Alexander, Sr., Lettice, Letty, Caty, Ellick & Samuel Campbell

I am seeking information on the descendants of Alexander & Lettice (Letty) Campbell. Their Children: Catherine, Alexander, Ellick (?) and Letty (?).. Grandson named Samuel Campbell.

They lived in Shenandoah County, but I wonder about a connection to Frederick and Rockbridge Counties.

Their daughter, Catherine (Caty) married Richard Botkin (Bodkin) on 22 Jan 1793. Richard's sister, Jane Bodkin, married an Alexander Campbell on 28 July 1795. Marriages in Shenandoah County.

Richard & Caty Botkin moved to Kentucky for a few years and then settled in Hamilton County, Ohio. By the ages of their children probably moved to Ohio between 1801 - 1809.

Here are Shenandoah notes on the family.

1. Will of Alexander Campbell - Shenandoah County, Virginia Will Book B. Page 205. Wife Lettice Campbell; Sons: Alexander & Ellick; Daughters: Letty and Catherine; Grandson: Samuel.

1a. Will dated 27 Dec 1783. In probate 26 Jan 1786. Inventory 23 Feb 1786.

2. Shenandoah County, Virginia Minute Book 1791 - 1796. Records of Indentures and Guardianships.
September 8, 1795. Samuel Campbell, a devisee of Alexander Campbell, deceased choose Richard Bodkin as guardian.

4. "A History of Shenandoah County, Virginia" by John W. Wayland, 1980. Includes: "Heads of Families in 1785. - List of Samuel Porter. List # 10. Page 228. " Samuel Porter Covered a section that probably extended from the North Mountain to the Massanutten, including Mt. Olive, Tom's Brook, and the adjacent portion of the river."

Alexander Campbell is listed with 5 people, 1 dwelling, and 3 out-buildings.

5. In the 1783 Tax list for Shenandoah County, Alexander is Assessed for 1 white tithe (Age 21), 3 horses and 6 cows. 10 shillings, 2s, 3d = 17 s, 6p. Catherine would be abt age 14 in 1783.
