E.B. Campbell - vital records of Marion Co., WV list E.B. as Edward and
Burner. Little background info to go on.
E.B. reportedly maintained more than 1 family. Known facts, he had one
family in Marion Co WV and had 13 children by Nellie (? - maiden name)
and Nellie ran a boarding house in Fairmont WV while E.B. spent a lot of
time in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Rumors have it that E.B. had another
family in PA. Nellie died in 1950's or 1960's in Illinois, where she
lived with a daughter, name unknown to me. No other reports about E.B.
The only children fathered by E.B. of the 13 in WV I know for sure are:
Floyd Campbell born early 1900's (about 1915-1920) and Winfred Campbell,
born 1904. Don't know names or any info on other 11 children. Another
of the 13 may have been Richard Campbell.
Vital records also show that E.B. fathered "Lady M Campbell", born July
17, 1883, Marion Co WV records - at which time the mother is listed as
Floyd Campbell was a bomber pilot in WWII and was shot down somewhere
over the Burma Islands in 1943. Found record on this on a genealogy
site. Floyd fathered Franklin Lee Campbell born June 3, 1935, Marion Co
WV (my father)- mother, Mary Olive Wilson. They divorced very early,
Floyd fathered Dorothy Campbell, year of birth unknown.
Winifred Campbell married a Bragg, had children by the name of Bernard,
Susan, Don, and (not sure of 4th) - Judy (?). Winifred died in Marion
Co WV mid 1990's.
Very limited info, and I'm getting stuck since i don't have any
background info. Lots of Campbell's in Marion Co, but don't know how
I'm connected. My father, Franklin Lee Campbell, had very limited
connections with the Campbell family since Floyd and his mother divorced
when he was very little.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I'd really like to
eventually be able to find out where my Scottish roots are!
