Daniel Campbell (a lineal descendant of John Campbell, Duke of Ar-
gyle), b. 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 were
Henry, b. in 1697, m. 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, was b. in America, who lived in Amherst to
the advanced age of 100 years. All these sons, except James, had families.
The father d. 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 dis-
charge, James and Daniel s. in Acworth. James was discharged on account
of sickness, having been brought to the point of death by small-pox 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

lace fiimily), s. in Acworth, 1785 — ch., I., Henry, went through Dartmouth
College but did not graduate for reasons entirely honorable to himself, rem.
to the West. II., May, m. Luther Stuart of Berlin, Vt. Of her a friend
writes: "Mrs. Stuart was in some respects a remarkable woman, singularly
well-read for her opportunities in English literature and especially in the
whole range of English poets." She was "wonderfully sympathetic, af-
fectionate, and magnetic in her influence upon others." Her children were,
1, Henry L., read law with Hon. A. L. Baker of Buffalo, N. Y. ; studied
medicine with Dr. Hatch of Fort Ann, N. Y. ; from 1837 to 1840 a civil
engineer in Michigan; has resided in New York City since 1844, where he
has been interested in the development of various appliances of inventive
mechanics, and associated with various reformatory movements in the city.
"His varied pursuits have brought him into contact with most of the lead-
ing thinkers and workers of the metropolis. He has long been known as
perhaps the most trusted personal friend of Horace Greeley." In 1856
he m. Maria L. Stoddard of Hudson, N. Y. ; 2, Volney H., has been twice
m., and has a large family of children ; 3, Carlos D., for four years chief
editor of the New York Sun ; for two years published a daily paper of his
own called "The New Yorker." He published in his boyhood a book of
poems entitled "lanthe and other poems." In his " Recollections of a Busy
Life," Horace Greeley writes of him: "Of those I knew and loved in
youth the majority have already crossed the dark river, and I will not impose

even their names upon an unsympathizing world. Among them is

a young poet of promise, who was slowly yielding to consumption, when the
tidings of our Bull Run disaster snapped short his thread of life." He left
a wife and daughter, res. Long Island; 4, Caroline J., m. Walter Hewitt.

James Campbell, son of Henry Carapbell (the youngest of the five sons
who emigrated from Ireland) and Janet Mack, who was b. on the ocean, —
was b. in Londonderry; enlisted in the Continental service for three years or
during the war in 1777; was wounded in the battle of Stillwater. After
peace was declared in 1783, he rem. to Acworth, having purchased his farm
in 1781. He was much employed as a surveyor and conveyancer; kept
school in various places in the winter from 1783 to '91. He was often in
office in the town, as will be seen by reference to the list of town officers.
The accuracy with which he kept the town records, and his penmanship, were
remarkable for the times. He was elected Register of Deeds in the County
of Cheshire in 1803 ; held the office by successive re-elections until his death,
in 1825, without opposition. His son Lewis held it in the same manner from
his father's death until 1836, at which time he resigned on account of ill
health. James Campbell m. Desire Slader (see Slader family) — ch., I.,

Dr. Stephen Carleton, brother of Oliver, s. in Acworth in 1803. He
was the earliest comer of the trio of doctors who have spent their lives in
Acworth, whose names will never be forgotten in town. " He was a man
of few words, a gentleman of the old school, kind and generous in his feel-
ings, and always trying to do his best when his services were required."
There was no disposition in him to humbug people to promote his business
interests. It was a favorite saying of his, "If people were. aware how little
doctors knew, they would not trust them as they did." He was quite suc-
cessful in his practice, especially in fevers. He never married. He died
in 1857, aged 80.
