He had lived in this county many years and married and raised his family here; had been a member of the U. B. Church twenty five years and was as a shock of corn, ready to be garnered in his eighty-ninth year. His has been an eventful life." (He and Rachel are bur. in South Cem. - Greens Fork.

Learning who many of the Lambs buried at Sugar Grove Cemetery were has taken much research. Data from Kenneth J Nicholson of Mesa, Arizona, and from Robert Peirce of near Dalton, Ind., has been of immense value. Several descendents of Thomas and Hannah (Lewis) Lamb are interred here (Thomas and Hannah are buried at Williamsburg.) Joseph Lamb and many of his family are also buried at Sugar Grove. Apparently Thomas and Joseph were cousins. Individuals are listed as belonging to the (Thomas family) or the (Joseph family). The possible relationship is charted on the next page, and is a part of a chart by Robert Peirce.

Data from KJN dated 6 Oct. 1984 reads

A Joseph Lamb mar. Lidya Addison in
Randolph Co. N.C. (just south and adjacent to Guilford Co.) 20 Nov. 1806. Samuel Addison, Bondsman (likely father or brother) with E. Mendenhall witness. There were many Lambs but no other Joseph. (I have the same information from Howard P. Addison - Addison Family Researcher. Robert Peirce has her name as Lydia Adamson. FFW)

The 1815 Tax List shows a Joseph Lamb
in Capt. Swaim's District (NW part of Randolph Co., and adjacent to Guilford Co.) he with 95 acres, smallest of 15 Lamb farms. Largest was Albert Lamb with 500 acres.

The 1820 Census of Census of Randolph
Co. N.C. shows Joseph Lamb with 98 acres on Polecat Creek which runs south out of Guilford Co. near Jamestown, value $200. There are 12 Lambs enumerated all on Polecat Creek, highest value $700., lowest $100. Four Lambs did not own land. There was 1 white poll on each farm. Polecat Creek is a tributary of Deep River, Quaker Country. End of quote.

From Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy - North Carolina Center Monthly Meeting - Guilford County - N.C. - page 638:

Lamb 1829-4-18 Joseph and family
granted certificate to Vermillion Monthly Meeting Indiana.

1829-4-18 Lydia wife of Joseph and daus. Esther and Mourning granted certificate to Vermillion M.M. Indiana.

No further data was found in Quaker records.
