Information on John Campbell
From "Genealogy of The Descendants of John Walker", by Emma Siggins White:
John Campbell, the Duke of Argyle, is said to be buried between the towns of Fleming and Maysville, Kentucky. He was banished from Scotland at the time of the Presbyterian persecutions; he, being the eldest son, was heir of the Duke, his father. Parliment, some time in the fifties - 1850-62, passed a special act laying aside certain monies for the benefit of the heirs of John Walker Campbell, rightful Duke of Argyle (Martha Orchid Malott, of Bloomington, Indiana, furnished this information regarding the Campbell family). Of the 9 children of John and Elizabeth Campbell, 3 came to America and settled in Pennsylvania, going from there to Virginia, and settling near Staunton, probably about 1744.
