    • She is mentioned in "Commemorative biographical record of the County of Kent, Ontario, containing biographical sketches of prominent citizens" published by J. H. Beers & Co., Toronto, 1904, pp. 609-10:


      Malcolm Campbell

      Malcolm Campbell grew up in his home, and, after he completed his education in the Ridgetown schools, followed farming.  In March, 1874, he married Miss Sarah [Ann] Campbell, [1843-1907] the estimable daughter of John and Christine (McFarland) Campbell, both  of whom were born in Argylshire [sic], Scotland.  They emigrated to Canada in 1841, and settled in County Middlesex, where Mrs. Campbell was born in 1845, and where she was reared and educated.  There her parents both died, her father having long been a very prominent teacher in Middlesex and Kent; he was a scholarly man, who had been well educated at Glasgow, Scotland.  His daughter was given every advantage, and also became a teacher, following the profession for some eleven years in Counties Middlesex and Kent.  After marriage Mr. Campbell and wife settled on the old homestead, where they still reside, and during the intervening years many improvements have testified to the excellence of Mr. Campbell's agricultural methods, as well as to the prosperity which has attended him. The home of the Campbells is one of the most comfortable, as well as attractive in this locality.   A family of five children has blessed this marriage, their names being:

      Flora [May] CAMPBELL, who was born in the present home [c1875], was educated in the Ridgetown schools, and for five  years has been one of the successful, efficient and popular teachers of the county;

      [John Lorne] Louis [CAMPBELL], who was educated in the schools, taught school for two years, and then graduated from the Toronto Medical College, and is practicing physician;

      [Mary Christena] Mamie [CAMPBELL], who was born in the present home, is a graduate of the Collegiate Institute of Ridgetown, and is a popular teacher in Howard [Township];

      Pearl [CAMPBELL] was also educated in Ridgetown  Institute; and

      Neil [Roy CAMPELL], like his sisters, received the excellent educational advantages offered in the Ridgetown Institute.

      This family is one of the intellectual and highly cultured ones of the county, and takes a leading position socially.  In politics Mr. Campbell, as his father and grandfather, has always affiliated with the Reform party, has been a member of the County council, and also a member of the council in Howard [Township], for a number of years being chairman of the former body.  Both he and wife are leading members of the Baptist Church of Ridgetown, generally known as the Disciples Church.  It is meet on closing this very incomplete sketch of this representative of one of the most prominent families of County Kent, to recall their early location here, their  honorable perpetuation of the name, and their prominence in several communities as  founders of educational enterprises and promoters of Christian activities.  The Campbells wherever located are known as intelligent, honest, industrious and ambitious men and women.  Malcolm Campbell inherits the attributes which have reflected credit in all times upon this family name.  The esteem in which he is held in his community is only equaled by the respect and affection with which he is regarded in the family circle.
