At the risk of sounding sarcastic, is there no one else looking for
their Canadian Campbell roots? I am trying to locate any info on my
grandfather's brother, Charles. He was born 1889. Believe that his
nickname was Buster. He is rumoured to have gone to the U.S. but no one
is really sure where or when. All trace has been lost. Can someone help?
I have several other Canadian Campbells for which I am searching
ancestors and/or descendants. am willing to share info if it looks

Hello, I was wondering if you could tell me if you had any
information in regards to an island off the coast of Scotland that
was once owned by Campbells but was sold to the British when the
Campbells moved to North America. The problem is that I don't believe
that these Campbells were ever part of a clan. The Campbells came to
North America and settled in Cape Breton and also founded Campbell's
Creek which is a small community on the West coast of Newfoundland.
Any information you have or if you could direct me to someone who
would know would be gratly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I am finally back. We had a wonderful CAmpbell - Bethell reunion on the
coast of Oregon, even after the lost of one of the Campbell clan, Ray

reunion to continue and not be cancelled.
A wonderful time was had by all. Have returned even more determined to get
some of the Campbell data written down and distributed to the family.
Will be very busy for the next week but wanted to let you know I will be

Elizabeth Campbell and husband, Joseph McMaken. McMakens actually settled

Here's hoping cousins are out there,
Hello to all Campbell's out there!
I have recently found several more cousins and the father of my oldest
known Campbell, Andrew J. Campbell. I found out his father was James
Criswell Campbell who was probably born in Alabama around 1793. He
married Clora Warbington about 1825 in Wilcox Co., Alabama. He died on
December 4 1854 in Mt. Selman, Cherokee Co., Texas. My thinking is that
James C. Campbell's father, who so far is unknown, was born in Scotland
and came over and had his children here. Does anyone recognize these
names? Where in the world would I start looking to see if this man came
over on a ship? I still need James C. Campbell's father's name before I
start searching, obviously. That's my update. I hope someone can help
hope someone will recognize these Ontario names:
Ellen Louise Victoria Cole(nee Campbell)b 1866
Magdalena Sarah Agnes Fowler(nee Campbell)
Ethel Irene Campbell b. 1896
Anyone have a Patrick Campbell in their tree? (1795-1857, Ireland)married
Esther Campbell, 1826
He is my "dead" end.
How about Thomas Bone Campbell? 1867-1936
Colin Carey Campbell, December 23, 1904?
anyone have the surname Cort in their tree or an Ellen Mitchell of
There isn't much to go on, but I'm still trying to find Mary Campbell b 1811
in County Down, Ireland. I think she had a brother James Campbell who came
to the US in 1832 and a brother William came to the US in 1835 James had
parents Hugh Campbell and Elizabeth Finley. James and William both left
Ireland from Belfast and went to Quebec, Canada. James went first to Genesse
County, NY and then to Kalamazoo Co., MI. Can anyone give me suggestions?
This is my Campbell line thanks to many people who have helped me. I hope
this will help someone else.
