I also have KY Campbell's. Mine mostly resided in Knott and Floyd counties.
I have traced definitively back to James Campbell & his wife Mary 'Polly;
Campbell. Their son David (also called Daniel) married Lousia Branham and
they had John. John was also called Copper John, and he had a son who also
inherited the nickname because of red hair. John Jr. was also a legendary
basketball coach down there too. My Campbell's also owned Campbell grocery
store down by Garrett. Other towns lived by were Salt Lick and Flat Lick.
John's son Harry married Elise Bailey (daughter of William 'Dutch' Bailey
his wife Laura Belle), and they had my grandmother Velma Jeannine. Both
Harry & Elsie, as well as my grandparents, moved to Michigan in order to
find work in the automotive industry. If any of this sounds familiar, please

SJ, I am also looking for KY Campbell's. I have found that in
CO.KY. page....KYGENWEB there is a site Fayette CO KY Virginia
part of Va. I believe it was Augusta Co. There was a Scotch-Irish
in that part of Va. There are records from 1745-1800. This site has
info. Hope it is of some help to you. I'm still exploring it.
have known but really just learned is I have to look at year and then see
the county is in that year. 1700s KY was part of Va.
Red Book comes in handy....Good luck......Yvonne Hawley
