Subject: Cemetery closest to my one-room country (Lamb) school.
Wow! I just left a message for you in which I said I was looking for information about my first school teacher. That teacher was Mrs. Lucy Williams and the school was Lamb School, just around the corner from this cemetery. I started school there in 1950. Lamb School has been located there since the early 1800's'. My understanding is that the first log school burned around 1900 and was replaced by the frame building which still survives and is located on a farm about one mile south of the cemetery. The land for the school and, I assume, the cemetery was donated by John Lamb, who, I believe, is buried there. You mentioned that the cemetery is also known as the "Campbell" cemetery. The house adjacent to the cemetery was occupied by the Leslie Campbell family in 1951(2) and years thereafter. I went to school there with their daughter, Mary, who now lives in Nashville, TN with her family. What wonderful work you have accomplished with your website. Thank you.
