Charles W. Campbell passed away July 22nd at his home in East Sangerville, after being in failing health nearly a year. Mr. Campbell was born April 29,1844, on the farm where he died, the son of William and Abby (Hobbie) Campbell. The Campbells were among the early settlers of the town, coming there from Buckfield in 1825.
Mr. Campbell was a man of absolute integrity and abstemious habits, a kind and indulgent husband and father whose home-life centered and bounded his affections. He was a good citizen, and though of a retiring and self-effacing nature, he nevertheless took a great interest in public affairs, measuring everything by the democratic standard of "special privilege to none." He was an usually well-read man and had kept a diary of daily events from 1872 up to July 4th,1916.
He was united in marriage to Anna A. Stedman of Foxcroft May 5,1880,who, with a son, Fred S., and Doris Rowell Campbell, who lived with them as a daughter, survives him.
Funeral services were held the following Monday at the home. The bearers were E. A. Drake, Geo. N. Lebroke, S. A. Knowlton and Geo. T. Flanders. The interment was in East Sangerville cemetery.
