Double Funeral Held for Camps

Hundreds Attend Last Rites for Prominent Couple
Victims of Georgia Auto Crash

Double funeral services for the late Mr. and Mrs. Seymour G. Camp of 19 Grand Street, victims of an automobile accident in Georgia, were held from the home Saturday afternoon. The residence was filled to capacity and a large group gathered outside.
Dr. E. J. Farley, pastor emeritus of the First Baptist church, officiated at the joint services, in which the Oneonta Elks lodge assisted with its ritual. The bodies were placed in the Plains cemetery vault for interment in the spring.
Bearers for both were Charles D. Townsend, A. J. Dewar, M. G. Keenan, Daniel Krothe, Daniel Franklin, Sr., and Harry Butts, all close friends of the prominent couple.
Hundreds of floral tributes attested to the esteem in which Mr. and Mrs. Camp were hled. Among the groups sending flowers were Keenan's, Bob and Dan's restaurant, Oneonta Credit bureau, Oneonta lodge of Elks, Horton's of Albany and a group of eight tenants.
Included among those from out of town attending the services were Mr. and Mrs. George Wright and son of New York city and Daytona Beach, Fla., the former a sister of Mr. Camp; Mrs. Charles Stenson, a sister of Mr. Camp, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Morris of Gilbertsville; Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Stenson of Binghamton, the former a nephew of Mr. Camp; Edgar Rowe and Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Cose, a niec of Mrs. Camp, and son of Sidney; Clyde Rifenbark of Schenectady, a nephew of Mrs. Camp; Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Angell of Mt. Upton, the latter a niece of Mrs. Camp; Loren Rifenbark of Sidney Center and Eric Rifenbark of Binghamton, brothers of Mrs. Camp.
Mrs. Camp was instantly killed a week ago today, and Mr. Camp followed her in death a few days later as the result of injuries which they received when their car was struck by another near Swainsboro, Ga.

Addendum: In checking the 1930 via, Mrs. Camp's name was Edna E. (Rifenbark) and her mother was with them on the 1920 census. Mary R. Rifenbark was 78. Mr. Camp's birth date is listed as Nov. 1863 and I estimate hers as 1879 from the census ages. His occupation was listed as auto dealer.
