Once again I would like to find the parents of James Harrison (AKA Harry)
Campbell. This couple were caught by the Cholera or Flux epidentics of
1873. They and a son J.H. Jr. all died that year. Their son Jacob Walter
Campbell and his wife Nettie Calhoun also died suddenly in 1904 leaving 7
children. At this time they lived in Bedford Co., Tn. in and around
Shelbyville . If any family records were left they burned in the barn of
their oldest daughter. My Mother also died nine months after I was born so
there was almost a wipe-out of any family records.
I can trace Martha Anne Parsons back but so far have found nothing about
J.H.. The 1850 Middle Tennessee Census shows them born in 1840 and shows
him from Mississippi and Martha Anne b. in Tn. Family stories seem to feel
that the Campbells came to Tn. via Kentucky from Virginia.
If there is anyone who feels that they might connect with my family please
respond. I receive Snail mail at 1767 Cristo Loop, Lillian, Al. 36549-5243
Thanks, Jean Beard
