Yes. My ancestor Louise Camper?? Vann Ice had a daughter, Mary Adeline Vann who married Jahu Strode. This is why I am interested in a mtDNA study. To determine if in fact Louise is a Camper. A. L. Camper (bride) married G. W. Ice in 1855 in Smith County. This puts her in the right place and time to have come with Robert Hurt Camper when the family came to Texas. Unfortunately the Alabama marriage book for the period of time that Louise Camper?? would have married ??? Vann has been lost or destroyed. Land records for CSA widows does identify that my Louisa married George W. Ice. Another curious fact is that Robert Hurt Camper named a son, James Summers Camper and Mary Adeline Vann named a daughter Minnie Summers Strode.

I have since been working on Simon Camper's wife, Mary (Polly) Campbell and following the Campbell line back to Malcolm Campbell who came with a group from Scotland in 1740. Three groups of Scots came in 1738, 1739 and 1740 on the promise of land in New York. This is called the Argyll Patent. Malcolm soon moved on to Virginia (Augusta and Botetourt counties).

Mary Campbell's mother may have been Susannah Dabney. So a mtDNA could help connect a lot of female lines if we can just find current day direct female descendants.

Do you have any other ideas on female Camper descendants?
