Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a fourth generation Montanan. My great-grandfather, Benjamin F. Lamb, was one of the first residents of Miles City, arriving here from his ranch near Medora, North Dakota in September 1877. He took part in the last round-up of bison northeast of Miles City in 1882. Following the round-up, he worked in the slaughterhouse at Fort Keogh and ranched. I maintain his brand, the reverse B L, issued by the Territory of Montana in September of 1885. His son, my grandfather, Benjamin E. Lamb, ranched near Whitehall, Montana. It was on this ranch that I began my love for ranching. Granddad was especially proud of his Hereford cattle. I spent many hours talking to my grandfather about the Lamb family and this was the beginning of my interest in our family history. My father, Lloyd E. Lamb, also worked on the family ranch at Whitehall. He, his dad and grandfather were expert fly fishermen and enjoyed fishing on the Jefferson and Madison rivers near the ranch. A photograph of great-granddad, Ben, fly fishing on the Jefferson River near the ranch, was featured in the Montana Magazine in 1948, and is on permanent display at the Montana Historical Museum in Helena.
My mother's parents, Owen and Annie (Sharkey) Shields, were born in County Down and Donegal Ireland, and I share their Irish heritage by having dual (Irish-U.S.) citizenship. I live in Miles City, Montana with my wife,Therese, and children John, Daniel and Minnie.

RE: B F Lamb a Quaker?
Thanks for your response. Here is a brief synopsis of what I know of the Arizona Lambs. Almost nothing. I gathered from what my Aunt Shirley (Lamb) Carroll said that there was bad blood among the Lambs who located to AZ. I think a brother or scion of B.F. Lamb was an executive of Empire Machinery in Phoenix.

I am the youngest son of Robert W. Lamb who was born ca. 1920 in Laurel MT. (son of Thomas Edward Lamb son of B. F. Lamb). I am 64 and retired. I suffered a head injury 1997 and ended up retiring early.

I landed on the I.T. track in library automation. It was in my supervisory duties that I got smashed up on the road. The thing pretty much restricts my activities.

I married late and we ended up going to Russia in 1996 and adopting 18 month-old Victoria Lamb. She is now going to cosmetology school.

Unfortunately I am the only extant male from Thomas Edward Lamb.

Another son of Thomas Edward was Chuck Lamb. He had a daughter Mary Jane who numbered among her kids Troy Stiles. Troy married Margaret and I gather that they are living in the Laurel Montana area. Troy is an M.D. and is an exceptionally fine man. Whether Margaret is from Montana or why they located there I don't know. They met as doctor and nurse in the Navy. They have a growing family.

Mary Jane is an antiques dealer in the area of Jerome, AZ. That is an old mining town which now functions as an Arizona tourist/hippie mecca and art colony.

I have a publicly accessible Facebook page (Bill Lamb located Phoenix Lookout Mountain) which has been friended by members of Mary Jane's and Shirley Lamb Carroll's clans. There I endeavor not to have a serious bone in my body but the residuals on my brain injury shine through. I have left off my rantings and ravings there.

B F Lamb a Quaker?
B F Lamb b. Iowa 1857 was great Grandfather. His parents moved to Iowa from NC. His parents Alexander Lamb and Eleanor Reynolds were apparently Quakers. B F Lamb m. Mary Egan from RI and she was Irish stock and Catholic. Did he convert? His son Thomas Edward m. Frances Wolfe/Sullivan. They are buried in Catholic Cemetery in Phoenix. And I think B F Lamb is also buried in Catholic Cemetery in MT.

Pictures of Lamb's
It is taking longer than I thought it would on the pictures. I have some that I can scan and email you. We do not know who they are but we do know it is not on the Collie side. Could you email me your email address?

We are still going through the tons of pictures that are at my brother's. There are so many that are not marked who they are so we are trying to see what side of the family they are from. I will let you know when we find some.

Lamb Family
I am not sure if they still have the reunions or not, my Mom passed away in 1999 and we heard from them 2001 and I wrote to them letting them know that she passed away. Since then nothing. As for pictures, I would have to see if Mom has any, if she did they would be with my brother's home. I will be seeing them this weekend and ask him.

RE: Lamb Family Information
Hello Tony,

I am not related to the Lamb family I was just helping out in updating Henry's information. If you would like ownership of his memorial I will be happy transfer it over.

Have a good day,

You mentioned that Benjamin F Lamb was your great grandfather, Sarah Ellen Lamb Ortman was my great grandmother. Years ago I would take my parents to Stuart Iowa to attend the Lamb reunions. My Mom enjoyed them very much.

I have transferred the memorials to you for safe care. I see you are fairly new to Find A Grave. As a suggestion, You should place a bio on your contributor page. It assures us we have turned the memorials over to a caring and active family genealogist.
