Mini Bios of People of Scots Descent
Daniel Campbell

DANIEL CAMPBELL (a lineal descendant of John Campbell, Duke of Argyle), born in Argyleshire, Scotland in 1660; was an officer in the army of William the Third, and was in the battle of "Boyne Waters". At the close of that war he settled in the north of Ireland. Among his children, Henry, born in 1697, married Martha Black, and sailed with his wife and five sons to America in 1733. These sons were William, Samuel, James, John, and Henry. Another son, Daniel born in America, lived in Amherst to the advanced age of 100 years. All these sons, except James, had families. The father died in 1785, aged 88 years. Of these six sons, William, Samuel, and Henry have descendants in Acworth. Of William's five sons, James, David, and Daniel were soldiers in the Continental army. After their discharge, James and Daniel settled in Acworth. James was discharged on account of sickness, having been brought to the point of death by smallpox and camp fever. He was a weaver, a common occupation of the men among the Scotch-Irish of that day. His warm coverlets are still remembered by the oldest.
