    Notes 
    • EDMOND N. CAMP, a leading fruit grower of this region, is a grandson of Abner and Mary (Reynolds) Camp, the former a soldier in the war of 1812, who about 1825 brought his family from North Carolina to Coweta county, Ga., among them his three-year-old son, Abner, Jr. The latter was reared on the farm, and in time married Miss Nancy Holland, whose parents, Abraham and Nancy (Underrwood) Holland were of South Carolinian birth, her father also having served in the war of 1812. Edmond N., the son of Abner and Nancy, was born in this county in 1851, and received such education as was to be obtained in the country schools. In 1872 he married Miss Orlean Rollins, who was born in Heard county in 1851, and is the daughter of James and Elizabeth (Houston) Rollins. They have ten children: James, Andrew, Fred, Wayman, Hugh, Pauline, Lee, Frank, Victoria and Ralph. The parents are both members of the Methodist Episcopal church. When on reaching manhood Mr. Camp started in life for himself he worked for some years as a mechanic at the carpenter's trade, at wagon making, etc. But he seemed to have a natural fondness for horticulture, and in 1886 he devoted himself wholly to this, with an enthusiasm which could not fail of success. He is recognized throughout this region as the largest and most successful fruit grower in the state. He now has fifty acres of fine grapes and thirty of peaches, several devoted to pears and strawberries, has five acres of quinces and a number in apples. He may well regard with pride his achievements. [2]
