Charles Lambert Diary (Ms 94)
The Charles Lambert Diary (1863-1909) is a four-volume,
carbon-copy typescript of the original that tells of Lambert's activities as a
stonecutter, bridge builder, and worker at a paper mill. After his death in
1892, diary entries were continued by his wife, Alice Cannon Lambert, to 1909.
Alice Lambert's entries largely discuss family matters. The document is
incomplete, as only volumes 6, 7, and 9 through 13 of the original diary are
included. Charles Lambert (1816-1892) was an 1843 convert to the Mormon Church
who immigrated from Liverpool, England, to Nauvoo, Illinois, in 1844. There, he
served in the Nauvoo Legion, and later participated in the Mormon migration to
Utah. A register is available.
