Excerpt from "History of Greene County, Ohio: its people, industries and ...", Volume 1, Michael A. Broadstone, pg. 244:

The early settlers of Sugarcreek Township were not without their military heroes; the most important one of whom was Capt Nathan Lamme. He was an officer of the Virginian soldiery of the Revolutionary War and he was entitled to four thousand acres of land of the military reservation.

He came to Greene County, Ohio in 1797 and located land in sections 33 and 27 township 3 range 6 northeast of Bellbrook. He erected his homely pioneer cabin north of the Washington Mill.

During the Revolution he was present at the battle of Point Pleasant having volunteered for the Dunmore expedition in 1774, and after the outbreak of hostilities between the colonies and England, he espoused the patriot cause and wore a continental uniform for eight years. When Greene County was organized he was elected sheriff which office he held for only three months as he was compelled to resign to look after his large land interests.

He spent the rest of his life in Sugar Creek Township his death occurring in 1834.

One of Captain Lamme's sons was David Lamme who was only six years of age when he came with his father to Greene County. He [David] became a soldier in the War of 1812 serving first as a volunteer under Capt Robert McClelland. Later he joined General Harrison whom he followed throughout the war. Because of his gallantry at the battle of Lundy's Lane he was promoted to the rank of captain.
