Hello. Here are some important changes for you concerning Martha Anna CAMPBELL (b.1866) who married John C. SMATHERS (b.1863). Maybe you already know these changes, maybe not.

Martha Anna is the daughter of Elijah CAMPBELL and Sarah HOLBEN. Sarah's grandfather was John HOLBEN b.1782.

Elijah CAMPBELL b.8 Aug 1846 in Ringgold Twp., Jefferson Co., PA; and son of Benjamin Reeder CAMPBELL from Northumberland Co., PA, and Sarah GOSS also from Northumberland Co., PA. Elijah died 22 May 1904.

Elijah married Sarah HOLBEN in 1865, no complete date yet.

Sarah HOLBEN b.5 Feb 1848 in Redbank Twp., Armstrong Co., PA; and dau of Aaron William HOLBEN and Katherine NEESE. Sarah died 7 Jan 1934.

Elijah & Sarah had nine children and all were born in Ringgold Twp., Jefferson county and their names are:
1) Martha A. b.17 Jul 1866 m.John Curtis SMATHERS, 7 children
2) Elizabeth Ida b.21 Jan 1868 m.Abraham Lincoln STEWART, 3 children
3) Harris C. b.18 Nov 1869 d.22 Aug 1879
4) Raymond Otis b.24 May 1872 m.Rachel Jan HOCH, 3 children
5) Emma b.abt 1876 m.Darius Monroe HOWARD, 1 child
6) Mae/May E. b.Feb 1880 m.John W. McCLELLAND, 1 child
7) Charles Clair b.Dec 1882 m.Jennie mae SNYDER, 4 children
8) Harry b.21 May 1886 d.11 Jan 1888
9) Floyd b.May 1889 m.Lula F. JACK, 1 child

There could be more children and more complete dates. These are what I've gathered at this time. I will give you sources when you wish.

The children I have for Martha & John Curtis SMATHERS are:
1) Harry b.7 mar 1884
2) Edna b. Oct 1885
3) John b.June 1887
4) Frank F. b.Apr 1896
5) Lenore b.Apr 1898
6) Florence R. b.calculated 1901
7) Edison b.calculated 1903

I am descended through Elijah's sister, Euphema CAMPBELL who married John GRUBER. Please tell me of your descent. THANKS.

I hope to hear from you again (or anyone else interested in these families).
