Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Louisiana, Pike County, Missouri where some of both sides of my family has lived since before 1900. Most of my families ancestors are from Pike and Calhoun Counties in Illinois arriving before 1830 and Ozark County in Missouri arriving before 1860. My wife Patti Clayton Campbell's family is mostly from Virginia and lived in and around Norfolk. Born in Richmond, a Navy daughter, she was raised here and there but considers Fairfax City, VA home. Our research interests include Campbell, Emerick, Turnbaugh, Sisson, Shinn, Small, Staggs, and Crusman in my line and Clayton, Farrow, Stone, Lee, and Capps in her line.

Earl R. Campbell Mmorial # 98012088
Google - Seeking Michigan - This is a web site that has death certificates from 1897 thru 1920.
There is a PVT Earl R. Campbell who passed away at Base Hospital, Charleston Township, Kalamazoo County, Michigan. Interment was in Ill. This maybe your Earl.

RE: Looking for Wayland Balcom
Don't have any data on Wayland Balcom, but I did find Barbara Balcom's maternal grandparents (Henry & Lottie Cottle) in Hot Springs, Wyoming.

RE: Mercedes B (Campbell) Matter

My dad grew up in Dillon and we still have family there so we go up each year for a week. Dillon is a small town with not much to do so, time permitting, I try to go to the cemetery and take as many photographs as I can. I live north of Atlanta in the growing town of Woodstock. The traffic and congestion makes Dillon more and more attractive each day!

I would bet she is in Dunnstown cemetery but there doesn't seem to be a record of her anywhere. Sorry!

John Obie Hurst Campbell 129647019
Walked through plots 48 and 45 today and did not see him. There were two other Campbells in Plot 48 and near each other and the marker next to one of them is destroyed. Also according to a cemetery census done in 2004 there was a John Obie Hurst Campbell in Plot 48. Sorry could not find it but if you would like to see the photos of the other Campbells including the destroyed marker then let me know. If you happen to call the cemetery office and confirm his plot location, I'd be happy to go through again.

RE: John Campbell 1904-1925
I walked through Plot 48 yesterday and did not see his grave marker, but it is a huge plot with a lot of markers that have been damaged or broken off completely due to the lawnmowers. I will check Plot 45 today and if I do not see it will probably walk through 48 one more time.

John Campbell 1904-1925
There is a John Obie Hurst Campbell 1903-1925 at the Cemetery, not 1904-1925 and not in plot 45 though. Is this the one you are looking for?

RE: Bonnieve Ulery Connell

I do not live in or near Calhoun County, but my ancestors go back several generations there. To aid in researching my family history, I have managed to put together a pretty good library of books related to that part of Illinois. Most of my information pertains to the southern half of the county where most of my relatives lived.

Old newspapers are one of the greatest sources I have found for genealogy research. I combed through old copies of the Alton Evening Telegraph to find information about Bonnie and her father.

I combined the newspaper articles with what I could find in public records (census, marriage, death, cemetery) and tried to figure out the story. Your information helped me see how several pieces fit together.

In regard to your question about your Campbell ancestors, it looks like most of your family was from the Hamburg area. That's a bit farther north than the majority of my relatives.

I checked my latest cemetery book, but there was nothing listed at Indian Creek Cemetery for your great-grandfather or your great-great-grandfather. That doesn't mean they're not at Indian Creek, it just means no record was found. Many people get left out of cemetery records for one reason or another. does have your Harrison Porter Campbell (born 07 Nov 1858; died 24 Nov 1910) listed with a burial at Indian Creek Cemetery. I don't know what the source is for that, but maybe you can contact the person who put it on their site.

You may have to cut and paste this link:

With so many other members of the Campbell family buried at Indian Creek, it seems very likely that Harrison Porter Campbell and his father would also be there.

Good luck with your search!
