TABITHA ADAMS RUSSELL CAMPBELL.
TABITHA ADAMS RUSSELL, daughter of Gen. William and Tabitha Adams Russell,
was born in Culpeper county, Va., 1764. She married Capt. William Campbell,
of Washington county, Va., about 1784. Captain Campbell was the son of
Patrick Campbell, and his mother was Miss Steele. His grandfather was also
Patrick Campbell, a brother of Charles Campbell, who was the father of Gen.
William Campbell of King's Mountain fame. Soon after their marriage they
removed to Cumberland, Tenn., which was then in Davidson county, North
Carolina. In 1788 they removed to Fayette county, Ky., and settled
temporarily on "Elkhorn," near the residence of Col. William Russell at
Russell's Cave. In 1793 they removed thence to Muhlenburg county, and
settled permanently at Caney Station, which was upon a portion of the
"Russell survey." Captain Campbell was a man of remarkable purity of
character, and of great piety. The following letter written by him was found
in the collection of old correspondence, and is probably the only one of his
now in existence. It will doubtless be read with interest by his
ELKHORN, KY., January 27th, 1792.
Captain ROBERT S. RUSSELL,
DEAR SIR:--By Captain Price I have the pleasure of writing you a line to
inform you of our welfare. We all enjoy a good state of health, and we thank
God for all his mercies.
I have got into business respecting your mill-seat which I did not expect.
Mr. Moore had agreed to make a beginning of your work before the year
expired, but not thinking of any danger he delayed till the time was out,
when George H(???) claimed a right he purchased from your brother Col.
Russell, which claim crossed the creek above your seat. H(???) immediately
took out an order before I knew it. I also have taken one, and we have each
had a jury on the land, and one trial in
court, when both orders were quashed. I have now a third jury, to meet on
yours the first day of February. I expect H(???) cannot obtain another
order, from the fact that your brother had not made him a deed to the land,
and which he now refuses to do on account of his wanting to take such an
advantage. I have heard that H(???) intends to carry it to the General
Court, if he loses it in this county. I wish to hear from you immediately as
to whether I shall contend in the Supreme Court if necessary. I have been at
a good deal of expense already, but shall not stop at a little more till I
shall hear from you. I am very sorry it has happened, but now it cannot be
helped. I think you would do well to come out as soon as possible.
Your brother gives me information which is pleasing to me and your dear
sister, which is that you have been brought to think seriously of the things
of another world as well as the present one--a happy reflection to those who
make religion their choice. I pray God that we may all so live in this world
that we may meet in the hereafter for all eternity.
Our love to sister Russell and family. Adieu.
Yours, WM. CAMPBELL.
Capt. ROBERT S. RUSSELL, Shenandoah, Va.
