Will dated 28th December, 1794, and devised one slave to George Campbell, son of James Campbell, after decease of Jacob's wife, Jane, who was grandmother to George; and to Jacob Campbell, son of said James, another slave; and to James Campbell, son of said James, another slave; and to Robert Campbell, son of said James, another slave. Jacob's daughter married orator between 1773 and 1777, and died in 1793 (January). James Campbell had moved Irvin from Augusta. Jacob had another son-in-law named Kennedy. James Campbell answers, says he is Jacob's son-in-law.

Irvin lived with Jacob about six months, when he went to Tennessee, where he lived some years, and his wife died. Jacob and Jane moved from Augusta in 1779, to Washington, and they have always lived on the same land. James Campbell, executor of Jacob, was Jacob's son-in-law . Jane and Jacob when they moved from Augusta were about 65 years old. Robert Ferril, Jr., deposes 1st January, 1806, at house of Robert Ferril, Sr., in Cumberland County, Kentucky.
