|Bio and Links|
I have been researching the Camp families for over 35 years as a request from my Grandparents, Otis and Litha Camp who raised me from an infant, and my Mother, Florence Camp Ottmer. 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. |
To all you wonderful people who created memorials and have graciously transferred them to me, I THANK YOU!! (I am just late in getting started with Find-A-Grave.)
To all you wonderful photographers who have taken headstone photos, THANK YOU!! It all helps to honor the our 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. My new book on the Camp Families from Edward Camp is now finished and at the printer's. I will soon be offering it for sale.
Most importantly, I am a 6 year cancer survivor.

|Jennifer Fowler||RE: Stacy Fowler|
Thank you for your reply! its just odd to see the name Stacy Fowler and have it be a MALE in this area. My dads name Stacy goes back five generations of naming their first boy Stacy. My dad ended up having 2 girls so the tradition ended with him but I guess Im still looking for my grandfather and great grandfather! :) Thank you again :) If you ever come across a Stacy H Fowler (my grandfather let me know) Hes buried somewhere in Philadelphia thats all I know (he was married to my grandmother but divorced when my dad was 3) and died in 1980.
I noticed that you had added a photo of "Stacy Fowler" My dads name is Stacy and goes back 5 generations and I know his biological father is buried somewhere in Phildelphia as so is his grandfather as well. Do you know if there is any more info on the stacy fowler you found?
|Bob Collins||RE: Camp headstones|
It is interesting to hear that these people were poor. There are 4 conjoined lots there--and that is prime real estate--and more real estate than would be necessary to inter only 6 people. You might want to contact the cemetery and find out who besides the CAMPs are buried in those lots. I suspect the absence of stones has more to do with choice than with poverty. It is not uncommon in Green-Wood to find unmarked graves in pricey neighborhoods.
Hi Jim - thank you for the transfer request. Very glad you asked. It should be completed now. Regards, Sara
