Mary (Small) Campbell (1786-1886)

Mrs. Mary Campbell Dies at Franklin
After a Life of One Hundred Years and One Month.

At twelve o’clock on Wednesday (noon) Mrs. Mary Campbell, the oldest inhabitant of Warren County, dies at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Samuel Woodward, in Franklin, at the advanced age of one hundred years and one month. She had no particular illness, but for the past ten days has been steadily failing. She passed away surrounded by the members of her family, and fully retained her consciousness to the last.
On March 20 Mrs. Campbell celebrated her one hundredth anniversary of her birth. She was born in the northern part of Pennsylvania, her maiden name being Small. When she was ten years of age her family determined to move west, and Mrs. Campbell walked all the way from her birthplace to Pittsburg. About a year later they arrived at the site of Franklin, and purchased land which is still in possession of the family. A few months later Franklin was laid out.
In 1806, our subject married Samuel Campbell. Of their children but three survive, Edwin R. Campbell, now in California, William H. Campbell, of Hamilton, and Mrs. Woodward. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell lived happily together for forty years when he was killed by the kick of a horse. Mrs. Campbell continued to live on the farm until a few years ago when she was removed tot her daughter’s home in Franklin. For the past twelve years with the exception of the time she has been confined to her room, being too feeble to be moved about. She was very patient and never complained during this entire period.
In religion Mrs. Campbell was raised a Presbyterian and has always adhered to that creed. The funeral services will be held to-day at half-past ten o’clock and the remains will be interred in Greenwood Cemetery at Hamilton. The pall bearer will be Henry L. Morey, James E. Campbell, Aaron Campbell, William Campbell, E. G. Rathbone and Clarence Harding, the grandsons of Mrs. Campbell.
