From: “Biographical Record of Salt Lake City and Vicinity,” p. 357, published 1902:

RICHARD F. LAMBERT, prominent agriculturalist and stockman of Kamas valley, Summit county.

“The early days of the settlement of Utah will ever be memorable as days of hardships endured by the early pioneers and their sons. The vast work of redeeming this country from its wild and undeveloped state was no easy task, and only men of exceptionally strong will power and determination could have ever subdued the country and developed it to its present most wonderful state of prosperity. Among the State’s worthy sons, and one who has cheerfully performed his part in developing the vast resources of Utah and especially of Summit County, Richard F. Lambert, the subject of this sketch, is deserving of much credit.

“He is a native son of Utah, having been born in Salt Lake City, February 11, 1855, and is the son of John and Adelia (Grosbeck) Lambert... Our subject was but seven years of age when the family moved to Rhodes valley, now known as Kamas, and he has been a resident of Summit county since that time, receiving his education the common schools of Kamas, and growing up on his father’s farm, his life being that of every son of the pioneers. Upon attaining his majority he started out in life for himself, working in the timber, and later engaged in the sawmill business with his brothers, supplying timber for Park City mines, following this occupation for ten or twelve years. During this period he purchased his present farm on the west side of the valley, near the county road, and in 1886 moved his family onto his farm where he has since resided. He has ninety acres of valuable land under irrigation, and devotes his attention principally to the raising of oats and hay. He has about fifty head of cattle on his place. He built a find two-story residence on his farm in 1898 and his home is today one of the most beautiul in this valley.

“He was married April 14, 1886, to Miss Elva E. Wolstenhulme, daughter of James and Mary (Page) Wolstenhulme. They have six children--Elva E., Richard F. Jr., Ira C., Reuben, James W., and John Arvil.

“In politics Mr. Lambert is a Democrat, but although he has been active in promoting the welfare of his party, he has never sought or held public office, his time aside from his business being given mostly to Church work. He has taken much pride in assisting to develop the agricultural resources of his county, and has been largely instrumental in obtaining the fine irrigation system now in operation in Kamas valley. He is interested in two irrigation companies and assisted in constructing the water system of that valley. He is at this time a member of the Twenty-second Quorum of Seventies, and an active worker in his Ward. Mrs. Lambert is also prominent in the work of the Church in her community, being a member of the Ladies’ Relief Society and was for a number of years President of the Young Ladies’ Mutual Improvement Association. She has also acted in the capacity of Counselor to the President of the Primary Department of the Relief Society, and is a teacher in the Sunday Schools.

“Mr. Lambert has worked his own way up to his present prominent position among the farmers and stockmen of Summit county, and has by his energy, perseverance and undaunted courage in the face of all obstacles won the admiration and esteem of those who have known him throughout a life of over forty years.”

Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church:

MARION WARD, Summit Stake, Summit Co., Utah, was organized May 1, 1909, from the north part of the Kamas Ward and the south part of Oakley Ward. It contains a fertile farming district extending across Kamas Valley from the mountains on the east to the mountains on the west. The ward extends north to the Weber River and south to Kamas. The meeting house, a concrete building, erected in 1913–1914 at a cost of $7,000, stands on the east side of the main road running north and south through the ward and is about three miles north of Kamas. Seth C. Jones was the first Bishop of Marion Ward. He was succeeded in April, 1913, by Joseph E. Nelson, who was succeeded in December, 1913, by Cornelius S. Green, who was succeeded in 1915 by George Boyes Andrus, who was succeeded in 1916 by Joseph Boyes Andrus, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the ward had 188 members, including 40 children.
