Researching the CAMERON/CAMMERER line. Anna Mary CAMERON (1834-1905), my great-great grandmother, was the daughter of Amelia (WEBNER)(1811-?) of Schuylkill County, PA & Samuel CAMMERER (born KEMMERER)(1812-?). Name changed to CAMERON with Anna Mary. Anna Mary had 2 brothers- William Henry (1840-?) & John Theodore(1844-?) both of PA. The CAMERONS were from Dauphin County, PA. Part of the family moved to Wisconsin & some to Illinois. But, they all wound up in Jewell County, Kansas. All were farmers. Anna Mary CAMERON married Henry WOLFE (1825-1907) of Williamsport, PA. They had 6 children: Amelia Bethada, William Henry & Samuel Sylvester all born in Williamsport, PA and Torrence Monotte, Lemuel Edgar & Frederich(k) Ervin all born in Buffalo Township, Jewell County, Kansas. Samuel WOLFE was married to Ellen (Ella) Macina FLIEHR, the daughter of Charles & Elizabeth FLIEHR. They had a son named Harold Fliehr WOLFE & a daughter Mary Gladys WOLFE.

I don't know much about this, but am interested in tracing the CHITTY family line. I was born and raised in Jamestown, KS (Cloud County). Our clan includes CHITTY, MORTON, LOFTUS, DOWNEY, MODLIN, FEARING, LINTON. Do you have anything to follow up on this?
James Perry C CHITTY [IGI] b 25 Dec 1865 Carroll, Shannon, IL
Martin Nelson CHITTY [IGI] b 02 Apr 1868 Carroll, Shannon, IL
Mary Catherine CHITTY [IGI] b 12 Dec 1872 Jewell, Randall, KS
Sarah Elizabeth CHITTY [IGI] b 23 Sep 1875 Jewell, Randall, KS
I am particularly interested in James Perry CHITTY--I'm pretty sure he is my great grandfather. If he married a Clementine LINTON of Concordia, KS, he is the one. I think he probably died in Jewell or Cloud Counties before the turn of the century. He and Clementine had children Nora, Phoebe, and James Oliver (my grandfather). Is there anything back from James Perry CHITTY. I remember my great grandmonther telling me one time that she could have been nicer at the time James Perry CHITTY's mother was ill and dieing.
Any information and/or suggestions on proceeding with this hunt will be appreciated.
