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

JOHN3 CAMPBELL, (John2, Duncan1)
John Campbell, born 1656 in Ireland; died, Feb 20th, 1734 in Derry, PA; buried in the old Derry churchyard.

John Campbell is said to have come from Ireland in 1726 with several grown sons (see children below). He settled in Lancaster Co., Pa. where he lived until his death. (Egle.)

In the "Virginia Historical Magazine," Vol. 7, p. 126, it is stated that John Campbell came from Ireland to America in 1726 with five or six grown sons, settled first in Lancaster Co., Pa., and came in 1738 to that part of Orange Co., Va., which is now Augusta Co., with his sons Patrick, Robert and David.

One would infer that this John must be idential with Mr. Egle's John. It is unlikely that two John Campbells with several grown sons bearing the same names would have come to America in the same year. Patrick, Robert and David, sons of Mr. Egle's John, did move to Virginia, but the father John, buried in Pennsylvania in 1734 certainly did not.

1. Robert4, lived in Virginia and had five children.
2. David4, moved to Orange Co., Va., in 1741; married Margaret Hamilton.
3. James4, born 1689* in Ireland.
4. Patrick4, born 1690, in Ireland,moved to Orange Co., Va., about 1740.
5. John4, born 1692, in Ireland; died 1764 at York, PA. An Episcopal Clergyman.

Note: *James born in 1691 since burial record indicates he was 80 years old when he died in 1771.
