LAMBERT: This was a rural post office established February 13, 1886, with Robert Vernon as postmaster. It was located in NW ¼ Sec. 22-155-58, Perth Twp., eight miles SW of Lankin, and was said to have been named for Louis A. Lambert, a famous Roman Catholic priest of the time who founded the Catholic Times magazine in 1874. Lambert is a Teutonic name meaning literally “land bright.” It is interpreted as glory of his country. In 1895 it was moved four miles NNE to the home of new postmaster, Joseph Bosh (1858-1930), who also ran a blacksmith shop at this site in SE ¼ Sec. 2-155-58.
