Re: origin of Lamberson

That James Lamberton was successful in banking in PA, had siblings who followed him to America, and had a brother who remained in Northern Ireland, whose descendant still lives on the old family farm. I found both the gravemarker for that line and the family farm near Eglinton, NI, and met the descendent who still lives there. Our family story is that my grandfather's grandfather did come over from that area in the mid-1800's, so I'm beginning to suspect that the name was misspelled somewhere early in the immigration period for the family and that subsequent ties were not maintained for whatever reason. The person I spoke with in NI had told me that all James' siblings had followed their emigrant brother with the one exception, John, who remained.
