I am hoping someone can help me! I am trying to figure out if the parents of Obadiah Campbell
B: 2 Jul 1740 Sussex, Sussex, New Jersey
D: 26 Mar 1819 Shamokin, Northumberland, Pennsylvania, USA
and married Mary Opdyke
B:21 May 1742 Bethlehem, Hunterdon, New Jersey, USA
D: 10 Aug 1801 Shamokin, Northumberland, Pennsylvania, USA
were Robert Campbell (1694 NJ - 10/26/1776 NJ) and Catherine Cunningham (1717 Scotland - 1814 Sussex, NJ) daughter of the 12th Earl of Glencairn William Cunningham.

Thanks!
Amy

If you google Earl of Glencairn you will find several references which say the 8th Earl , William Cunningham, died in 1630-31 - so unlikely he had a daughter in 1717!

I have her in my family tree and I am a descendent of Obadiah. It looks like she is "disputed" as being his mother. There seem to be multiple Obadiah Campbells. I have not removed her yet, because I have more supporting sources that support her being Obadiah Campbell's mother. Though there is a new document that a third cousin of mine posted that is from the Campbell American Society(?? not sure of the actual name) that says there is no merit to this claim. I have read many things sine I added it to my tree and am leaving her there until I can prove otherwise.

I know that this is not much help.

Here's a website I visited,

Thank you for posting this! Yeah, I am completely confused about whether or not this is correct. Hopefully at some point someone will figure it out! If you come across anything else, please let me know!

Thanks!
