      LDS Biographical Encyclopedia, vol. 4:

      LAMBERT, Ephraim, first counselor in the Roosevelt Stake presidency, Utah, from 1920 to 1930+, was born 4 Nov 1858 in Salt Lake City, Utah, a son of John LAMBERT and Elina H. LARSEN. He was baptized in 1867, chosen as first counselor June 26, 1920, and was set apart by Rudger Clawson.

      Encyclopedic History of the LDS Church:

      Roosevelt is an outgrowth of the Duchesne Ward, which on Sep 10, 1907, was divided into three divisions to be known as the Roosevelt, the Indian Bench and the Hayden branches. Bishop Ephraim Lambert of the Duchesne Ward was given jurisdiction over the Roosevelt District. On Aug. 20, 1908, the Duchesne Ward was reorganized, Bishop Lambert being released as Bishop and Daniel [sic] Lambert appointed to preside as Bishop of the Roosevelt Ward, which embraced much of the territory formerly included in the Duchesne Ward. In 1911 Bishop Daniel [sic] Lambert was succeeded by Paul Soren Hansen, who in 1914 was succeeded by Joseph Heber Lambert...

      Woodrow Branch:

      In 1874 Thomas P. White and family took up some land on Bench Creek, about two miles southeast of Woodland, and soon afterwards other settlers took up land in the district on both sides of Provo River, and for several years the settlement was know as Bench Creek in Wasatch County. Under this name a branch was organized in 1877, with John T. Moon as presiding Elder. On July 25, 1881, the Woodland Ward was organized with Henry Moon as Bishop. Bishop Henry Moon was succeeded in 1885 by his son, John T. Moon, who was succeeded in 1891 by Ephraim Lambert, who was succeeded in May, 1906, by Thomas A. White, who was succeded in August 1906 by Emanual B. Murphy...

      Ephraim Lambert Celebrates 81st Birthday Anniversary
      Long Active Civic and Church Leader Honored Sunday
      Ephraim Lambert who celebrated his 81st birthday anniversary Saturday was honored at a family dinner Sunday given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Darrell Lambert. The occasion called to mind the long and useful career of Mr. Lambert who has spent an entire lifetime in the service of his church and his community. Although time has slowed down his activity, Mr. Lambert is still alert and keen.
      Born in Salt Lake city November 5, 1858, Ephraim spent his early life in Kamas and Wasatch county where his family moved soon after his birth. In Kamas he was active in church work having served as the first president of the Kamas ward M.I.A. He also served as second counselor and bishop of the Woodland ward, near Kamas, for over fifteen years before coming to the Uintah basin.

      Visits Uintah Basin
      He visited the Uintah basin for the first time in 1905 at the opening of the reservation and returned here to live in 1907 where he engaged in farming and lumbering near the present site of Roosevelt.
      He was a leader in the development of this section. He was chairman of the committee appointed to establish the county line between Duchesne and Wasatch counties and was instrumental in locating the line to the west making Duchesne the larger county. He was also instrumental in locating the county high school at Roosevelt. Among other responsibilities he served as the president of the Dry Gulch Irrigation company, was a stockholder in the Roosevelt Standard when it was first established, served as Duchesne county tax assessor and president of a general merchandising store in Roosevelt.

      Church Activities
      In 1906 Mr. Lambert was made bishop of the Uintah basin L.D.S. area and in 1910 when the Duchesne stake was organized with William H. Smart as president, Mr. Lambert was appointed first counselor in the stake presidency. When the Roosevelt stake was organized he continued to serve as first counselor in the Roosevelt stake presidency, serving the Duchesne and Roosevelt stakes in this capacity for over 24 years. Mr. Lambert was later made a patriarch of the church.
      He married Agnes Michie in Wasatch county and to them were born nine children, five of whom are living. They are Darrell Lambert, Clarence Lambert and Mrs. May L. Hoyt of Roosevelt, Clyde Lambert of Altonah and Glen Lambert of Vernal. Mrs. Lambert died several years ago and in 1930 Mr. Lambert married Lula Ball. All of his sons and daughters and a number of grandchildren were present at the dinner in his honor Sunday.

      Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church, vol D:

      DUCHESNE STAKE OF ZION consists of Latter-day Saints residing in the west part of Duchesne County, Utah, extending north to the summit of the Uintah Mountains, east to the Roosevelt Stake, south to the so-called Bad Land Cliffs, and west to the boundary line between Duchesne and Wasatch counties. The headquarters of the stake in 1930 were at Mount Emmons, and the stake consisted of the following wards: Altonah, Arcadia, Bluebell, Boneta, Duchesne, Midview, Mount Emmons, Mountain Home, Redcliff, Strawberry, Tabiona, Talmage and Upalco. The inhabitants within the limits of the stake are mostly engaged in farming and stock raising. Some of the lands in that part of Utah are fertile, though the surface of the [p200] country is somewhat broken or rolling; the altitude varies from 4,000 to 7,000 feet.
      Most of the country now included in the Duchesne Stake constituted a part of the Uintah Indian Reservation until 1905, which accounts for the fact that it was not settled before, or until, at least a part of it was thrown open for white settlers, but the Indians were given the privilege of homesteading or claiming the best sections of land. When the whites, mostly Latter-day Saints, commenced to make homes on what had formerly been the Indian Reservation, they belonged to the Uintah Stake of Zion, but at a stake conference held at Vernal, Sept. 14, 1910, the Uintah Stake was divided and the west part, or the Indian Reservation, was organized as the Duchesne Stake. William H. Smart, who had presided over the Eastern States Mission, was chosen as president of the Duchesne Stake, with Ephraim Lambert as his first, and Joseph H. Hardy as second counselor; William H. Gagon was chosen as stake clerk. At the time of its organization the Duchesne Stake consisted of the following bishop's wards and branches: Boneta, Hayden, Roosevelt, Tabiona and Theodore.
      At a stake conference held June 27, 1920, the Duchesne Stake of Zion was divided and the eastern part of the same, containing Alterra, Bennett, Cedar View, Hayden, Ioka, Myton, Neola, Randlett and Roosevelt, were organized as the Roosevelt Stake of Zion, with William H. Smart, formerly president of the Duchesne Stake, as president. The wards of Altonah, Arcadia, Bluebell, Boneta, Duchesne, Midview, Mount Emmons, Mountain Home, Redcliff, Strawberry, Tabiona, Talmage, Upalco and Utahn were retained in the Duchesne Stake, and embraced the west part of the Uintah Basin. Owen Bennion was chosen as president of the diminished Duchesne Stake, with George V. Billings (Bishop of the Duchesne Ward) as first, and Ira B. Cannon (Bishop of the Mt. Emmons Ward) as second counselor.
      In the organization of the new stake the northern, western, and southern stake lines remained the same as before, but the east line running north and south separating the Duchesne Stake from the Roosevelt Stake was established at the so-called Dry Gulch, about five miles east of Bluebell Ward, part of the way running southeast toward Lake Fork River. In the south part of the stake the east boundary line follows the course of Lake Fork River until the point where that river empties into the Duchesne River, thence the boundary line runs due south until it connects with the southern line running east and west.
      Following is a list of the presidents, counselors and stake clerks of the Duchesne Stake: Presidents: William H. Smart, 1910-1920, and Owen Bennion, 1920-1930. First counselors: Ephraim Lambert, 1910-1916; Paul S. Hanson 1916-1920, and George V. Billings, 1920-1930. Second counselors: Joseph H. Hardy, 1910-1918; Owen Bennion, 1918-1920, and Ira B. Cannon, 1920-1930. Stake clerks: William H. Gagon, 1910-1912; Ernest H. Burgess, 1912-1914; Harden Bennion, 1914-1916; Joseph H. Hardy, 1916-1917; Douglas M.. Todd, jun., 1917-1920; Leroy W. Rust, 1920-1930, and F. Earl Case, 1930. The Church membership of the Duchesne Stake Dec. 31, 1930, was 3,215, including 803 children.
