Biography of General Charles Campbell
Indiana County, PA Biographies

"GEN, CHARLES CAMPBELL, of Black Lick township, was of Scotch Irish parentage, and a native of the Conecocheague Valley. He migrated to what was afterward known as Campbell's mills, in this township, about 1772.

The data at our command are so meagre that adequate justice cannot be done to his memory. A scant record exists of his captivity among the Indians and British. The positions of trust and responsibility which he held in the county and on the frontier indicate in some degree the estimation in which he was held by the citizens and State authorities. He died in 1828, at the age of eighty two. For many years he was an elder in Bethel Presbyterian church,

His connection with the militia of the county and district was both honorable and effective. He died as be lived, respected by all who knew him. His first wife was Margaret Clark, and his second was Mrs. Elizabeth Ramsey. The children were: Barbara, Michael, Rebecca, Sarah, Mary, Jane, James, Margaret, Fennwell, Eliza, Charles and Thomas.

"Mrs. Mary (Cummins) Campbell has several tea spoons over one hundred years old, that were used by Gen. Campbell. Matilda, daughter of the late Charles Campbell, has Gen. Campbell's gold watch; this is an unique specimen old mechanism, It is marked 'M. and A. No. 5106."
