S. A. LAMBING, a resident of Kiskiminetas township, was born April 2, 1870, in Maysville, Armstrong Co., Pa., son of Adam and Mary (Ashbaugh) Lambing.

Adam Lambing was born in Pennsylvania, and died in this state Dec. 28, 1894. His widow, also a native of Pennsylvania, now eighty-six years old, makes her home with her son. She and her husband had three children, two of whom survive; S. A. and Mrs. T. C. Almes, who has two children.

S. A. Lambing attended the common schools of his district until his nineteenth year, and then worked on a farm for the succeeding two years. He then obtained employment on the Pennsylvania railroad and worked for the company seventeen and a half years, being assistant section foreman during about twelve years of that period. In 1891 he purchased two and three quarters acres of land on which there was a house, but later disposed of it, and in 1907 bought 110 square rods, on which he has his home at present. The residence is a comfortable one, and there is also a store on the premises. In the same year that he purchased his lot, he bought out the general store of C. A. Shirly, and has conducted it ever since. In 1907 Mr. Lambing was appointed postmaster of Maysville, now Long Run, and is the present incumbent of the office. The Lutheran Church holds his membership. Mr. Lambing is a cousin of Father Andrew A. Lambing, mentioned elsewhere in this history.
