Alexander Campbell
Birth: Feb. 18, 1783
Trenton
Mercer County
New Jersey, USA
Death: May 31, 1848
Trenton
Mercer County
New Jersey, USA

Alexander and his sisters, and the spouses, deeded a 1/4-acre lot in Trenton (their mother's share of their grandfather Alexander Carr's property) to Lucia Waddell in 1818. He was listed in Trenton, Mercer Co., NJ, in the 1830 & 1840 censuses, and was employed in "manufactures and trades" in 1840. He rented land on Front Street, Trenton, for many years. At the time of his death, he was living in White Hall (part of the Old Barracks), Trenton.

Alexander purchased a family plot in Mercer Cemetery after it opened, and several of his children and grandchildren were buried there. But he was laid to rest beside his wife and eldest son in the Presbyterian Churchyard.

IN MEMORY OF ALEXANDER CAMPBELL, who died May 31st 1848 Aged 65 Years 3 months and 13 days.

Affliction sore for years I bore,
Physicians were in vain.
At length God pleased to give me cure,
And freed me from my pain.
