From: “Biographical Record of Salt Lake City and Vicinity,” p. 362-3, published 1902:

DAN LAMBERT, Bishop of Kamas Ward, Summit Stake of Zion, Summit County

“Whether assisting in the work of his Church or the development of the resources of Summit county; working for the improvement of its public schools, or for the advancement of the social and political conditions of his county, bishop Lambert can always be found in the front rank, of whom Summit county has no more honored or highly-respected citizen. While he was born in Salt Lake City, his whole life has been spent in this county, and his upright and straightforward life together with his enterprising spirit and self-denial for the good of his fellow-men has won for him a large circle of friends.

“Bishop Lambert’s father was John Lambert, a native of Yorkshire, England, where he was born January 31, 1820. He became a member of the Mormon Church in England and emigrated to America in 1842, joining the Mormon colony at Nauvoo, where he remained until the exocus of 1846. He made the trip across the great American plains by ox team in 1850 and settled in Salt Lake City, following the business of contracting and building. In 1861 he moved to Kamas, where he took up land and established a home, his land being in the center of the present town. He successfully followed farming the remainder of his life, and was the father of a large family, being the husband of two wives and the father of twenty-one children, sixteen of whom are now living. He was active in all Church work and a member of the Seventies. He died at the advance age of seventy-four years, on November 25, 1893.

“Our subject was born March 2, 1861, and was the chird child of Eleanor [sic] H. (Larson) Lambert, a native of Denmark. She was bapized at twelve years of age, and was the first girl to receive that ordinance in the kindom of Denmark. He grew up on his father’s farm in Kamas, and received his education in the common schools of that place. He bagan life for himself in 1882, when he and his brothers took a contract for supplying native timber for the mines of Park City, and has followed this business largely since then. He owns a fine farm near town, and has devoted considerable attention to the raising of blooded stock, particularly cattle.

“Bishop Lambert was married in 1885 to Miss May Young, daughter of Phineas Young, a brother of President Brigham Young. They have had a family of six children--Bathara, died in infancy; Lila M., Dan D., Marie, Craig and Lwrence T.

“In political life Bishop Lambert owes allegiance to the Democratic party, in whose ranks he has been quite active ever since its organization in this State. He has served one term as a County Commissioner of Summit county, and was a member of the Fourth Legislature, taking an active part in the work of that body. Among the committees on which he served were those of Mines and Mining, Horticulture and Agriculture, Resolutions, Memorials, Forestry, etc.

“He was ordained an Elder at the age of seventeen and in 1884 became a member of the Twenty-second Quorum of Seventies. In 1893 he served on a [LDS] mission to West Virginia. He was ordained a High Priest and set apart as a member of the High Council of Summit Stake in 1900, and in May of the following year was ordained Bishop of Kamas Ward. He has given much attention to Sunday school work and work among the young men, and is also largely interested in educational matters in his community, much of the efficiency of the present school system in Kamas being due to his untiring efforts in that direction. He has for the past several years been agent for the Ontario and Daly West Mining Companies, and is one of the well-known and public-spirited men of Summit county.”

From the writings of Arthur S. Larsen, Dan’s cousin:
“... Dan, related to me that, one late evening, with his dog, he went for the milch cows some distance away and on returning with them, his heels were being sniped repeatedly by what he presumed to be his dog in a playful manner and on turning to rebuke him found it to be a white wolf, which, at his turn, ran up on the hillside and sat on his haunches watching him as he passed.”

LDS Biographical Encyclopedia, vol 4:
LAMBERT, Dan, bishop of the Roosevelt Ward, Roosevelt Stake, Utah, from 1908 to 1911, was born March 2, 1861, in Salt Lake City, Utah, a son of John LAMBERT and Elina H. LARSEN. He was baptised 5 Sep 1878, ordained to the Priesthood, filled a mission to the Northeren States in 1893-1895, and was sustained a Bishop 20 Aug 1908.

Encyclopedic History of the LDS Church:

Roosevelt is an outgrowth of the Duchesne Ward, which on Sep 10, 1907, was divided into three divisions to be known as the Roosevelt, the Indian Bench and the Hayden branches. Bishop Ephraim Lambert of the Duchesne Ward was given jurisdiction over the Roosevelt District. On Aug. 20, 1908, the Duchesne Ward was reorganized, Bishop Lambert being released as Bishop and Daniel [sic] Lambert appointed to preside as Bishop of the Roosevelt Ward, which embraced much of the territory formerly included in the Duchesne Ward. In 1911 Bishop Daniel [sic] Lambert was succeeded by Paul Soren Hansen, who in 1914 was succeeded by Joseph Heber Lambert...

“... Dan Lambert was ordained bishop of Kamas ward, with William Ure and M.N. Pack for his first and second counsellors respectively.”

Newspaper: Wasatch Wave, Heber City, Utah, 27 Feb 1893, “Kamas Kinks”
A farewell reception was given Mr. D. Lambert in the afternoon of the 22nd to cheer his heart before starting on his mission to the Southern States. Friends and relatives were there to wish him luck, a happy return in the future, that his mission might be one of pleasure as well as of good and that all he undertakes to do, that is right, be fulfilled with many returns for his labor.

From: Early History of Duchesne County, p 266

[Ioka] “The first post office was a mail route established in 1908 with Charles Percival as the first mail carrier. Her made the trip three times a week to Myton and back with a horse and buggy sometimes and other times he rode horseback.

“ ... Postmasters in their order were: Dan Lambert ...

“Later another post office was established three miles east of the Lake Fork Post Office. This one was called “Ioka” and was located on the Dan Lambert homestead. Mrs. Lambert was postmistress... The Ioka Post Office operated until 1942...”

“... Ephraim Lambert of Roosevelt,... Mr. and Mrs. Dan Lambert of Roosevelt...

“Mr and Mrs. Dan Lambert had a narrow escape coming to Vernal. While driving along the Uintah bottoms, one side of the buggy collapsed, the rig tipped over pinning the occupants under it. The team was gentle or there would have been a serious time.”

HAYDEN. The Hayden townsite is two miles east of Neola and ten miles north of Roosevelt. The first settlers held their meetings in an Indian house which was the home of John G. Davis. Later, a family moved in who wished to establish a townsite farther west, claiming the present site of Hayden was too rocky to beautify. President William H. Smart of Uintah Stake, had already designated the townsite so the older settlers refused to move. This brought on a division, those desiring moved to a new site, Packer, and the others remained at Hayden.

Joseph Simms built a dance hall north of Hayden in which he allowed religious services to be held, until a log house was erected in the town which was used for school and church. Soon the Roosevelt Valley was organized into a ward with Daniel Lambert as Bishop. Hayden Town and surrounding territory was then made a branch of Roosevelt Ward, with Christian Peterson Branch president.

Quoting John Horrocks: "We came in April, 1908. There were about thirty families here then. By this time there was a post office, with James C. Peterson as postmaster. He had also opened a small store."

The first auxiliary organization was the Relief Society with Christine Peterson, president. John Burgess was choir leader and his wife, Sadie, played the piano. In 1910, the first Y.M.M.I.A. was organized with J. William Workman, president, Isabel Sessions was president of the Y.W.M.I.A. A new survey put the Wasatch-Uintah county line through the center of the Hayden townsite so the trustees from both towns decided to build a joint schoolhouse. The town of Hayden did not seem to prosper. Quite a number of lots were sold and some houses built. In time a branch of the Church was organized at Neola, a new townsite two miles west of Hayden. It was better farming country and people soon moved that way. The Hayden country developed into a great grass country, more profitable for stock raising and too rocky to plow. —Uintah County History
