I have Abner Lamb born about 1792. He enlisted in the army on March 7, 1814 in Plymouth, NC to fight in the War of 1812. There is a notation on his army record that seems to/may indicate that his birthdate was September 18, 1791. He is listed as 5 ft. 8 3/4 inches, with blue eyes, light hair, light complexion, is 23 years old, occupation listed as a shoemaker. I also have the 1850 census record that shows him married to Polly, with (presumably) his sister Nancy living with them, and (presumably) children, William and Nancy. I do not have a death record for Polly. He was married to Hester Ann Spruill on 2 May 1858. According to the 1860 census, he had a daughter, Thillipina born about 1859, with Thaddeus Bisque born about February 1860. In the 1870 census, he is not listed. I have Thaddeus Bisque's death date as 11 Jun 1928 in South Fork, Tyrrell County, according to his death certificate.
I have not been able to find more about Abner. I do not have any firm leads about who his parents were. I am hoping to review land records to see if I can find any further information, but as I live across the country, it might be a few years before I can do that. Good luck in your search!
