Wife: Eliza Whipple born in New York abt 1835/6. Married 11 May 1860 in Porter, Van Buren Co., MI.

Note: on the 1870 census for Hartford, Alonzo's children Annette Campbell, Martin Campbell and Estella Campbell are living with the Whipples. Mary J. Whipple is possibly Eliza's mother, and she is living with her blind son Isaac Whipple (age 27) together at the home of son John Whipple (25), his wife Susan and their baby girl Bertha. Another son George Whipple (23) is also living in the same household. Alonzo and Eliza are not listed on this census, enumerated 24 Aug 1870.

On an earlier census for Decatur, Van Buren, Mi, enumerated 29 June 1870, there is a listing for Alonzo Campbell, his wife Louisa, son Martin b. 1863, daughter Stella b. 1867, and 11 yr. old Annette Bowen. There is no mention of relationship on this census or why Annette would have surname Bowen in June and Campbell in Aug.

There must have been upheaval in the Campbell family in 1870 because Mother Eliza/Louisa isn't on following census records.

There is a death certificate for Martin who died 1 Jun 1878 of Lung Fever in Decatur, MI. at age 16, but the parents listed are John and Mary Campbell, so maybe another family member took him in because father Alonzo died 2 years before that.
