I have this information from my cousin who is a granddaughter of Gazelle Camp Bowman:
"Gazelle's parents were: Rufus and Ella (Ellis) Camp. They owned a mercantile store in Selma, KS (also in SE Kansas). Ella's parents were: John and Martha (Jones) Ellis. Like so many women of that era, Martha (born in 1838, in Greeneville, Tenn., married at age 15) endured hardships losing 2 husbands, first one to disease (two children), second one in the Civil War (one child), before marrying a third time, moving from Tennessee to SE Kansas in 1868, and having 8 more children! She was only 73 at death in 1911, in SE Kansas."
