We have found that our John M. Campbell (1800-1883) who was born in NC (we
think) and died in Lafayette Co, MO, had a daughter Margaret born about 1834
who married Washington Lattimer and settled in Sniabar, Jackson Co, MO.
Their daughter Alice married John B. Campbell Jr. John B. Campbell Jr. was
the son of John B. Campbell Sr and Rachel Grubb of Loudoun Co, VA. Does
anyone have any information on John B. Campbell and Rachel Grubb?

Here is what we know so far about my daughter's birth Campbell family,
including the Loudoun County, VA, connection:
Since our Campbell family was relatively unknown to the Lafayette Co, MO,
board, I thought it might be a good idea to share where Janene, Martha and I
are in our research of this family.

There is a Michael C. Campbell buried in Stapp Cemetery next to John and

Campbell was born about 1769 and died 11 Apr 1847 in Lafayette Co, MO. He
also lived next to John Campbell in the Lafayette Co, MO, 1840 census.
