I am searching for my great grandfather's parents and other ancestors in and around Lee County Arkansas. His name is Arthur (Auther) Columbus CAMP. He was born in 1888 in Lee County as far as we know. His father, Thomas CAMP, was from Arkansas but not sure if from Lee County. His mother was "Nannie" ADAMS. We are not sure if Nannie was a nickname or her real name. Arthur or Papa CAMP as we grandkids knew him married Paralee RIDDLE. They had two children Thomas and Claude. We believe that Paralee died during or after childbirth with Claude in 1912. In December 1917, Papa CAMP married his second wife, Ruth Reta PUTMAN. They had four children. Margaree Evergreen, Viola Lavern, Myrtle Frances, and Eugene Harold. All girls were born in Moro, Lee County. Eugene was born in Searcy, White County, AR.
