Re: Louruffa Campen NC and Calloway County Ky
Bruce,I hope you have had some success with your post of 2007.I can only add that the names of Jesse Campen (also Champion, Campion), Tucker and Whitis keep appearing in my papers and research of the Spain and Martin families.
I am a direct descendant of Henry W. Martin and his wife Frances, who is said to have been a "Whitus."If it is at all meaningful, I have had my mitochondrial DNA examined and keep getting notices of matches, but they are very remotely related.If you know of any direct desc. of Rebecca Whitus who have, or want to have, their mt-DNA tested, let them know about me and mine.The Tucker name has been mentioned by family members as related somehow but as the years go on, relatives and their recollections are disappearing.Research for the Civil War years is tormented by lack of evidence, especially for 1860-70.My email address is provided at this forum if you would like to correspond directly.Best of luck,Ms Oma L. Rose - Reno, NV
