Biography of Leonard Lamberson

The record of migrations and other relevant notes from the cited source: after the Revolutionary War, Christina's brother John Fite had a warrant for 200 acres of land in Northampton Co., PA. Also, Christina's brother Leonard moved to the same place, Northampton County, PA, in 1785. This is when the Lambersons also apparently lived there. Catharine Fite, his sister-in-law give declarations in files for Mary Rumfelt, John Titman, and Peter Titman's Revolutionary Pension applications. She further states that the families moved to North Carolina in 1790. Some of the Fite records say 1787, but sometime in this period the Fite's, Rumfelt's, Titman's, and most likely the Lamberson's all moved into Lincoln County, North Carolina from Sussex County, New Jersey. See Catharine Fite's page for copies of these declarations.

This source states that Christina moved from Greenwich Twp., Sussex Co., NJ to North Carolina with her other brothers and sisters in 1787 and thence to TN in 1796.

There is clearly some discrepancy, but it is worthwhile to note the connection to North Carolina which is not borne out in other records or traditions that I have heard of.

  2. Handley Family Research, This source perpetuates the mistransctription of the year of death as 1833. Census records further corroborate the absence of Lawrence Lamberson in the 1830 census.
  3. Lawrence Lamberson Revolutionary Pension File W8020, Record Type: Lawrence Lamberson Revolutionary Pension Fil. (U. S. National Archives, Washington, D.C.), The Revolutionary War pension records clearly indicate the year of death as 1822 upon close examination.

  7. 7.0 7.1 The census record for 1830 for Lawrence Lamberson could not be found. This would indicate that the death date for him found in the Revolutionary Pension of 1833 is probably correct. It also appears that Christina Lamberson could be living with her son, Leonard Lamberson in 1830.
