Always nice to help someone from Colville...

I did some basic research which lead to finding your family tree, at that point I stopped research. Post the link to your tree in the future with your posting, it helps volunteers see what you have already found to eliminate providing duplication. I really don't see you having trouble finding family history. You might need to further describe what you are seeking. I would also suggest posting on the Lincoln County Message Board on More view and volunteers.

The Washington Death Certificate Index, via Family search:;p=2;t=searchable
(click on "Search or Browse our record collections. Scroll down to Washington Death Certificate Index:)
Emily W. Hull, died Almira, Lincoln County, WA on 28 Sep 1910. Her father was Chas Lecamp, mother Polly Digert. She was 77 years, 7 months, 1 day (27 Feb 1833).
--Based on other information, it appears she was born in 1832.
--Based on other information, her last name was Decamp, not Lecamp
--Based on other information, she was previously married to Joseph Stanford Shaffer.
--Based on other information (below), mother was Dolly Dorcus Dygert.

WA Death Certificates:
Isabelle Lee, died 16 Aug 1924 in Walla Walla, married to John Lee, father was Joseph Shaffer, mother: Emily Decamp. Age 59 years, 1 month, 9 days.
Emmet(sic) W. Shaffer, died 26 Dec 1912 in "Kespelem"(Nespelem?), Okanogan Co, WA, father: Joseph Shaffer mother Emily Decamp. (named after brother)

The 1850 Census for Concord, Elkhart County, Indiana
Charles Decamp, 61, Mill wright, born in New Jersey
Mrs. Decamp, 55, New York
Charles, Jr, 21, laborer, Indiana
Emmet(sic) 18, laborer, Indiana
Emily(Emely?) 15(?)
--In 1860, "Emmot"(sic) is in Des Moines, IA,
In the above 1850 Census, Emily Decamp, is the first name on the page just above the family of Digert(?). The wife "appears" to be Polly, but this image is not certain

There are many family trees found that include Charles Decamp, one of which was yours:
Again, post the link to your family tree, that will prevent some volunteers from wasting your time providing what you have already found; and, prevent some volunteers from posting information that is wrong.
