William was the son of William Carter and Frances Elvira O'Bryant Campbell. He went to Vanderbuilt University to study Medicine. He came back to Weatherford, Parker County to practice. He was the horse and buggie doctor by going to wherever he was called.

His first wife was Ann Adams, whom he married in 1884. They had the following children:
*Beatrice Campbell (1869-?)
*Price Campbell (1890-?)
*Abbie Campbell (1892-?)
*Wilson Campbell (1896-?)

William married a second time to Ida Leigh Barnett Campbell. They had one daughter:
*Illona Campbell (1899-1994)

In 1925, the Campbell Memorial Hospital was decidated to him. He was a prominate doctor in Weatherford up to the time that he retired from medicine.

He had a vision for Texas, that millions of people would live in his beloved state and that every acre would be covered with fruits and flowers.

(When in Weatherford in 1981, I was visiting, I had a chance to see the Campbell house. It was a grand two-story Victorian. I would have loved to have seen it when the Campbell family lived in it. I hope that someone bought the house and restored it to its granduer.)
