You're very welcome. Mary Rebecca was born June 22, 1845 in Warrenton, Marshall Co, AL. Her father, Robert H. was listed as Camper in 1850 Marshall Co. Census; but 1860 Smith Co, Tx census lists the family as Kemper. His father, Simon, used Kemper in info I have. I don't think I've ever seen why it changed; it seems it may just be one of those spellings that evolved like my Henslee line was originally Hensley and you find it back and forth for a while on census, etc. Should I find something in my material concerning this, will post.
