  • Notes 
    • Kendall County Birth Register Book 1, Record 465, lists George's birth date as 12 Oct 1879.

      The 1880 Illinois census lists George's father as "Camble, Mathew," a 39 year old farmer born in Scotland to Scottish parents, living with his mother "Elisabeth," and brother William, 2. Also in the household are two farm hands, James McMurtire, 24, from Scotland and Lewis Henson, 56, from Denmark. 1880 U.S. Census, Kendall, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 9, Roll 219, stamped p. 329)(the census indexer misread his father's surname so they are indexed as "Camhle"). See, also: Elmer G. Dickson, 1880 Census of Kendall County, IL, p. 119 (published by E.G.Dickson, Chico, CA)(1994).

      The authors N. Bateman & P. Selby, HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILLINOIS AND HISTORY OF KENDALL COUNTY, p. 960 (1914), state:
      "*** The second child in order of birth of Matthew and Elizabeth (Hastings) Campbell, is George H. Campbell, who was born October 12, 1879. He is unmarried and is a successful farmer in Kendall County, and is one of the progressive and leading young men of this locality. His education was received in the public schools of the county and the Yorkville High School. Fraternally he belongs to Yorkville Lodge No. 371, A. F. & A. M."

      The 1910 Illinois census shows George H. Campbell, then 30 years old and single, living with his mother Elizabeth Campbell and sister Ellen R. 1910 U.S.Census, Kendall Twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 624, Roll 295, ED 65, stamped p. 233-B).

      In an Email to Wm.C.Snouffer (25 Oct 2002), Elmer G. Dickson wrote: "In the 1922 Atlas of Kendall County, I found that the Campbell brothers owned property in section three and William and George Campbell each owned property in section eleven Kendall Township."

      The Social Security Death Index records that George Campbell (SSN 344-38-9149; issued in Illinois) was born 12 Oct 1879 and died in Mar 1967 while residing in Aurora, Kane Cnty, IL.
