Maggie (Archer) Campbell was born in 1835 in Tennessee, fourth child and second daughter of Isaac Archer and Jane (Jennie) Brown. She married in 1851 at age 16 in Platte County, Missouri to Nathaniel Campbell, who was 30 at that time. They had 10 children together. They began their family in Weston, Missouri, but moved in 1855 to Stranger Township, Leavenworth County, Kansas. They remained in Leavenworth County through the Civil War, moving with her parents to near Pleasant Hill, Missouri about 1866. Two more children were born there.

Maggie's husband did not serve in the Civil War, probably due to poor health, but her 60-year-old father served in the 1st Missouri (Confederate) Cavalry for a year, and her younger brother John served as an officer for most of the war, losing his left arm at Vicksburg. Two other brothers, Hugh and Billy, served as guerrilla partisans under George Todd.

Maggie's mother died in 1869, and her father moved to Texas within less than a year, joining two of her brothers. She and her husband returned to Kansas a few years later, this time to Wyandotte County. Nathaniel Campbell died in Kansas City, KS in 1883.

Maggie survived her husband 34 years, dying in Kansas City, Kansas in early 1918, following a fall that broke her hip. She survived all her siblings.

My thanks to Mark Archer for the wonderful photograph of Margaret (Archer) Campbell, from his collection.
