Note: On page 23, Styles gives the children of Henry and Elizabeth Lamb in order of their marriages, stating that he was unable to locate any of their birth records. Then, on page 34, he states "Joseph Lamb was born in 1735 in Nansemond County, VA." Because of this conflict, I have mark the date as uncertain.
Date: 23 Jul 1761
Place: New Garden MH, Guilford County, North Carolina
Joseph provided patriotic service during the American Revolution.
"Joseph appears in the Daughters of the American Revolution Patriots Index for Patriotic Service, indicating he provided a non-military service, such as a provider of goods or services, also noting his marriage to Frances Beeson.
Last Will and Testament of Joseph Lamb, son of Henry
"I Joseph Lamb of Randolph County & State of North Carolina being in a weak state of health, at present, but of a sound mind & memory, thanks be given to the Lord for the Same, and Calling to mind that it is appointed for all men once to die, Do ordain and make this my Last Will and Testament in the manner and form following: first that all my Just Debts & funeral charges be paid out of my Estate by my Executor hereafter to be named, it is my will that my Son Richard Lamb shall have the plantation whereon we now Live with all the appurtenances thereto Belonging on this side the Creek, and my son Gabriel to have all on the west side the creek. It's a plantation on which he now lives. the creek is to be the line between them. It is my will that my Son Richard shall have the waggon & geers, it is my will that my Sons Henry, Benjamin, & two Daughters Welmet & Edith have five Shillings each, and the Remainder of my property to be equally Divided between my other Children, Benjamin, Nathan, Charity, Caleb, Albert, Richard, & Gabriel."
"And lastly I ordain Nathan Lamb & Richard Lamb my Executors to this my Last Will & testament this twenty eighth day of the twelfth month 1813, pronounced in the presence of David Reynolds, William Chamness, William Beeson. Signed Joseph Lamb."
Joseph's will was proven November 1820 term, Randolph County Court of Pleas & Quarter sessions.
"The executor of this will was proven in open court by William Chamness one of the Subscribing witnesses thereto & ordered to be recorded." William Chamness was the husband of Joseph's grand daughter Edith Lamb, daughter of Nathan. The original will is in the N.C. State Archives at Raleigh.
He did not name his wife Frances in his will, so it may be presumed that she predeceased him.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Joseph by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Joseph:
