Thanks for asking about my family in Indiana...here is a little bit of the
history of them.
My gg grandfather Garrett Campbell b. Born 5 Sep 1821 in Pennsylvania, Died
3 May 1863 in Battle Of Chancellorsville, Chancellorsville, VA. He was a
soldier in the 134th PA volunteers and killed in the battle of
His wife at the time...Nancy Jane MCCLYMONDS daughter to poss. William
MCCLYMONDS and definitely Sarah BROWN MCCLYMONDS. Nancy Jane was Born 10 Nov
1835 in Butler County, PA. Died 26 Jun 1916 in Van Wert, OH. She took HER
children from Butler County, Pennsylvania to Van Wert Co., Ohio where her
mother and sister were living next door to her mother's brother William
Brown (according to the 1870 census).
At the time Garrett also had 2 children from a previous marriage. Children
with Garret's first wife Sarah Jane Jamison were Alexander born 18 Dec 1850
and Adaline E. (Adda or Addie)born Born 8 Jun 1853. Nancy Jane handed over
guardianship of Adda to J.N. Glenn of Butler County, PA in 1867. Adaline
would have been about 14 years old at the time. Alexander would have already
been about 17 and presumeably on his own. No further information on
Alexander or Adaline.
Garrett and Nancy Jane's children:
Abraham Orlando CAMPBELL. Born 25 May 1859 in Butler County, PA. Died 10 Apr
1944 in New Castle, Henry Co., IN.
William G. CAMPBELL. Born 16 Oct 1860 in Butler Co. PA.
John W. A. CAMPBELL. Born 15 Dec 1861 in Butler Co. PA.
Abraham Orlando my g grandfather married Phoebe Jane MILLS, daughter of
Joseph Nelson MILLS & Margaret Amelia ADAMS, 8 Oct 1887 in Bluffton, Wells
County, IN. Born 26 Oct 1868 in Farmland, IN. Died 10 Jun 1959 in Ball
Hospital, Muncie, Delaware County, IN.
Would like any information on this family including any information on
Abraham's brothers and sister...Alexander, Adaline, William and John.

Please don't feel like you "clutter up the list"! I am
of the opinion
any genealogical data pertaining to the Campbell's should be
here....that archives it for all and for the future!! Thanks...

I've been asked via direct e-mail to clarify my previous message
concerning George Campbell.
I am attempting to compile a database of the name George Campbell and
variations based on census, marriage and death records, mini-biographies
if you will. The purpose is to put to bed any that can't be mine! In
order to do that, I need input from all of you that have a George
Campbell in your tree. Specifically I am looking for any information on
ANY George Campbell born between 1860 and 1870, in Indiana or Illinois,
now expanded to include Kentucky, Ohio, Missouri. If you can link your
George Campbell to census of 1870 or 1880 and have any additional
information (marriage, parents, death or subsequent census), please send
me what you have. I intend to include whatever is available in each
mini-biography. Parents, place of birth, parents place of birth,
children, wives, occupation, death etc.
This will take some length of time to compile, and I'm hopeful you all
will particapate. My reason for doing this is quite simple, my George
was supposedly born in 1864, Indiana/Illinois, not sure which. He died
by 1904 in KY. If I can weed out any George Campbell's dead or
otherwise occupied after 1899 (when he married my grandmother), I may
find who my granddad's parents were or at least where he really was
from!. I really expect this to take several months, but I already have
a good start! This data will be free for anyone interested.
Please help out with as little information as you might have. One of
Dad's final wishes was to find more about his father, he was 5 when he
died and his mother refused to discuss him.
