Notes from DeliJim
One Source claims that the parents of John Campbell are Alexander Campbell and Anne Whitfield.
John Campbell married Grisel or Grace Hay, daughter of Patrick Hay in 1695. The family moved from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Fincastle County, Virginia abt. 1730. John and Grace reportedly had nine children: Patrick the eldest, born in 1696, maried Delilah Thompson. David the youngest, born 8 March, 1706, called "white" David to distinguish him from his darker cousin "black" David, married 16 January 1735, Mary Hamilton (1716-1801).
John Campbell came from Ireland to America in 1726, with five sons and several daughters, and settled first in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Eix or eight years afterwards, he removed to that part of Orange County, Virginia, which, in 1738, became Augusta County, where many of his numerous descendants lived for many years.
Three of John Campbell's sons came with him to Augusta, Partick, Robert and David.
