Campbell family

In 1856 Edwin Owen Campbell his wife Mary Jane and four Campbell children moved from Sampson County, North Carolina to Angelina County, Texas. Two more Campbell children were born in Angelina County. In 1865 at the end of the Civil War Edwin Owed died and his oldest son, John Melvin Campbell moved to Freestone County and became a drover. Mary Jane Campbell died in 1872 and the other children moved to Freestone County with their older brother where the men became drovers also and two women married drovers. At the end of the great cattle drives the two younger men settled, one in Butler, Freestone County, and one in Leon County, Texas. Some of the decedents are still in Leon County. I am looking for anyone researching this family to exchange information with.
