Family notes:
• Between 1799 and 1830, the overwhelming majority of Quakers left South Carolina and Georgia for territory where they could rear their children free from the influence of slavery. The exodus began in 1799 when a few Friends left Georgia for the Miami Valley of Ohio. Part of the Longshore Lamb family settled in Williamson Co., TN; and part continued on to Caldwell Co., KY. Both of these locations lay along a western route taken by Quakers migrating from South Carolina and Georgia to Indiana and Ohio.
• Longshore Lamb, born 1780 in South Carolina, prominent in Williamson Co., TN, was not the son of Thomas Lamb and Alice; however, he was probably a grandson.
