What was the location of John Lambert at his birth, marriage and death? That is, what country, county and city?

John was born in 1770 supposedly in South Carolina? He died in May of 1857 in Tishomingo County Mississippi, (in the yellow creek area) I have found a Record stating that he died in 1851, but i found his grave stone and it also says 1857. I am not sure when he married Nancy Carpenter but i also found a record stating that He married Sarah Fisher inTishomingo County on 17 Sept 1840.

I found this: 

John Lambert, was born about 1770-1771 in Ninety Six District, South Carolina. John moved to Tishomingo County, Miss., after 1837. John married Nancy Carpenter; she was born about 1800 in Tenn. After Nancy’s death, he married Sarah Fisher in Tishomingo County on 17 Sept 1840. In the 1850 U.S. Federal Census, he was living in the Yellow Creek area, three miles northeast of Burnsville. John Lambert allegedly died 15 Mar 1851 in Tishomingo County, Miss.; however, his tombstone shows his date of death as 1857. Although he did not leave a will, there are records of the appraisal and inventory of his estate dated 10 Feb 1851. He left 247 acres, a house, household items, cows, hogs, and farm-related items and equipment. John asked that his property be divided among his seven living children. William L. Lambert; Rebecca Freeze, wife of James Freeze; James Clyde; Josiah; Hickman; Nancy; and Thomas. No mention of a wife was made which apparently means his wife predeceased him. He was buried with many of his descendants and their wives in the O’Possum Trot Cemetery.

Detail

Old Record

Unsure if any of this is correct? it stated "Old Record"?

Those are his Children, I found their graves and head stones on my trip to Mississippi.

Thank you for your Response

Did not find the parents.
Thank you for your effort
I believe John was born near Willtown, S.Carolina, 1770 (an archaeological dig today).  In 1790, Greenville district, S.Carolina census he was 20, married and father of one male child. In 1800 census for S.Carolina he was not present. He was in Indian Territory, McNairy County, Tennessee in 1819-birth of JamesClyde, and 1823-birth of Hickman B. and more, before moving to Mississippi where he married again and produced a son, Tuckberry, and two daughters. I saw a photo of a Marble plaque with John Lambert b.1770 d. 1850-purported to be in Possum trot cemetery...Burnsville, Miss. He was my ggg-grandfather
Thank you Very much. anything and everything that I find is like a Present.

Lambert

Recorded in over forty spelling forms from Lambert, Lambard and Limprecht, to Lambrich, Lambertini and Lemmens, this surname is almost certainly of very early German origins. As a surname it started life in the 12th century, but the derivation is from a pre 5th century personal name. This was 'Landbehrt', composed of the elements "land", meaning territory, and "berht", bright, and whilst the meaning may have been "Bright land", it may not have had a meaning at all! Nethetheless it is one of a group of 'made up' names, apparently extolling the virtues of land ownership, and territorial possession. Whether this was fact or wishful thinking, is not proven. What is known is that St. Lambert, Bishop of Maastricht in about the year 700 a.d, was highly venerated, and a source of the name's popularity. Examples of the early recordings include Gozelinus filius Lamberti of Yorkshire, England,in the famous Domesday Book of 1086, but clearly this name was not hereditary in the sense we know it today, nor was that of Tiddemus filius Lamberti of Hamburg in 1262. Another source of the name can be the Olde English 'Lambhierd', representing the occupation of lamb-herd, the first recorded namebearer being William Lambhyrde, in the 1255 Assize Court Rolls of Essex. Charles Lambert, aged 23 yrs., was an early settler in the New World Colonies, leaving London on the "Expedition" bound for the Barbadoes, in November 1635. The first recorded spelling of the family name anywhere in the world is believed to be that of Richard Lambert, which was dated 1148, in the 'Pipe Rolls' of Hampshire. This was during the reign of King Stephen of England, known as "Count of Blois", 1135 - 1154. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Carpenter
This ancient and widespread name is of early medieval English origin, and is an occupational name for a worker in wood, a "carpenter". The surname derives from the Anglo-Norman French term "carpentier", developed in England after the Conquest of 1066, and deriving from the Late Latin "carpentarius", cartwright, from "carpentum", cart, a word of Gaulish origin. This surname has the rare distinction of retaining its original spelling of the 12th Century into modern English, and is one of a select group of occupational surnames developed from essential and skilled employment during the Middle Ages; other examples are Smith, Farrar, Cartwright, Miller, Tanner, and Tiler. Job-descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the namebearer, and later became hereditary. Early recordings of the name include Ralph Carpenter (1175, Yorkshire), and Hugh le Charpenter (Wiltshire, 1273). William Carpenter, aged 19 yrs., was an early emigrant to the New World Colonies, leaving London on the "Expedition", bound for the Barbadoes in November 1635. One of the earliest Coats of Arms granted to a family of the name depicts two lions, gold, rampant combatant, on a blue shield. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Godwin Carpentar, which was dated 1121, in "Feudal Documents from the Abbey of Bury St. Edmunds", Suffolk, during the reign of King Henry 1, known as "The Lion of Justice", 1100 - 1135. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
