I still haven't found all my notes on the Campbell's from the Middlesex
county NJ area.
Do you have Dugel's will information (Can't recall if I ever sent it to
you)? I don't recall if it listed all the children or not. I have few
pages of the NJ Campbell Wills and probates from a book with wills up to
1820 or so.
I have the following:

NJ during this time).

Hope this is of help...
I know that Dugald who married Sarah Bloomfield was father of Ellis R
Campbell who married Nancy Clawson in the home of Dr Melanctom (many
spellings) Freeman. I have seen two marriage dates...
I have the military records for Ellis R, and also couple of DAR applications
in which he was used as the patriot.
The person who sent me the packet of information was researching David
Campbell.. and if I recall correctly, she extracted all the Campbell
mentions from the following:
Genealogical Society of NJ
Special Collections and Archives
New Jersey Room
New Brunswick, NJ
(these copies seem to be from years ago.. all are hand written, except for
some of the wills.. these were photocopied and placed on the handwritten
I don't have the persons name who sent me this material..but I have found it
interesting & it has helped me many times.

confirmation he was the son of Dugel Campbell and Sarah Bloomfield.
