The Carmen Lambertson family appears in the 1860 census of German Twp., Montgomery Co., OH and the 1870 census of Van Buren Twp., Darke Co., OH. While I have his name as being spelled 'Carmon', both census records spell it as 'Carmen'. Carmon was my maternal 3rd-great granduncle.
Carmen's occupation was that of a farmer in 1860 and a wagon maker in 1870. He and his wife Mary must have lost two children as during that time period as daughter Florence b. circa 1851 and son James b. circa 1853 were not listed in the 1870 census. The value of Carmen's personal estate was only $100 in 1870.
