  • Notes 
    • It appears that Janette and her husband James departed Scotland from Glasgow in 1869 and arrived In New York City on 3 May 1869 aboard the ship Columbia. The ship's manifest listed James as a 26 year old weaver, and listed "Janet" as 24 years old. They had no children with them. Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York, New York, 1820-1897 (National Archives Microfilm Pub. M 237, Roll 309, List # 431, lines 31 & 32; Records of the U.S. Customs Service, Record Group 36; The National Archives, Washington, D.C.) [www.Ancestry.com data accessed July 2007].

      The 1880 census shows Janette, 36 years old and born in Scotland, living with her husband "Camble, James," a 38 year old farmer, and their children, James [Jr.],10, Margaret, 7, Mary, 6, and Emma, 1. 1880 U.S. Census, Kendall Twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 9, Roll 219, stamped p. 337). See also, Elmer G. Dickson, 1880 Census of Kendall County, IL, p. 139 (published by E.G.Dickson, Chico, CA: 1994).

      The 1900 census lists "Campbell, James" as a 58-yr old farmer, born in Feb [sic], 1842, in Scotland, with parents born in Scotland, married for 32 years to his wife Janette, 55, born May 1845 in Scotland, as were her parents. The census records that the couple had 6 children, 4 of whom were living. Daughter "Annie J", 21, born Dec. 1878 in Illinois, was the only child living with them at the time of the census. The census also records that the couple came to America in 1868 [sic] and that James was a naturalized citizen. 1900 U.S. Census, Naausay Twp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 623, Roll 313, stamped p. 98).

      At the time of this 1900 census James and Janette Campbell were living 5 dwellings (probably farms) away from the family of Frank and Elizabeth McMicken, whose son Robert would, in 1923, become the husband of their granddaughter Olive Ferguson.
    • According to Wheatland Cemetery records, James and his wife "Janet" are buried in Lot 19, sotuh 1/2.
