Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the Camp families for over 40 years as a request from my grandparents, Otis and Litha Camp, who raised me from an infant. I have visited many states and even been to Europe to get information. My wife is probably tired of me using our vacation time and money to visit Camp locations and cemeteries. I do this to keep the Camp memories alive and help us to remember them.

I had gotten started with Find-A-Grave a bit late; consequently, many Camp memorials had been already created. To all you wonderful people who created memorials and have graciously transferred them to me, I THANK YOU!! I will take good care of my ancestors and Camp relatives.

To all you wonderful photographers who have taken headstone photos, THANK YOU!! It all helps to honor our families!

To those of you who have asked, I do NOT have my genealogy on I keep it in a database in my computer where I have complete control over it. HOWEVER, I am willing to help fellow Camp researchers with any questions about the Camp families.

In my spare time I publish genealogy books for others as well as for myself. I have published several books on the Camps of New England. I have finished my book on the Camp Families from Edward Camp; all copies have been sold so we are adding more recent information and creating a second printing. A DVD version will be available soon as well. Contact me if interested.

Byron & Anne Camp Transfers
I just finished transferring the memorials as requested. I'm glad to be of service to you. FYI, I do not live in Ohio, but visit there each year--some of my relatives are buried at Woodlawn & others live in Ohio. When I visit Ohio each year I take more headstone photos & upload either the information or photo or both. Just doing my part to help genealogy.

RE: William Allen Camp
I agree. What I think happened is there are two William Camps. Maybe born the same day, but definitely died on different days And I think someone just assumed there were one and the same and added the wife and kids. We just need to find out which one really was married to the wife. Anxious to see what comes of it.

William Allen Camp Sr & Winifred
Sorry - directory was for 1960 - which means he was still alive then and did not die in 1953.

William Allen Camp Sr & Winifred
Found a city directors today 1822 - 1955 that states both William Allen Camp and Winifred B Camp were living in New Hampshire. If this is the case, the death date for Willima - 3/1/1953 in Connecticut cannot be right. All other records for William Camp show him with Winifred in Connecticut, New Hampshire and Lake, Florida. I see director for 1940 in Newton, Mass, but no census for that year. I have them (1920 census) Hartford, Ct and 1930 Middlesex, Mass. with kids. 1954 director in NH. Hopefully the cemeteries will tell the correct story.

RE: Camp data
That is fine and I will keep it in mind.
I was sending the censuses mainly to back up that she was born in 1823, as inscribed on her tombstone.

Thanks for creating the memorials. Helps me with my ongoing Bradford County genealogy project.

RE: William Camp
we can ask that the sexton of the cemetery do a pole test. This will see if there exists a vault that a coffin would be put in. I think that was done in all those dates. If so then someone/something is there in that grave.
You might have a better chance to ask for it since you are a relative. These are the numbers I have:

Susanne Perley –sec Union Cemetery 603-528-3423.

I'll be glad to transfer the memorials if you want. This memorial is just 30 feet from the north west corner of the caretakers building.

RE: William Allen Camp SR
I see that the other person is going to get in touch with the Connecticut cemetery. They did tell me Wiliam Allen Camp, Sr. was buried in their cemetery. I did not ask about Winifred, nor the children. Since the dates do not match, I'm inclined to believe this is not the same William. After you hear back from the other person, I will delete my memorial. But I plan to do a little more research on it first. Maybe we can get it straight.
