Can you check this against the other FindAGrave entry for Cheryl? I think this is a duplicate and her maiden name is incorrect, based on the obit you have attached.

RE: William Van Camp
My grandmother was from Cummings, Kansas and kept a scrapbook full of old obituaries. That is where I came up with the information to add to Find a Grave. The obituary is dated April 8, 1931. I can send it to you if you wish.
