For April L. Morgan,
I was surfing the web in the search of those elusive Campbells and came across the
following site which had a William Lewis Campbell. It's the wrong generation, but a
possible connection. I tried contacting the person who entered the info, but the message
came back as undeliverable. So did the one I tried to send you.
Family genealogy of Wheeler as researched by Kerry Wheeler
I pulled this except from a document on http://nickell.tierranet.com/lewiscg.htm
It's back aways, but could be where the Lewis and Campbell connection began.
" I have found no records of Wm Lewis prior to 1774, nor have I been able
to "connect" him with any other Lewis family in Virginia. He was surely
born before 1730 (probably by 1720) and although tradition says this
family came from Wales, there is no documented evidence. At present, I
have at least 6 claims and suggestions (none of them proved) and I do not
feel that copying these would merit the space that would be consumed....
Most of the claims have been disproved.
William Lewis and his sons seemed to have few records in Washington
County until 20 July 1779 when they appeared in Coury(t?) and acknowledged
themselves indebted to the Commonwealth of Virginia, by bonds which would
become void if conditions set out were followed.
--John Lewis, for 500 pounds - good behavior for one year;
securities, William Lewis and John Campbell, 250 pounds each.
--Griffith Lewis, for 500 pounds - appearance at next court;
securities Wm Lewis and John Lewis, 250 pounds each.
--Peter Razor, 1000 pounds;
securities, Wm Lewis and Griffith Lewis, 500 pounds each.
--Thomas Lewis - for a misdemeanor, ordered to pay 10 pounds
The rest of the document is about the Lewis family.
For the rest of the Campbell researchers out there:
Other Campbell sites I found:
- African American regiment in the
Spanish American War
- Has many Campbell
- A few Campbells in
1900s (cemetery, birth, death and marriage
- Over 100
"Jackson" C. Campbell
- Chester, PA cemetery web site - has some cemetery
(Added to site as volunteers load the
databases) and obituary (Current only) info available A very slow loading site. Not
sure if there is much here for the
Campbells, didn't have time to pursue it right now.
