On 20 September 1847 Scipio and Mariah Philips were united in marriage in Gallatin, Illinois. 
Information gleaned from census records:
In 1850 Scipio was a carpenter with real estate valued at $400., living in the North Fork district of Gallatin, Illinois. Members of his household are:
Scipio A Lamb 39
Mariah Lamb 44
Anne Lamb 17
William Lamb 14
James M Lamb 13
Joseph Lamb 10
Nathan Lamb 10
Mary Lamb 7
In 1860 the family are living in the New Market Post Office district of Gallatin County. It is uncertain whether or not this is the exact same location as 1850, however. He was now a farmer. We learn for certain that Joseph and Nathan were twins, and Elizabeth, who would have been 28, is no longer in the home. There is, however, someone named John Campbell, 30 years old, who is living with them. Perhaps he was a farm hand.
Scipio married Nancy E. Kimbrow in 1865, in Gallatin, Illinois. 
By 1870 Scipio was a grocer living in Township 8 Range 8, Gallatin, Illinois. He owns real estate valued at $2500, and his personal property is valued at $500. There is no comment on his marital status. Elizabeth is back in the home and listed as the housekeeper. Mariah is no longer there. There are others bearing the Lamb surname, presumably children of Scipio and Mariah:
Scipio Lamb 59
Elisabeth Lamb 40
Caroline Lamb 19
Rachael Lamb 17
Garland Lamb 12
Elbert Lamb 4
Elisabeth Lamb 3
George Lamb 11/12
From the 1880 census we learn that Scipio is now married to Nancy E. Lamb, who has a son from a previous marriage in the home. Scipio is a carpenter once again. We also learn that Scipio's parents were both born in North Carolina. Here are the family members:
Scipis Lamb 70
Nancey E. Lamb 51
Elizabeth Lamb 12
Elbert E. Lamb 10
George C. Lamb 8
Cora L. Lamb 6
Garlard Kimbro 24
