My talented co-blogger brought up the Black Camel of Death at her family Thanksgiving dinner. (Isn't it amazing the things we genealogists like to talk about?) And she got some surprising information.
Apparently there was quite a popular poem about the Black Camel of Death. Sandy's mother and mother-in-law both remembered it. The In-Law could practically recite the whole thing. Back in the early 1900's ( I won't say how early) apparently children memorized it in school. (Boy, had school changed by the time I attended.)
So, now we are trying to come up with the original poem. Any help would be appreciated.
