There are more questions than answers concerning the origin
of Norman Campbell of Richmond County, NC and his wife Sarah.
See her page.
It is believed that Norman was born about 1745/50. Very likely
the traditional Highland Scot method of naming the first son
after the father's father was used. Because we know Norman and Sarah
named there oldest son John, we can be relatively certain that Norman's
father was John Campbell. Family tradition believes Norman was among the
large number of Highland Scots who came up the Cape Fear River
in the middle 1700's to settle in Cumberland County.
This is what we know:
The Census of 1810 shows: Norman Campbell (26-45), 2 white females under 10 years,
1 white female (16-26). His neighbors were Owen Slaughter, Sen., Harris
Hutson, Solomon Sprawls, John McRae, John Powel, William Bozman, Elijah Sprawls,
Hubert Williams, James Meacham, Samuel Covington and William C. Capel.
In 1811 Norman Campbell of Richmond County purchased from Donald McInnish of
Cumberland County 100 acs. in Richmond Co. on E. side Naked Creek. Wits. John & Wm. Stewart. Proved 1813.
From the Muster Rolls
of Soldiers of War of 1812 we know Norman was a soldier
in Richmond County's 2nd Reg.
From Richmond County Estate records
we learn that on April 17, 1820 Alexander Campbell (Norman's brother?) obtained letters
of administration on the estate of Norman Campbell, deceased, giving
bond in the sum of four hundred dollars with Alexander Frazer as security.
On the same day Alexander Campbell is appointed guardian to Margaret,
Christian, John, Angus and Daniel Campbell, orphan children of Norman Campbell.
The following people attended the estate sale of Norman Campbell, deceased.
Sarah Campbell, Isaac Erwin, Alexander McRae, John Morrison, Alexander Frazier (Is he
the same Alexander Frazer who married Christian Stewart in Richmond County on April 13, 1803?), John
Bethune, Murdock Currie, Angus McDonald and John McRae
