John Lambertson family - 1900 Randolph Co., IN

John V. Lambertson family appears in the 1900 census of Randolph Co., IN in Monroe Twp. He was living in the household of his father-in-law, William Oliver. By this time, John was married to second wife, Annie E. Oliver. John stated that his father was born in Germany and that his mother was born in Virginia. This conflicts with other data that shows his father and mother were both born in New Jersey.

John was born August 17, 1833 in Warren Co., NJ, and had married his second wife, Annie E. Oliver on April 20, 1882 in Farmland, Randolph Co., IN. Annie was born August 1853 in Ohio and died May 1, 1901 in Hamilton, OH. John died August 30, 1913 in Farmersville, Butler Co., OH. John is buried in the Municipal Cemetery, Farmersville.

John and Annie had one son, Ward W. Lambertson, born August 3, 1886 in Ohio.

There were other grandchildren of William Oliver listed in the household under the name of Lyst. They were Oliver, Annie and Ralph. I speculate that they may be the children of Millard and Hettie (________) Lyst, grandchildren of John and Sarah (Lambertson) Lyst. This would make another connection between Mr. Oliver and the Lambertson family.
