Hello. Lawrence Thompson, that's quite a name. I have both Lawrence and Thompson ancestors. My grandfather Opie Thompson married Eva Lena Lawrence. All of my Thompson's and Lawrence's were from Pendleton County, WV. Do you tie into them? if your line is from Pendleton County and you give me your line back as far as you can, I can probably find a connection. If you don't know if they were or not, if you let me know your line as far back as you know it, i will do my best to try and find your line. I have quite a bit of information on the Thompson's and the Lawrence's from Pendleton County, WV..

I would love it if you found out more about the Camp. I am not sure but I think I have several images of my family from the 1920's swimming, floating, and having a picnic there. I believe it was a very nice place.
