Franklin Co, PA: Campbell Will Links

Thought I would post a page to help out anyone looking for (Campbell family) Franklin Co wills. Plus it will help me when away from the computer. I have grouped these according to whom I think belongs to a certain family or Township – your opinions may differ and if they do, please email me or leave a note in the comment section so I can make corrections.

I started with a list posted at Rootsweb. You can find that here. I changed up a few notations because it worked better for me. BIG thanks to that poster who saved me (and others) a TON of time! The date the will was proven is first, the book and page number refers to the particular will book and the image number is where you find it on the microfilmed roll.

Or make it easy on yourself and follow the links provided.

Keep in mind; the helpful parts of this post are the links. I have verified very little info and nothing here should be construed as a complete or accurate abstract.

Thomas M. was born in Metal Twp, Franklin Co, and is buried in Knobsville Methodist Cemetery, Fulton Co. His parents are in the Metal Twp census in 1850 and 1860. Did the family move to Fulton County and then back to Franklin? Matilda, daughter of John and Ann died 1864 and is buried in Lower Path Valley Cemetery. Can anyone help clear this up?
