The population of Johnson County is a mobile one. The average length of stay for a person moving into this county is around two and a half years. However, there are quite a few "century" families (families that have maintained an unbroken generational presence for a hundred years or more) around. This is the story of one of them.
In 1912 Beulah White married William P. Lamb in Warrensburg. She was 20 years old.
William P. Lamb, the son of Lifus Lamb of Warrensburg had six brothers and two sisters.
In 1913, the year following their marriage, Beulah and William P. Lamb had the first of their 10 children. They had seven daughters and three sons.
They had been married for 43 years when he died in 1955. She lived on another 20 years before she died in 1975.
