Descendants of Edward Campbell

Generation No. 1

1. EDWARD2 CAMPBELL (ALEXANDER OR JOHN1) was born 1757 in Kintyre, Argylshire, Scotland, and died February 1837 in Coon Hill Cemetery, Chumuckla, Florida. He married MARY MCLELLAN 1777 in Highlands of Scotland, daughter of JOHN MCLELLAN and UNKNOWN.

Notes for E

      Tradition tells us that Edward Campbell was a Highlander Scot from Argyll, Scotland. From old files found in the Judicial Center Building in Pensacola, Florida, our ancestor, Edward Campbell, was born about 1757, near Kintyre, in the Highlands of Scotland. He came to America with his wife, Mary McLellan, born circa 1759 in Isle of Islay, Scotland, and their six children, three boys, Charles, Duncan, and Daniel, and three girls, Mary, Christian, and one female child who died young.
      Knowing the history of Scotland during the 18th Century will aid us in understanding why Edward Campbell left his family and his homeland. Like many before him, the harsh treatment of the Scots after the Battle of Culloden caused many Highlanders to leave in great numbers. In 1745, Bonnie Prince Charles Edward Stuart, under the cloak of secrecy left Italy for Scotland in a valiant effort to regain the throne of his father, the rightful King, King James Francis Stuart, who lived in exile for many years. It was a foolish plight bound for failure because there wasn't sufficient resources or backing for such an undertaking. Of course, Bonnie Prince Charles hoped after a few victories the French would support his efforts, but in this belief he was sadly mistaken. On a cold rainy day on April 16, 1746 at Drummossie Moor, about one mile from Culloden House, Bonnie Prince Charles and his Highlanders was soundly defeated by the son of King George of Hanover. George, the Duke of Cumberland, swore to give no quarter, and kept that promise.
      As a result of the ill-fated battle, the way of life changed forever in Scotland. In spit of the fact. the Campbell Chief, the Duke of Argyll, remained loyal to Crown of England, as did many Highlanders, and the Campbells fought beside the Duke of Cumberland, the great strife which affected Scotland after that fateful day affected all who were of Scottish birth. In the Cumberland's vengence to crush the Highlander's spirit, many men were slaughtered to near annilation, and what few where left alive were imprisoned and sent to work as slaves on the plantation in the Bahamas. At the same time, the Englishmen came pouring into the Highlands to the lay claim to forfeited lands. Highland families were forcibly removed from their homes to wander like gypsies about the country. Women and children died of deprivation and starvation.
      The price of loosing this battle between Kings left lasting scars on all of Scotland. To aid his suffering kinsmen, the Duke of Argyll made arrangements to help many clansmen go abroad to a land which was said to be rich and bountiful. To stake out a claim for the Scots in this new land. Edward Campbell was one of these Scots who stood ready to take his family on this perilous journey across the sea. He left from the Port of Greenock (across from Glasgow, Scotland) with his wife, Mary MacLellan and their six children. They arrived in Charleston, South Carolina in circa 1788 and settled for a short time in Saint Bartholomew Parish, South Carolina. In the first census of the United States in 1790 they can be found in the Charleston District. Edward Campbell (sometimes spelled Cambel) appears with three free whites male, age sixteen years and upward; two females; and seventeen slaves. In the later half of the 1790's, Edward and his family moved from Saint Bartholomew Parish to the upper reaches of the Old Marion District of South Carolina, on the northern side of the Little Pee Dee River. This is in between the Kintyre Church area and Hamer, in the now dead village of Harleesville, which is now part of Dillon County, South Carolina. They and the seventeen slaves were listed in the United States census in the 1800 and 1810 there.
      Edward's wife, Mary MacLellan, died circa 1816-1819 in the old Carmichael Township of Marion County on the northeast side of the Little Pee Dee River, between Little Rock and Hamer, in the present Dillon County, South Carolina. She is buried in the old McDuffie Cemetery. The last record of Edward to be found in Marion County was when he sold his land to Neil McCormage of Robeson County, North Carolina. According to the a message I received from Marty Grant, who is also connected the Campbells living in Dillon, South Carolina, " this was the last deed of Edward Campbell in this area and it was witnessed by Duncan and Daniel Campbell." These were more than likely his sons.
      According to Mr. W. W Sellers, of Marion County, South Carolina, who wrote 'A History of Marion County, South Carolina and it's People' in 1901, he makes reference to Edward Campbell. He quotes on page 320:
      "Edward Campbell was the first of the family of that name that settled north of Little Pee Dee. He came from Scotland with a family of children and settled       near where Hamer Station, where the Florence Railroad is located; the land on which he lived is now owned by Neill McDuffie. He was a sturdy old             Scotchman; his wife was Mary MacLellan, and others of her name and quite a colony came across the ocean with old Edward, some settling in Marion       County, South Carolina. Old Edward, after living here many years, went West, and all his family went with him except his son, Duncan Campbell, who had       married and settled on the Little Pee Dee, and lived near Hayes Swamp; he came from Scotland with his father, Edward. Duncan owned a large body of land       and he married Margaret MacEachern. They raised a family of three sons and five daughters."
      Around 1819-1820, Edward Campbell left South Carolina with his son Charles, and Charles' wife, Nancy MacEachern, and his daughters, Mary, Mary's husband John MacColl, and Christian who was still unmarried. They came with small group of Scot pioneers, and traveled through Pensacola, up the Escambia River on the east bank, near where Campbell's Creek flows into Chumuckla. They settled on the east and west banks of the Escambia River. Some of Edward's descendants still live in and around Chumcuckla, Jay,Florida, which is now part of Santa Rosa County, Florida, and Pensacola, Florida, a part of Escambia County, Florida.
      There was no Federal Census taken in Florida until 1830, but there was information gathered about these early Scot settlers who migrated to the Panhandle region ofWest Florida. In 1820, the Spanish government who still maintained a fort in Pensacola, becames alarmed at seeing these foreigners within their mists. The Spanish Governor sent an officer out to get a count of how many citizens were there, how much livestock they owned, and how much land was under cultivation. Upon the realization these foreigners posed no threat to them, and that they actually benefited from the Scots' presence since they brought farm produce and meats to the market place in Old Pensacola to sell, the Spanish people come to accept them. No longer was they totally dependent on shipment of goods from Spain. Although a formal treatywas madewith Spain in 1819 which provided for a cession of Florida, by Spain to the United States, it wasn't until July of 1821 before the area was actually turned over to the United States. So the first Federal Census taken in Florida was taken in 1830. There has been a census taken at the beginning of the each decade, listing only heads of families by name up to 1850. Beginning in 1850, each census had the name, sex, age, parents, and the place of birth or each family member.
      When Edward Campbell and his family settled in this region, this area was all part of Escambia County, Florida. In the late 1842, this large area was divided into three counties; thus Escambia County, Walton County, and Santa Rosa County was created. This can make searching for early ancestors who settled in this area very difficult. Added to this, the public records for Santa Rosa County, Florida were destroyed by a Courthouse fire in 1867. Public records before 1869 are contained in Judicial Center Building in Pensacola, Florida. Two such packets were found on Edward Campbell. Some of the records deal with the legal dispute Edward had with his youngest son, Daniel Campbell, before his death, and the administration of his estate after his death in 1837. Any public record for Santa Rosa County for the period preceding the late 1840's will be found in Escambia County, not Santa Rosa County.
      According to the book "Campbell and McCall Family History," published by Rachel Campbell, she states that sometime between 1829-1830 that Edward Campbell asked his friend and kinsman, John McArthur, to write a message to his youngest son, Daniel Campbell, who still resided in South Carolina, requesting Daniel to come to Florida to help him with the plantation. In 1829, his oldest son, Charles died, and Edward probably did need assistance afterwards. Edward said he would reward Daniel for his troubles. About 1830 Daniel Campbell did come to Florida, bringingt his three young daughters, Mary Ann, Flora Jane and Marth Christian with him, but no wife. He lived with his father for two years until the dispute over several slaves. In anger, Edward brought a suit against his son, Daniel, but he died in 1837 before the suit was settled.

[NA:HF, 25 Cong., 3 sess.:DS]
[Referred January 21, 1839]
To the Honorable Congress of the United States--

We whose names are undersigned, Citizens of the Western District of Florida, would respectfully represent to your Honorable body that whereas Government is instituted to promote the happiness of the people, in the accomplishment of which object it is necessary that wrongs should be redressed & rights enforced--and whereas it is the bounden duty of all good Government to develope the resources of the country under its controul, particularly where those resources may be of general benefit to the people--We therefore, a portion of your constituents, who have at all times & under all circumstances faithfully fullfilled all our duties which have devolved upon us as good & faithful Citizens, respectfully present to your Honorable body the following statement of facts which we earnestly urge you to take into serious consideration-- Yellow River, a tributary stream of Blackwater Bay, rises in the state of Alabama & pursuing a southerly course through West Florida, discharges its waters into Blackwater Bay, an arm of & conjoining the Bay of Escambia, about twenty miles east of the City of Pensacola-- About twenty miles of this River in Walton County, Florida, is skirted on either side by a body of rich & valuable land, which is now settled by about forty families & is capable of supporting a much larger population-- Many streams valuable for affording mill-seats & the large quantities of excellent timber of various kinds which skirt their borders, are tributary to this River; but the navigation which is naturally good for plying steamboars & other craft of the same draft of water, is at this time so obstructed for about fifty miles by hugh piles of drift wood which have become so matted together as to form rafts of considerable extent in different parts of the River, that its navigation unless cleared out is altogether impracticable-- Were these rafts however, removed, this River would be navigable for all boats necessary to be used here, from the settlements on its borders to Pensacola--& the lands & fine timber skirting its margins & its tributary streams would be greatly enhanced in value-- The people in this section of the country are now compelled, in the absence of water communication, to transport their produce over land for forty miles before they reach navigable water which may float their produce to the nearest market and if they continue on by land, the distance is lengthened to sixty miles in extent, is incurred-- all these inconveniences & disadvantages may be remedied by the removal of the rafts of wood in Yellow River, which we are assured may be accomplished by the expenditure of about six thousand Dollars--

The right of petitioning for a redress of grievances is guarantied to us by the constitution under which we live, and the relative duty of hearing & carefully considering our petitions must devolve upon your Honorable body-- And it is with confidence that we appeal to your Honorable body to do what may be in your power to remove the grievance under which we labour & remedy the evils of which we complain-- Whilst other portions of our Territory have been nurtured & sustained by your fostering care & protection, we have been utterly neglected & have silently borne the wrongs of which we now complain; but we feel convinced that when they are made known to in a respectfull manner, by a faithfull & unobtrusive people, they will be immediately redressed-- We therefore humbly pray that your Honorable body will take this matter into serious consideration & that you will make the necessary appropriation to remove all obstructions to the navigation of Yellow River up to the Settlements on its borders which is, by the river, about one hundred miles above its disemboguement into Blackwater Bay & as in duty bound your petitioners will ever pray

Daniel D. Campbell listed above, I believe to be the Daniel Campbell who settled in the Walton County, Florida. He was born much earlier in time than Edward's son and he was living in Florida by 1819. I don't know if he was closely related to Edward Campbell, but since they were living in the same area they could be cousins.
The link with John McArthur. He appears to have settled in the Florida about the same time as Edward and his family. John McArthur's son, Augus, married, Mary McLellan, this could be a cousin of Edward's wife, Mary McLellan. The Campbells, McArthurs, and McLellan were all be found in the earlier records of Northwest Florida. Below is some information on John McArthur and his family, and the McLellans who settled in West Florida.

EMMETT CEMETERY, Old Berrydale Community, Santa Rosa County, Florida
      "The Emmett cemetery is sometimes referred to as the Lewis cemetery."
Recent documentation has properly confirmed that the old family cemetery was originally established by John and Catharine McArthur on land they had settled in 1838. It now is known that these Florida Pioneers, who first settled in Florida in 1822, were buried in this family cemetery. Their eldest daughter Diana and her husband Meredith Hobbs, and grandson Daniel C. McArthur, and his wife, as well as granddaughter Margaret McArthur Emmett, and her husband, now are known to have been buried in the cemetery. None of these early graves have headstones and none has previously been properly documented. Headstones for these unmarked graves will be placed by family members utilizing the documentation listed beside the names of those family members. The old family cemetery became known as Emmett Cemetery in 1900; so named by Robert A. Emmett in memory of his wife Margaret McArthur Emmett. The couple had previously joined the old McArthur land containing the family cemetery to their adjacent 160 acre Homestead. Although the Cemeteryhas been inactive and neglected for many years, the Emmett Cemetery Association desires to honor the established name. Descendants from each family will serve as Cemetery Trustees.

A Special Note from a Bob Campbell:
      I was looking over the notes on old Edward on Ancestry that you have done and things are looking great--good job, and a lot of work I'm sure. One thing I thought I would bring to your attention as it is easy to forget--John McArthur was Edward's next door neighbor on the 1810 Census of Marion Dist of SC and Duncan was only 2 doors away. Robert McColl wasn't far down the road either. Just thought you may be interested. Keep it up.

Keep up the good work Cuz.

Scottish Research:
Argyll Estate 1779
This is an index of names that appear in "The Inhabitants of Argyll Estate 1779", by Eric R. Creegan. The book attempts to list all of the inhabitants on the Duke of Argyll's estates in 1779. The census was taken on his instructions. Please note that not all the estate census survived. Females are often listed by their maiden names. The book itself is available on microfilm through the LDS church's Family History Centers. The film number is 0844784. The use of this index will allow the reader to determine wether it is worth the money ($5.75 in Canada ) to order the film. The residents of the Duke of Argyll's Kintyre estates were not included. Remember that spellings of last names varied over time and the enumerator's grasp of spelling. People are listed by page number they appear on. Use the Place Name index to cross reference.

** Iver Campbell listed on the 1779 Argyll Estate Census may have been our ancestor, Edward Campbell.
I wrote a letter to Duncan Beaton, the Scottish Contributing Editor for "The Clan Campbell Society Journal" who resides in Scotland and was familiar with this area and its history. After requesting information about Edward Campbell, born in 1757 in Argyll, Scotland, and if he could possibly provide me with any information on my ancestor. He wrote back to me of his findings. He stated, " Edward was not a common Scottish name, and most likely Edward would have been named Iver, Ivor or Evor ( Norse for Edward) at birth. After checking with some of the resources located in Argyll, Scotland he wrote that although he didn't find any Edward Campbell living in Argylle, but he did locate an Iver Campbell living near Knapdale. This is located north of Kintyre. Iver Campbell was listed above on the 1779 Argyll Estate Census was living with his wife, and no children were in the household. This would fit in with my research for the time frame. Also he mentioned there were McLellans living in the vicinity. Since Edward's wife was Mary McLellan, it is very possible this Iver Campbell was our ancestor.
Upon further study, I also learned that in early history, Knapdale, was under the domain of Clan MacMillan. There has also been some speculation that Edward or Iver Campbell's parents or grandparents may have been members of the Clan McMillan. For this reason I have added this information so that this can be studied more thoroughly at a later date. Also, his youngest son, Daniel Campbell, married Christian McMillan, so this may prove to be another family connection with the McMillan family. There's a good chance these familiew were well acquainted before they migrated to American.

Daniel D. Campbell
In Walton County, Florida which borders Santa Rosa County, Florida, there lived a man by the name of Daniel Campbell. I've added his biograpy because he was living very close to our ancestor. It was stated that he came to Florida from North Carolina, but it has also been suggested the Edward Campbell had family members that were also living in North Carolina. So I've added this for further investigation.

Biography of Daniel Campbell
One Daniel Campbell was born on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, in the year 1725; married Effie McInn in 1752. He moved to America, bringing his family, in time to serve as an American soldier during the Revolutionary War. He died on his birthday -- December 12, 1843 -- at the age of 118 years. His wife died the day previous to his death, and they were both buried the same day at the Sam Clary Cemetery,

Notes for M
According to the Church of the Later Day Saints, Mary McLellan was born about 1759 on the Isle of Islay, Scotland. She married Edward Campbell sometime around 1779. Their first child, Charles Campbell was born in 1780 , and they had five more children, Duncan, Mary, Daniel, Christian and another female child that died young, before they migrated to Charleston, South Carolina. We know that they were living there when the first census was taken in 1790. Shortly after this the moved to the upper reaches of the Little Pee Dee River, a part of the old Marion District of South Carolina.. Mary died in this area sometime around 1816 and she was buried in the McDuffie Cemetery. We know that her husband, Edward Campbell sold his land in South Carolina after his wife's death and that he migrated to northwest Florida sometime around 1819, along with several of his grown children. He settled in Escambia County, Florida along the Escambia River, along with some other Scot settlers.. In 1842, this became part of Santa Rosa County. There were some McLellan listed on the 1850 Federal Census for Santa Rosa County, Florida and I think they might be related to Mary McLellan. I've also been contacted by another McLellan researcher who said that Mary McLellan father was John McLellan, and that she had several brothers. I have listed them, but I have been able to verify these records. But according to the book by W.W. Sellers, he stated the Edward Campbell brough a large number of his wife's clan, the McLellans with him, so perhaps her father migrated with them. I have listed McLellan living in the South Carolina and Florida region in my notes to see if they are family members

Excerpt from W.W. Sellers' "History of Marion County"
transcribed and contributed to Marion County SCGenWeb

Alexander McLellan and his brother, Malcolm, came to this country from Scotland, in the close of the eighteenth century, and settled on the lands on which some of their descendants now live and own. Alexander was married in Scotland, to Mary McKinnon, and lived there for some time after his marriage, and several children were born to them there, who died in infancy; one a lad, named John, died after he settled here. Of the children to reach maturity, there were four sons, Daniel, Duncan, Archie K., and Colin and one daughter Flora.

There was another family of McLellans in the county. The first of them known to the writer was Rev. Archie McLellan, and a blacksmith; he lived on the south side of Catfish, on Pigeon Bay; he was a local Methodist preacher; he married a Miss Buie; had and raised a considerable family of several sons and daughters. He also had two orphan nephews, son of a deceased brother whom he raised - their names were John and Angus McLellan. [Sons and daughters mentioned by Mr. Sellers: Peter, Enos, Elizabeth and a daughter who married a Mr. Moore.]
--A History of Marion County, W.W. Sellers (1902)

In the except by W. W. Sellers, I believe that Alexander and his brother, Malcolm McLellan was members of Mary McLellan family. I also think they migrated to America with her and her husband, Edward Campbell around 1788.

GRAVES MOVED FROM THE Lock – McDaniel – McDuffie – McLellan Cemetery
In the middle 1990’s (14) graves where moved from the Lock – McDaniel- McDuffie- McLellan Cemetery to the Kentyre Cemetery. Those graves are located on Row M numbers 19 thru 23 and Row N numbers 10 thru 18. Names are….Martha R. McDuffie, Flora J. McDuffie, Catherine C. McDuffie, Daniel McDuffie, Duncan McDuffie…………Neill McDuffie, Mary A. McDuffie, N.D. McEachern, Mary M. McDuffie, Alexander D. McDuffie, Sallie McDuffie, Geogre A. McDuffie, James D. McDuffie, Nancy McDuffie.

Since there are a lot of McLellans that are buried in Kentyre Cemetery, I believe that some of these may be family member of Mary McLellan who married Edward Campbell about 1779 in Scotland. Any possible connection may be found at a later date.

Note per per Debbie McLellan on the the McLellan:

Mary McLellan born 1759 Isle of Islay Scotland,was the daughter of John McLellan and Unknown? her brothers and sisters were Archie he married Christian Buie, Donald he married Mary MacArthur, Angus, Malcolm he married Flora, Daniel married Margaret McGoogan, Alexander married Mary McKinnon, andJohn McLellan.This is how I tie in Malcolm and Flora had Catherine and Neil McLellan, Neil was born 1790 in Scotland he had three children, Malcolm, John, and Angus. John was born in 1820 in Marion County...he married Mary unknown? They had John William McLellan born 1848 in Marion that married Loucinda, they had John William McLellan born 1869 in marion, S.C. , Neil McLellan, Lillie, Anne, Jesse, Enos......all of these were born in Marion
County S.C., now This last J.W.

1830 Federal Census of Escambia Co. (east of Escambia River), Western Florida Territory
(Area of present-day Santa Rosa County, Florida)

**CAMPBELL, E. ?(Mrs.) c, e, o, s

In the 1830 Federal Census for Escambia County, Florida, Western Florida Territory, there was listed a Mrs. E. Campbell listed as the head of the household, and I believe this person to be the wife of the deceased Charles Campbell. The E. could be the middle initial for Edward, as that was his father's name. Charles Campbell died the summer of 1829, prior to the census. According to the census, there were 1 free white male, 10-15 years, 1 free white male 20-30 years, 1 free white female, 5-10 years, and 1 free white female, 30-40 years living in the home.

In the 1850 Federal Census for Santa Rosa County Florida, Nancy McEachern appears as a 50-year-old white female from Scotland, and the wife of Elijah Gaylor of Georgia, a farmer with 100 acres of land.

I believe this was Mary McLellan, grave site, the wife of Edward Campbell. She was a Native of Scotland and she died when she was about forty years old. I think Alexander McLelland and Malcolm was possibly her brother who also traveled with Edward Campbell and his wife Mary McLellan.

Notes for C
      Christian Campbell, the youngest daughter to survive infancy of Edward Campbell and Mary McLellan came to America as a infant. When her father, Edward Campbell, made his journey west to Florida, Christian was still unmarried. Later. she married James Spillman but there was no children born of this union. John Spillman was listed on some of the early Florida Census. Christian Campbell Spillman was also involved in the Court Case when her father sued his son, Daniel Campbell, over some slaves he owned. Her father died in 1837 before the suit was settled. When Daniel tried to be appointed as executor of the estate of Edward Campbell, she once more intervined, letting the courts know that he should not be appointed since the majority of her father estates was the slaves, and it was still being haggled over in the courts on how this would be proceed.
