NoteWhen Elizabeth Jane Lamb and Thomas Gallagher were married in Ontario County, their record shows them both as residents of Whitby. (Old Ontario County is now part of the Durham Region.) We do not know why the couple were in Whitby at the time, though, at a guess, it was entirely temporary. The clergyman who married them at the time was a Congregationalist by the name of James T. Byrne. Elizabeth's brother, James Byrne Lamb, was almost certainly named after him - James B. Lamb himself being a witness at the wedding.

See notes for husband Thomas. Elizabeth died 12 November, 1868, according to her gravestone in Beechwood Cemetery. According to the Beechwood register of interments, she was transferred from Sandy Hill Cemetery to Beechwood Cemetery and buried there on June 29, 1882. Transferred with her from Sandy Hill and reburied on the same day was Mary Eleanor Gallagher. She does not appear on a surviving gravestone record, but Beechwood's interment register indicates that she was buried in the same plot. The logic is that she is a child, perhaps an infant, and will likely be interred with her mother.
