d/o Silas Campbell & Mary Ann Cole who were married in 1842 and divorced in Feb. 1845 in Highland Co., OH. Two children were named in their divorce: Spencer James Campbell about age 2 and Alice Jane Campbell, an infant of the breast (a nursing baby). Both children were living with separate unrelated families in the 1850 & 1860 census so the whereabouts of their parents is still unknown. Note: Her birth year as 1844 is supported by parent's divorce record and early census records.
