Re: George Cephas Camlin of Ohio
I was researching Camblins yesterday at the national archives and came across this census entry:
Cepes Camblin age 22-Male-Carpenter
living with Abraham and Hannah Pipinger
1860 Montgomery Co., Ohio, Perry Twp pg 342
Note: I descend from George Camblin's daughter Anna Eliza.Her brother was a Cephas b.1809 and she had a nephew Cephas b. 1857.The newphew is also listed as Josephus; so I believe Cephus may just be a shortened form of Josephus.
