Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
Earlier today, someone else on this list posted a personal email from me, to this list. I had no knowledge of him doing this until it came through in my email, and this person appeared to be making an example of my email to him, as a reason why we should not help others. I am a Christian person and will help anyone I can anytime I can. The letter I sent to this person was not meant in a derogatory way, I merely stated a fact. I am on so many lists, I hardly have enough time to get through all my email, and I answered his email as briefly as possible and went on reading my other emails. I don't want this matter to have a negative effect on my membership to this list.

Has your friend checked Switchboard's or AT&T's web sites? If someone has
a listed phone number, you should be able to find them in one of these

A close friend asked me to post a query looking for Glenn L. Campbell. My
friend served with Mr. Campbell in the Army in Vietnam. He believes Mr.
Campbell was from New York or Pennsylvania. I have his entire SSN - the last
four digits are 3521. If you believe you may know this person, I will be
happy to forward to you or Mr. Campbell the information on my friend - then
let Mr. Campbell decide whether or not to get in touch. Thank you.
Has John Campbell, born approximately 1720 at Kirkbean in

his long career served
for four years as Governor of Newfoundland.

Submitted for your approval:
from Seumas MacManus, "The Story of the Irish Race" (1921):
"There are scarcely more than a dozen Norse place names on the whole map of
Ireland and these are mostly on or near the sea coast, while there are over a
thousand in middle and northern England. This is one of the surest signs
that there was no real conquest or occupation of the country."
The Danes and the Norse tried for three centuries to conquer Ireland to no
avail, Britain capitulated in a matter of months...

According to my great-aunt who sent me this info, my Daniel's middle name was Payton. I don't have any dates or locations on him, but he had a son named Elijah Albert Campbell (2/2/1870-5/4/1940, he died in KY), that is all I know. Do you have anything that would connect us?
Hello, I am Tammye Campbell-Hobgood. I am researching my Campbell ggg grandfather Daniel Payton Campbell (??-??). He married Susan Lott and they had the following children (Alice, Hattie, James, Lucy, Nanny, and Elijah Albert (1870-1940), my gg grandfather.

I rec'd the following answer to my inquiry:
If you want to pass this on to the List in case it is of interest to others,
that would be fine. I have some new software which means that, until I can
douse some function, any postings I try to the List end up as hyroglyphics.
You ask why some counties use 'shire'. In Scotland there has been a custom
of using 'shire' when the name of the county seat was the same as that of
the county so as to distinguish the two. For example, Argyll was known as
the County of Argyll since the county seat was Dunoon, while Perth (whose
seat was the town of Perth) was known as Perthshire. Inverness was called
Inverness-shire, Aberdeen was Aberdeenshire, and so on. You will sometimes
see Argyllshire used when it needs to be clarified that in the same text it
should not be mistaken for Argyll as in the title of the Campbell Chief. So
if one said "Argyll came home to Inveraray in Argyll" it would be normal to
say "...to Inveraray in Argyllshire."
With Ross and Cromarty, Ross is sometimes called Ross-shire but normally
used only to be Ross and Cromarty.
So my impression is that the word 'shire' was attached - at least in more
recent times - as a means of clarifying which place was meant - town or
county, and also which name was meant, title or county.

I am confused by the two designations in British & sometimes, Irish counties;
early on they are known as shires and currently, mostly called counties.
References, such as Burke's, use both almost interchangeably. Also, why is
Somerset, for example anciently called a shire and Essex, Surrey, and others,
without that suffix? Is Yorkshire, for example, today "county Yorkshire" and
was it originally just YorkSHIRE? I know that in Scotland it is still
FifeSHIRE. (the heads of the shires were called Reeves or Shire Reeves
which was eventually corrupted into Sheriff). Is there some time period when
the change from shires to county took place?
Can anyone help!.

I went to the site and found the woman's shirt. I have a very old book that
shows many of the Campbell Tartans. This pattern most closely matches "The
Clan Urquhart". The Black Watch pattern is similar to the Clan Urquart -
blue/green - no red, but very dark. Hope this helps.
