Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1870 U.S. Census for Abraham Camp Household in Saginaw, Michigan

This weeks Tuesday's Treasure is the 1870 United States Census record for the Abraham Camp household in Saginaw, Saginaw County, Michigan:

The entry for the Abraham Camp household is:

The extracted information for Abraham and his wife is:

*  Abraham Camp, age 74, male, white, a laborer, personal property worth $200, born in Canada, father of foreign birth, mother of foreign birth, a male citizen above age 21.
*  Suffrany Camp - age 62, female, white, keeping house, born in France, father of foreign birth, mother of foreign birth.

The source citation for the Abraham Camp household is:

1870 United States Federal Census, Saginaw County, Michigan, population schedule, Saginaw Ward 5, page 397A, dwelling #56, family #59, Abraham Camp household, digital image, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M593, Roll 702.

I am very sure that this is Abraham Kemp (1795-after 1881) and his second wife, Sephrona (Goddard) (Sheltraw) Kemp (1808-1896).  They were in the 1851  Canada West census in Ameliasburg, Prince Edward County, Ontario (she as Sephrona Kemp age 44 born in France) and in the 1861 Canada West census (she as Ann Kemp, age 55 born in Canada West).  

Abraham Kemp and his first wife, Sarah Fletcher, are my third great-grandparents, through their son, James Abraham Kemp (1831-1902) who married (1) Mary Jane Sovereen (1840-1874) in 1861.
