McLamb Family Reunion
Welcome to the McLamb Family website. This website is for members of the McLamb Family from Sampson County, North Carolina of African Heritage.
With this website we hope to keep everyone updated on things happening in our family circle. Also visit our Family News Link for special occasions shared by family.
A look back to yesterday...
In my travels I spotted this old water pump at a church on McLamb/Church Road. Growing up in rural Sampson County as a child, this is how we got our water. I remember priming a pump for water. Thinking back that was some good clear and cold drinking water. This set up is a little fancier than what we had on our back porch.
I'm sure this picture will bring back memories for those of us 50+ years and older that grew up in the rural south.
As I continue my "In Search of You" I traveled to Alum Springs Disciples of Christ Church. I found the gravesite of Larrie McLamb, Jr. grandparents that attended the 2008 Family Reunion from Harrisburg, PA.
My next stop of my "In Search of You" was to find the beginning of "Negro Head Road." This road runs from Southport to Lillington.
In Search of you, our family is extremely happy to witness history as we usher in the 44th President, which happens to be an African American, Barack Obama. Find out about Obama at http://origin.barackobama.com/about/.
Those of us from the Civil Rights Movement days never thought we would see this in our lifetime. Our hearts are filled with joy as we see another piece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream come to life. The dream will never be fulfilled until our race of people are judged on the content of our character and we live in a color blind society.
