A letter of interest... Jesse Lamb July 22, 2009
« on: July 22, 2009, 05:51:49 PM »

While doing some family history research, I came across your entry on the Anderson Lamb boys rifle.  My gggrandfather was Jesse Lamb was a gunsmith who migrated from Guilford County to Georgia in the 1840s.  You seem to know quite a bit about the family, so I thought Id see if you know anything about any of the family moving to Georgia.  Grandpa Jesse set up shop in Covington, Newton County, Georgia, which is a little east of Atlanta.  He made guns for the Confederacy in Atlanta.  His guns bear the motif of a heart on the stock.

 

Any information that you can provide would be wonderful.

 

Thank you for your time and assistance.

 

Yours truly,

Brenda Austin Mason
