Bio and Links
I always been interested in cemeteries, and family history. My work on my family history started in 1978. I worked most of my life in manufacturing, starting in Production and eventually ending in Quality Assurance. I retired in 2010, after working for 40 years and doing a tour in the United States Air Force, during the Vietnam War. Enjoy checking out cemeteries and working on my family history. On father's side is: Banister, Bracken, Burke, Mappin, Rogers, Williams. On my mother's side there are Peterson, Johnson, Johannesson, Petersdotter, Sill, Swanson, Edwards, Holmes, Schumacher, and Sundlop, just to mention a few. These families are a mixture of Irish and Swedish, which makes for some interesting times. I was inducted into the "Sons of the Amercian Revolution" in May 2012.

RE: Anthony and Mary Ausbury
Thank you for the Lamb obituaries. I appreciate your sending them. For the most part they will help in identifying the "other" Lambs of McDonough Co. As it happens only Elizabeth Lamb who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Antony Ausbury, is apart of the family that I trace. I maintain a file on other Lambs in that county so those obits have a place to be an informational resource in the future.

I am working on a display for the Library in observation of Family History Month in October. Seems one thing or the other has delayed my research. Previously I did this with another member of our genealogical society but she is now busy being Regent for the local DAR chapter.

Many thanks,

RE: Anthony and Mary Ausbury
Your last e-mail attachment was for five Ausbury obituaries, not Lamb obits. Looking forward to seeing the Lamb obits.

RE: Anthony and Mary Ausbury
Thank you for the various items that you sent I appreciate them. Have been sidetracked so I haven't yet reviewed everything. I'll respond better when everything has been reviewed.

I am work on the Lamb genealogy so my interest is in Anthony W. Ausbury and Mary Ellen Lamb, their family, and descendants.

Many thanks,

RE: Anthony and Mary Ausbury
Sounds like a great project. I would be interested to see the article.

I added to Find A Grave an infant daughter of Anthony W. and Mary Ellen (Lamb) Ausbury.

Eleanor Barclay listed on her family group sheet two additional infants who died young. No names were included. I am still reviewing those.

RE: Thomas Adcock genealogy
Thanks, I saw the plot maps on the memorials. I edited the sort order so the gravestones would show at the top.

Anthony and Mary Ausbury
Thank you so much for the various items that you shared. I appreciate them and look forward to more completely reviewing each one and will probably have questions following that review.

The family group sheet for Thomas Glen Ausbury 1809-1887 has an arrow pointing to his son, Isaac Newton Ausbury. Is Isaac in your lineage?

Enclosed is a family group sheet for Anthony W. Ausbury and Mary Ellen Lamb prepared by Elizabeth (Taylor) Barclay. She died a number of years ago.

This has been a busy time. This morning I printed the attachments that you sent and am just now, at the end of the day, having the opportunity to respond.


Jay G. Lamb

PS For some reason my attempts to respond to your "reply-to" address were rejected. So I am responding via I'll try sending the family group sheet later.

Thank you for writing and for your offer of assistance. I would appreciate if you could scan and send to me the obituaries for Anthony and Mary. Those would really help. You can send them to:

Thank you,

I do not know if he served our country. I am sorry!

I suggest you request a photo of his gravestone and that might tell the tale.
