Richard Clifton Lambert is the 3rd R. Clifton Lambert, his father Ron Lambert is the 2nd, and Grandfather Ralph Lambert is the first.

I was born the 23rd of October 1951 to Ron Lambert and Doris Sthrome.

I grew up in Hartford City, Indiana , graduated from Blackford High School, Hartford City, Indiana. After attending Ball State university for the winter quarter of 1970 he entered the Air Force 23 March 1971. I was in the last lottery for the draft for the Viet Nam War. Though my lottery number would not be called he entered the Air force and spent 20 years 7 months retiring as a Master Sargent Oct. 30, 1991.

Earl Henry Sthrome and Helen Katheryn Sibert were my Grand Parents. Each Christmas their family would gather at their home. I really miss those gatherings. The formal living was where the decorated tree was always placed. The heat was closed off to that room and the French doors shut to keep the live tree healthy.Each year Grandpa would dig up the Christmas tree with its large root ball. The same blue spruce tree would be used until it became too tall. I always felt that tree was special because of the efforts Grandpa put into having the same tree each Christmas. On any visit to their home that I saw that tree I marveled at how special I felt that Grandpa Sthrome would go to all that trouble. It was a wonderful tradition that is sorely missed

I married to Brenda K Green 26 April 1972 [2] Ryan Lambert (the fourth RCL) was born to Richard Lambert and Brenda K Green 22 October 1971 at Landstuhl Army Hospital, Germany. . Our first Christmas together. We were living in Zweibruken Germany. Our landlord’s son showed up at our door with this little scrawny pine tree for us. We had no decorations and very little money to spare to buy them. We had bought a bag of walnuts which was cheaper than a bag of mixed nuts as was our family's tradition back home. We were cleaning some of the nuts and I thought about using the halves with cotton balls in them to glue cutout angels, manger scenes, and such from the Christmas cards that had been sent to us. A loop of yarn added and on the tree they went. We strung popcorn for it also. No lights but a homemade star for the top . As I think of that first Christmas with our baby son and the two of us and it was the most beautiful tree we have ever had. We had some of those first tree ornaments for many years until they all fell apart. I hope every year to find at least one of them when each year the boxes of decorations are brought out and gone through.

A Christian, Husband, Father, Grandfather. USAF MSgt. Photographer Retired; Certified Chef and Baker retired. To this day I love airplanes, photography, baking, and cooking. I have a great appreciation of well made guns both long and hand.

I am a loving and caring person. Believe it or not I have never hated anyone in my life. I hate what people do but not the person. Conservative in my politics. For me abortion is murder! I love my country and will defend it to my end!

I went to school in Oklahoma to learn horse training and shoeing because I always wanted a small hobby farm using horses to farm with. My favorite stories told by my Grandfather Sthrome were of his horses.


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.

Then perhaps adding an explanation of the Civil War info in John Thomas Lambert's bio would be appropriate. Standing alone, it doesn't seem to make sense.

Dick, have you taken any DNA test? It would be great if we could confirm our Lambert relationship with genetic testing. Most of our testing has been done at Family Tree DNA. If you haven't I would recommend the Family Finder and Y-DNA37 tests.

Green-15311 Good work finding obit. Once found its facts need to be used to turn it into a WT style bio text: first=birth statement, parents; 2=Marriage, 3=death, eliminating duplicate info. I have just revised this one for you. Practice will get you there.

Dick I noticed you just added to Green-15303. A text bio needs to be added for her. When working on a profile, a good habit to adopt is to bring the profile up to standard which always includes a bio. Please give it a try on her. Also please give more data on the "family information" source. Thanks

Thank you for noticing the similarities between Cook-9752 and Cooke-2665. I agree to this merge
Hello Dick,

I wanted to thank you for your contributions. They are greatly appreciated.

I see that you may be having a few issues with the Green family and would like to offer some help. I would also like to remind you to not detach a profile from another without citing reasons and sources. When doing this, it can cause an issue in research and take time to put things correctly. I do encourage speaking with those that manage the profile or even starting a G2G post if unsure how to go about finding solid sources.

Let me know where I can help out at and we'll see if we can get everything sorted.

Happy Hunting! Dodie Bartlett, WikiTree Mentor
