    • The Lambert Family News, Vol 2, No. 1, Rock Creek Illinois, Sunday, September 6, 1936:
      GEORGE PERRY LAMBERT
      Dec. 5, 1958 - Mar. 9, 1925
      George Perry Lambert was born in Rock Creek township, Hancock county, Ill., grew to manhood and died on the Lambert homestead. He was married October 28, 1891, to Hattie J. Wilson in Keokuk, Ia. They had three children.

      Quite early in life, he united with the Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints, in which his parents and older brothers and sisters were interested. He served the church as an officer for several years. In later years, he was bishop of the Nauvoo district. His religious life was characterized by strict fidelity to what he believed. He was a firm and steadfast Christian.

      In his community, George Lambert was widely and favorably known. Even those who opposed his religious views, respected the man. He was active in civic affairs, not as a politician but as a good citizen.

      His life summary should not omit his outstanding appreciation for right and justice that were so well developed in his character, nor forget his love for church, home and country. In short, "He was a good man."
