Thursday, September 26, 1883
Last Saturday morning, Sept. 15, Joseph A. Campbell, after a long and painful sickness, passed away to his final rest.
About nine years ago the palsy came upon him, and, although many physicians were consulted, no cure was found, and he grew worse and worse. Two years ago last July he was obliged to take his bed, and he was never able to leave the house afterward. He suffered intensely until shortly before his death when he fell asleep and passed quietly away.
His family were untiring and faithful in their attentions upon him, always ready to do their utmost to make him comfortable and lighten his sufferings. No wife and children could be more to a sick husband and father than this good household was to Mr. Campbell.
He was born in Cherryfield, Maine, March 4th 1820, and was therefore 63 years of age. He was engaged in lumbering in his native state, and when, in 1850, he moved to Wisconsin, he followed the same business. He came to Omro twenty-two years ago, since which time he has been one of our most worthy citizens. He was a quiet man of good sense and upright character, always on the right side of every leading question. He leaves a family of five sons and one daughter. Mr. Babcock conducted the funeral services at the house on Sunday afternoon.
