OBITUARY ~ Dr. MATT CAMP
Dr. Matt Camp [Matt Americus Camp] of Kellerton was instantly killed Sunday afternoon in an auto
accident which occurred about four miles north of Kellerton.
Lewis Rominger was driving the car and as they neared a bridge, a horse went
in their way. Mr. Rominger turned the car quickly aside and went off the
bridge down a steep embankment of about fifteen feet. Dr. Camp's skull was
badly crushed and death was instantaneous. The driver was slightly injured and
went to a nearby farmhouse for help. The body was taken to his office.
Camp was about 60 years old, unmarried, and had been a practicing physician in
Kellerton for many years.
NOTE: Dr. Matt Camp was born January, 4, 1850, Pike
County, Illinois. He was interred at Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton, Iowa.
