He was driving a Buick roadster from Charleston to Webb, where he was to meet his son William Jr. and his wife, on their way to Charleston for a visit.

There were no eye witnesses of the tragedy, but a short while ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis and it is believed that he suffered another stroke and thus lost control of the car.

For five years he was cashier of the bank of Charleston. During the last five years he had devoted all his time to his insurance and planting interests. The death of Mr. Lambert is mourned throughout the county of which he was one of the most prominent, respected and generally admired citizens. His gifts of charity and kindness to all endeared him to the entire community. Surviving him are his widow; three sons, William of Helena, Robert a student at the University of Mississippi; Thomas of New Orleans, and a daughter, Lucile, who has taught in the Charleston schools for several years. Six sisters of Mrs. Lambert will attend the funeral, five from Iuka and one from Greenwood. Burial will take place Monday afternoon, Dr. R. A. Kimbrough and Rev. J. R. G. Hewlett officiating.
