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

Alexander was the son of John Campbell and Mary Carr. He married Mrs. Ann (Yard) Toomey by 1807. They had 8 children together, all of whom are linked below.

Alexander and his sisters, and their 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. Alexander 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 on Front Street, Trenton. White Hall is the northern part of the Old Barracks and was originally the officers' quarters. For many years it was a separate address with rented rooms, when the southern and northern portions of the Barracks structure were transected by a continuation of Front Street. The restored Barracks structure is now, again fully on Barracks (formerly Willow) Street.

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

Affliction sore for years I bore,
Physicians were in vain.

And freed me from my pain.
