James (Richard?) Campbell 1825 - 1902

Posted: 1537288100000
Classification: Census
Surnames: Campbell
Looking for a verification. My g-g-grandfather, James (Richard?) Campbell b. Jun 1825, d. 16 Jan 1902. I can reliably find him in the 1880 census in Boggs Twp., Centre Co. In that census, his father is listed as having a Maryland birthplace. The majority of family trees I can find have a James Harris Campbell as his father. The problem is that the only James Harris I can find lists his birth as 20 April 1793 in Maryland, not Pennsylvania. I understand that the 1880 census could be incorrect, the census worker may have asked a neighbor about the family I'm looking for or, perish the thought, just made it up.

So if anyone has any information either proving or disproving this family relationship please pass it on. I'll take any help so that I know to keep following this trail or leave this family in (virtual) peace.

Thanks!

Peace,
B
