Biographical history

The Camp family were probably descended from Captain Abiathar Camp, a Loyalist who arrived in New Brunswick in 1783. They settled in Sunbury County, New Brunswick. Neil and Abigail Camp had 3 children, Mary, Hiel, and Calvin. Hiel died in 1811. Calvin married Hester Veits in July 1813. He died in 1829.

Mary wed Samuel Buckingham prior to 1804. She died in 1816 survived by a small child, possibly an infant, some other older children, and her husband. The Buckingham family lived in Oxford, Connecticut.
