I'm looking for information on the family of the Gilbert Campbell who married Prudence Osran. Gilbert appears to have been born in either Scotland or Northern Ireland in about 1680. He died in Augusta County VA in 1750.
Gilbert first appears of record in the Paxtang (or Paxton) area of Lancaster County VA where, in 1734, he is mentioned as owing 400 acres of land on the south side of Conodoguinet Creek, west of the Susquehanna River.
He next appears as receiving a Borden Grant in Augusta County VA on 6 July 1742.
Finally, Gilbert's will is found in Will Book I (p294), Augusta County, VA:
29 Aug. 1750. Gilbert Campbell's will, of forks of James River, plantationer-- Wife: Prudence Campbell, alias Osran; son, George (infant); son Charles (infant); dau. Elizabeth Woods, alias Campbell; son James; dau. Prudence Hays; dau. Sarah Campbell; dau. Lattice Campbell. Exrs: James Trimble, Thomas Stuart and Andrew Hays. Wit. James Thompson and Allison.
According to LDS (Film 1761200) Gilbert's parents are James Campbell and Susan Campbell. They had the following children:
2. As Gilbert's sister Mary Campbell is generally reported to be the wife of Michael Woods, does anyone have any information as to the spouses of Gilbert's other brothers and sisters.
3. Does anyone know where in Scotland or Ulster Gilbert and Prudence were married?
Thanks for any assistance.
