Lamb Family Members

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.
