I have a Simon Campbell that came to Raymore in 1870, and his father and siblings came later about 1883, also settling in Raymore.
Simon Campbell's bio below indicated he was planning to open a motel in Raymore about 1883. Does anyone know if he did open a motel there? If not can anyone tell me how to find out if he did--
Simons father was John Campbell and he died in Jan 1899 in Raymore. I have quite a bit of info on the Campbell family if anyone has any ?

He contemplates building a hotel this season, which is an institution much needed at this point, and which he is competent to manage, this will be run in connection with his livery business.
