Also found with the above, an envelope addressed to Mr. Watson J. Lamb, Wolcott, Wayne Co., N.Y., containing a New Year's card from the "Y.P.S.C.E." of the First Congregational Church, Bay City, Mich., 1890, which is in Bay County, Michigan. This card thanks him for his interest in the church's meetings during the past year. The 1880 census of Huron, Wayne County, shows Watson J. Lamb, age 26, with wife Olive, age 20, and son Rutherford H., age 3. Residing with them were mother-in-law Emerilla McQueen, age 64, sister-in-law Mary A. Graham, age 32, Harry Graham, age 5 b. IL, and Adelbert Graham, 6 months old. LDS records show Watson Lamb, b. 1854, son of Oliver Lamb and Jennie, as well as his sister Emeline, b. 1852, both "Of Tyre, Seneca, New York." The Evergreen Cemetery listings, Town of Huron, show several McQueens, with Elizabeth Lamb buried next to them.

[Rutherford H. Lamb is listed in the 1920 census index, age 42, residing in the Town of Butler, and in the 1930 census index, age 53, living in the Town of Cortland, Cortland County. Olive A. Lamb is listed in the 1920 census index, age 59, residing in Huron, and in the 1930 census index, age 70, residing in Huron as mother-in-law in someone's household. Further research needs to be done by actually looking at the census microfilm.

The SSDI shows a Hazel A. Lamb b. 1905, d. Ithaca 2001, which city is about a 10 minute drive from where all of these items were found (obviously from an estate), and a bit southwest of Cortland. The 1930 census index of Ithaca shows a Hazel A. Lamb, age 24, b. 1905 residing as a lodger. The Hazel who owned the memories book might be the daughter of Rutherford H. Lamb, son of Watson J. and Olive Lamb. If you have any information about the owner of the memories book, please contact the site coordinators.]
