lived out their lives. I am trying to find out why they were in Polk

of the Moses Lamb who was in Polk Co in 1840? There was also a Rubin
Cates living in Finley Twp Greene County (1850 Census) with his wife
Elizabeth. Was he related to the Martha who m. Elijah Lamb? Lastly,
History of Greene County, p. 911, gives bio of John Lamb who was born in
Maury County TN in 1839. I'm interested to know if there was a
relationship to Elijah Lam (b. NC 1822; lived Maury County 1824-1842).

interesting circumstances here that I would like to see come together.
