Mary "Polly" Dole Campbell
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1823
Death: Apr. 3, 1909

She and her husband, Henry, moved quite frequently. In 1850 they lived in Cobb Co, GA where she was age 27, then in 1860 they lived in Cherokee Co, AL where she was age 35, then in 1870 they lived in Cleburne Co, AL where she was age 50, then by 1880 they were living in St. Clair Co, AL where she was age 66. Using the census records as a guide, Mary Dole Campbell was about age 86 at her death.

They had a house full of children, including Sarah, Caroline, Martha Jane who married William R. Campbell, William who married George Ann Willingham, Thomas, Harriet who married Joe Wood, John C. who married Harriett M. Johnson, Ellen who married Napoleon Bonaparte Gibbs (Bones), and George. Martha Jane and William were married in Cleburne County, Alabama in the early 1870's. Daughter Harriet married Joe Wood in Polk County, Georgia in April of 1876, so the family may have lived there for a short while.

April 8, 1909: Ragland. With regret we chronicle the death of Mrs. Henry Campbell, which occurred Saturday morning at the home of her son-in-law, Joe Wood. The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church Sunday afternoon and the remains were interred in the Ragland Cemetery. "Grandma Campbell" as she was affectionately designated by those who knew her, had lived to the ripe old age of 102 years. Her husband who died about two years ago was 105 years of age at his death.
