I am looking for family members of my GG Grandfather, John G. Campbell. He was born 1847 in Edinburgh Midlothian Scotland. Unfortunately, I do not know his parents names. He married Nancy E. Goodrich or Goodridge in 1875 in Wayne County, Kentucky. We heard he left Scotland because he was not happy with his stepfather and/or stepbrother. I know he left Scotland from Glasgow port and arrived in New York on the SS Australia 23rd May 1872. His occupation was Stone Cutter and he was 25 years old. He and Nancy had 4 sons. William Gramahm, John Green, Hugh Graine, & James Monroe. My G Grandfather, John Green was contacted by someone telling us that John G.’s father, my GGG Grandfather, invented a Jewelled Saw for Cutting Stone in 1867 and the Pattent was stollen by another person. This was part of the reason John G. left Scotland. I hope someone who is a descendant in Scotland will see this and give some info about the family members still in Scotland.
Looking for the family related to LaBell Campbell Sr. of Coffeville MS. He had several sibling, I remember Pauline , Carrielee, and Glen. He later married Evelyn (Robinson) Campbell of Grenada Mississippi. They had a son LaBelle - they called him Junior - and two adopted daughters Diane & Carmasita. They moved to Alton in the 40's -
My fathers name was William Campbell.He was a great story teller, and he loved to tell us ghost stories Most of his stories came from his father,Thomas.Thomas had come here from his fathers farm in Canonsburg. and settled in Beloit, Ohio, after a terrible beating from his father,Tom. They said his father was a mean man. Maybe so, maybe not. My father never knew his g.father either. "The old man"(as they called him"Great Grand dad" was married to Leah Jame Bell.
My grand dad had brothers named...William,James,Ernest Lee And a sister Mary.

Grand dad was a very sweet man,& was another story teller.I was only 5 when he died, but I can still remember him.I will always remember, he carried flask of whiskey in his pocket.He would take a little nip, as he call it
And its true, they loved there whisky.I never under stood why, untill I started getting Scotland magazine and found out there is a distillary on every corner.
I dont like whiskey, but I am proud to be a Scot!

I guessed in most families that is closed net, my is no exception to that rule. perhaps my is unique not becaused we all of us still lived the same town or lived about a mile away from each other. we are still a family in times of trouble and sorrow, however,I'm sure that each one of you has a fond memory of your childhood, i got a few, but however i have at least one fond memory.that i would like to share.During the month of December 1970 as i recall the day had started out normal, it had been snowing alittle i remember how excited i was knowing that "Santa" (the salvation army) was dropping off our toys at 3pm. when you are that young you are more appeciative and graitful to have a toy. which we were glad always. i remember getting a dollhouse a big wheel, and getting "tinkerbell" perfume kit and a mary poppins nurse kit but that doesnt compare to our "Big surprized" that my grandma brought us later on in the day, I recalled it was around dinner time mom had made my sisters and i some homemade chili soup grilled cheese sandwiches our christmas tree was lit and decorate it was a perfect day. my grandma came over she said she got us a big surprize, the surprize was an 60 pound old english sheep dog that we loving named whiskers.well he flew by the tree knocked it down and yet, we were happy to get him of course mom wasn't to thrill about him after he broke the bed after he ran into the bedroom we had the dog for awhile. it's funny how you can remember those comical moments like this. Now i'm alittle older wiser and yes i'm still apprecitive and graitful for the things i do have. and as well as the things i dont have. as for my grandma she passed away in 2002 after a illiness after her 80th birthday
My Campbell family came from Scotland to America in the early 1800's and first settled in Chesterfield, SC. They later moved to Madison County, Fl. and then to Pinellas County, Florida which was then Hillsbourgh County. Archibald & Keturah Rowell Campbell settled in Safety Harbor, Florida and are buried at Sylvan Abbey in Clearwater. Archibald came to America with his parents, John M. and Isabel Smith Campbell. The Campbell family was one of the first pioneers in the Pinellas County, Florida area. They grew oranges and grapefruit, owned land and built the first hotel in Largo, Florida. Many served in the Confederate mililtary. They were also involved in politics.
The most powerful of the Highland clans, the Campbells played a major role in Scottish national affairs over a considerable period of time. The clan claims descent from the earliest kings of Ireland, and thus from the first kings of Dalriada in western Scotland. This led them also to claim kinship with Somerled, the half-Scot/half-Norse ruler of the Western Isles and many parts of the mainland, who was killed in battle with the Scots in 1164.
The first Campbells in Argyll were (it is thought) the family of Duncan MacDuibhne, who lived in the reign of Alexander II (1214-49). He himself was a chief in Loch Awe who rejoiced in the nickname of 'Cambeul' (Crooked Mouth). His son, Sir Colin Campbell of Loch Awe, was knighted in about 1280. In 1292 he was one of the 12 lords of the Argyll region whose territories were linked to create a new Sheriffdom of Argyll. By the time he was killed soon afterwards in a feud, he had already come to be known as Cailean Mor, (Colin the Great), and the chiefs of Clan Campbell ever since have had among their titles the Gaelic honorific
'MacCailean Mor' - "Son of Colin the Great". This Colin the Great was the founder of the Campbells of Argyll, with his principal seat, Innischonaill Castle, on an island in Loch Awe.
Colin Campbell, the 3rd Earl, became Warden of the Marches between Scotland and England, and in 1528 was made Lord Justice General of Scotland (though he himself did not live more than a few months to enjoy it).
His son Archibald, the 4th Earl of Argyll, was Justiciary of Scotland and one of the very first magnates of Scotland to adopt and promote the Protestant Reformation. When he died in 1558, the 5th Earl took the side of Mary, Queen of Scots in her struggle with the Scottish Parliament and the Regent, the Earl of Moray. When Moray was murdered in 1570, Argyll became one of the Lieutenants of Scotland governing the country during the minority of Mary's son, James VI; but he was not made Regent when Moray's successor Lennox died in 1571. When he died without issue in 1575 the Earldom passed to his brother Colin as 6th Earl; he became Lord Chancellor in 1579.
By the time of Archibald Campbell, 7th Earl (1584-1638), the Campbells were Scotland's paramount clan: almost a kingdom within a kingdom. Their chiefs bid for the highest offices in the land as a matter of right, while no effort was spared to extend the Campbell domination by force or by law. No clan was ever more successful at buying up the debts of weaker neighbors. 'The Campbells', writes
John Buchan in "Montrose", had a knack of winning by bow and spear, then holding for all time and seal and parchment.
Thanks to the sea trade brought in by its long coast, Clan Campbell was also the richest in Scotland bar none. With Campbell raiding parties cowing the clan's weaker neighbors as far east as Badenoch, Lochaber and the Braes of Angus, the Campbells were also the most hated.
Archibald Campbell, 8th Earl of Argyll from 1638 to 61, was a leader of the Covenanters in their resistance to Charles I. He was compelled by the King to bow to the demands of Covenant and Parliament in 1641, yet in true Campbell style accepted the new title of 1st Marquis bestowed during the King's visit to Scotland in 1641, with which the King vainly hoped to make the rebellious nobility of Scotland his loyal supporters.
Though no soldier himself, Argyll threw the immense resources of Clan Campbell into the Covenanting cause during the Great Civil War - only to see that power broken, and the Campbell lands plundered by exulting enemy clansmen only too eager to get some of their own back, during Montrose's amazing winter campaign of 1644 - 1645. After Montrose's defeat at Philiphaugh, Argyll shared the widespread contempt earned by the Covenanters for betraying and handing over Charles I to the tender mercies of the English Parliamentarians. He sought to dominate the young King Charles II when the latter attempted a Royalist comeback in 1650, placing the Crown of Scotland on the King's head during the coronation at Scone, then made a pact with Cromwell after the latter's defeat of the Scots at Dunbar and Worcester. For this he was not forgiven at the Restoration in 1660, and was executed at Edinburgh in 1661.
Though the Marquessate of Argyll was forfeited on the conviction and execution of the 8th Earl, the other Campbell honors were restored to his son, the 9th Earl. He was the last Argyll to oppose the Crown, in 1685, supporting the Protestant Duke of Monmouth in his bid to oust the Catholic James II, Charles II's brother and successor. Argyll was captured and executed and his seat at Inverary (though subsequently rebuilt) was razed to the ground.
It was under the 10th Earl, who backed William of Orange in 1688-89, that the Campbells earned lasting infamy (albeit undeserved) for their role in the notorious Massacre of Glencoe (13 February 1692). Ordered as it was by King William, the massacre encouraged much Highland support for the cause of the exiled Stewart King James in what now became known as the Jacobite cause. But the Campbells continued to prosper as Government adherents.
The 10th Earl received a Dukedom in 1701; two subsequent Dukes of Argyll became Field Marshalls in the British Army; the 9th Duke married Princess Louise, daughter of Queen Victoria and became Governor-General of Canada.
Of the several branches of Clan Campbell, two of the most important were those of Breadalbane and Cawdor. The Breadalbane Campbells stem from Colin of Glenorchy, son of Duncan Campbell of Loch Awe, the 1st Lord, who obtained Glenorchy when the MacGregors were driven off it. One of their earliest seats was Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe. This branch became Earls of Breadalbane in 1677.
The Cawdor Campbells stem from an act of dynastic piracy on the part of the 2nd Earl of Argyll. In 1499 he kidnapped the infant daughter of the Thane of Cawdor a few weeks after the latter's death, and ten years or so later married her to his third son, Sir John Campbell. This made the Campbells Lords of Cawdor, and in 1827, the 10th Lord of Cawdor became the 1st Earl of Cawdor. Both earldoms, Breadalbane and Cawdor still exist.
