I'm interested in finding out if anyone knows of Camps living in Nova Scotia prior to 1850?
My ggg grandfather was Andrew Camps who was born about 1825 in Nova Scotia but immigrated to Lynn, Massachusetts with his wife Nancy (Harris) Camps around 1850. He served on the USS Colorado & the Ohio and then re-enlisted and served with Mass. 5th Colored Calvary during the Civil War. His life in Massachusetts is well documented but what he did prior to coming to Massachusetts remains a mystery. I'm sure he's related to Ephram & Latisha Camps of Phinney Mt. of Nova Scotia and his niece & nephew Belle & Nathan Camps who are mentioned in his obit also immigrated to Massachusetts from Nova Scotia and can be found in the census. Looking forward to hearing from anyone with information regarding the Camps family!
