Notes for THOMAS LAMB:

Thomas Lamb (1690) was born about 1690 in Cheshire, England, and migrated to North America. His son, Thomas Lamb (1721), was born about 1721 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Thomas Lamb (1721) married Alice Longshore, daughter of Euclidis Longshore and Alice Stackhouse. The Lamb, Longshore, and Stackhouse families were members of the Society of Friends, aka Quakers.

Attached is a listing from the genealogy of three generations of Lamb, beginning with Thomas Lamb (1690). This information was compiled from several sources, but includes original research.

George Bush, ex-President, is a descendant of Thomas Stackhouse, as are we Lamb cousins. Much of this information was researched for the Presidential genealogy. The Bush genealogists have traced the Stackhouse line to Charlemagne.

Thomas Lamb (1721) and Alice Longshore married March 16, 1743/44 in Middletown MM, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The tombstone inscription of their first child, Thomas Lamb (1743) indicates he was born in 1743 and died in March 1816 at age 73 years. It is possible that the tombstone dates were misread and Thomas was born in 1745. The second child, William, was born about 1750, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Thomas Lamb (1721) and Alice, and children were received on certificate at the Fairfax MM, Fairfax County, Virginia, on June 29, 1754, from Middletown, MM, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

The birth date for Longshore of 1751-1788 would mean that he could have been born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, before the relocation, on or in Fairfax County, Virginia, after the relocation. We prefer a birth date of 1747-1755 in Fairfax MM, Virginia.

The children of Thomas Lamb (1751 and Alice Longshore are listed. Thomas Lamb (1743) was disowned by the Fairfax MM, Virginia, on May 29, 1766, for an indiscretion with a woman. As often happened among the Quakers, a disowned family could apply for membership to another Monthly Meeting. On June 28, 1766, Thomas Lamb (1721), Alice and the six youngest children were granted a certificate from the Fairfax MM, to go to the Wateree MM, Kershaw County, South Carolina. Thomas (1721) and Alice had nine children named in his will. As Thomas (1743) had been disowned, Margaret was born in 1766, and Phoebe was born in 1768, the six children who relocated to South Carolina were William, Longshore, Alice, Sarah, Esther, and John.

Notes for LONGSHORE LAMB:

Longshore Lamb of South Carolina:

In 1766, Longshore Lamb, a young boy of about 11 years of age, arrived in South Carolina with his parents and siblings. The Quaker records indicate Thomas Lamb (1721), Alice, Longshore Lamb, and their six youngest children were granted a certificate to join Wateree MM, Kershaw County, South Carolina. This information is consistent with the 1790 census for South Carolina.

The Bush River MM, Newberry County, South Carolina, disowned Longshore Lamb on October 30, 1779, for marrying a person who was not a Quaker. A deed dated October 7, 1807, and recorded in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, indicates Longshore Lamb married Sally in 1779. Longshore was about age 23-25 years when he married. Longshore Lamb served on a jury in south Carolina in 1796. Longshore Lamb purchased 163 acres on Frenchman's Creek of the Enoree River in Union County, South Carolina. The will of Richard Chesney of Spartanburg, County, South Carolina, refers to land in North Carolina once owned by Longshore Lamb. Longshore Lamb served under Colonel Brandon during the Revolutionary War and was present at the fall of Charleston in 1780. This was another reason the Quakers disowned Longshore Lamb.

We know little about Sarah, except that she was born about 1758-1763.

Longshore Lamb of Caldwell County, Kentucky

William F. Medlin "Quaker Families of South Carolina and Georgia" Ben Franklin Press, Page 31

"As the large plantation economy based on slavery spread over the Piedmont, Friends were increasingly confronted with the stark reality of just how brutal slavery really was. At estate sales, Friends saw husbands sold away from their wives and little children separated from their mothers. The state made it illegal to teach a slave to read the Bible, and finally even made it illegal to free one's own slaves. Even slaves which had been previously freed by Quakers were frequently seized and sold back into slavery. It became increasingly clear to Friends that the climate of slavery and greed dominating South Carolina and Georgia were totally incompatible with Christianity. There was no way a Quaker could live there and be faithful.

Between 1799 and 1830, the overwhelming majority of Quakers left South Carolina and Georgia for territory where they could rear their children free from the influence of slavery. The exodus began in 1799 when a few Friends left Georgia for the Miami Valley of Ohio. In 1801, Friends began leaving Bush River for the same area. (A few Bush River Quakers had removed much earlier to Tennessee, where slavery had much less influence than in other Southern states.) By 1810 that once large Meeting was decimated. Cane Creek Meeting in Union County removed almost as one body to Ohio, forming up there Caesar's Creek Meeting a few miles from the present city of Wilmington. After 1822, Charleston was the only Monthly Meeting left in either South Carolina or Georgia.

Mary Polly Lamb married William Crow in South Carolina. members of these families also were involved in land transactions together. The Longshore Lamb and William Crow families moved to Caldwell County, Kentucky, about the same time and the intermarrying continued in Kentucky.

Part of the Longshore Lamb family settled in Williamson County, Tennessee, and part continued on to Caldwell County, Kentucky. Both of these locations lay along a western route taken by Quakers migrating from south Carolina and Georgia to Indiana and Ohio. There is ample documentation to prove that the Longshore Lamb family of Caldwell County, Kentucky and the Lamb families of Williamson County, Tennessee, are descendants of Longshore Lamb of South Carolina.

Longshore Lamb arrived in Caldwell County, Kentucky about 1808-1809. About 1911, William and Mary Crow arrived in Caldwell County, Kentucky, from District 96, Spartanburg County, South Carolina. September 3, 1810, Sally Lamb in Caldwell County, Kentucky, signed a document renouncing dower rights tot the property Longshore Lamb had sold in South Carolina in 1807. On November 8, 1813, Mary Crow, in Caldwell County, Kentucky, assigned Power of Attorney to William Crow to collect debts owed her in South Carlina. This power of attorney was witnessed by Longshore Lamb. On July 17, 1818, William Crow, Longshore Lamb, and Moses Clayton were in the service of the court to settle an estate in Caldwell County, Kentucky. On September 3, 1810, Longshore Lamb gave consent for Peggy Lamb to marry James Farmer in Caldwell County, Kentucky. On December 28, 1812, William Crow provided bond for Betsey Reaves to marry Joseph Vaughn in Caldwell County, Kentucky. These events prove that the Longshore Lamb of South Carlina is the same Longshore Lamb of Caldwell County, Kentucky.
