To Steven Campbell & anyone else interested in these two Campbelll's.
This was sent to me from Brent Campbell, descendant of Joel Campbell, son of Henry
Campbell on June 27, 2000. The last paragraph:
"This last bit I don't think is about anyone related to either of us, but it is
kind of interesting. When I was in Lynchbug (just south of Amherst) VA a few weeks back,
I dragged my Dad around to various cemeteries to take pictures with his digital camera.
He recently went to a family reunion in Raphine, VA which is at the intersection of
Nelson, Rockbridge and Augusta counties. They went to services at Haines Chapel and found
an AMBROSE AND DORCUS CAMPBELL in the church cemetery. The appear to be the Ambrose
Campbell and Darcus Edsall that were married 22 June 1811 in Rockbridge County that were
included on your list of Ambrose information. I thought you might be interested. Small
Note to Steven: Sorry it took me so long to find the email with the information regarding
the two pictures of the headstones. There are a number of Ambrose Campbell's in the
southwest VA area, and they are often mixed up. George Campbell (d. 1791) also had a son
Ambrose. Ambrose & Joel were two popular names for the Campbell's. I won't
even mention John.....there are dozens! There was another Ambrose Campbell who married
Anna Christ, and one who married Rhoda...? I haven't researched the other Ambrose
Campbell's, so I'm not much help there.
