The Paonia Public Library states that Mt. Lamborn may have been named for a Robert H. Lamborn, a Civil War companion of General William J. Palmer and Vice President of the Denver & Rio Grande Railway when it was organized Oct. 27, 1870 (George L. Beam and the Denver and Rio Grande by Jackson C. Thode, 1986, p. 176. However that reference calls him Charles H. Lamborn). I have found no further reference to Charles H. Lamborn. However, I googled Dr. Robert H. Lamborn and found that he was born in 1836 near Kennett Square, Chester Co., Pa. and died unmarried January 14, 1895, survived by a brother and a sister. According to his biography, he worked in the railroad business in Pa. and became interested in the construction of railroads in the southwestern states and was also a large owner of the Mexican Central Railway. Does anyone have more information on this family? The railroad was not extended to Somerset, near Paonia until 1902.
