Michael DeCAMP
Alma JOHNSON
Husband:  Michael DeCAMP
Birth:  4 Sep 1817, NY probably in Onondaga Co., NY
Death:  14 Aug 1885, South Bend, St. Joseph Co., IN

Alma is said to have died 10 Jan 1880 in Dallas, IA, but she is living in Nebraska for the 1880 census on 1 Jun 1880.  So, is this death date and place wrong, or have I made a bad connection?
