 Hi Debbie,
 The parents of Martha Lamb, born abt. 1810 in Tn., are James Lamb and Margaret ??, married abt. 1809 in Tn.
 James is a brother to my John Lamb Sr. and they are sons of Thomas Lamb Jr. and Sarah ??. James born 25 Nov. 1785. John born 19 Dec. 1779. They are listed in The Quacker Records of Bush River, Union co., S.C. There is probably more children but I don't have them at this time. Thomas moved his family from S.C. to Williamson co., Tn., date of move is unknown. SHARP: Melissa Sharp was the daughter of Rebecca Long and James (Jim) Sharp, they were not married!, Rebecca also had a daughter Forrest/Forest Long, she married a Murphy I think, at least she went by Murphy, of course this could have been her fathers surname, no one seems to know who he was at this time. Rebecca was a daughter of John Long and Sarah ( Sallie) Smith. (Sarah supposedly a descendent of Captain John Smith of Virginia- no research done here). John Long is a brother to my Francis Marion Long and they are sons of Mikle/Michael Long and Nancy Webb, Nancy is a d/o John Webb and Elizabeth Thomas. Let me know when you get home and I will send what I have on the LONGS and LAMBS, which is quite a lot. Hoping to hear from you soon.Sharon [Long]....
