Just starting my family tree and am looking for some information about my
great grandparents. Ora A. Campbell died June 27, 1974 and his wife,
Grizella Van Zant died May 16, 1969. They were living in Eaton, OH at the
time of their deaths.
Their children were Carrie Ruth Campbell born 1903
Guy Orville Campbell born 1904 (my grandfather)
Annis Louise Campbell born 1907
Charlotte Molly Campbell born 1909
Marjorie Leonette born 1911
David Alexander Campbell born 1918

Thanks for any help.
I found a web page on the net that I think lots of people will love. When
you type in the town and the state, it will tell you the county that the
town is in, as well as the long and lat of the town.
Good luck everyone.
I am searching for information on my grandfather George CAMPBELL and his wife
Agnes. They lived in Liverpool (Bootle) in the early 1900's and had my father
George on May 1, 1912. About 3 years later they emmigrated to Montreal, where
at least one more child was born (Robert).
George Sr. was a railway porter in England
If this rings any bells, please contact me!

I have posted before regarding my two seperate Campbell lines, but this
weekend I came across a whole little book about the descendants of Peter
Campbell of Scotland.
Peter's son, Peter Campbell II, came to Canada as a cabin boy at age 12
(1818), somehow he got to London, Ontario and in the process married Betsy
Mitchell. They had four children:
Nancy Campbell b. 1848
Alexander Campbell b. 1850
William Campbell b. 1852
John Campbell b. 1854 - abandoned family for Alaskan Gold Rush
was last heard from in Point
Some of the children may have been born in Wisconsin, but by the mid-1870's
they were in Western Michigan, Newaygo County, Ashland Township. Alexander,
William & John all had children that raised families in or near Ashland
If you have Campbell's in the MI area and would like me to look through this
book, which contains hundreds of descendants, please let me know.
Well!!! The response has been overwhelming so far in your requests. I've gotten 21 so far, and counting! Not to worry -- I've been copying everything to a Word document so that I can print everything out and take it with me when I go.
I tried to go on Tuesday, but my mission failed due to a friend having a birthday party that I forgot about until I saw her. OOpps!! =) Glad I remembered.
I will try to make it over there sometime next week, and if not then....well, my vacation from work starts on August 11th, I know that I can go any day of that week. Thanks for your patience, I will do my best to get back with all of you that have replied to me.
And of course.....those of you on the list that have no clue what I'm talking about....either read through your past dated messages for one from me titled "LDS Family History Library" and that'll tell you everything, or to make it shorter..... I will be making a trip to the above mentioned library and offered to do my best to help the folks that aren't in Utah out with their genealogical "roadblocks." Please keep in mind that I'm going for myself, too.....<grin>. Please keep requests short. My Word document is already onto 7 pages!! WHEW!! =)
You can reply to me at the e-mail address under my name. =)
Talk to you later,
Sandy Campbell =)
Having been off the mail list for a vacation, thought I would repost my
James Campbell is said to have been the son of a Scottish immigrant to New
Jersey. He married Temperance Bradford 3-25-1822 in Salem Co. NJ, and he
probably had a previous marriage as a son, James Young Campbell (my
ggrandfather) was born i 1819 in NJ.
According to family history the elder James "moved to near Dayton, OH", and
I found James and Temperance in Warren Co. OH. where they both died and are
The object now of my research is findign the marriage and first wife of
James before 1819 in NJ.
Thanks for listening.

I hope you can stand one more Shillelagh comment.
There is one use of the Shillelagh that I haven't seen in this august forum.
There is an Irish song I learned in Kerry Patch (St. Louis, MO) more than half
a century ago. I've forgotten a lot of the words but, the song was about the
Shillelagh "me father brought from Ireland." One of the lines in the song goes
"and many's the time he used it on me, for to make me understand."
That doesn't need any embellishment.

I am looking for Campbell researchers searching for records of ancestors

Please e-mail me if you have an interest. Thanks, Don Campbell

I visited the LDS Family History Center in Salt Lake City a few weeks ago

to check while you're there is film of Family Group Sheet submissions that
haven't been computerized. There are three film rolls of Campbell Sheets.
