The Michael D. Cameys of Kewanee, IL

Updated September 10, 2000

My father is Michael D. Camey, born 1935 in Central Illinois. I am starting a research project to document our ancestry.

I have birth/death information on the following trees, which I would be happy to share with other family members:
* Michael's father is Robert Camey (1894-1960).
* His father is Robert Camey (1868-1947).
* His father is Bernard Camey (1821-1898).

Bernard and his wife Elizabeth Lennan(1831-1919) emigrated to Illinois from Portaferry County Downs in Northern Ireland in 1878, bringing 14 children with them. Their 15th child, Benjamin, was born in the US. Some of their other children include: George, Mary, Kate, Sarah, Elizabeth, Margaret, Hessie, John, Selena, Theresa, all born from 1852 thru 1879.

Any information on the ancestry of Bernard Camey or Elizabeth Lennon would be greatly appreciated. Bernard's father may have been George Camey, but it is thought that the surname may have been changed about that time. Maybe McCamey or McCamery?

Also, if there are any ancestors of Bernard and Elizabeth, especially living in California... I'd love to communicate with you.
