Subject: Campbell/Cameron family.
I have an interest in Mary CANPBELL, daughter of Duncan and Mary McClean. He brought his family to Victoria Australia, and died there. His daughter married Thomas CAMERON in Victoria in 1856.
The parents of Thomas were John CAMERON and Mary CAMPBELL. (Plenty of Mary CAMPBELLS). Thomas and his family later moved to New Zealand.
Looking forward to hearing from you. My main interest is in Ann CAMERON born in 1861 and may have called herself Annie CAMPBELL when my father was born in 1885.
Kenneth Lex Campbell, (Lex)

*Seeking to break a deadlock in my research for:
*Silas Hampton Campbell **1823–1882*
Birth 28 AUGUST 1823 • North Subdivision, Augusta, Virginia (likely Mt.
Death 10 JULY 1882 • St. Charles, Madison County, Iowa
Married to Mary Catherine Ritchie(1823-1893) daughter of Henry Ritchie
(1785-1860) and Elizabeth Bible (1794-1875)
Records, if they ever existed at the Augusta County Courthouse burned
(probably twice). This, from a great uncle who had difficulty obtaining
a birth certificate at one stage.
Seeking information/leads/suggestions that would enable me to explore
this line more fully.

Records show two possibilities for Silas H. Campbell's military service.
These need to be more thoroughly researched
*1 possibility: Capt. O.F Ginnah's Co. 5th Reg., Va. Inf.*
Enlisted: May 11, 1861 Sangersville, Va.
The *5th Virginia Volunteer Infantry Regiment* was an infantry regiment
raised in Virginia for service in the Confederate States Army during
theAmerican Civil War. It fought in the Stonewall Brigade, mostly with
the Army of Northern Virginia. 5th Infantry Regiment was organized in
May, 1861, under Colonel Kenton Harper.
Eight companies were from Augusta County and two from Frederick County.
The unit became part of the Stonewall Brigade and served under Generals
T.J. Jackson, Richard B. Garnett, Charles Sidney Winder, Elisha F.
Paxton, James A. Walker, and William Terry. It saw action at First
Manassas, First Kernstown, and in Jackson's Valley Campaign. Later the
5th participated in the campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from
the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor, then was active in Early's
Shenandoah Valley operations and around Appomattox.
It reported 9 killed, 48 wounded, and 4 missing at First Kernstown, had
4 killed, 89 wounded, and 20 missing at Cross Keys and Port Republic,
and suffered 14 killed and 91 wounded at Second Manassas. The unit
sustained 120 casualties at Chancellorsville and of the 345 engaged at
Gettysburg, sixteen percent were disabled. It surrendered 8 officers and
The field officers were Colonels William S.H. Baylor, John H.S. Funk,
William H. Harman, and Kenton Harper; Lieutenant Colonel Hazel J.
Williams; and Majros Absalom Koiner and James W. Newton.
*Another possibility: *The *19th Virginia Volunteer Cavalry Regiment*
was a cavalry regiment raised in Virginia for service in the Confederate
States Army during the American Civil War. It fought with the Army of
Northern Virginia, in southwest Virginia, and in the Shenandoah Valley.
Virginia’s 19th Cavalry Regiment was formed in April, 1863, using the
*3rd Regiment Virginia State Line* as its nucleus. It served in Jenkin's
and W.L. Jackson's Brigade and confronted the Federals in western
Virginia. Later the unit took part in the operations in the Shenandoah
Valley and disbanded during April, 1865. Its commanders were Colonel
William L. Jackson, Lieutenant Colonel William P. Thompson, and Majors
George Downs and Joseph K. Kesler.

I have been researching my 4th great-grandmother Euphemia (Effie or Effy)
Campbell Livingston who was born around 1802 (date on her stone but not
entirely sure that is correct) in Kilfinichen, Argyll. She married Hugh
Livingston in Morvern, Argyll on 3 august 1829. She emigrated to the U.S.
with her 8 children (Hugh, Christina, Margaret (aka Peggy), John, Mary,
Catherine (my 3xs great grandmother, Anna and Sarah) in 1851 sometime after
the death of her husband. They were noted as paupers in the 1851 census
just before they left Scotland. They settled in and around Ironton, Ohio
and the boys worked in the furnaces there. She died in 1879 in Ironton,
I have been looking for parents and ancestors further back but to no avail.
I was hoping to connect with someone here who might know something more
than I do or is even related to me through Effie? Or who might be able to
point me to some resources that would help identify her parents?
