Notes
a. Note:   Martha was in her father's, James Lamb, will. She was bequeathed $1.00. His will was probated on June 14, 1869. Jesse Bert Wood was told by Mr. Wheeler Jones that Martha Lamb Sharp and her mother are buried just east of Wright Cemetery on the bank of Brush Creek. He said the graves were approximately 250 feet North of the Waterloo Road and west of the creek bank on a level Spot not far from the Creek. I believe Martha was raised around Wright, there were many Lamb names in the 1850 Lauderdale County Census, the area where Adron Sharp and other Sharps had property on brush Creek. Also had a number of lambs living there, and the church was called Lamb's Chapel. Mr. Jones also said Adron Sharp was very good to his slaves. He had a portion of all food set aside for them, but Martha would sell it without his knowledge and threaten the Negroes if they told Adron about it.
