    I am looking for knowledge about the parents, siblings and first wife of Frank John Lambert, also known as Jean Baptiste Lambert.  His ancestors were French-Canadian as you may have guessed.  He was born on August 28, 1852 in Skowhegan, Somerset county, Maine.  He was married twice, his second wife’s name was Agnes Taylor.  They were married on August 20, 1895 in Howard, Kansas.  On the marriage application he was listed as J. B. and gave Logan,Oklahoma as his address.  Their children’s names were Opie Reed Lambert, born in 1895 and Olin Harry Lambert (my father) born in 1897.  They lived in Blandinsville and Lewistown, Illinois.  Frank John was a barber.  I know he had children by the first marriage and some of them lived in the Chicago area at one time.  One of the Chicago Lamberts was in the lamp business, I believe.  If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know.  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

    Fly/Melben (Malbon)/Myrick

    I am trying to find information on Elizabeth Fly Myrick, and especially on her parents.  I have the following information written by a descendant of Elizabeth and her husband, Nicholas Dodge.  "There was a family by the name of Melben (Malbon?) who lived on the Skowhegan, and one of the girls married a man named Fly[n].  He went to Boston to get a housekeeping outfit and was never heard of again.  Some thought he met with foul play.  In the course of time his wife gave birth to a girl baby and after a few years she married a man named Myrick.  The baby girl had been named Elizabeth and went by the name of Elizabeth Myrick, although she was no blood relation to the Myricks.  The Elizabeth Fly[n] Myrick was Nicholas Dodge's second wife and to them were born seven children..."

    Elizabeth was born about 1767 and died 3/8/1841.  Elizabeth married Nicholas after 1781 but before 1785.  I believe they lived in or around Burnham, ME as that is where Nicholas died in 1827.

    As I am from the other side of the continent, and am quite unfamiliar with Maine geography, I'm hopeful that "the Skowhegan" is in your vicinity.  Any information will be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    We need proof that Edmond Adams was the son of Abraham Adams from Groton MA.  This information was found on an early DAR application but, proof documents have not been located.  We know that Abraham married Hannah Clark in 1793 in Canann, Me.  We know that he owned land there in 1802/3.  We know Edmond was born in 1804 in Skowhegan Me.  We know that Abraham is buried in Southside Cemetary in Skowhegan.  We just need a proof document that he is the father of Edmond.  Do you have any information on Abraham and Edmond Adams?  We really appreciate your help.
