appeared, not long since, in the public prints, that PHINEAS CAMP, a Revolutionary Patriot, was dead, aged ninety-nine years and six months. The writer of this exit says: "Temperance in eating and drinking, and avoiding medicine &c., left him in the enjoyment of his faculties, in full energy, during a long life." He took no medicine until after he was eighty years old. From this fact alone, it is possible that if he had taken no medicine at all, he might have lived to be as old as Moses, one hundred and twenty years. { RLDS Church History, Vol. 21, #21, History of Joseph Smith, City of Nauvoo, Illinois, Sept. 15, 1843 Whole No. 81, page 325}

1744-45, January 13, baptized by the Rev. Nathan Chauncey in Durham Ct. The Phineas Camp
family home in Durham is a land mark and still stands. The family lived there until after 1790 when they moved to Whitesboro, New York. By profession Phineas was a Presbyterian minister of the Gospel until his death in 1843. Connecticut had a "State Religion" until 1812. if you were not a Congregationalist you got to pay higher taxes and were refused public office.

1777, Sept 16, took the oath of Freemen in Durham.

According to a date carved on an interior wooden beam, the three-bay Phineas Camp House, on Main Street in Durham, was built in 1758. The property, including the house, a merchant shop and a barn, was sold to Phineas Camp in 1785 by his brother, Elnathan Camp, who had in turn bought the then new house from their father, John Camp, Jr., in 1760. In 1794, Phineas Camp sold the property to Phineas Squire, who then sold it back to Elnathan Camp. In 1808, Elnathan’s son, Sylvester Camp, sold it to Deacon Seth Seward, a wealthy shoemaker. The house then passed through many owners in the nineteenth century, during which time a Greek Revival addition was built on the southeast corner.
