June 13,1883 Conn Examiner; Mrs. Nancy A. Lambert, nee Lee, an old and estimable lady of Everton departed this life June 5, 1883, aged 94 years, 3 months and 22 days. About one year ago she had stroke of paralysis from which she never recovered. She was born in Pennsylvania, February 14, 1789. When but a small child her parents moved with her to the State of Kentucky,where they lived about ten years amid those trying scenes of frontier life. Then they removed to the State of Ohio, settled on the Miami river three miles below the present site of the city of Hamilton. From thence they removed to Green county, near Fairfield. At the age of eighteen years, by the death of her mother, she was left without the care and guidance of the best of all earthly friends. At the age of 24 she became the wife of John Lambert who was ten years her senior begin born January 10, 1779. They were both born and lived during the lifetime of and were old enough to remember General George Washington, the father of our country. She began housekeeping near Yellow Springs, Clark county, Ohio. six months after, her husband was drafted for the armies of 1812 and 1815. After six months' service in the army he procurred a substitute and returned home at the death of her father. After a term of years they came to Indiana and settled six miles from Brookville on Templeton's Creek, remaining there some three years, when they removed to Fayette county, near Everton, in about the year 1823, where they lived the remainder of their lives. The place was then called Lawsburg and contained but two or three houses. A family of ten children was born unto them, some in Ohio and some in Indiana, seven of whom are still living. Her posterity consisits of 10 children, 45 grandchildren, 36 of whom are living, 81 or more great grandchildren. She became a widow the lst day of January, 1863, living in her widowhood until death. She was born on Valentine's day and died on her youngest son's birthday a somewhat strange coincidence. She embraced the Christian religion in her early girlhood; became a member of the Methodist church, afterwords identified with the United Brethren church, a member of which she remained during the rest of her natural life. She was a devout Christian, an affectionate wife, and a loving mother. She died as she had lived in full faith of a blessed immortality, and in the fullness of her years she was gathered to that land above, that "home not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens."
