      I have very little information on this family. The further back records are much harder to come by. The only proof for this material comes from papers in the possession of Judge Zelma Price, publish by Col. Neville Mann. Her research was published in 1958. This same source is cited also by Russ Williams. Several researchers have assumed that they were married in Westmoreland County, Virginia but no records have been found to verify this. [Williams, p. 6]
      Although Thomas Camp was born and lived most of his married life in King and Queen Co., Virginia. In his last years he moves his family to Culpepper County. They seemed to have lived a quiet life. I have found no records on this family but have depended on the research of others.
      Mary Marshall was not mentioned in her father's will, however, old documents once in the possession of Judge Zelma W. Price, late of Greenwood, Mississippi, stated that she was a daughter. "These documents also related that Mary Marshall Camp's mother Martha Sherwood Marshall died in the home of her 'son-in-law' Thomas Camp on the "4th of July 1749.' [Mann. v.1,p. 6]
      It is also alleged that Thomas married Mary in Westmoreland County, but since no records exists in that county, their marriage must have taken place in King and Queen, no doubt the place of her residence at marriage time. With her brother William Marshall inheriting the Marshall estate, he probably became the guardian to the children not named in the Will. He removed to King and Queen County, not long after his father's death. As he moved he sold the old family estate in Westmoreland County to his brother John Marshall, land that lay in 'Washington Parish' in Westmoreland County, Virginia. [King: Marriages of Richmond Co., VA. p. 129, He used Westmoreland County, COB 1698-1705, p. 268a; D&W#3, p.232; and D&W#3, p. 268a and D&W#8, p. 923; as proof for these statements).
