Camp, Campe Family of America

By Jeannette Holland Austin

Thomas Camp HouseThomas Camp (1717-1798)is the progenitor of the Camps in America. This prolific family traces its roots from England to Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Thomas (above) settled in Rutherford County, North Carolina. He had 12 children by his first wife and 12 by his second wife. No matter where they settled, the Camps were pillars of the community, many of them Baptist and Methodist preachers. Prominent Virginia families associate with the Camps, such as Sherwood, Marshall and Tarpley. More information
