In Walker's Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in Illinois it reads "Enos Campbell, a Scotsman, early espoused the cause of the Colonies. He enlisted in New Jersey, serving six years, for which service he was pensioned. After the war he removed to Pennsylvania and from there to Ohio, thence to
Sangamon County in 1835. Mr. Campbell lies buried in Salisbury Township." The History of the Early Settlers of Sangamon County p. 170 gives the biography of Enos Campbell "born about 1758, either in Scotland or near Trenton, N. J., soon after the arrival of his parents in America. He enlisted in the Revolutionary army at seventeen years of age and served six or seven years until the British army left the American shores. Mr. C. drew a pension to the end of his life. Enos Campbell and Damaris Nowee were married in New Jersey and moved to Uniontown, Fayette County, Penn., where they had nine children and moved about 1806 to Butler County, Ohio where they had one child and the family moved to Sangamon County, Ill., arriving in the fall of 1835 in what is now Gardner Township. Some of the children had arrived before and some never came." Enos Campbell died June 2, 1838. Pensioned for service: S35205 NJ
Enos Campbell is buried in the Sackett Cemetery, Northeast of Pleasant Plains, Sangamon Co. Location ¼ mile East and ¼ mile North from Rt 97 and 4.75N. Southeast of Salisbury. In E part of Northwest ¼ of ¼ section 4. T16N R6W, Third P.M.
In Barringer‟s Sangamon County Cemeteries 1971, it says "Gardner Township – Section 4 – about 100 yards north of the home of Max and Eleanor Tolan and north of the road. It is fenced but completely overgrown in trees and weeds. Many of the stones are completely covered with grass and others knocked down and broken by fallen trees. The cemetery is listed in the Illinois Veterans Commission records as the Garrett Cemetery.
Thomas Sackett owned this land in 1858 and Thomas Garrett in 1894. The Cemetery is obviously one of the oldest in this area. Buried here is Enos Campbell, Revolutionary soldier and probably buried here, since he lived nearby and was related to Campbell was Barzilla Clark, Revolutionary soldier, though his gravestone is missing." The Springfield Chapter DAR placed a grave marker on Enos Campbell's gravesite on January 12, 1973 but apparently it is missing.Springfield Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution coordinated the repair of Enos Campbell's stone. After its completion a rededication ceremony to remark his grave was held August 16, 2014.
