47. Judge David5 Campbell (David 'White David'4, John3, John2, [Unknown]1) was born 26 May 1750 in Augusta Co., VA, and died 21 Nov 1812 in TN. He married Elizabeth Outlaw 1779 in VA, daughter of Alexander Outlaw and Penelope Smith. She was born 1767, and died 1821.

Notes for Judge David Campbell:

He practiced law for awhile in Washington County, Virginia, and then removed to that part of the country which is now Tennessee. He married before leaving Virginia, Elizabeth Outlaw. He was the first Federal Judge of the Territory in which he lived, and was a leading spirit in the organization of the State government, also assisted in framing the Constitution of Tennessee. He was one of the two first Supreme Judges of the State after its admission to the Union, and held this office for many years. See Ramsey's "Annals of Tennessee," and "Kings Mountain and Its Heroes," by Draper. In 1776 he joined the Continental Army, rose to the office of Major in General Nathaniel Green's Division, served for several years. After having served on the Supreme Bench of Tennessee, he was appointed Federal Judge of the Territory which is now the State of Alabama. He lived only a short time after this appointment. In 1812, aged sixty-two years, his death occurred, before he had removed his family to the Territory.
