This is tree is taken from the Lambert genealogy written by Verna P. Bracey. This is meant as a stepping off tool for others looking into the Lambert family. The genealogy wasn't footnoted so I can't guarantee any of the information here. But as I research the Lamberts I will make changes wherever needed.

GEORGE DAWSON LAMBERT, son of Baxter and Martha E. (Jones) Lambert, was born 11 July 1831 and died Monday, 14 April 1902. He married Parthenia Jones, daughter of Zachariah and Permelia (Rottenberry) Jones, on Wednesday, 20 October 1869. Parthenia (Jones) Lambert was born 16 August 1830, and died 7 February 1902. They had one child:

– Pattie Lambert, b. 10 October 1871; d. 9 July 1950; m. Altamont Hart Bracey

George Lambert was born in the vicinity of St. Tammany, in a house which later burned, but was the same property where he build in 1867, south of the Nellie Jones Road. He built the house by himself, even making the brick in the chimney stem. (The rest of the chimney is rock.) He also made some furniture.

He was overseer on various plantations prior to the Civil War: first for Mrs. Caroline King next for John H. Taylor at Townsville, N.C.; and lastly for Col. William Baskerville, Lombardy Grove. At Caroline King’s he would ask for the “batter bread”. She would say, “It’s egg bread.” He would reply, “I’ll call it egg bread when you put and egg in it.”

He said that Col. Baskerville, not realizing the slaves needed more food for the amount of work they did, did not allot enough food for them. As overseer, he told them to take a sheep and kill it for food. They were not allowed to have guns, so they would take a plank out of a bridge, herd the sheep, and run them across the bridge. One or two slaves would be under the bridge. They would put their hands through the place where the plank had been removed abnd grab a sheep by the foot and pull it down.

At the outbreak of the Civil War, he joined the Confederate Army. He was at the Battle of Gettysburg. He didn’t expect to live throught it. He made up his mind, if he did live, he’d never leave home again. He was impressed by the farming in Pennsylvania. After the war, he built his barn, a log barn, on the Pennsylvanias principle of having an overhanging second storey. At the close of the war, he walked home from Appamattox. He then worked as overseer for Col. Baskerville for about another two years.

His sister, Annie, kept house for him until he married Parthenia Jones in 1869.

He was considerate of animals, he was a veterinarean. He was a strictly honest man, and said the blessing at every meal. He would always sew his own buttons on his clothes and do other minor mending, which fretted Parthenia, because she herself was industrious and would have done it for him. Apparently he was not an easy man to live with, for Parthenia said he was “just about perfect if he wasn’t spo rotten mean”. Jane Burton, who nicknamed many people, gave him the name “Hard”.

George Lambert was adminisatrator of both his father’s estate in 1866, and his monther’s in 1867.

After the death of his wife, Parthenia, George Lambert moved to the home of his son-in-law, A. H. Bracey, where he lived until he died.
