Carey Lambertson - Butler Co, OH & Madison Co., IN

My maternal 3rd-great grandfather, Carey W. LAMBERTSON was enumerated in the 1870 census of Butler Co., OH, and the the 1910 census of Madison Co., IN. These two census records are bookends of his adult life.

In 1870, he was living in Madison Twp., Jacksonborough P.O., and his occupation was listed as a farm laborer. He was 24 years old, and his wife Clara was 22. Carey's father, John, aged 70, born in New Jersey was also living with the household.

In 1910, he and Clara were living alone in Pipecreek Twp., near Elwood. Clara was listed as the mother of 5 children, all of whom were living in 1910. Carey's occupation was listed as laborer and junk dealer. Clara's parents were listed as being born in Virginia, Carey's as being born in New Jersey.

His name was spelled Cary in 1870 and Carey in 1910. I prefer to use the Carey spelling.

Carey W. LAMBERTSON b. April 29, 1847 Butler Co., OH., d. March 18, 1918 Elwood, Madison Co., IN., m. October 1, 1869 in Butler Co., OH to Clara E. COOK. Clara b. November 16, 1848 Ohio, d. January 23, 1943 Atlanta, Hamilton Co., IN.
