CAMPBELL, FIELDS, SEVIER posted by Jerry Halstead on Sunday, December 5, 1999

I believe my grandmother, Frances Adeline Campbell Halstead was born in Chilhowie, Washington County, VA on 1/10/1878. I believe her parents to be Rev James Charles Campbell and Eliza Ann Fields Campbell, both born in Lebanon, Russell County, VA. James Charles Campbell is supposed to be the youngest son of Winnie Sevier Campbell, who is supposed to be the youngest daughter of General John Sevier. Any relevant information about these people would be greatly appreciated.
