I am open to all possibilities as to who JOHN WILLIAM and LAVINA
CAMPBELL's families are and where in Alabama they lived. I just don't
know any place names for them. Your information is the first that even
comes close to identifying them.
An older cousin told me that JOHN WILLIAM & LAVINA had a family of 16
sons and no daughters. I only have the names or initials of the first
10 sons. For a long time I assumed that my gr-grandfather, HENRY KING
CAMPBELL, was born in Tennessee; that's what the 1880 U.S. census led me
to believe but I now think I found him and his family in the 1870 U.S.
census for Corsicana, Navarro Co, TX, and in that census he and his wife
are both recorded as born in AL. I see Madison and Jackson counties in
AL are just over the line from Tennessee. Maybe that's also a good
clue. The names of JOHN WILLIAM & LAVINA CAMPBELL's sons were:
 Anderson CAMPBELL, b. 22 Oct 1829
 W.K. CAMPBELL, b. 28 Sep 1830
 Jethero CAMPBELL, b. 13 Feb 1834
 J.R. CAMPBELL, b.30 Jun 1836
 Samuel CAMPBELL, b. 2 Dec 1837
 J.M. CAMPBELL, b. 12 Jan 1841
 Ben F. CAMPBELL, b. 31 Mar 1843
 Henry King CAMPBELL, b. 14 Nov 1846 (my gr-grandfathr)
 Jasper N. CAMPBELL, b. 11 Nov 1850
 Felix P. CAMPBELL, b.????
I understand that my gr-gr-grandfather, JOHN WILLIAM, went by the
nickname of "BILL" CAMPBELL.
With this many names to work with, surely I can turn up at least one
relative on this CAMPBELL-L list! Thanks for your response, Richard!
What part of Alabama are we looking for? I have some info that may
or may not help, I have a map drawn up by a gentelman, of Madison and
Jackson Co, and the Campbells that were living at various times on each
side of these borders. I notice That there is a Lavina married to a
William Campbell On the Madison Co. side near New Market it looks like
it says 1849, then on another map I see at a different time 1798 a
Lavina also Married to a William it looks like her Maiden name is
Methvin and in 1831 I also see a James S. Methvin on the Jackson Co.
side right over the border. If this sounds like the right area this
Campbell could very well be related to me, it is very hard to tie this
all in, there have been several of us researching this area for years
and haven't had any success as of yet. Let me know all you can on this
GOOD LUCK and HAPPY HUNTING.

Does anyone have a LAVINA W. CAMPBELL on their family tree? CAMPBELL
would be her married name; her surname is unknown. She married a JOHN
WILLIAM CAMPBELL about 1829 and was living in Alabama in 1846 when my
great-grandfather, HENRY CAMPBELL, was born. JOHN WILLIAM & LAVINA were
my gr-gr-grandparents. Who were their parents and siblings?

I would bet on it Bill. People today have a tough time spelling the name
"Campbell"--here in TN it is not unusual for them to spell Campbell as
"Cambel, Cambal, Cambell. . ." so it is an easy stretch to believe in older
times, with fewer written references that entire family names could have been
changed with a misspelling. I would certainly follow the other spellings in
search of ancestors until I was satisfied that I was on the wrong track.
I need to find some one who has a James Harrison (aka Harry) Campbell in
their line. Harry was born in 1840 and married Martha Ann Parsons in
Bedford Co., Tn. I have much info on his line from 1870 down to present but
need desperately to find his parents, names unknown. Harry and Martha Ann
are both buried in Willow Mount Cemetery in Shelbyville, Tn. Martha's
parents were Parsons with a Fisher Background. Given names were Walter,
Alexander, James, Jacob, George and others. Thank you.
I think it is safe to say you have found a home on this list.

My congresswoman has sent me the following reply to my inquiry on the above
< On February 25, 1999, the Federal Communications Commission ruled that
consumers who continue to access the Internet by dialing a seven-digit
number will not incur long distance charges. * * * *
Additionally, I am unaware of any bill introduced in Congress that would
increase phone bill charges for Internet connections. However, if a bill is
introduced, I will not support it. >
Apparently the "hoax" did have some basis for concern, but it was a bit late
and involved a different forum.
There are quite a few Campbells listed here, for those of you who are
looking for Civil War ancestors.
To All Whom It May Concern:
Please be informed that you can now search
The DESCRIPTIVE & HISTORICAL REGISTER
of Enlisted Soldiers in the U.S. Army,.... for free at:
The Buffalo Barracks Historical Web Site
[ http://www.buffalonet.org/army ]
Records of over 1,650 soldiers from all States and Territories
who either served at, enlisted at, reenlisted at, or were discharged at
the short lived Buffalo Barracks federal military post,
between 1835 and 1846, can be found at this outstanding
historical web site. Many of the men listed there fought in the
Florida Indian Wars, the War with Mexico, and then the Civil War.
Perhaps you have an ancestor who was at the Buffalo Barracks?
Learn what complexion his skin was; hair and eye color; height;
age; birth place.....and more!
I am descended from Alexander Campbell who came to the Northwest Territory in
1788 (first year of legal settlement) along with his wife Susannah Lee
Campbell,some children and his brother Archibald. His daughter Hester was born
in Rahway in 1785.Recent examination of colonil census 1607-1789 on Family
Tree Maker family archive showed Alex and Archibald in Middlesex County until
1780s and immediately in 1788 NW Territory Census. Lee family also present in
Middlesex at this time. Confirmation or help requested. Thanks John Campbell
Robert CAMPBELL shows up in Bergen County records over and over again as a
witness to many land transactions etc. around 1800 in the New Barbados /
Hackensack area. Does anyone have data on his genealogy? I suspect he may
fit with my family connections but I cannot find the connection.
I have come to a stand still on tracing of the Campbells. I would
like any information anyone may have on:
John Campbell b. 7-29-1763 d. 9-10-1823
married Elizabeth b. 4-4-1773 d. 4-20-1856
1. John M. Campbell b. 11-20-1807 d. 9-12-1873
m. Eliza Brakenridge Shoaf b. 2-9-1815 d. 3-07-1875
They were from Chambersburg, Franklin Co., PA.
They moved to Wayne Co., Ohio about 1852.
1. John Beamer Campbell married Amanda Lehr
I have all the information from John B. down to present
I am interested in hearing from anyone who might have information on the following family, and especially descendants.
Matthew Campbell and Jean Andrew, married at Riccarton, (Ayrshire, Scotland) on 30 Nov 1832. Matthew was born 1809 in Dalrymple, Scotland. He died June 1874 at Newton Terrace, Newton-Ayr. The informant concerning his death, as listed on death certificate was Andrew Campbell, son.

As far as I have John Campbell is my ancestor that came through Boston
in 1717. He was a political refugee from the Stuart uprising of 1715. He
was reportedly related to Lord Loudon. How do I find the connection?. He
was born north of Scotland. How do I find out where?
thank you Darlene
To all who posted warnings, and wrote their congressman, thank you for your
diligence. That's the only way we'll keep the internet free. However, be
warned, any time you get a message urging you to answer or write immediately
and pass it on to a friend, it is likely a hoax. There are far more hoaxes
than legitimate causes. To save you time and effort, there are sites which
you can go to for information regarding these hoaxes, such as
Its a very good idea to just drop by here for a minute to see if the warning
is legitimate. This site deals with both viruses and chain letter hoaxes.
It's saved me several times in the past from jumping onto bandwagons to nowhere.

I am trying to find the parents of Mary (Mollie) HUDSON, b. Dec 1861 in PA
(taken from a census) and died 28 Aug 1910 (from very brief obit)in
Strabane, Washington county, PA. She married John CAMPBELL in 1880
(presumably in Washington county, PA, have no proof of where or exact date).
I found her in the 1870 census index, as a child, living in Cecil township,
Washington county, PA but could not find her on the actual census. Found no
Hudson living there at
that time and the index did not show other Hudson family in Cecil township,
so don't know if she was living with another family or what. Obviously, know
nothing about her parents or siblings. Have been working on this family for
over ten years. Know just about as little on her spouse, John Campbell.
six children, Blanche, Nancy, Edna, Robert Hudson, Burton, and George
Edward. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Nancy Giles
