Unmarked grave.
Hannah is referenced in Minnie Kendall Lowther's Book "The History of Ritchie County, page 321.

Quoting from that book "Thomas Smallwood Wilson was the first denizen of the Iames farm. He was born in Monongalia county, in 1784, and there he was married to Miss Hannah Camp, daughter of Adam Camp, and in 1843, he came to this county, and settled on the Michaels' farm, near Oxford, for a brief time, before coming to the Iames homestead.

This pioneer was a lumber merchant, and while on a trip to Cincinnati, in 1848, he contracted cholera, and by the time he had reached Parkersburg, on his return, he was stricken with the fatal malady, and died there; and was laid at rest near the present site of the B. & O. depot, at that place. Mrs. Wilson died at the P. R. Tharp homestead, on Indian run, in 1856, and in the Drake burying-ground, on the County farm, she sleeps."

NOTE: Minnie Kendall Lowther stated that Hannah's father was Adam Camp, but her father was actually Isaac VanCamp.
