History of Indian Territory
Lewis Publishing Company 1901
WILLIAM WALLACE CAMPBELL, M.D.
Dr. William Wallace Campbell, who is engaged in the practice of medicine in
the town of Campbell, was born in the Saline district of the Cherokee nation
on the 8th of March, 1836, his parents being John M. and Eliza H. (Holt)
Campbell. The father was a white man and the mother a Cherokee and they were
natives on Tennessee, emigrating to the Indian Territory in 1833. The
paternal grandfather of our subject was a native of Scotland and the maternal
grandfather, Eliphaz Holt, was a white man. His father died in 1875, while
his mother passed away in 1878. They were the parents of the following named:
Margaret A., who married James Scott and died in Wisconsin; Frances, who
became the wife of George Kiddy and resides near Vian, Indian Territory; Mary
J., who married Thomas Salone and died in Texas; Sarah, who became the wife of
George Mitchell and died in the Sequoyah district of the Cherokee nation;
George, who died in the Illinois district; Lucian, who died in infancy in the
Flint district; Hugh, who was killed during the Civil war by the Cherokee
Indians allied with the Confederate forces; and John, who died in Sequoyah, at
the age of thirty-five years.
Dr. Campbell, whose name introduces this record, attended the common schools
of the nation and was graduated in the Cherokee Male Seminary, at Tahlequah,
about 1858. He subsequently entered the office of Dr. J.P. Evans in
Tahlequah, and later pursued a course of lectures in the medical department of
the University of Nashville, in Tennessee, being graduated in that school with
the class of 1861. He served as assistant surgeon in the Seventeenth South
Carolina regiment, entering the service April 10, 1863, and serving until the
close of the war. He was present at the surrender of General Lee. His people
were refugees in Texas at the time of the trouble between the North and the
South, and here joined his family in that state, but the same year, 1865, they
returned to the Cherokee nation.
>From 1861 until he entered the army Dr. Campbell was engaged in the practice
of his profession, and upon returning to the nation he opened an office at
Webber's Falls, near his present home. Since that time he has engaged in
practice and has enjoyed a large and lucrative business. He was well prepared
for his chosen calling and has kept abreast with the times through the perusal
of medical journals. A man of excellent business ability, he has not confined
his efforts to one line, for, in addition to his professional labors he has
carried on merchandising, farming, and cattle-raising, and still superintends
his farming interests and his town property.
The Doctor married in 1866, Mrs. Mary E. Morgan, a Cherokee, becoming his
wife. She was the widow of Rufus Morgan. Five children have been born to
them, namely: Eliphaz, who was born February 8, 1867, and died March 15, 1887;
Selina Huntington, who was born February 12, 1869, and died January 2, 1882;
William L., who was born April 18.1871; Hugh Walter, born January 24, 1874,
and died October 27, 1899; Nancy Emeline, born June 14, 1877, married December
7, 1895, to Phillip S. Wiem, of Campbell, by whom she has three children- -
Inez, born September 5, 1896; Even Hugh, born September 20, 1898; and Mary,
born in September 1899. Of the above family, William L. Campbell married
Susan Waggoner and they became the parents of two children, one of whom died
in infancy, the other being Hurbert, born in December, 1896.
The Doctor's first wife died September 28, 1888, a the age of fifty-six years,
her birth having occurred October 17, 1832. he was again married September
12, 1891, his second union being with Mary E. Stegall, widow of Seldon A.
Stegall, who died in January, 1883. She is a daughter of William D. and
Martha W. (Junkins) Box, the former a native of Missouri and the latter of
Virginia. Mrs. Campbell was first married to James Shanks, by whom she had
five children, four of whom are living. She afterward married John Cottner
and they had five children, three of whom are living, namely: Elizabeth Emma,
a graduate of the Presbyterian Mission of Tahlequah, and is now a successful
teacher; James and Edward, who are attending school at Tahlequah.
Dr. Campbell is a member of the Masonic fraternity and of the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows. The greater part of his life has been passed in the
district where he has made his home and he is a well-informed man, who, in the
successful practice of his profession, is meeting with a good financial
WILLIAM L. CAMPBELL
William L. Campbell, who is residing in the Illinois district of the Indian
Territory, at Campbell Post Office, was born at the place which is still his
home April 18, 1871, and is a son of Dr. W.W. and Mary E. (Holt) Campbell. He
pursued his education in the schools of the nation, and, after arriving at
years of maturity, he was married on the 8th of September, 1895, to Miss Susan
Waggoner, of Campbell, a daughter of Lafayette and Ellen J. Waggoner. Two
children were born unto them, but the younger, born in 1898, died in infancy.
The other son is Hurbert, who was born December 27, 1896. Mr. Campbell
devotes his time and attention to looking after his agricultural interests and
his land is under a good state of cultivation.

Hi Fellow Campbells!!
I am brand new to the list, having joined just moments ago. I have been
researching my family for many years and became most stymied when I got into
the Campbell branch.
I am searching for a link beyond Alexander Campbell (my gg-grandfather) of
Virginia who married an Elizabeth Davis of Tennessee, and who settled in Bath
County, KY about 1820 until the 1840's. At that time he moved his family to
Brown County, Ohio. I have not been able to determine his parents or her
parents. Is he or she in your linkages? I do have information that he was
born in 1785 or 1786, that Elizabeth was born in 1799-1800, and that their
first son, (my g-grandfather) was born in Bath County KY in 1828. Thanks!

I have a Campbell descendant with the odd given name of "Polonzo." Could
this have been a stab at Alonzo? The family was literate, so I doubt they
would have made such a major error in naming their child. Has anyone run
across Polonza or Polonzo as a surname or given name in the Campbells?
I'd appreciate any ideas on this.
I 've been trying to respond to an inquiry from John Campbell dated April
1997 regarding a James Campbell who lived in Westmoreland Co. Pennsylvania
in 1760. Is the e-mail address jcamp161.msmisp.com current? My messages
aren't going through.
Dear Ontario & Campbell Lists:
I made a mistake when I wrote about Lorenzo last night, and I
apologize to subscribers of both lists.
The discussion on the Campbell list earlier this year was about
Alonzo -- not Lorenzo. I confused the two names when I received
Deb Mann's first post on the Ontario List, and I should not have
weighed in until I checked my own records. (In fact, my primary
database contains five Alonzos and only one Lorenzo.)
But it's been interesting! I received nine messages overnight.
Some went to the entire Ontario list, some to the Campbell list,
and some only to me. Here are some highlights:
(a) Gord Calder reminds us that Lorenzo is the young romantic
character who elopes with Jessica in Shakespeare's Merchant of
(b) Kim Campbell says that Lorenzo is a character in the "Jalna
series by Mazo de la Roche [which was] set in southern Ontario
and covered a period from 1850 to 1950 in Canada."
(c) Jack Butler, Mark Reed, and John Campbell are all aware that
as many as 20,000 babies (apparently mostly in the US South) were
named Lorenzo Dow for a famous Methodist preacher. Mark refers
to an article about Dow [1777-1834] at
http://www.acun.com/dentons/Lorenzo%20Dow.htm. John refers to
another article at
(d) Deb Mann has three Lorenzos in a family named Defields, one
of whom (born in 1853) had a twin named Alphonso.
(e) Jane Hemlin reports a line of Lorenzos in a family with the
Irish name of McCrea, the first of whom (born in 1855) was called
(f) Wendy in Arizona adds "how about Alonzo? I've found this in
a family line loaded with James, William, John, etc. Seems out
of place as well... Any insight appreciated."

Malena's stone was VERY hard to read, so that might not be her

Dear Deb, Virginia, Nancy & others interested in "Lorenzo:"
I think you'll find that almost anyone with a sizable database of 19th
century ancestors in the US or Canada will have several Lorenzos. (I
have at least four in my files.)
Deb's question to the Ontario genealogy list (copied below) was raised
about nine months ago on the Campbell list. Several subscribers con-
tributed names and guesses, but none knew exactly why a lot of Anglo-
Saxon families choose to bestow this name. As I recall, no one even
knew why a given individual their own family was given this name.
Probably the best theory was advanced by Diarmid Campbell (editor of the
Jorunal of the Clan Campbell Society of North America). He surmized
that Lorenzo was a character in an English-language novel or poem which
was widely popular in the two countries over a period of several years
and that this in turn inspired a minor fad in using the rather exotic
name for the children of Anglo-Saxon families. If so, no one (so far as
I recall) was able to identify the specific work in which the name
appeared or the extent to which it received its popularity.
If subscribers to either list would send me the names plus birth dates
and places of all Lorenzos in their files, I would be happy to put to-
gether a "Lorenzo database." If we collectively amassed, say, a hun-
dred different Lorenzos, I would expect that we could at least conclude
the time period during which the name was originally popular (as opposed
to its being repeated within individual families), and we might be able
to discern variations in its distribution, either geographically or
within families of different national origins.
Of course, if anyone could find a fictional Lorenzo and identify the
work in which he appeared, that would be a real coup!

Re: Lorenzo as a first name.
I may be mistaken, but wasn't Lorenzo a character in the Jalna series
written by Mazo de la Roche?
The Jalna series was set in southern Ontario and covered a period
from 1850 to 1950 in Canada.
