The Bible from which the following Lamberson information is taken is the 1797 edition of several published by Mark and Charles Kerr of Edinburgh Scotland. This company published from 1790 to 1820. I contacted the rare books division of the Scottish National Archives and was advised that only two other 1797 editions of this Bible are known to exist, and the Scots don't have one! In any case, here is what is in the family geneology:

Waters, son of John Lamberson was born April 3 in the year of our Lord 1749 and on 24th April 1775 was married to Hannah Smith widow of William Smith and daughter of Hope Rhoads. Born February 9, 1749

Waters Lamberson was born July 9, 1776
David Lamberson was born June 5 1778
Margaret Lamberson was born September 27, 1780
Sarah Lamberson was born October 3, 1783
John Lamberson was born August 9, 1785
Nicholas Lamberson died September 21, 1788
Nicholas Lamberson was born June 22, 1790
Polly Lamberson was born October 7, 1792
Nicholas Lamberson died September 24, 1793

That's all that is recorded on the blank page adjacent to the begining of the New Testament, which is where such items were usually noted.
