Notes for ALEXANDER CAMPBELL:
Lords of the North - James K McDonell &
Robert B Campbell, ISBN 1-89182071-2
pgs 61-62
"Alexander Campbell MLA (1734-1800) was a
member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) in
Upper Canada, a business man and an army
officer. Prior to leaving his home at Killin
Scotland Alexander was commissioned as an
officer in the 42nd Regiment of Foot (the
Black Watch). He and his brothers, Moses (b.
1733) a sergeant, and James (b.1741) who were
both with him in the Black Watch regiment
when it landed at New York City in June 1756
were immediately dispatched to Albany New
York to be trained in the art of bush
fighting. Their first action in North
America was in the summer of 1758, a tragic
assault on the French fort at Ticonderoga.
The Highlander failed to overcome the
defenders and suffered 314 fatalities during
the eight hour battle. Listed among the
wounded was Lieutenant Alexander Campbell.
After resigning his commission Alexander
took up residence in Schenectady, NY. During
the years prior to the American Revolution
Alexander married twice and purchased large
land holdings in the Mohawk Valley and owned
and operated a store and tavern in
Schenectady. Later he established another
store in Schoharie, NY and in 1775 moved his
family to Schoharie. However because he did
not support the American rebels his store in
Schoharie was looted and vandalized and so
Alexander moved back to Schenectady.
After Alexander moved back to Schenectady,
his father-in-law Alexander Van Sice, a
revolutionary, had Alexander and other
Loyalists thrown in jail again for warning
Sir John Johnston of his impending arrest
thus giving Sir John enough lead time to
round up his family and tenants and escape
north to Canada. In 1778 Alexander after
refusing to take an oath of allegiance to the
rebels was expelled from the USA.
Alexander was allowed to leave for Canada
with only those possessions that could be
carried in two wagons. After arriving in
Montreal he moved his family to near New
Johnstown (now called Cornwall) Ontario.
>From 1702 to 1797 Alexander was an MLA in
Toronto, representing Dundas county west of
Cornwall.
Alexander was born in 1734 at Killin,
Perthshire, Scotland the son of James
Campbell and wife Elizabeth Buchanan. His
first marriage was to Catherine Vetter in
October 1765 at Christ Lutheran Church in New
York City. Catherine died in 1767 and there
is no record of any children from the
marriage with her. Alexander's second wife
was Magdalena Van Sice whom he married in May
1768 at the Dutch Reformed Church in
Schenectady, NY. Alexander and Magdalena had
14 children: Catherine (1769-1772), Margaret
(1771-1772), James (1774-1776), Margaret,
James E., John D., Alexander, Mary, Peter,
Nancy, Elizabeth, Colin, Richard Duncan, and
Catherine. Alexander died on October 24,
1800 at New Johnstown (Cornwall) Ontario.
John Duncan Campbell (1773-1835) one of
Alexander's 14 children later became a
partner in the North West Company. When the
North West Company joined with the Hudson Bay
Company in 1821 he retired to Montreal and
shortly after he married Eliza McDonald
daughter of John Mcdonald of Garth another
legendary partner of the North West Company.
In 1824 Eliza's father John sold the McDonald
estate to John Duncan Campbell and Eliza.
This home was named 'Inverarden' and it
remained in Campbell hands until 1965 when
ownership was transferred to 'The Historic
Sites and Monuments Board' who operated
Inverarden House as a museum.
John Duncan Campbell's great Grandson, James
Alastair Grant Campbell BA LLB QC (b.1922) is
a veteran of WWII, a former Crown Attorney
for Carleton county Ontario and was
Progressive Conservative Member of Parliament
(MP) for Stormont county from 1958 to 1862
and was also a Member of the Municipal Board
of Ontario.

Notes for JOHN DUNCAN CAMPBELL:
Mr. Beaudry,
The file you sent me on the Campbells is not
the Northwest Company bunch.
Like the McGillises, my family were loyalists
who settled in eastern Ontario circa 1784.
My great great grandfather, John Duncan, was
born in Schoharie, New York in 1773 and
became a clerk in the NW Co. sometime in the
late 1790s. He was given a partnership in
1803 at the first annual meeting held at the
newly-built Fort William. For most of his
career he was in charge of the English River
(now Churchill River) district in northern
Saskatchewan. The Hudson Bay Company
arrested him for his activites in support of
the Seven Oaks affair and he was not made a
factor when the two companies merged in
1821. He died at our old family home,
Inverardine, in 1835 after marrying Eliza
McDonald the eldest daughter of John McDonald
of Gart and Nancy Small (who herself was the
daughter of Patrick Small [McDonald's cousin]
and an unknown native woman. I hope that
this information is of interest to you.

Generation No. 3

3. COLIN3 CAMPBELL (ALEXANDER2, JAMES1) was
born November 25, 1787 in River Beaudette,
Lake St Francis, Glengarry, CAN, and died
November 09, 1853 in Red River Settlement.
He married ELIZABETH MCGILLIVRAY, daughter of
JOHN MCGILLIVRAY.

Notes for COLIN CAMPBELL:
Colin is identified in FMN ID 658 as
European. He is also identified in MF pages
149, 175 and 788. He is buried at St Johns
(Winnipeg, Manitoba).
Colin's biography is on page 431 in the book
"Documents Relating to the North West
Company" edited by W. Stewart Wallace and
published originally as Champlain Society
Publication XXII, subsequently published by
Greenwood Press, Publsihers New York 1968. It
reads:
"Campbell, Colin (1787-1853) was born at
River Beaudette, Lake St Francis, in
Glengarry, Canada, on November 25, 1787, the
son of Alexander Campbell, a United Empire
Loyalist, who represented Cornwall in the
first legislature of Upper Canada, and his
wife Magdalena Van Sice. He entered the
service of the North West Company as a clerk
in 1804, doubtless through the influence of
his elder brother, John Duncan Campbell. He
spent most of his life in the Athabaska
district. In 1813 Daniel Williams Harmon met
him at Dunvegan; and he was described as an
accountant in the Athabaska in 1816. He was
taken over by the Hudson's Bay Company in
1821, and he remained in the Athabaska
district until 1846. In 1828 he was promoted
to be chief trader; but he never attained the
rank of chief factor. After several years
spent in charge of the Kenogamissee district
he retired from the fur trade on June 1,
1853; and a few months later he died, on
November 9, 1853, at the Red River
Settlement. He married Elizabeth, daughter of
the Hon. John McGillivray."

Thanks for sending that Oregon Web Site.
It's got a lot of good
information. Here's something I found on it
. It's about the group that
left the Red River Settlement in 1841 and
went to Oregon. Here's the
site again (in case anyone is interested)
http://www.teleport.com/~sflora/timeline.htm

ON THE TRAIL FROM CANADA TO OREGON, JUNE 5
THROUGH OCTOBER 12, 1841:

The PUGET SOUND AGRICULTURAL COMPANY, under
the aegis of the HBC,
imported to the Northwest 21 families of
experienced British farmers and
herders along with superior breeds of sheep
and swine. Despite good
capitalization, the attempt to found an
agricultural colony promptly
failed. The "colonists" simply headed south
to establish their own farms
on free land. A total of 121 arrivals (19
households) went to two
stations in 1841: Cowlitz River landing on
the Columbia and another near
Ft. Nisqually (both in present-day Washington
State).

James DOUGLAS, who had warned Gov. Simpson
that Nisqually was poor
farm land, scouted for a site and assigned
families to their parcels in
November 1841. William BALDRA, John JOHNSON,
and Thomas OTCHINS (earlier
Oregon arrivals) transferred from the HBC to
the Puget Sound AC. Angus
MCDONALD, a HBC chief trader, was placed in
charge of the operation. A
few French Canadians were already settled in
the region (Simon PLAMANDON,
Francis FRAGINENET, Michel COGNOIR, and
Joseph ROCHBRUNNE).

James SINCLAIR led the immigration from the
Red River Country
(Manitoba) to the Nisqually and Puget Sound
region. The new emigrants to
Oregon Country included the David FLETTs, the
Charles MCKAYs, and the
three Bird sisters, daughters of Gov. James
Bird. Traveling via Ft.
Ellice, Ft. Carlton, Edmonton, Banff, and the
Whitman Pass, the emigrants
reached theupper Columbia River by August 12
and Ft. Walla Walla by Oct 4.

Most of the newcomers abandoned the Puget
Sound Agricultural
Company. All but the BIRSTONs, the CALDERs,
one FLETT brother, the TAITs,
and the JOYELLEs had left the Puget Sound
area by late 1842 to make homes
on the Tulatin Plains or the Willamette
Valley. Joe KLYNE left to join
the HBC's California brigade and one family
had stayed in the Kutenai
region.

A biography of James Sinclair was in 'The
Beaver', pgs 62-64, March
1925 Edition. James is also identified in
"Women of the Red River.' In
this book it states that he and Governor
George Simpson agreed that
colonizing Oregon with British settlers was
the way to hold it under the
British flag. In the winter of 1840 he and
George Simpson persuaded 23
Red River families to move to Oregon with all
their belongings, including
their horse and cattle.

The settlers started out in the Spring of
1841 led by James (Women
of the Red River, pg 21.)
When James returned from this trip he entered
into business relataions
with John Jacob Astor. In 1850 he made a
rapid trip to Oregon Territory,
crossing the Rockies through the Sinclair
pass, names after is 1841
expedition. He came home by way of the
Isthmus of Panama and New York,
visiting Havana on the way.

In 1854 he took his family to Oregon (except
Harriet) along with 14
other families. On arrival he took charge of
Fort Walla Walla. He was
killed on Mar 26, 1856 at the Cascades of
Columbia after a two day seige
of Fort Walla Walla by a force of Yakimas and
other Indians. The siege
was ended by the arrival of Lieutenant Phil
Sheridan with a body of US
cavalry. James is buried in the old military
graveyard at Vancouver,
Washington.

Hi All
Just thought I would pass this list
along. It is from The Washington
Historical Quarterly, Vol VII., No 3, July
1916. The article is titled
"The Sinclair Party - An Emigration Overland
Along The Old Hudson Bay
Company Route From Manitoba To The Spokane
Country in 1854. The journey
started on 5 May 1854 from what is now
Winnipeg, headed by James
Sinclair, son of William Sinclair. The
spelling of some of the names is
slightly different than what I have but I
have copied it from the article.

James Sinclair, age 50, with wife and 7
children
John Moar, age 50, with wife and 4 children
Roderich Sutherland, age 40, with wife and 1
child
William Rowland, age 50, with wife and
daughter
James Gibson, age about 65
William Gibson, age about 25
Miles Burston, age about 55, and wife
John Lyons, age about 50, wife and 2 children

Philip Bird, age about 50, with wife and 3
children
Arthur Bird, age about 40 year
Thomas Bird, age about 50 years
Charles Bird, age about 20 years
George Taylor, age about 35 or 40 years
Samuel Norn, age about 50 years
Thomas Brown, age about 50 years, with wife,
3 daughters and infant son
born enroute
Harry Brown, age about 24 years
John V. Campbell, age 22 years
Robert Flint, age about 35 years, and wife
James Whiteford, age about 55 years, with
wife and 2 girls
Peter Whiteford, age about 30, with wife and
1 child
Frank Whitford, age about 25
Andrew Whitford, age about 18
Donald Whitford, age about 15
John Childe, age about 15
Thomas Hudson, age about 55 years
Old Daniel, age about 60 years
Margaret Campbell, a single woman, age about
25
Margaret Rowland, a maiden lady, age about 40

Total 65

In a note it states that "in the attack on
the Dalles by the Yakima or
Klickitat Indians on March 26th, 1858, the
settlers took refuge in
Bradford's store; a chance shot through the
open door killed James
Sinclair,
who was then at the Dalles." There is also
mention of a Mr. & Mrs Robert
Fleet (not listed above) who had a child
while the group was camped at
Little Bow River. The child died within a few
days. The article was
written by John V. Campbell who was "born at
Fort Dumorgan, in the Peace
River Country". He states that his "father
was a Scotchman from Perth,
Scotland; my mother a half breed, half French
and half Indian, her maiden
name was Elizabeth McGilvrary".

Also came across William McKay's Journal for
1866-67 from the Oregon
Historical Quarterly, in two parts, published
Summer and Fall 1978.
Haven't had a chance to read it through yet.
Take care and enjoy Stan
