    • They Came to Mara‚Ķ Pioneers of Mara Township, circa 1829-1900, p. 126 (c. 1993), provides:
      "Natives of Islay, Argyleshire [sic], Scotland, [Mary's in-laws] John Campbell and his wife, Margaret, ... were living in South Mara by 1852. ***

      Obituary, The Orilla [Ontario, Canada] Times (12 Aug 1920)(reprinted in They Came to Mara...., supra, p. 129):
      "On Sunday morning, August 1, another of our esteemed ladies passed away in the person of Mrs. Alex Campbell. She had been ill but a few days. She was 83 years of age, when young she came from Scotland to this community and has resided here ever since. Her husband predeceased her many years ago. Mrs. Campbell was much beloved for her many noble qualities of heart and mind and her fine Christian character and kindly spirit. She leaves behind to mourn her loss two daughters, Mrs. P. McDougall, Mrs. Duncan McCuaig and seven sons. The funeral took place on Wednesday [4 Aug] and was largely attended. Service was conducted at the house ... and interment took place at Knox church cemetery[,] Gamebridge. The bereaved ones have the sympathy of a large circle of friends."
