To all interested Campbell family researchers:
I have recently established a web site devoted to the history of the
Southwest Virginia Campbells, i. e., the families of both White David and
Black David. Although there is still much more info to be added, I have
finally published the contents of my monograph on the family of Black
David to the site, as a series of mini-essays.
Please take a look and give me any comments you might have as to how to
improve the site. The URL is:

I am researching the Samuel Hand line and we have found that he married
a Mary Campbell who was the daughter of james Campbell born about 1740
and he died in Abbeville co., SC. His wife was margaret Crawford, born
about 1745, her date of death unknown.
Samuel married to Mary Capbell about 1792 in South Carolina and she died
5 September 1858.
Is there anyone on this site that related to this line? Samuel James
Hand was my ggggrandfather and they were the parents of Samuel Hand, Jr.
that married to Violet Wilson Jones in Warren Co., TN.
Any information on the above Campbells would be greatly appreciated.

Lee Ann sent a message to this list last April... I think
she may be related to the same Campbell line I have.
My line is
Ellis Campbell b 1804 in VA; d 1881 in Iron Coutny MO.
Married Elizabeth YOUNG (Cobb given by son on death cert of
sister). One of Ellis & Elizabeths sons broke his hip while
working for Mine LaMotte (cutting timber), our family book
says he broke his pelvis.. also show that this sons (James
Mehlander Campbell b 1836 in AL) first wife Nancy Welborn
died in 1874 & he married for second time to Sarah Jane
Sutton (said to be part Cherokee or Blackfoot).
James M had a brother named Wiley (Wesley, Will) Campbell.
I have been in contact with another researcher (Donna Stock)
whos ancester was Landa Wiley Campbell. I have Donna's
family info as well as a couple of other MO Campbell
researchers. Trying to locate the connection between these
lines... to many things that point to a family connection...
I believe that the family chose opposite sides during the
Any with info on Campbells in MO who can help or add to the
heap... would love to share with you.

WILEY CAMPBELL was my great grandfather. I have been unable
him in Indiana, although I, too, was told he was born in
the Wabash River. I am told that WILEY had brothers who
opposite sides in the Civil War. He worked building the
Railroad at Granden, Mo., and was a stone mason during the construction
of Southeast Missouri State University. A large stone fell
on him and
crushed his pelvis. I believe WILEY's wife was Sarah Elizabeth
Williams. I am told she was part Indian and still spoke the
She did die in her 30's, and the eldest son, Andy (Milton
away from home when his father remarried. He lived with
Henson (no relation, I am told) and Henson and his wife
WILEY'S daughter) brought up all of WILEY and Sarah's children.
I don't believe LIZZIE CAMPBELL married Bill Henson. I
married a man named BROWN and they opened gypsum mines near
They had seven sons. Although the name GRANT CAMPBELL
appears in the
census records, that son was actually called LEE. Either
there was some
disagreement over the Civil War or they were hedging their bets.
WILEY seems to be a dead end. I can't find any trace of him

I would like any information on the families of the
following Campbell's taken from Cumberland County VA federal
census records for 1810:
The census headings are Free White Males (FWM), Free White
Females (FWF), All other free persons, except Indians, not
taxed, Slaves. The FWM & FWF have lines for: to 10; to 16;
to 26; to 45; 45 & up, for a total of 12 possible numbers.
If a heading has no number I have used a "-" to fill the space.
Below is from 1810 Cumberland Co VA census:
Geo Campbell 1--1---1----
Morgan Campbell 1--1-1-1----
Elijah Campbell 2--1-2-1----
Elias Campbell 1---1-12-1--
I am looking for parents of Ellis Campbell b 1804 in VA.
The above all have male under 10 who could be Ellis. If you
know anything of the above families that can rule them out
for a son named Ellis, or any spouce & children info, would
like to know of it.
I have only two pages from this census film. The census was
alphabetized by first letter of surname... so one can't tell
who the neighbors were.. Also this was page 22&23 of census film.

I don't know if my Thomas has any connection with the PA Campbell's that
have recently been discussed on the list, since he is a little later in
time but some of the place names match.
I am looking for the parents of Thomas J. Campbell, born 2/11/1825 in
Chambersberg PA. I have no documents that give his parent's names, so I
am at a standstill. Thomas was married on 12/12/1855 in Fountain Green,
IL to Francis M. Beers (b. 10/21/1834 in Hobart NY and d. 1929 in
Canton, OH?). Thomas died on 6/3/1899 in Jacksonville, IL.
Any information or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

To John Hester & list...
John, as you know Grace Hay left a will, so she exists...
but not sure she was wife of John Campbell... did the will
show her 1st husband as James Campbell (or was he a son?).
I sent the copy of the will to you & if I recall correctly,
wasn't one of her sons a David who was not "well" and she
left means for his care? The question is probably if anyone
knows if Grace Campbell Hay was once known as Grisell
Campbell...??? Also, if I recall correctly, Hay was also a
married name... so its unkn what Graces maiden name really
was???? I don't have the will copy in front of me.. but
will take another look at it when I can & get back to you.
If I get a free evening for the library I will also go and
see if I can't find other info on Grace & Grisell if I
can... our local public library has a nice collection of
older books & films. Margie in CA

Maggie Campbell, unmarried daughter, 14, born Maybole
William Campbell, son, 12, born Maybole
Frederick Gibson, brother in law, unmarried, 37, born Dalrymple

From memorial inscription, Dalrymple cemetery: Hugh died London 29.3.1913 aged 79 and Agnes Campbell died London 11.6.1915 aged 89 (typo from transcription?), daughter Marion 20.3.1882 aged 21, son in law Charles Herbert Wood 20.8.1895, aged 36, daugther Jane 3.9.1937 aged 78.
I have info on ancestry of Campbell line. Would be interested to hear from anyone who has info on descendants of this family.
John Campbell was suppose to have married a Grace Hay; however, there is no
documentation to prove that Grace Hay ever existed.
Does anyone have any documentation on Grace Hay?
I have documentation that John Campbell married Grisel Campbell and
documentation on their arrival from Scotland.
Does anyone have any information on a Charles Campbell who died in Chester
Co. PA in 1758?
Someone shared a copy of a will probated Dec 29, 1758, Will book #4, pg
Charles names his wife, Rachel, daughter Martha, son Michael, son William,
and son James. He leaves son James his house and land in Conegogig. (I
think this is in Cumberland/Franklin Co., does anyone know of this?) Also
named is a grandson, Charles.
I descend from a William Campbell, b.ca. 1702, died July 10, 1783 in Peters
Twp. Franklin co. PA. A survey of land in 1749 gives William a neighbor,
Does anyone have information on father, Charles, or descendancy of son
James, or Michael. ?
