    Gender Female 
    History She disliked her maiden name, Getsinger. Always went by Camp (which appears on daughter's birth certificate). Must have disliked Elizabeth also--Betty always thought her first name was Laura. Met her first husband, a telephone lineman, while she was working as an operator in Central City. He died of peritonitis when son Jack was about two. According to Vera, daughter of her first marriage, Laura married Samuel Houston Smith McAdams in Lodgepole, Nebraska in 1914 or 1915. They were divorced in 1922. Laura married and was divorced a third time in 1924. After her second divorce (third husband), she resumed using the name McAdams.
    Because she worked on Sunday, Laura took Betty to church at night. They went several times to the "Christian" church in Grand Island, and once to the Holy Rollers. Betty remembers being terrified. Laura came to live with Betty and Bob in Washington, D.C. in 1949 after Betty contracted phlebitis as a complication of child birth. During this time she visited the Alfred Ames family in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, close to New York. Betty remembers hearing of other relatives from Olean, New York. She loved to crochet and liked victorian antiques.
