Lamberts-Prince Willam Co before 1830
I'm trying to locate the Lambert's before 1830. I found the family mother-Mary/Polly, son-John, dau-Artemesia & dau-Caroline. There may have been another dau-Amanda who registered in Fauquier Co in the 1830's.
I found the family enumerated as white in 1830 under Polly Lambert in PWC. I've tracked members of the family in PWC & Fauquier counties from 1830-1930. I'm trying to figure out who freed the Lambert's and where they came from. Polly was the first Person in PWC with the surname Lambert. I haven't been able to find any fpoc with the last name Lambert before 1830. Also, I could not find any members of the family in 1840. I thought Mary/Polly had died before 1870 couldn't locate her in the census,one of the librarians in Manassas, Va was helping me. He told me he thought Mary/Polly was listed in the household of Thomas Lathan in PWC 1870.
She's listed as Aggie 85 yrs old. Her 13 year old granddaughter is living there with her. I have no idea why her name is showing as Aggie,there are no death records for her.
Where might I look to find information on this family before 1830?
