TN...Pulaski Co., KY...Owen Co., IN...McDonough Co., IL...Andrew Co., MO

Generation 7:
I am seeking information on EZEKIEL CAMPBELL who was born about 1794 in TN. He married JANE MODRELL on 18 March 1816 in Pulaski Co., KY. Jane was the child of GEORGE MODRELL and NANCY PAGE.

Ezekiel and his wife lived in TN, then returned to KY. By 1830/31 Ezekiel was in Owen Co., IN, then by 1840 to McDonough Co., IL, then to Andrew Co., MO where Ezekiel and Jane died on 19 October 1861 and 29 Jan 1869, respectively. They are buried at High Prairie Cemetery, associated with High Prairie Baptist Church, west of Cosby. Ezekiel's gravestone gives his age as 61 yrs. 9 mo. 22 ds.--likely incorrect based on earlier tax and census records. Ezekiel Campbell and son Andrew H. Campbell are listed as early settlers of Rochester and Monroe Townships of Andrew Co., MO.

-------TIME LINE---------

==1816 [18 Mar] Ezekiel Campbell married Jenny Modrell in Pulaski Co., KY. George Modrell listed as her father. John Modrell was the bondsman.

==1817 Pulaski Co., KY Tax List shows Ezekiel Campbell [21 years old or older]. He does not appear on any other Pulaski Co., KY tax list from 1815-1819.

==1820 Federal Census in Eastern TN states is lost. A different Ezekiel Campbell [age 45+] appears in the 1820 census for Adair Co., KY [p. 12].

==1820-1825 Ezekiel's daughter Hannah Retta Campbell may have been born.

==1821/1824 Ezekiel's son George W. Campbell may have been born.

If this is Ezekiel, his age is registered incorrectly.
==1830 census of Schuyler Co., IL [the section that became McDonough Co.] shows:

2 June 1876 Newspaper Account
Particulars of Mr. A. H. Campbell's Death by Lightning

In last week's REPORTER [29 May 1876] was a brief notice of Mr. Andrew H. Campbell, of Monroe township, being struck by lightning. We have since learned the following particulars:

It seems Mr. Campbell had been to his brother's farm in the northeast part of the country, to get a load of corn, and had started on his return; his little daughter [Martha L. Campbell], aged about 10 years, accompanying him. Not being near any house when overtaken by the storm, Mr. Campbell halted his team, took off his coat, which he gave to the little girl for protection against the rain, and was standing near his team beneath an umbrella at the time of the accident. So heavy was the bolt that descended that Mr. Campbell and the horse standing nearest to him, and the little girl standing at the rear end of the wagon, fell at the same instant. The little girl, however, soon came to her senses and went immediately to her father, turned him over and found that he yet breathed. She started to run to the nearest house, about three-fourths of a mile distant, but thinking the team would not be safe, she returned and placed her hand upon her father's heart and found that it had ceased to beat. By this time the injured horse had regained its feet. The little girl immediately summoned the nearest neighbors and the body of Mr. Campbell was taken to his home. The shock to the unfortunate wife and family at home, occasioned by this sad news, can neither be described nor imagined.

Mr. Campbell was a highly respected member of Castle Grange, No. 722, and the members of that grange turned out en masse and conducted the burial ceremonies in a manner that showed the respect due the deceased. In the death of Mr. Campbell is lost the love of a good husband, the protection of a kind father, and the citizenship of an honored neighbor. The family are left with means for their support, but in their sad affliction they have the sympathy of the entire community.

With special thanks to Co-Researchers of these CAMPBELL families:
