Subject: [Campbell] Esom Campbell pension
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="windows-1250"
Hi, below I pasted a file I found on a Knox County KY. Website, county
coordinator Cassy Sommers, Link: HYPERLINK
I believe the birth date given for Esom Campbell is a typo. Esom couldn?t
have been born in 1863 and also served in the Civil War.
Does anyone know about this?
I don?t know where to find the original, or how to contact Krista Loyd who
The reason I am interested is I have an Esom Campbell (unknown birth date)
in my database who married a Nancy Ann Foley on February 23, 1868, her
father G.B. (Greenberry) Foley performed the ceremony.
Esom?s second wife was Susan V. Moore, who filed for the pension.
