Hello Edith

Not sure if our Filkin family match up. Heres some of what I have concerning the dates requested.

Bernard Camm, aged 66 years, a veteran of the civil war and a substantial farmer residing east of Pisgah, died Saturday evening of pneumonia. Decedent was born in Sheffield, England, and came to this country with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sam'l Camm, when 2 years of age. He resided near Jacksonville at the out-break of the civil war and was a non-commissioned officer in Company D, 101st Ill. Vol., where he served with honorable distinction. In 1869 he was married to Miss Mary Filkin, who survives. Three children also survive: Oliver R., Samuel and Mrs. Edgar Curry, all of the county. One brother, William Camm, residing in Hazen, Ark., and three sisters, Mrs. James Davenport and Mrs. Ivan Wood, of this county, and Mrs. B. Tankersley, of Kansas City, Mo., also survive. Shortly after the war Mr. Camm settled on a farm at Rantoul, Champaign county, where he resided until nine years ago, when he removed to Morgan county,. He was a successful man in every way and leaves behind him a precious memory. The funeral will be held Monday morning at 11 o'clock at the Union Baptist Church, with interment in Diamond Grove cemetery. (Jacksonville Daily Journal) Jacksonville, Illinois April 2, 1905
