With regard to your request to add John Lambert's family to the 1850 Lorenzo Young company in the pioneer database on the Church web site:
We had the Lamberts in the 1850 unidentified company category with a note that they might have traveled in the Young company. However the John Lambert 1893 statement proves that they were in the Hawkins company. If he traveled "in the company of Thomas Johnson," then he was in the Hawkins company because Johnson was a captain of fifty in that company. I am including the portion of his statement referring to his crossing the plains on our web site, too.
Thomas Johnson Company
Nelson, William Goforth, Reminiscences, in Journal History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 9 Sept. 1850, 6-7.
Two companies of Saints arrived in G. S. L. City. William Goforth Nelson, who was with one of these companies wrote as follows: <(Thomas Johnson Co)>
It was on the 8th day of May, 1850, that we started from Mt. Pisgah to Council Bluffs and thence crossed the plains to Salt Lake Valley. We started with two good wagons and good ox teams. We also had a number of cows. We traveled pretty much alone until we had come four miles west of Council Bluffs, where we found a camp of Saints, and on June 4th the camp was organized with Thomas Johnson as captain.
The following day we were ready to start on our journey west. There were fifty wagons in the company. My brother Price met us at Council Bluffs and came to the Valley with us, but Hyrum came in another company later the same year. Our journey was quite a pleasant one. We had good luck, no Indian trouble whatever, and only three deaths occurred in our company on the trip. The first one of these was a woman, the wife of a man named Wilkinson. She was buried on the west side of the mouth of "Ash Hollow". The second was my cousin, Dr. Thomas Goforth, who was buried a little east of "Chimney Rock". The next, a few day later, was a Brother Borum. Melvin Ross and I dug the grave and buried it. These persons were buried in graves made with a vault in the bottom. The bodies were wrapped in a quilt, blanket or wagon cover, whichever could best be spared and would then be placed in the vault; timbers put across and hay spread over and then covered with dirt. When we were at Sweet Water, my Father contracted the mountain fever from which he never fully recovered. While on the plains we saw a great many herds of Buffalo. When they were on their trails leading to watering places, they would not get out of our way, and if they were trailing across our road, we would be compelled to stop our teams until they would have time to pass. But if they were feeding we could not get near them.
We reached Salt Lake City, Sept. 9, 1850, and camped on the public square for two days.
