Notes for Margaret Campbell:

Captain Campbell's wife, Margaret Campbell, was a most intelligent, mild and placid woman, always thoughtful and calm, and prepared for every emergency. So conspicuous were these traits in her character that, when any difficulty occurred or alarm was given, she was immediately looked to and consulted, not only by the women of the station and neighborhood, but the men relied upon her judgment about everything connected with their frontier life. She was a most suitable, congenial companion for her patriotic, courageous soldier husband.

Notes for Col. David Campbell:

They moved from Washington County, Virginia, in 1786, to Tennessee, twelve miles from Knoxville, where Captain Campbell first erected a block-house, and afterwards a station, which was called Campbell's Station. This name was retained for one hundred and ten years, then changed by those who have no respect for historical names or places, the postoffice given up, and the name given to another place in Middle Tennessee, near Nashville.
