I am descended from a James Campbell who was listed in the 1850 Census of DeKalb Co., AL,
as being born in 1780 in S.C. At that time he was living with his son John Campbell, born
1807 in South Carolina, whose most of his children were born in Georgia. James had a
daughter Mary P. Campbell, born 1805 in S.C. She was
married to Joshua Teague who was born in the 96th District, Newbery, S. C. It may be that
since Joshua was born in the 96th District that Mary Campbell was living there at that
time. In the census Mary's mother is listed as being born in Ireland. The family
tradition has our Campbell family being originally from
Scotland. I am descended from Mary P. Campbell and Joshua Teague. I really would like to
know more facts about James. If you or anyone else ever find any information, please let

My Campbells are from South Carolina. My line is John Campbell who
was in the 96 district around 1778. There was also William, Angus, James, Jesse and Joseph
Campbell who was there at the same time.
Does anyone know if all these men are kin?
The earliest Campbells I have been able to find in SC : James SC No. Co. listed 1763
Warrant for Land, Margaret SC No. Co. listed 1764, Elizabeth SC No. Co. listed 1764
