A Lamb Family Reunion will be held on Saturday, Oct. 10, in Princeton, KY. The reunion will begin at 11 a.m. at the Dorr-Orange Cemetery just outside of Princeton where a dedication ceremony will be held and a new tombstone erected for William and Rebecca Lamb. This beautiful granite memorial marker noting William’s service in the War of 1812 was funded by Lamb family members in early 2015.
After the dedication ceremony, family will move to the Princeton Tourist Welcome Center at 201 E. Main St. in Princeton where a hearty, Southern-style lunch will be served. The price for the meal is $25 per person.
Afternoon activities will include a talk by our guest speaker William H. Mulligan, PhD. Dr. Mulligan is a history professor at Murray State University, with interests in early American social and industrial history, Irish immigrant history, and the Civil War. He will talk about what life was like for post-Revolutionary War Lamb ancestors, with a focus on the influence of the War of 1812.
Descendants of Thomas and Alice (Longshore) Lamb are welcome to join our group for a fun afternoon of visiting and fellowship, meeting new family members and sharing genealogical information. Lamb descendants are invited to bring old family photos, family histories, and any family heirlooms they wish to share. Family descendant charts, historical maps and documents will also be on display.
