Phebe CAMPBELL, consort of the venerable John CAMPBELL, was born at Uniontown Penn., April 13, 1791, and departed this life Feb. 10, 1881, at the advanced age of eighty-nine years, nine months and eighteen days. Her parents, Barzilla and Nancy CLARK, removed to Maryland about the year 1800. Then emigrated to Butler county, Ohio in 1822. Mrs. Campbell embraced religion and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, at thirteen years of age, and remained in that relation for seventy-seven years. She was united in marriage with her surviving husband in 1821. The family came to Sangamon county, Illinois, about fifty years ago. She became the mother of nine children—six sons and three daughters. Five of the sons and all of the daughters are living, useful and respected citizens. The family has resided in Clinton since 1833. For the past two years they have lived with their son, Lewis CAMPBELL, near this city, being to infirm to keep house. In her whole girlhood life she was accustomed to divine services held at her father's home by Methodist preachers. Her young heart was won by them to Christ while listening to their words of divine mercy and love. For years after the death of her parents, circuit preaching was held at her own house, and hundreds of times did she cheerfully minister the hospitalities of her home as reverently to those servants of God as the patriarch Sarah did to visiting angels. In all her after life, while her religious convictions were deep and strong, it was manifested in quiet meditation and in gentle words and good offices to her family and those who were her acquaintances. Having served her generation and after a slow, and often painful decline, the wheels of her life at last stood still. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. C. Rucker, who made a short discourse from the text, "These are they which came out of great tribulation and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." [Rev. 7, 14] She was anchored within the veil. Her aged companion will, ere long, join her company.
