James Lamb (1746-1824) James Lamb was born 16 November 1746 and died 31 May 1824 near Lancaster, Fairfield County, Ohio. He was buried at the Turkey Run Cemetery, Baptist Churchyard. He married Ann and they had 10 children.

Ann Lamb married a second time Joseph Hilliards (98). Possibly James Lamb managed the 156 acres in Tyrone township [Perry County, Pennsylvania] which his father Samuel, Sr. had purchased in 1766 from Jonas Bedford. The land was on Shermans Creek...

James and Ann Lamb had ten children. We know the name of only one daughter, Margaret, who was born 9 October 1775, and married James Long and then Joseph Hilliards.
