All of the following is from a handwritten note in a family Bible. Brackets indicate informatio I added. I may have misread some spelling:

Children of John (b. 19 Dec 1822 OH) and Mary Collins) born 29 Dec 1827 VA/WV) Lamb[all born in Wells County]:

Andrew J. Lamb b. 8 Nov. 1846 m. Ellen Robinson [he went to Missouri at age 19; he died before 1905]
Uris Paul Lamb b. 15 Jan. 1849
Susan Catherine Lamb, b. 3 July 1851
Jacob Lamb b. 10 June 1853
Elisa Jane Lamb b. 30 Aug. 1855 d. 8 Feb. 1864
Sarah Adine Lamb b. 13 Jan. 1859 d. 6 Feb. 1864
Mekala Elen Lamb b. 16 Au. 1861
Emma Lorna Lamb b. 26 Dec. 1863 m. George Alfred Bailey 5 May 1880 [d. 18 Dec. 1905]
Joseph Lamb b. 1866 m. Margaret [d. 1937]

Note: “Joe and Mag Lamb” are listed as visitors to George Bailey in November 1902.

I would like to find descendents of my gggreat aunts and uncles in order to share information, especially if they can tell me more about John Lamb's parents, Jacob and Catherine, or Mary's parents, Paul and Susan(nah?)! Emma Lamb was my great-great grandmother.
