Campions in Carbondale, Pa., area

  of 693

My great-grandfather, Willis Llewellyn Campion, was born somewhere around Carbondale in the 1850's. His father (John or James?) was an English immigrant is said to have been killed in a logging accident on Elk Hill north of Carbondale when his son was small. The mother had taken off with another man and some of the children before this happened. I don't know if there are any other Campions in or from the northern part of the anthracite district, but I swear there was a judge named Thomas Campion listed in the World Almanac as based in Scranton when I was a kid (1960's). I'd appreciate further information, Thanks<Tom Campion
