Galveston Daily News, 9 September 1885
[Died] At Willis, Tex., September 8, Mrs. Ann W. Campbell, mother of Dr. C. C. and Archie R. Campbell, Esq., of Galveston; John Campbell, of Danville, and D. M. Campbell, of Willis, Tex.; Mrs. John H. Williams, of Baltimore, and Mrs. Robert Goree, of Knox county, Texas. Deceased was a daughter of ex-Governor Clark, of Georgia. She had resided in Louisiana some years before coming to Texas, some thirty years ago. Her family connections were unusually large and widely disseminated through the South. She was in the 84th year of her age. She was a lady of rare intelligence and mental force, which she preserved to the very last. She expired purely from the effects of age, and departed without a struggle, preserving her consciousness and composure to the last. She leaves many warm friends in Galveston as well as elsewhere, her long life, family associations, and amiable and interesting character endearing her to all with whom she became acquainted, and making her the idol of her descendants and relations.

Galveston Daily News, 15 September 1885
The Willis Index prints an extended obituary of the venerable Mrs. Ann W. Campbell, who died in that place last week. It says: Mrs. Campbell, who was the only daughter of Governor John Clarke, of Georgia, who was prominent in the politics of that State more than half a century ago, was born in the "Red Old Hills of Georgia," December 15, 1801. During the incumbency of her father she did the honors of the executive mansion with dignity grace and affability which won all hearts and added greatly to the popularity of the governor. She married Colonel John W. Campbell, and all her after-life has justified the promise of her girlhood. Left a widow with many children, she reared and educated them to be an honor to their mother, and, as she was, an ornament to society. Mrs. Campbell was the mother of twelve children, nine of whom lived to be married. No Spartan mother ever cared more faithfully for her household jewels than did she for the loved ones who formed her family circle. As a natural result her children fondly loved and deeply revered their tender mother, whose beautifully consistent life was one long and truthful exemplification of all the christian virtues. Rev. S. N. Barker conducted the burial services in a highly impressive manner, after which the venerable Dr. J. E. Scott, who had known deceased from his earliest childhood, made a few touching remarks upon the life and character of his departed friend.

from the MEMOIR of Ann Clark Campbell's daughter-in-law's brother Campbell Wood (1842-1914): "On the 10th of December, 1907, your sister, Josie, Mrs. Chas. E. Brown, after a long and painful illness, passed from life at her home in Seward, Alaska. . . Two months later, another, your sister Ella, passed from life at Mt. Zion Hospital, San Franciso, California, unattended by any of this family but tenderly cared for by newly made friends. Her remains lie in Willis, Montgomery County, Texas, by the side of her mother and Uncle W. B. Wood and D. M. Campbell's mother." (Ponton ms., pp. 13-14)
