Biography of Elijah Lamb of Darien, NY

Elijah Lamb came about 1815 from Canada, and settled where his son John E now resides. He brought with him a team of horses, but had to sell one in order to make payment on his purchase of land. He made his own household furniture, worked hard at cleaning off the land, planted orchards, and was soon able to put up good buildings. He built a tannery, and tanned on shares the few hides he obtained from the farmers. From the flax raised on the place, and the wool from the sheep, Mrs. Lamb clothed the family. He was one of the prosperous citizens of the town when he died in 1869.
