Jane Winters was married to James Campbell who died as a result of (injuries suffered during) the Revolutionary War, thus she was entitled to land as the widow of James. In 1797 she brought three of her children to a location somewhat south of what is now Edinboro and claimed a thousand acres for the family. She left her two oldest sons, John and William, with her daughter, Hannah, on the new homestead and left for Eastern Pennsylvania and the other three children. In the Spring of 1798 she returned with the other children and established the Campbell home site.
Apparently James Campbell died sometime in the early to middle 1790s as children were still born of him after 1790 and Jane was a widow in 1797.
Her oldest daughter, Nancy married a member of the original Erie County survey group, Job Reeder. They that located in what was to be Washington County, on March 1, 1880, the first marriage in the vicinity.
Later Jane married Robert Fitz RANDOLPH 1779 - 1817 and moved to Meadville, PA. After the death of Robert Randolph, Jane returned to the Campbell homestead in Washington County, remaining there until her death in 1843.
