Lambert, Jacob

Died at his home in this city, Thursday morning, November 22, at 6:55 o'clock, at the ripe old age of 90 years, 4 months and 9 days.

Jacob Lambert, or as he was familiarly known, Father Lambert, was born in Gustra County, Virginia, July 13, 1804. While but a boy he moved with his parent to Licking County, Ohio, where he resided until about twelve years ago, when he came to Newton, where he has since lived. He was one of a family of fourteen brothers and sisters, of whom there are but two living. His fourth wife, who was a Mrs. Cunningham, and four sons, one daughter, ten grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren survive to mourn their loss of a kind husband, good and loving father and grandparent. Father Lambert had been a member of the Methodist Church for eighty years. The funeral services will be held today from the Methodist Church, Rev. Brooks officiating.

Father Lambert was a man of great physical strength and energy. His constitution was so strong that it resisted all attempts of being put under in influence of chloroform or ether, even during the amputation of his arm. He was a good father and good citizen and a man respected by all. "He has trod the path we must all follow; there is another link of friendship broken, yet we cherish a hope that at some future period those broken links may again be united in a blessed hereafter."
