  • Notes 
    • Emily Campbell Price notes:

      "The following information was sent many years ago by Douglas Campbell of Blenheim, grandson of both Peter and Malcolm to George Campbell, son of Peter and grandson of Malcolm:"

      "Two brothers, Malcolm and Peter Campbell of Inverary, Argleshire, emigrated to New York State in 1821, being eight weeks on the ocean, with their wives and families; they landed at Quebec; thence by boat to a port opposite Utica; thence by oxcart or wagon to the hills near Utica.  Malcolm Campbell purchased in 1822 a farm in Herkimer County, New York State, known as the Walsh Tract in the 3rd Allotment in the town of Russia of 100 acres for $850.00.  This property he held for eight years till 1830 when he sold to one William Forest for the sum of $784.00.  He then emigrated to Kent County, Ontario, Canada, where he purchased a farm of 200 acres, described as lot 4 on the 12th Concession, Township of Howard."

      "Peter Campbell settled on the Moon Farm in Herkimer County in the Town of Russia in 1822; thence after 8 years they sold the farm and went to Ontario, Canada and purchased 200 acres, described as Lot 17, in the 7th Concession in the Township of Harwich in the County of Kent."

      Emily Campbell Price notes from p 17:

      "Malcolm emigrated to New York State with his wife and family in 1821 and came from there to Canada in 1830. Peter and his wife emigrated to the States at the same time Malcolm did and are also said to have come from there to Canada in 1830."
