Chester Lamb was married to Catharine Malory. Catharine was born about 1819 in Ireland and died on 6 April, 1875. I haven’t been able to find where they were married or when she emigrated, but it appears that she came to the United States as a child. Chester & Catharine had eight children that I have found.
- Charles Lamb, 1838-1878
- William George Lamb, 1842-1898
- Henry C. Lamb, 1844-1893
- Caroline Lamb Sweet, 1845-1927
- Martha Lamb, 1845-1846
- Chester Lamb, Jr., 1856-1909
- Elmira M. Lamb Glaze, 1857-1927
- Emily Lamb, 1860-1925
All children were buried with Chester & Catharine in the Lamb plot at Woodlawn Cemetery except two, William George & Martha.
