My notes and thoughts, photos and documents about my genealogical research.

I can't post a picture and say absolutely nothing. Here is a scan from a tintype of my 3 great grandfather William Odle Dobson Lamb born 23 March 1819 in Kentucky, died 8 September 1872 in Shelbyville, Shelby Co. Illinois. He usually used his initials W. O. D. Lamb so my cousin and I affectionately called him 'Wod' as we collaborated on research for the Lamb family.
Some of my Lamb ancestors were 'black sheep' (pun intended) and tomorrow I'll post a transcription of one of the court documents that proves it!
