Brief Summary for Participant – KIT # 47499
>
> Oldest Proven Campbell Ancestor: George Washington Campbell (abt. 1720) of Amherst/Nelson Co., VA, USA
>
> Summary: The earliest records show George Campbell living in Albemarle county, Virginia. He married Catherine (unknown) around 1745 and had 13 children. About 1761, he moved his family to Amherst County, VA and owned 480 acres in the Piney River area. When Nelson County was formed from Amherst, that 480 acres then became known as both counties as the river divides the two counties. Most of George’s descendants remained in Virginia but some did move away. Other surnames associated with this line are Goode, Wright, Cash, and Hudson. It is speculated that he may be the son of a Charles Campbell who come to Virginia from Ireland, accumulated his wealth here and then moved back to Ireland where he married, had children and died. It is speculated that his son George Campbell came back to Virginia, settled his estate in Virginia and remained.

> Summary: In the early 1800's John Campbell arrived in Jackson County from Virginia where he was born in about 1779. On May 17, 1819 he married Aney Webster in Madison country in the Alabama Territory and moved to Tennessee shortly thereafter. They then moved back to Alabama and we find them in Madison and Jackson county. We do not know for sure what county they were in, while living in Tenn. but there is a strong indication that they were going back and forth between Madison and Jackson counties in Ala. and Lincoln and Franklin counties in Tenn. John and Aney had 8 children.

> Oldest Proven Campbell Ancestor: Fountain Campbell, (1803)
>
> Summary: Family Rumor had it that Fountain's father died when he was young & he was sent back to the Roanoke Valley to be raised by relatives. His oldest son was named Fountain James Campbell {supposedly to honor himself & his father} & another son was also named James {my great-grandfather}. Family rumor passed on is all that I have for certain beyond Fountain & Wythe County, VA., as on Fountain James Campbell was born 1826 in Wythe County, VA and died of the typhoid epidemic of 1888 in Russell County, VA. I stay in touch with Fountain James Campbell, George W. Campbell, & James {for grandfather} & Cummings {for Preacher that Baptised, etc. family} & Henry {passed through family} Campbell descendants. The youngest son of Fountain Campbell ; John " Andrew " Campbell , I have yet to get in touch of any of his Descendants.
