This book will be the first full history of Campton Township ever published, and is based in part upon the works and research of Lucinda Muirhead Corron. Adam also used many of the documents and photographs in the Corron Family collection in his book, plus contributions from dozens of Campton residents, as well as schools and churches.
This two part set provides a complete illustrated history of original Campton Township residents and their descendants, comprehensive table of contents, and a full surname index.
Adam says, “Over twenty individuals and groups donated thousands of images for inclusion in the book - besides Corron Farm Preservation Society, major contributors were Chris (Johnson) Brauer, Joy (Bowgren) Nelson, the Town & Country Public Library, Filip Johnson, Mary Campbell, the Sharp family, Mike Ormond, and Mary Mather, with contributions from George Bergland, Mary Damisch, Dolly Anderson, Barbara (Norton) Tamms, Sarah (Corron) Toms, Nancy (Mongerson) Warner, Wendell Craft, Jerry Johnson (Garfield Farm), and many more.”
