CAMPBELL's in Otay San Diego
Posted by: stillsearching (ID *****8765) Date: June 13, 2008 at 05:45:13
  of 1586

I'm seeking anyone with any connections to these CAMPBELL's who emigrated to Alberta Canada and California US from Durness Sutherland Scotland:

John CAMPBELL b.c 1869 in Durness Sutherland Scotland,

George CAMPBELL b.c 1872 in Durness Sutherland Scotland d.1940 in Alberta Canada, George married Gladys STRANGE, they had one daughter; Geraldine.

Isabella CAMPBELL b. 1877 in Durness Sutherland Scotland d.1959 in Lloydminster Canada, Isabella married James CLUTTERBUCK, their children; Mary & Thomas.

John & wife Flora went to Alberta Canada circa 1904 with their twins Ewen & Maisie(Mary)b.1903 in Scotland. In Alberta, John & Flora had several more children. John & his brother George helped to found the school in "Durness" Alberta, named after their native Durness Sutherland Scotland.

In 1906ish John's mother Elizabeth (Bessie) ROSS CAMPBELL, with her daughter Isabella also emigrated to Alberta Canada. Bessie was the widow of Thomas CAMPBELL whose parents were Hugh CAMPBELL & Mary MACKAY. Thomas had died in 1885 in Keodale Sutherland.
Thomas was brother to my GGGrandmother Magdalene Susannah Dunlop CAMPBELL who married George Henry ROBSON, immigrated to Australia in 1852 the year of their marriage in Durness Suth.

In 1917 John, Flora CAMPBELL and children moved to Otay, San Diego, California - for the warmer weather. They have been found there in the 1920 & 1930 Californian census.
Their children:
Ewen b.1903 in Scotland (twin to Maisie) d.? m.?
Maisie b.1903 d.? m.
Bessie b.1904 Alberta d.? m.?
Thomas b.1907 Alberta d.? m?
Catherine b.1913 Alberta d.? m?
Linda b.1914 Alberta (twin to Donald) d.? m?
Donald b.1914 Alberta d.? m?
John b.1915 Alberta d.? m?

Hoping someone connects to these CAMPBELL families.

This is a link to the book: "Forgotten Echoes: A History of Blackfoot and surrounding area" compiled by the Blackfoot Forgotten Echoes Society in 1982. The link should take you to page 280 with stories about John & George CAMPBELL continuing onto pg 281. Many other families are mentioned in this wonderful history about early Canada, well worth the read
