I have pictures of Nancy (Campton) and George Washington Reno.My direct line is Nancy's sister Elizabeth married Nelson J Long in Ohio.
George Washington Reno is in a military uniform and I'd love it if someone knew what war it is from...perhaps the Civil War.
Soon I will scan the pictures on here if anyone wants a copy.
I have been neglecting my Long side of the family while searching Waldens in Kentucky.
An important correction..I just discovered that Nancy and Elizabeth were niece and aunt rather than sisters!!!!
It's great to finally try to piece together this family!
I welcome any further info.

Hi Elaine,
Thank you for posting the pictures. I am currently working on this lineage. I believe Nancy's father William Campton was the brother of my great great grandfather, James Claude Campton, whose son John Higgins Campton is my great grandfather. I still have not found documentation that shows William and James Claude were brothers. If my information is correct, though, their father was John Campton (b~1786) and he and his brother William were among the earliest settlers in Highland County, Ohio, having settled there after moving from someplace in Kentucky. Can you confirm?

When I go home,I'll get the info and contact you.

Yes Don, from the info I have William and James Claude were brothers..sons of John and Nancy Campton.
The info I have says that John,Robert and William Campton came to Ohio from Kentucky.I have a book called "History of the Early Settlement of Highland County,Ohio".In it,John and William are noted as being in the tanning business.John started a tannery in 1803 in New Market and William joined him.Later,about 1808,John bought land in Hillsboro and started a tannery there too.I think he sold the first business to William.
