  • There is a different Thomas Lamb born in 1745 in North Carolina that was also a Quaker. His wife’s maiden name was Sarah Moore. The maiden name of the wife of our Thomas is not known. There are many online sites and family trees that get the two Thomas’ confused and list the maiden name of our Sarah as Sarah Moore, but they were two different people. The other Thomas Lamb’s family first immigrated to North America in 1630 with the Puritan Great Migration. Later, some of them moved to North Carolina from Massachusetts.
