ALBERT LAMB DIED FRIDAY-HE WAS CAPTAIN IN THE UNION ARMY
Randolph--Albert Lamb. who for the last week, has been critically ill with pneumonia, died at 2: o'clock on Friday morning in his home on the old road to the center. Mr. Lamb had not been strong for several years.
Albert Lamb was born in Granville in the year 1839, one of four children of David and Esther (Martin) Lamb. When a lad he came to this place with his parents to live, but he afterward went west, and at the breaking out of the Civil War, enlisted in an Illinois Regiment, and went into service as a Lieutenant. Not long after that he was made Captain and remained in the rank 'till his term of service expired. He was wounded in the battle of Peach Tree Creek and was in the hospital for some time.
Following his discharge from the army he went farther west and engaged in work on the Union Pacific Railroad. Fond of traveling, he visited nearly every state in the Union and lived in the west for many years.
More than fifteen years ago he returned to Vermont and came to Randolph, and since that time has been on the old place. Mr. Lamb was married three times, his first wife having been Roxy McDonald, of Woodstock, Ohio, and one son was born to them, who died when quite young, and was buried in the Woodstock cemetery. Later Mr. Lamb married Lucretia Gray, and a daughter, Lena, was the first of this union., and this child, now, Mrs. Bergamo, has been with him in for the last few months, and was with him in his last hours, ministering to his comforts. A third wife was Emma Bliss, who was never known here.
Mr. Lamb was a member of the post, and the U.S. Grant Post of this place will serve at the funeral on Sunday afternoon. Deceased was the last of his family, except for a brother, Frank Lamb, who has been in the west, and may still be alive. Interment will be in the family lot at Southview Cemetery.
