Excerpts below - Is this "your" George Campbell? Different date of birth, different date of marriage than what you supplied. If this is not "your" George, you'll need to post your census information, children's names, parents or George, etc. - whatever you have on him - so the forum can correctly identify "your" George.

[This George is the son of Hugh Campbell, who is the son of Ezra Martin Campbell - see website]

George Campbell, resident of this community for three quarters of a century passed away Wednesday of last week, March 23, 1927 at his home southeast of Panora [Guthrie County, Iowa]. He was born at Indianapolis Indiana on January 27, 1837, thus making his age at the time of death 90 years, 1 month, and 24 days. He was 4th of 11 children born to Hugh Campbell and Cynthia Kimberly Campbell.

He first came to Iowa in 1852, he and his father making the trip from Indiana for the purpose of locating a home in this section. They returned to Indiana and in September 1853, the family came to Guthrie County where they took up a homestead on the site now occupied by the Homer Canady farm.

Mr. Campbell enlisted in Co. I, 29th IA Inf. in 1862 and served with the Union forces throughout the remainder of the Civil War being mustered out in 1865.

On April 29, 1866 he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Ann Batschelet, and on May 1 moved to the farm which they have since made their home. To them were born three children, all of whom survive. They are Zenas Campbell of Navasota Texas, Mrs. Grace Allen of Panora and Clarence Campbell of Elgin Illinois.

Funeral services were held at the Freedom church last Friday afternoon. Interment was made at East Cemetery.
