They resided at "The Oaks" in Nottoway County.Thomas Campbell was a prominent lawyer, and was elected to the legislature when only twenty-one years of age. He was the second president of the Southside Railroad. He attended William and Mary College.
After his mother died,his father, Dr. Archiball Algernon Campbell wished to marry his first wife's sister, Martha. This was contrary to the old English, and also, the Virginia law at that time, which forbade a man to marry his deceased wife's sister, and so the couple were planning an elopement. Thomas Harris Campbell, being a member of the legislature, asked his father to wait a few months until the legislature convened. He promised to have the law repealed, which he did, and acted as his father's best man at the wedding.
