"Kingston House" - Kingston Presbyterian Church?
Posted by: Pat Armstrong (ID *****5282) Date: April 17, 2006 at 08:11:39

This post is about letters written circa 1920 from the town of Kingston in Decatur County. The hand-written heading on these letters is “Kingston House.” Does anyone familiar with Kingston know of a house by this name?

The letters are from the family of Homer Campbell and were written by his wife who signed the letters “Johnson.” The Campbells may have been connected to Kingston Presbyterian Church, and one possibility is that “Kingston House” was the church’s parsonage.

I am still researching Homer and Johnson Campbell to find out what happened to them. I know that Homer’s mother, Emily Frances Armstrong Campbell, died on October 15, 1917, and one letter suggests that she died in Kingston. Any information about this family would be greatly appreciated.
