Charles Wilson Lambertson (1872-1958)

Charles Wilson LAMBERTSON (1872-1958) was my maternal 2nd-great grandfather.  The LAMBERTSON line has origins stretching back into Sussex/Warren County, New Jersey area around 1800.

The following facts about Charles' life are known:
  • Birth: He was born January 25, 1872 in Preble County, Ohio, the son of Carey W. and Clara E. (COOK) LAMBERTSON.
  • Marriage: He married Pearl May BEALS on April 18, 1897 in Hamilton County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1900 - He appears as the head of household in Jackson Township, Hamilton County, Indiana.

The following facts need further research and/or documentation to complete my research:
  • Census: Need to locate him in the 1880 census, should be in the household of Carey LAMBERTSON, probably in Preble County, Ohio
  • Marriage: Need to locate a copy of his marriage record from Hamilton County, Indiana to see what other information it may contain
