From an obituary published in the "Stevens Point [Wisconsin] Daily Journal," December 9, 1882:
"Death of Charley Campbell
Charley Campbell of the town of Stevens Point, died on Saturday morning last, in the 53d year of his age. About a week before his death, he came in from his farm to consult a doctor and get some medicine for his wife, who was sick at home. On the trip he contracted a severe cold which prostrated him. He was confined to his bed, and taken with typhoid-pneumonia, from the effects of which he died. A short service was held at the house on Monday morning, by the Rev. W. Henry Watts, after which his remains were brought to this city, accompanied by members of the Masonic Lodge--of which society he was an honored member-- and taken to the Episcopal Church where the funeral was held. The remains were interred in the Episcopal cemetery with Masonic honors.
Charley Campbell was not known to many of the present residents here, but among the old settlers he had many warm friends. He had lived in the pinery for thirty-four years, and in his prime was one of the hardest working men on the river. An honest, warm-hearted man, a kind friend and neighbor and a loving husband and father has passed away, but his many good qualities will long live in the hearts of those who enjoyed his acquaintance. The death of Mr. Campbell seems all the more sad, as his wife is dangerously sick and was unable to attend the funeral. Eight children are also left to mourn his loss."
