Thirty-plus years ago when I first got seriously interested in genealogy, I failed to start from the present backwards...quite the opposite, in fact. So, I have a lot of information on various Lumbard lines that don't necessarily connect (that I'm aware of). Since I've already done all that work, I decided to change my initial goals and just gather as much as I can on each of the lines. Keeps me busy when I have those few spare moments nowadays!
Click on the "Home" tab to see what changes I've made to the site.
Variant spellings (but certainly are not limited to) include Lombard, Lambert, Lambart, Lombert, Lomebard, Lumber, Lombar, Lomber and Lumbert.
Throughout this site on the gravestones and photos/documents pages, all Lumbard spellings are treated as one - except Lambert. Helpful hint: in the Master Index, the variant spellings are used, but you can look under "Lumbard" and those names will appear there as well.
If you are using the Search form, the spellings are not treated the same. Whenever possible, the spelling I used in my database is the spelling in the earliest record I found for that individual.
I kept my maiden name when I married and have since added information on my husband's Martin/Sutton lines as well.
Whenever possible (and time permitting), I've tried to include at least one generation for any female of the Lumbard line.
Looking for information for Barbara Lumbard, who would have been adopted in the early-mid 1960s in Alabama.
Family lore stated that Henry Charles Martin, Sr, b. February 1878 in Buffalo, Erie County, NY was actually born Henry Charles Kimmerly (sp?). He had issues with his father and left home at a young age and resided with a Martin family and subsequently took the Martin name.
I highly suspect that he was the son of Catherine's brother, Peter Cimmerer, and his wife, Susan Lippert (or Leopard), and was the twin of Harriet Cimmerer (unless Harriet was born in December of the same year). ANY proof of this, his parentage or any information about him at all would be greatly appreciated!
