow and listed with the following children: Samuel-18, Farnbar?-32 (probably Farnam), Alice-25 (w.o. Farnam). Farnam and Alice listed with children Lacount-6 andDelphena-2.
I could be wrong but I believe Amanda was married to John Lambert who served with his brother Beeson in the 36th IA Inf. John and Beeson are brothers of my ggf Parkhill Lambert and sons of James and Mary (Blair) Lambert of Fayette Co., PA. I have Beesons Civil War record and am waiting on John's record whose pension was applied for by Amanda while living in NE. Let me know what you think.
