Clemon Beals Lambertson (1898-1994)

Clemon Beals LAMBERTSON was my maternal great-grandfather. Though he lived in nearby Anderson, I didn't see him too much and have only a few memories of him.

The following facts about Clemon's life are known:
  • Birth: He was born October 27, 1898 in Cicero, Hamilton County, Indiana, the son of Charles Wilson & Pearl May (BEALS) LAMBERTSON.
  • Census: 1900 - appears in the household of Cary LAMBERTSON in Jackson Township, Hamilton County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1910 - appears in the household of Charles LAMBERTSON in Jackson Township, Hamilton County, Indiana.
  • Marriage: He married June Kirk GILLILAND on June 28, 1917 in Monroe County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1920 - appears as head of household in 2nd ward, City of Elwood, Madison County, Indiana. Occupation was carmeler at cabinet factory.
  • Burned : April 15, 1930 - the Tipton Tribune reported that Clemon was seriously burned and was in Mercy Hospital.
  • Census : 1930 - appears as head of household in 2nd ward, City of Elwood, Madison County, Indiana. Occupation was laborer in cabinet factory.
  • Marriage: He married Helen B. (DUNCAN) FISHER on October 11, 1952 in Anderson, Madison County, Indiana. Helen was the widow of his first cousin, Ralph Fisher. Clemon's first wife, June, had passed away in 1951.
  • Family Reunion: May 18, 1961 - the Anderson Daily Bulletin mentioned that there was a Lambertson family reunion held.
  • Death: He died March 18, 1994 in Anderson, Madison County, Indiana.
The following facts need further research and/or documentation to complete my research:

  • Birth: Need to obtain Clemon's birth certificate from the Hamilton County Health Department. The date of birth comes from multiple sources, but I still would like an official record
  • Marriage: Need a copy of his marriage application to verify that he was married in Monroe County, Indiana, and not Hamilton County.
  • Death: Need to obtain Clemon's death certificate from the Madison County Health Department.
  • Obituary: I have Clemon's obituary from the Anderson Herald Bulletin, but need to check other local papers to see if there were other mentions.
