I am at a dead end in looking for information on my great grandfather Charles Walter Camfield (1877-1940). The story is he was born in Canada and his parents were born in England but I cannot prove that. It might also be possible he was born in Illinois. He married Grace McKean in Illinois in 1905 and married Ethel around 1917/1918. He died in 1944 in Newkirk, Oklahoma. I really would like to know what line of Camfield's he comes from. Any information would be helpful.

Charles Camfield, or Charles Camfeld, had a jewelry store in Newkirk, Oklahoma. He had two daughters,Norma Von de Veld, or Norma VonDeVeld, and Floy, and a son, Don by his first wife. Then he had another daughter, Juanita by his second wife, Ethel. Norma is my mother's aunt on her maternal side. Norma was married to Leland Dean Von de Veld of Ponca City, Oklahoma. Norma and Dean had two daughters, Grace and Beth Irene. Norma and Beth are buried in the Newkirk cemetery by Charles Camfeld, Norma's father.

Norma's husband was a core drill contractor in Ponca City, Bartlesville and finally, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dean is buried in the IOOF cemetery at Ponca City, Oklahoma by his mother, Florence VondeVeldBowler. A grandson, Rick, who was adopted by Norma and Dean, still lives in Tulsa.

Hi Darla, thanks for the info. My grandfather was Charles Camfield Jr. He was the youngest child of Charles and Ethel. He was the younger brother of Floy, Norma, don, and Juanita. He was born in 1926. He died in 2004. I knew Ethel. My dad used to take my sister and I up to Newkirk to see her. I also knew Norma in her last years. My dad said his dad who went by Bud didn't talk much about his childhood. I heard some stories but didnt think to ask much until it was to late. Bud joined the air force the same year his dad died. I knew Charles owned a jewlery store after working in the oil field. I have his death certificate and obit. I am trying to find out more about his parents. They were born in England. Charles was born in New Brunswick, Canada. His mother was a Wentworth. I cant find names or dates for them. My dad grew up in England where Bud was stationed and he remembers Bud saying the Wentworths were from that area which was the East Anglia region.

Back in the early 90s we used to have Christmas with Norma, Dana, and Rick. I haven't seen Dana or Rick in at least 15 years.

Thanks!
