  • Notes 
    • p.52, Family History of Morgan County Illinois, May 1976:

      "George CAMP was born 11 Dec 1786 in Connecticut, the son of Joel Camp, a Revolutionary War soldier, and grandson of Abel Camp, who also served in the Revolution. He married Nancy FELTON, grand-niece of Israel PUTNAM, at Tunbridge, Vermont, 7 Apr 1814 and first came to Morgan County (later Scott County) by foot in 1818. He returned to Vermont for his wife and four daughters, and on November 12, 1823 entered 240 acres of land in Sections 25, 33, and 34, Township 15,Range 12, of Morgan County (later Scott county), where he erected a log cabin. In 1835 he built a large home from lumber which had to be sawed at Alton, IL and sent up the Illinois River to Naples, IL, then overland by oxen. It was the first large frame house in what became Scott County (1839) and was situated on the Phillips Ferry Road, west of the present village of Riggston, IL. The youngest of ten children, Emily Jane CAMP was born in this house, 19 Mar 1837. George Camp was a Free Mason and built a room onto his new home, which was used as a clandestine meeting place of the Masons for many years. In addition to managing his increasing farm land, he owned and operated a carding mill, a general store, and a blacksmith shop. Nancy (FELTON) CAMP died 11 Apr 1849, and on 30 Sep 1850 George married Nancy Langdon, which marriage did not survive. Therefore, after the marriage of his daughter, Emily Jane, George camp went to Jacksonville, IL where he lived with another daughter, Maria Barber until his death 9 Oct 1866. George and Nancy Camp are buried in Gillham Cemetery west of Riggston,IL."
