In The Roster of Confederate Soldiers, 1861-1865, Edited by Janet B. Hewett, Published by Broadfoot Publishing Co., Wilmington, NC, 1996, Vol IX, Jones, O - Loftis, Archibald, Pg 277, I found an E.S. Lamb in NC 66th Infantry Co. F. I'm not sure if this is our Lamb or not.

Elbert Sevier Lamb married Nancy Margaret Malinda Ricker on 10/30/1870. She was born on 3/18/1852 in Tennessee to Susannah Ricker. The family story is that Susannah was raped by an Indian so we don't know who Nancy's father was. Susannah was born 5/1/1831 in Greene County, Tennessee to John Nelson Ricker (b. 6/7/1799 in Greene County, TN; d. 5/29/1885 in Greene County, TN) and Mary Delila Lyles (b. 2/19/1806 in Greene, TN; m. 1/15/1821; d. 4/30/1891 in Greene County, TN). Susannah Ricker marries Edward Nolen 4/23/1873 when she was 42 yrs old and he was 26 yrs old.
