My Campbell lines , like so many, come mostly from Argyll. My grandmother
was Mary Campbell, daughter of Duncan Campbell, a dairy farmer in Oban,
His parents were Alexander Campbell and Isabella MacIntosh, who had several
large farms in th e area over the years. And I believe Alexander's
fatherwas also Alexander Campbell and mother Sara -- but we're back in the
very early 1700s, and records are skimpy.
They all seem to have had large families, so I guess I have cousins all
over the map. Among the names from the Oban area are: Binnie, Watt,
Cameron, Ferguson, Sommerville, Tryk, Nipperde y, and assorted others.
Sorry I can't be more help.

I have been researching my 4th great-grandmother Euphemia (Effie or
Campbell Livingston who was born around 1802 (date on her stone but not
entirely sure that is correct) in Kilfinichen, Argyll. She married Hugh
Livingston in Morvern, Argyll on 3 august 1829. She emigrated to the U.S.
with her 8 children (Hugh, Christina, Margaret (aka Peggy), John, Mary,
Catherine (my 3xs great grandmother, Anna and Sarah) in 1851 sometime after
the death of her husband. They were noted as paupers in the 1851 census
just before they left Scotland. They settled in and around Ironton, Ohio
and the boys worked in the furnaces there. She died in 1879 in Ironton,
I have been looking for parents and ancestors further back but to no avail.
I was hoping to connect with someone here who might know something more
than I do or is even related to me through Effie? Or who might be able to
point me to some resources that would help identify her parents?
