Ruthy Campbell came to Texas in 1829. Campbell's Creek in Robertson County is on her original Land Grant. I THINK she came to Texas with three sons and two daughters. She died in 1837-38. I have found several family stories about Ruthy, but no documents other than her land grants.
Nathaniel was her son, and is mentioned in many of the histories of the area. He received a Spanish Land Grant in 1835 and he is on the Texas Revolution Muster Rolls twice in 1836. He married Millie Coley Jan 28, 1847. I believe at least two of his sons were still in Robertson County as late as the 1880 census. Nathan died Aug 10, 1870, I believe in Robertson C.
Squire Campbell was Nathan's younger brother and died in his early twenties in 1845. He also received a land grant and is listed on the muster rolls.
I would really like to find out more about Ruthy. According to family legend she was mentioned in early Texas History books for a role she played either in the Revolution or with the Indians. Any information would be appreciated.
I have information on Nathaniel's descendants through two of his daughters, Mary Jane, and my GGrandmother Eliza. I'd like to share information with any other descendants of Nathan, or his siblings.
Thanks for reading this LONG note.
