3 – The Fitch Gazetteer: Misc Campbell Genealogies

The following genealogies and notes were taken from my screen shots “The Fitch Gazetteer” unless specifically noted otherwise. My method was basically reading pages out of context and trying to fit the information together in family groups.  That said, If you doubt my work here, read my transcriptions of the screen shots here, then try to back up any connection you find with other references. Better yet, get a copy of the book. You can read how I came on this information here: 1 – The Fitch Gazetteer.

Duncan Campbell AKA “White Dunk”

Ann Balenabe, b Scotland, m. Duncan Campbell AKA “white Dunk” and AKA “old Duncan” She d. 10 Aug 1777 in Burgoyne’s camp at Ft Edwards of dysentery, Tombstone later erected by son James.  She died age 74 (b. 1703). Buried near Granddaughter. Ann and her Granddaughter d. of dysentery while at Burgoyne’s Camp where they fled for protection after the Allen family massacres.

  • My Note: This family was detailed in the sketch 15 – Ann Campbell of Belenabe. Dr Norton (orator) refers to her as Ann Balanabe where as other references call her Ann Lenox. Balenabe is referenced on her grave stone “of the family of Balenabe”. I suppose that could be understood as her maiden name or her place of origin. Dr Norton may have had better knowledge of her.
  • My Note: I have seen Duncan named as one of the sons of Lachlin Campbell – here is an example but others have pick up on this.  I suppose it’s possible but I find it HIGHLY unusual – if not improbable – that one of the residents and or descendants interviewed in the 1850’s time frame, for this manuscript, would not have mentioned such an enormous detail. Much information was known about this Duncan and not one bit of information given suggests that his father was Lachlin Campbell.

Duncan Campbell – AKA “old Duncan” also AKA “white Dunk”. Lot 49 of Scots (Argyle) Patent. Resided at Dwelly hill.

  • My Note: Dwelly Hill was the name given to the site of the Alphonso Dwelly farm in 1849. This location is referred to often in Dr Fitch’s notes. Don’t let it cause confusion. They were describing the location of a current neighbor in 1849 – Dwelly Hill was not the name of the farm in the 1700’s.

Duncan was a stanch Loyalist

Belonged to Assoc Ref Church, Salem

Children of White Dunk and Ann (My Note: Read my above linked sketch as it’s entirely possible Ann had children with a prior husband – John Campbell):

1)   John Campbell left will in Jamaica ref Cousin Alexander and Duncan in Jamaica. (My Note: Is a natural child to Ann but not sure if Duncan was his father or step father)

In the name of God, Amen. I, John Campbell, late of the Island of Jamaica, but at present of New York, being very sick. My debt of £400 to Mr. Goldsbrow Banyer, and all other debts, to be paid. I leave to my sister, Margaret Campbell, £1,000; To my three brothers, Archibald, Alexander, and James, I leave £500 each; To my sister, Catharine McArthur, £200; To my sister, Ann Campbell, £200 when married, provided she marries with the approbation of my executors. I leave to my mother, Ann Campbell, £200; To my cousin, Duncan Campbell, of Kingston, Jamaica, merchant, £200. I leave to my three brothers, Archibald, Alexander, and James, the lands I lately purchased of Goldsbrow Banyer * in the Province of New York, viz., To Archibald, Lot No. 30; To Alexander, Lot No. 38; To James, Lot No. 36. All the rest I leave to my cousin, Alexander Campbell, of Kingston, Jamaica. I make Dr. Peter Middleton, of New York, Johnston Fairhaghne, of Jamaica, and Walter Buchanan, of New York, merchant, executors, and each is to have 20 Pistoles, besides expenses and a reasonable commission. ” The 20 Pistoles being intended to buy each of them a suit of mourning.”

2)   Margaret Campbell.  Probably died 17 Oct 1784.  My Note: I believe this is her administration

  • Campbell, Duncan of Washington Co farmer letters of administration granted by Thomas Tredwell Judge of the Probate Court at New York to on the estate of his dec’d daughter Margaret of the same place spinster Recorded p 130

3)   Catherine Campbell m. Duncan McArthur. Her brother Alexander came to check on this family’s safety after the Allen massacre: “Alexander Campbell who is in Burgoyne’s Army, ascertained the identity of the Allen scalps, and came to check on the McArthur’s safety bringing them their first news of the murders; the McArthur’s then went to their grandfather Campbell’s who resided on the Dwelly place; the day before the murders”

4)   Ann Campbell m. Archibald s/o Widow Campbell/McNeil.  He d. in Fort Edward and Wife died in Canada.  Another note says: Nancy m. another Campbell related to Wid Sarah McNeil (Jane McCrea).

  • My Note: Probably Ann = Nancy. Also, you will occasionally see in various sources that the family of Sarah McNeil (of Jane McCrea fame – AKA Sarah Gordon Campbell McNeil) and this family as being related back in Scotland. My thought is while possibly true, Sarah did marry a Campbell but this marriage could also be the explanation.

5)   Alexander Campbell

  • Rode with Neil Gillespie to his Brother in Law’s Duncan McArthur to check on their safety after Allen Family Massacre.  They all went to their father’s house Duncan Campbell who lived on the Dwelly place, then after 2-3 days went to Fort Edwards.
  • He lived opposite his Brother James on Battenkill, Jackson, NY.
  • The Jackson party camped on his land in Aug 1777
  • He was indicted with 4 others 5 Nov 1782  for adhering to “the enemies of this state” on deposition of Thomas Collins
  • His lot sold (?) by Sheriff 16 Mar 1815, bounded N by Archibald Campbell
  • Alexander Campbell moved to Canada, not far from Lisbon, NY

6)   James Campbell a loyalist was also commissioned as a Col. in Burgoynes army and went to Canada, not far from Lisbon, NY. He m. Elizabeth Clark d/o Dr Clark minister, sister of Judge Ebinezer Clark and Benj Clark who went to SC with his father. Interrogates James Rogers after Rogers had been captured at Skenesborough, Whitehall, NY

7)   Archibald Campbell m. Flora McNeil (McNeal) dau of Archibald (old Archy) McNeal and Granddaughter of William McNeal. He d. 31 Jan 1808 at 69 (b. 1739 or 1738). Flora d. 1 Nov 1825 at 74.

Archibald and John McNeil had their bread baked at Duncan’s house while clearing logs for their own land and constructing their log houses.

Remained neutral during the Rev War.

His family was with the McNachten party that went into Burgoyne’s Camp following the Allen Family Massacre.

Norman Morrison resided in his home following the Revolutionary War

Had 6 Children. The Bible of Elizabeth Eady Campbell (1793-1860) had sheets sewn in listing names of brothers and sisters of her husband (Duncan Campbell Jr. below).

  • Caty b. 4 Jun 1772 m. Jacob Heustis. From: “Death Notices from Washington County, New York, Newspapers, 1790-1880” by Mary Smith Jackson, Edward F Jackson. Heustis, Catherine in her 73rd yr, Widow of Jacob and dau of late Archibald Campbell of Cambridge, NY in Chesterfield, NY May 9, 1844

  • Nelly (AKA Eleanor) b. 11 Jun 1783 m. John Crary Esq of Salem on 5 Apr 1804. Hon John Crary esq lived in Salem, NY and  d. 10 Apr 1872 at age 90. Was married at Cambridge NY by the Rev Alexander Proudfit. Nelly’s dau, Esther Ann m. Gen John McNaughton c 1806 who was on practice with Hon John Sacage.
  • Duncan b. 26 Sep 1785 married Betsy Eddie, Settled in Wyoming Co, PA had 9 children and died there. It is from Eddie’s/Eady Campbell’s Bible that we learn the names of Duncan and his siblings (the children of Archibald Campbell and Flora McNeil).
  • Archibald b. 11 Nov 1790 and died 8 June 1862 in Centre Falls, NY. He m. Sallie Fuller. Source of Archibald’s Death: “Death Notices from Washington County, New York, Newspapers, 1790-1880” by Mary Smith Jackson, Edward F Jackson. Mentions Archibald was 72y.  Adam Cotterell raised Archy the son of Archibald Campbell of Centre Falls, NY (History of the Town of Greenwich says Widow of Archi lived in Centre Falls)
  • Ann died at Fort Edwards the day after her Grandma Ann (Belenabe) Campbell and is buried next to her. From her stone: “Ann Campbell daughter of Mr. Archibald Campbell and Mrs. Florence Campbell who died August the 11th, 1777 in the 4th year of her age” (My Note: I believe I read something that referred to her as Nancy but her stone says Ann). Ann and her Grandmother d. while at Burgoyne’s Camp where they fled for protection after the Allen family massacres.

Duncan Campbell AKA Black Dunk?

Duncan Campbell b. Craignish?, Argyleshire, Scotland. Married Mary Chambers, single woman, a member of Dr Clark’s colony from Ireland.  She d. of jaundice in 1777 at Ft Edward NY. He married 2nd Widow Morrison, d. 3 Apr 1812 and buried in Alex MacNachten burial ground – unmarked.

  • My Note: I found a Genforum Query (#14265): I have a Duncan Campbell in my tree from Craignish, but earlier. He was born about 1740, but this is only a guess. He settled in Argyle, Washington Co, NY. There he married Mary Chambers, and left many descendants. He told his children a very odd story about visiting relatives in Ireland at about the age of fourteen. While there, he boarded a ship to see off friends, and was accidentally taken out to sea. He landed in Maryland and became an apprentice for several years, then went to NY. I have to wonder if this was a tall tale.

AKA “ ‘black Dunk’ as he was called” resided next after Roger Read (Reid) at Fitch’s Point, Salem NY “just over the hill below Widow McDougall” at the head of the flat”.

Mentions a son William.

At his request he was buried next to Archibald Campbell “on the place now (1847) owned by ‘emperor’ Alexander” My Note: more from Fitch – Robert Alexander was called “Emperor”. He owned the original homestead of Archibald Campbell in 1847 – (My Note: Not entirely sure which Archibald this was!)

At age 4 or 5 emigrated to Pennsylvania and later the NY Highlands

Military service described.

His second wife was the mother of Norman Morrison who stayed at Archibald Campbell’s house shortly after the revolution (See s/o White Dunk above).  Norman worked at the house of Sarah Gorden Frazier Campbell the day she was taken by Indians. Father of Norman Morrison was Malcom Morrison. Norman was abt 20 yrs old at time of Allen Massacre.

Referred to as Duncan Campbell of Battenkill

Described as owning Lot 36, and drawing lot 88. My Note: On a list showing original ownership of lots, Duncan Campbell Sr (White Dunk and hub to Ann) is listed as owning lot 36 in Greenwich (450 acres), Lot 88 is listed as Duncan Campbell (300 acres).

His family remained at Ft Edwards the month following the Allen Massacres and quartered at the same house as Gen’s Frazer and Reidsel (My Note: Possibly/probably Sarah Gordon Frasier Campbell McNeil’s House).

Had Children:

  • Jane m. David Logan abt 1790, removed to Alburgh, VT or Canada;
  • William m. dau of Roger Read. b. abt 1769.  In 1847, William narrates his family origins back to Dr Fitch and describes the flight of various local families to Ft Edward Aug 1777 following the Allen Massacre. His job to watch over the cattle while at Fort Edward.  There is an account of an encounter with an Indian.
  • Catherine who lived in Annsville NY;
  • Nancy (twin) m. Amasa Carter,
  • Mary (Polly) (twin) m. George Heist;
  • John d 1844, Annsville NY by the falling of a tree limb.

My Note: It seems to me Black Dunk is somehow connected to the family of White Dunk and/or more likely Sarah Gordon Frasier Campbell McNeil. I can’t find a connection even though these families seemed close/allied.

Capt Campbell: 

  • Commanded a company in Col. Montgomery’s Highland Regiment and was supposed to be an Uncle of William Campbell. (My Note: There was a Captain John Campbell who died in the same battle as Maj Duncan Campbell of Inverawe “Black Watch” in 1758. If correct, we have 2 Capt. Campbells – See below)
  • Drew 3000 acre lot of military lands that incl Bishop’s corner and Middle Granville, NY. Obtained 1000 more as a standard allotment for his rank. (My Note: This may be Capt John Campbell? Source: “HISTORY OF THE CAMPBELL FAMILY”  BY Henry Lee, page 80:  “3,000 acres of land in Washington County to Captain John Campbell in 1764”)

William Campbell

Born in Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Originally came here during the French and Indian war as part of a Highland Regmt. Commanded by ____ Montgomery. Was supposed to be a nephew of Capt. Campbell of Montgomery’s Highland Regiment

He later resided on Widow McDougall’s place in Jackson NY.

He enlisted at age 21, his company commanded by Capt. Campbell, thought to be his Uncle and served 9 years in America and discharged in Nova Scotia where he m 1st Catherine Kennedy

Catherine Kennedy was b. Argyleshire, Scotland widow of ____ Thompson; She had several children by a prior marriage incl 2 sons who remained in Brockville, Canada.

Catherine Kennedy and William Campbell went to NYC then settled in N J (My Note: Probably an abbr for something other than New Jersey as she is said to be buried in WA Co, NY).  Says lived on Dwelly place on corner of Duncan Campbell’s lot.

Catharine Kennedy is buried in McNachten burial ground.

Dau of William Campbell and Catherine Kennedy was Eunice Campbell. She was b. 9 Mar 1762 in Nova Scotia and M. 16 Nov 1776 Alexander Reid. He was b. 17 Jan 1752. were m. by Rev. Dr. Clark and had 11 children listed.

William was eligible for a grant in VT, he would not settle it, as it was “so entirely out of the world there”;

Settled the Dwelly place, a corner of Duncan Campbell’s lot, Argyll patent;

Gives an account of an incident during Revolutionary War

William married 2nd Catherine dau of Rodger A Reid and

  • Had son Rodger.
  • MY NOTE:  See Black Dunk above.  His son William m a dau of Rodger Reid.  It seems improbable that this William is Black Dunks son so either I have the notes wrong, coincidence, or confusion in Dr. Fitch’s notes…. Or This William is Black Dunk’s son! If He is the s/o Black Dunk the Capt Campbell (above) would be Black Dunk’s brother. I have no idea who Capt Campbell is other than what’s listed.

Catherine Campbell

William Reid Esq married Catherine Campbell in Scotland. She was b. in Broadalbin Scotland and she died 14 Sep 1793 at 55 (b. 1738).  Lord Sterling sent for William to build him a Flax dressing machine on his NJ Estate.  More Info included in sketch 17 – Archibald Campbell Son of Lord Neil Campbell and the history of Kells Hall.

Rented Dwelly Hill from Campbell for a year (My Note: Seems like a few Campbells rented this property – probably should check for a link)

Was confined during Rev on suspicion of being a whig.  Was confined for a year and 2 of his children died of smallpox during his confinement.

Children:

  • Maj John Reid m. 1st Margaret McArthur and 2nd Sarah McKie
  • William Reid M. Sally Wharry; Separate entry: William Reid, d. 1 Dec 1837 at 67.  He m. Sarah who d. 30 Apr 1818 at 50; another entry states he m. Sally Wharry and had  children: William, physician, James, John, David and Mary.  Yet another entry states he d. in 1807 and left minor children: John, James, William, and Mary.  Maybe another William Reid?? That Wm said to be  s/o William, Esq and Catherine Campbell)
  • James Reid m. Rebecca Brown
  • Joseph Reid m. Elizabeth Matthews
  • Elinor Reid (3rd child) m. William McNeil who d. 19 Nov 1833 at age 96
  • Alexander Reid m. Ann Lant. Had 5 Children: Catherine, William, James, Archibald, Anna Margaret
  • A Sister of Alexander Reid  m. Allen Campbell (Maybe another Alexander Reid as a Campbell marriage is not listed in children’s genealogies

Sarah Gorden Frasier Campbell McNeil

My Note: You can read more about in sketch 16 – Sarah Gordon Frasier Campbell McNeil

Sarah Gorden Frasier: Married 1st Duncan Campbell (My Note: Other sources say he was Archibald. Said to have died in 1764 on trip to America). She m. 2nd James McNeil who d. shortly after marriage.

A history given by a “Dr. Norton” was incorrect as to the order of her marriages and burial site but corrected by author.  Dr Norton lived in 1847 on same lot where Sarah’s house was originally (60-80 rods from Fort Edward and about 150 yards from where Jenny’s body was found – “site of massacre”)

Black Dunk sought shelter here following Allen Massacre.

Gen’s Frazier and Reidesel quartered here.

Description of the house where she resided included the location very near Fort Edwards.

Jane McCrea taken from her home.  There is an account of that day. Jane McCrea was a dau to Col John McCrea. (My Note: You can read a Wiki article on Jane McCrea here.)

Sarah Gordon Frazier Campbell McNeil had a dau that m. Peter B Tearse. (My Note: May have been grandaughter?)

Sarah’s husband was a relative of Archibald and Old Dunken. (My Note: See Ann Campbell, dau of White Dunk (AKA Old Dunken) and Ann Balenabe for possible explanation – or they could have been related as stated)

Relative of Gen Simon Frasier (cousin?).

Says 1st Husband Was Duncan Campbell (Most say it was Archibald). She afterward married in New York city, James McNeil, who soon afterwards died.

  • Dau Caty m. William Hunter of NY Some say Caty was widowed in Scotland (See Genealogy below)
  • Daniel Campbell: On impulse he boarded a vessel for England and did not return to NY for 21 years.  Shortly after his return, he left again for England and was not heard from again.
  • Archibald Campbell kept a Tavern in NYC along with his mother. Came to Argyl prior to Rev War and died here. Original owner of Lot 141 eventually owned by Timothy Eddy in 1848. (Per published lists, David Torry was original owner of lot 141).

My Notes: I have gone back and forth on trying to fit Black Dunk in as s/o Sarah. There is nothing historically linking them meaning no one ever made this claim in Fitch’s work but they seem to fit together at times. Archibald is well documented as her son so it is odd that Duncan wouldn’t be.

Remainder of my info on Sarah Gorden Frazier Campbell McNeil comes from: The Fort Edward book: containing some historical sketches, with … By Robert O. Bascom

Sarah Gordon Frasier, and Archibald Campbell who was related to Major Duncan Campbell of the “Black Watch,” or 42d Highland regiment, and who fell mortally wounded at Ticonderoga July 8, 1758. Archibald Campbell died at sea, while on his way to this country with his family.  (My Note: Unproven, I want to say probably not true, and possibly the result of romanticizing the story of Jane McCrea. Also, she was originally buried near Duncan so that could be the source of the rumor??)

Dau: Katherine Campbell m. Robert Hunter (above source says William)

Grandaughter, Polly (Mary) Hunter (d/o above Katherine) m. Major Peter Bailey Tierce, major in Col. Willett’s regiment, in the Revolutionary war, and afterwards a member of the Legislature.

  • Son (From S.McNeal Will): Archibald Campbell Tierce
  • Son (From S.McNeal Will): William Hunter Tierce
  • Dau: Mary or Polly Tierce m. William Finn. Mary and William had a son named Peter Tierce Finn who m. Mary Cozzens – Peter Tierce Finn, was a son of William Finn, one of the early settlers of Fort Edward

Daughter of Peter Tierce Finn who m. Mary Cozzens was Elizabeth A Finn m. George Scott (Fought in Civil War). They have one daughter, Mary E. Scott

Lachlan Campbell

My Note: Electric Scotland has a good history for Lachlan Campbell of the Isle of Isla, here: http://www.electricscotland.com/history/highlands/chapter7.htm . It is long and involved and any summary of mine would not do his history justice. Also has much info on his sons: 1) James Campbell, 2) George Campbell and

3) General Donald Campbell (From Gazetteer)

Other Info from Other Sources (not Gazetteer):

Misc Reference to Sarah Gordon Frazer Campbell McNeil: http://www.adirondacklife.com/content/view/76/119/  Cedric A. Traver, Excerpt from Obit:

GLENS FALLS * Cedric A. Traver, a lifelong resident of Glens Falls, passed away Saturday, June 30, 2007, at Eden Park Nursing Home. He lived a very busy and interesting life of 99 years plus. He outlived his entire family and most of his friends and business associates.

Born on Feb. 23, 1908, he was the son of William Andrew and Evelyn Stevens Traver……

Ced recently received an up-to-date genealogy of the Traver family from former County Judge John Austin. He had relationships he never realized. He could not believe his great aunt, Sarah McNeil had been lying beside Jane McCrea for more than 200 years in the State Street and Union Cemetery in Fort Edward. Jane was taken from Sarah’s home in June 1774 and killed. Sarah died in 1800 and arrangements were made at that time for the two of them to be buried together forever. His connection is through his grandmother, Catherine “Kate” Finn Traver, who didn’t die until 1925. He was naturally very proud to be Sarah’s great-nephew and involved in a bit of local history in his 100th year of life.
