Cleary Campbell was one of the pioneers of lower Bald Eagle valley.
Charles Lukens mentions the fact that, when he came up to survey the officers' tracts, Cleary Campbell was settled upon the William Glass warrantee, upon which a part of the city of Lock Haven now stands.
In 1779 he retired to Penn's township, near Selinsgrove, but was among the first to return, and was assessor of Bald Eagle township in 1787.
He died on his place, near Howard, in August, 1809, leaving several children. William was his eldest son, Sarah Delong and Margaret Delong were his daughters; Allen Campbell his youngest son.
Sarah died in Liberty township, Dec. 9, 1857, in her eighty-fifth year. She was born in 1773, married first a McCloskey witha whom she had two children, afterwards, in time, married Jonathan Delong. She was highly regarded for her Christian character.
