Subject: Re: [CAMPBELL] Info from Missouri
Someone had asked for information on Granville K. Campbell. I went
Missouri in May and found the following. I hope it helps.
"History of Lafayette County", Missorui. page 544
GRANVILLE K. CAMPBELL
Farmer, P. O. Dover. The subject of this sketch is a native of Alabama;
born at Huntsville, June 22, 1823. His parents, James and Ann Elizabeth
Campbell, were formerly residents of Lafayette County, moving to Alabama
or '19. In 1834 the family returned to this county, locating
Lexington township, where Granville passed his youth in a manner
farmer boys; attending school in winter and working on the farm in
1849, October 3, he married his first wife, Miss Louise J. Walker.
marriage they had five boys; Samuel W., James H., Robert Lee, Hiram
Ion Granville, (deceased). Mrs. Campbell died July 9, 1865. In 1853
purchased the splendid farm upon which he now resides, consisting of
of land, which in its advanced state of cultivation, and comfortable
convenient buildings and improvements, shows that a man of broad views
experience is at the helm. June 5, 1866, he married for his second
Mrs. Maria Johnson, nee Hockensmith. The fruit of this union is one
Alexander B. Mr. Campbell took no active part in the late war,
remaining at home
during the greater part of the time, engaged in the cultivation of
his steady application and industrious efforts, he has succeeded in
accumulating considerable wealth, which he uses in a manner calculated,
his judgment, to produce the greatest good to the largest number. He
started three of his sons in business, having given to each a fine
also taken an active part in public affairs, and to him the county is
a great measure, for its present advanced stage of prosperity.
In the same book, ? page
Thomas B. Campbell
born : Huntsville, Alabama on June 16, 1824
son of James and Ann Eliza Jennings (daughter of David Jennings)
James died Dover in 1872
Thomas married Jan 15, 1856 to Sallie M. Hicks
daughter of A. B. Hicks of Fayette, Howard County, Missouri at
Church in Dover.
I do not have any other info on these people. But when I first wrote
down I thought Granville and Thomas were brothers. Then I saw the
Granville were James and Ann Elizabeth (no maiden name) and the
Thomas were James and Ann Eliza Jennings. Both Granville and Thomas
were born in
Huntsville, Alabama only one year apart so it still might be that
least cousins if not brothers.
I hope this helps
