My husbands mothers family are campbells and I have been trying to track
them back to their roots in scotland. I know that they lead back to
Lawrence Campbell born 1735 in Scotland and died 10/17/1814 in Amherst
Virginia. I also know that he must somehow be related to Henry Campbell
born in 1720 in Scotland and Died 3/10/1772 in Amherst Virginia.
Lawrence was executor of Henry's will which led me to believe related. I
also know that Lawrence Campbell was married to Henrietta Catlett and that
Henry Campbell was married to Charity Catlett. I think they may have
initially lived in Spotsylvania, Carolina County Virginia after immigrating
from Scotland and moved to Amherst in early 1760's.
I use ancestry.com
but do not believe everything on family trees there,
have found mistakes. But I found 1 tree that said both Henry(born1720) and
Lawrence (born 1735) were sons of John Campbell (1655-1729) and Elizabeth
Elphinstone but know that can't be right since John died in 1729 and all
their other children were born late 1690's.
I then found where their son John Campbell (1693-1770) and Mary Bellenden
had 4 sons and I believe they had sons Henry, William, Archibald and John.
I'm wondering if this is the Henry that came to Amherst VA.
My gut tells me that maybe Lawrence was Henry's son born in Scotland also
and that they both came together to Amherst va but I can't find proof to
tie that all together. I'm at dead ends on ancestry.com
and have even read
internet histories on the campbells but it seems that John Campbell
(1655-1729) must have not had signifance to anyone because I can't find
much on him. Can't find much on even John Campbell (1693-1770) and he was
the 4th duke of argyll. The only son of his that is mentioned is John and
I think Henry, WIlliam and Archibald were also his children but no mention
I'm really stuck and would love any pointers or info you have on this group
of campbells. If you have a word doc or anything that tells me more about
the children/lives of John Campbell (1693-1770) married to Mary Bellenden,
John Campbell( 1655-1729) married to Elizabeth Elphinstone and especially
if you have any data on Henry campbell (1720 -1772) born Scotland and died
in Amherst VA or Lawrence Campbell (1735-1814) born in scotland and died in
Amherst VA, I would be so appreciative.
