Since I have done little (or practically no) research on Peter Campbell, son of Ambrose
Campbell of Amherst/Nelson Co., VA, unless it happened to fall in my lap, I am grateful to
have the information you have posted! Just keeping up with my direct lines has taken a
tremendous amount of time. And for the past 5 years my children (long since grown) have
threatened to disown their mother if she doesn't get busy on the Pengilly family
genealogy. I must confess, that the Campbell's have been the most interesting and
rewarding of all the lines I've researched though! Oh, those Campbell men and women!
Tandy Campbell (my 3rd GG) named his third son Peter. I didn't suspect there was a
son Peter in his family until I got Tandy's probate records in 1845. The children
were: Jefferson & Nicholas (both b. in VA), Matilda (b. VA),
Susan, Nancy, Peter, Mary Ann (all b. in KY), & James R. & Wilson (b. in MO).
There was one other child b. in KY who died. None of the girls were named after his
I might interest you to know that my Grandmother, Minnie Elizabeth Campbell Morgan was 4
ft. 11 in. tall, with fiery red hair and blue eyes. That might give you a picture of what
her particular Campbell ancestors may have looked like.
I'm grateful for the information, and I WILL get back to my Campbell's as soon as
I get some more done on my husband's lines in Cornwall and Luxemburg. At first
glance, it appears that our lines crossed a number of generations back. Howdy, cousin.
