I am looking for any information on the Cammack family. My husband, Terry Oelberg is a grandson of Marion Bishop who is a g(?)-grand daughter of Cynthia Cammack and Franklin Peck Bishop.(?) Cythia's father may be James Cammack b about 1790 in Wythe, Virginia and her mother Susan Carter. James may have been married to Nancy Miller and had a son with her, James Jr. It is said that a John Cammack fought in the Revolutionary War listed in the Spotsylvania County, Virginia records. He served in the company of Captain Brock and was in Colonel Spotswood regiment of the State of Virginia. It is said that his ancestors came from England in a letter from Susan Bishop Smith, grand daugher of Cynthia Cammack. In this letter it is also said that "they" owned a plantation in Kentucky, migrated to Iowa via Wisconsin around 1848-49. I do not have any information if this plantation was owned by Cynthia Cammack and Franklin Bishop or if this was her father or his father. In letter states that "had black slaves, 1830 when there father died. He will the Black Slave free." (spelling in letter!) Franklin and Cynthia left Kentucky with Bishop, Miller, Cammack familys, two sisters and one brother. They came in covered wagons, three families with their children. They brought horses and 100 sheep with them. "There mother and father was cammack" (again, spelling in letter!) Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
