About Tamberlin Campbell

Information on Tamberlin and Hester's family: http://www.nbgs.ca/firstfamilies/FAMILY-C-2006.pdf#page=39

Information on Tamberlin and Hester: http://www.upperstjohn.com/hale/dickinso/d2908.htm - Here we find the correct spelling of his name "While the name appears variously as Tamberlane, Tamberlain, etc., it was invariably signed 'Tamberlin.'"

Some more details on Tamberlin can be found in this work about his son-in-law Mr. Sharp: http://fort-havoc.com/html/Adney.htm

The book "Rhode Island in the Colonial Wars: A List of Rhode Island Soldiers & Sailors in the Old French & Indian War, 1755-1762" says this of his military record in that colony: "Tamberlin Served in Capt. J. Whiting's Co. in 1757, Ensign of Capt. J. Whiting's Co. in 1758, 2nd Lieutenant of Capt. Hargill's Co. in 1759, and appointed Ensign of Capt. Peck's Co. in 1760, but did not serve." http://www.archive.org/stream/rhodeislandincol00inchap/rhodeislandincol00inchap_djvu.txt

More detailed info on two of those regiments: In March 1758, Tamberlin was made Second Lieutenant in the fourth company of a 1000-man regiment raised by the Governor of Rhode Island for the French and Indian War / Seven Years War. http://books.google.ca/books?id=MsshnZ-FUssC&pg=PA211#v=onepage&q&f=false

In 1760, another regiment was raised in which Tamberlin was appointed an Ensign. http://books.google.ca/books?id=HV0aAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA241#v=onepage&q&f=false

Tamberlin died sometime between the updating of his will on Jan. 14, 1819 and the execution of his will on February 8, 1821 - likely closer to the latter.
