Jane McFarlane (Campbell)'s Timeline

February 6, 1775

TITLE: The families of Joshua Williams of Chester County, Pa. and John McKeehan of Cumberland County, Pa. : with some allied families
AUTHOR: Douglas, Bessie P.
PUBLISHER: Augsburg Press, Minneapolis, Minn, 1928, 516 pgs
Page 267 begins the Campbell family.

The main part of the following record (Campbell family) is taken from Engle's Pennsylvania Genealogies and County Histories.

PATRICK5 CAMPBELL (James4, John3, John2, Duncan1).
Patrick Campbell Married: Feb. 6th, 1755, Eleanor Hays, daughter of Patrick and Jean Hays. The marriage service was performed by Rev. John Roan. (See records of Paxtang Presbyterian Church, History of the Sesqui-Centennial of Paxtang Church, by Mathias W. McAlarney, p. 269.)

That Patrick and Eleanor (Hays) Campbell were the grandparents of Eleanor Campbell who married Rev. Joshua Williams is matter of absolute family knowledge.

As stated elsewhere there was a schism in the Presbyterian church following the preaching of the celebrated Whitefield in this country. In 1754 a definite split occurred in the Paxtang and Derry congregations, Rev. John Elder remaining at the head of the "Old Side" Presbyterians, Rev. John Roan becoming head of the "New Side" faction. That Patrick Campbell went with the "New Side" church, we may infer from Rev. Roan's officiating at his marriage, 1755.

Egle's Notes and Queries, Vol.3, p. 34, from a letter by one Darby: "you must remember ... the marriage of your aunt Nancy, Mrs. Carson, with Patrick Campbell, which took place in the Fall of 1780" and on p. 272: "The Patrick Campbell mentioned by Darby in his letter was not the constable of Donegal, but belonged to another family in Dauphin County who were large landholders." If this refers to our Patrick, it was a second marriage contracted late in life.

A Patrick Campbell is enrolled as private in Captain James Watson's Caompny of Col. Thomas Porter's battalion of Lancaster Co., Aug. 13th, 1776.

Children: James6, born 1756
Jane6, married, 1st...Stockton, 2nd...McFarlane, and probably others.
