Matilda was my 2nd Great-Grandmother.

She was the fourth of seven children born to Archibald McBride HILL and Mary Floyd RUTLEDGE.

She was married to Enos Mitchell CAMPBELL when she was 22 years old in January 1853 in Georgia, USA.

Enos fought for the South in the Civil War and was taken prisoner. He was held at Rock Island Prison in Illinois and died there in January 1865 of smallpox. Family stories have always said that Enos was sneaking home at night to visit his family, since his regiment was stationed nearby. Some men in his regiment were jealous of him, so they turned Enos over to the North. Matilda's brother, Charles Hill, was commander of Enos's regiment.

Enos and Matilda had six children together:

Charles H. Campbell (c1853-bef 1899), wife Ellen P. Hawthorn; John E. Daniel "Dan" Campbell (1855-1930), wives 1) Martha Beashears 2) Mary L. "Mollie" Gilcrease 3) May Clark; Archibald Thomas "Archie" Campbell (1856-1913), wives 1) Lucinda Bellezora "Lucy" Brashears 2) Rachael M. Holder; Richard Wiseman "Dick" Campbell (1858-1922), wives 1) Lillie UNKNOWN 2) Anna Valera "Annie" Poindexter; Mary Elizabeth Campbell (1861-1934), husband George Washington Cornelison; Caroline M. "Carrie" Campbell (1864-1900), husbands 1) John Davis Phipps 2) John Collet.

According to a granddaughter, Allyne Campbell Brust, after Matilda's son Archie's 1st wife died, Matilda lived with him and his three children for awhile. Matilda lived with her daughter Mary Elizabeth in Texas and Oklahoma until her death at the age of 73 in 1905.
