Camp Family of American from the American Pioneers Series By Jeannette Holland Austin
Thomas 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.

A colorful character was Burrell Marion Camp, a Missionary Baptist preacher of 40 years at the High Shoals Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Georgia. His church was a one-room building located on High Shoals in Dallas, which also doubled for a school. His members were baptised under a waterfall, just steps away from the old cemetery where he is buried.
