I am looking for knowledge about the parents, siblings, and first wife of Frank John Lambert, also known as Jean Baptiste Lambert. His ancestors are assumed to be Canadian for French. 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.
A Frank John Lambert, born in Skowhegan, son of John Lambert and Mary "Roughoue," married Josephine Bruni 5 June 1895 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin:
The 1900 census shows them living in Chicago:
Here's his death record, which gives his mother's name as "Bessaw":
Could he have been a son of your Frank by his first wife?
I have very limited information, but my great, great grandfather was John Lambert who married Amelia Rouillard in Skowhegan Maine. She died shortly after the birth of her second child. John left his children, Frank born 1872 and George Harvey Lambert (my great grandfather) b. 11 July 1874, in the care of their Grandmother Rouillard. I know nothing more about John, but George came to Chicago and was first a court reported and then an attorney. He married Mary Coghlan in Sturgeon Bay, WI 21 August 1897. They had four children all born in Chicago!
