Is this a different Marion Campbell? Am I looking at wrong one?

Subject: Lafayette Marion Campbell
Dear Cary Clements (by way of A. T. Powell, Jr.):
You say that Lafayette Marion Campbell married Adelia Jane Hudson, and they
had a daughter named Connie Campbell who then married James M. Stinnett.
In the 1880 census there is a man listed as Marion Campbell born 1851,
married to Adelia J. born 1850. They are listed in Amherst Co VA
The children are: Allis M Campbell b. 1878 and Adelia Campbell b. 1880.
In the 1886 Amherst Co VA personal property tax roll of Amherst Co VA is
listed: L. Marion Campbell, and also listed is a separate listing for Adelia
J. Campbell. The 2 separate listing might mean that the 2 are living
separate lives, or it could mean that she owned property of her own, and
was taxed on it separately. I am not sure why the 2 people who are living
together in 1880, are now in 1886 listed separate.
I was under the impression, that legally in 1886 a married woman's property
was OWNED by her husband, but perhaps I am wrong.
You said that you thought that George G. Campbell b. 1803, s/o William, s/o
george and Caty Campbell of Amherst Co VA, might be possibly the father to
Lafayette Marion Campbell.
In the 1860 census George G. Campbell is listed as 57 years old, living in
Amherst Co VA. If Lafayette Marion Campbell is indeed his father, I would
think that the 1860 census should show him inside the household as a 9 year
old boy. I will look that up.
Cecil Campbell is a direct descendant of George G. Campbell, s/o William,
s/o George and Caty Campbell. Perhaps Cecil will know if there was a son
named Lafayette Marion Campbell?
In my OWN Campbell family we do have a son named Lafayette Campbell, he is
thought to have been born about 1847. In the 1850 census he is a small boy
listed in the household ofg Jesse Wright in Amherst Co VA, who is his
materanl grandfather. Lafayette Campbell's parents were George T. Campbell
and Eady Burcher Wright.
We have thought that this Lafayette Campbell died EARLY, because he was not
named in the 1882 land dispersment from his widowed Mother Eady B. Campbell
in Temperance, Amherst Co VA. We felt since he was not named he must be
Is there a chance that Lafayette Marion Campbell, married to Adelia Jane
Hudson, might be the son of George and Eady, my ancestors? Any comments?
Lafayette is a fairly common name, and I have several Lafayette Campbells in
my files: I see one is a Lafayette Campbell b. 1842, he is in the 1850
census in Amherst Co VA with no father, but the head of household is
Elizabeth Campbell b. 1792. She is too old to be his Mom, but might be a
grandmother. They are living next door to Willliam Wright.
Sarah Jane Campbell married Andrew Morgan Bowling, they had a son named
Benjamin Lafayette Bowling b. 1882, he married CONNIE M. STINNETT, they
married 1904, I suspect that this lady is a relative to your Connie Campbell
Stinnett, is she daughter, or grandaughter? This lady is related to James
Emory, as his ancestor is Sarah Jane Campbell, the sister of my ancestor
Henry W. Campbell, s/o George and Eday Campbell, of Temperance, Amherst Co
Concerning the second Campbell connection you cite: Judith Campbell b. about
1776 married Hiram McGinnis, m. 2-24-1795. Judith was d/o Lawrence Campbell
and Henrietta of Nelson Co VA.
We would LOVE to find a living CAMPBELL male who would do the DNA test, to
see what matches would occur. There are now about 140 test participants, so
it is really helping to see which groups match others. It is possible the
DNA test project www.familytreedna.com
might allow you to match to a
Campbell family line in Scotland. Do you KNOW any living Campbell males
from Lawrence Campbell family line of descendants?
Also, how firmly do you believe that Henrietta was a born CATLETT? I am
myself a Taliaferro descendant, and therefor I have studied some of the many
Taliaferro/Catlett marriages in Colonial Virginia. Do you truely feel you
know Henrietta, or have you cpoied down info from others, without looking
yourself? I have a file on Lawrence and Henrietta, but I have never put a
maiden name on her, because I was not yet sure of her true identity, because
this is not my OWN ancestry, I had not spent much time looking.
Lilly Martin (PS: A.T. will you please forward this to Cary so I can hear
back a reply?)

By the way, do you know much about the Campbell's?
James Madison Stinnette married Connie CAMPBELL
daughter of Lafayette Marion Campbell and Adelia Jane
Hudson. I think Marion was the son of George Goode
Campbell but I'm not sure.
Roberta Blanche McGinnis, wife of Richard C.
Stinnette, was the grand daughter of Judith Campbell.
Judith was the daughter of Lawrence Campbell
(1735-1814) and Henrietta Amerilla Catlett(1742-1832).
Cary Clements & I are Related through the Stinnett & North Family
But I wonder abt these Campbell's. Can you help?
