|08-21||Hamlin, Lambert, Lembert, Mosher, Spaulding||The name Lembert is also seen as Lambert in many instances. Will give background and then some questions that I need help with.
Francis X. Lembert married Maggie Spaulding (a widow) in 1900. They lived at 601 Vine Street, Reno. Frank died in June 1902 at the Los Angeles Veterans Home where he had only lived for about a month; he is buried in the LA National Cemetery; he was an active member of Gen. O. M. Mitchell Post of the GAR. His step-daughter Alice Mosher died July 1902 and is buried in IOOF Cemetery; funeral director was Perkins and Oliver. His widow, Maggie, married H. Hamlin, optician, in 1903, but they were divorced in 1905-6. Newspaper article mentions F.C. Updike as administrator of F. X. Lembert estate. Do funeral home records exist for Perkins and Oliver?
Where is IOOF cemetery?
Any ideas on tracking deed records for 601 Vine Street, Reno?
Any ideas on tracking Maggie Spaulding Lembert Hamlin forward?
Do any records exist from Gen. O. M. Mitchell Post GAR?
