Sunday’s Obituary: Jacob Lambert

Jacob Lambert was a farm laborer. Born about 1856 in Maryland, he was the son of Adam and Mary Adams Lambert. 

Typhoid fever is an acute infectious disease accompanied by fever, headache, and abdominal symptoms. The incubation period is generally two to three weeks. 

His obituary reads:
Jacob Lambert died at the residence of his father Adam Lambert, in Little Britain township, on the 17th inst., of typhoid fever, aged about twenty-seven years. Mr. Lambert removed with his father from Chester County in April last to the estate of William Black, deceased. But notwithstanding his short residence in the community he had gained the respect of many friends, and his sudden death has cast a gloom over society not easily removed.
