Re: Lamberth's from Va. to Texas about 1870
It seems a bit unlikely that in ~1870 it would only have taken 3 months from VA to TX by wagon.Around that time, I think that in ideal conditions (weather, roads, good health and so forth), a wagon might have traveled at the rate of about 10 miles per day.Depending upon what part of VA they left from and where in TX they ended up,you are still talking about around at least 1000 miles.(I traveled from northern VA back to central TX in 1988 and it only took me 3 days!)
It took my ancestors almost a year to make it from MS to central TX in 1873, although they did have to stop along the way for babies to be born, work and earn some money, etc.
Do you know where in VA your folks were living in 1870 or where in TX they ended up?That would be helpful information to have and might generate more reponses from folks associated with your Lambert family line.
