      WM. THORNBER LAMBERT
      Feb. 24, 1847 - Nov. 22, 1922

      William Thornber Lambert was born In Rock Creek township, Hancock county. He attended public school and worked for the neighbors when not needed at home. On December 9, 1872, he was married to alice Jane Pilkington. To this union were born five daughters and three sons, all excepting one being born in the plain little home within a quarter of a mile of his parental home.

      Within one-eighth of a mile of this little home the L.D.S. church was erected in 1875, of which he became a member at an early age. Although he always farmed as a farm hand, tenant, land owner and retired farmer, yet a very large part of his thought and effort were spent in serving through this little church where he was ordained an elder.

      His kindly, sympathetic disposition is indicted by his being called to officiate at the last rites of sixty-six of his friends or members of his friends' families. Not only in a religious capacity did he serve his fellows, but also as a school director, road commissioner and singing school teacher.

      His ability to sing and be happy at the close of a long day and his honest and clean mindedness were outstanding.

      After the death of his first wife, November 27, 1913, he married Mary Pilkington Webber, who was the youngest sister of his first wife.
