    3. Larry R Nichols, thank you for your thoughts on Osa Josephine Cowhick. I had actually thought of this also but wondered what others had thought. I read an article at one time telling about a preacher from the J'ville area took his family to MT and I wondered if Osee had gone with them as their Nanny, another possibility. Thanks for responding.

    1. [ILSCOTT] Help on James Campbell and Amelia Harrison
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: sfc_snake Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.illinois.counties.scott/368/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Sorry for the length of the post. I have looked at some past questions posted here as far back as 2000 on the questions about James and Amelia Campbell (Harrison) of Madison County Missouri. There does not seem to be any consensus on a good answer as to the parents of James or Amelia. Looking and reading all the books and publications on early Virginia nothing is in black and white that I can see. Here are the commonalities that I can find. James Campbell born about 1774 in VA. And died abt. 1826 in Madison county MO. James married an Amelia Harrison (possibly the last name) in Rockingham VA in 1795. Amelia was born about 1780/1 in S.C. (common agreement) and died in Scott county IL. About 1859. James and Amelia had just a few children which all seem to have been born in Madison county MO. William Levi 1803-1850 Samuel 1804-1861 Elizabeth 1807-1894 Robert 1810-1853 Rueben 1814-1902 James 1815-1882 Belinda 1817-1849 Walter 1824-1902 Artimessia 1826-1930 (not sure since she would have been born the same year Lames the father died) There does not seem to be any commonalities about James Campbell's parents. I have seen a Hugh Campbell and Mary Hanna, a John Campbell and Elizabeth McDonald and also a John Campbell and Marry Hamilton. I have looked on Google and books and I can't find anything on a James and Amelia Campbell with all those children for proof. So if anybody has definitive sources on this line of Campbell's it would be greatly appreciated. And also would this Campbell line be in anyway related to the Campbell's from Scotland? If there are any links from the internet please post in the answer. I did post this in three places, Madison County MO., Scott County IL., and Virginia (no county) Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

    1. [ILSCOTT] Deed for Plum Creek Church original site
    2. Robert L. Webb via
    3. Plum Creek, near Bluffs. Organized 1829. Records are complete, have been scanned and xeroxed. First building, according to the church records, was built on one acre of land given by Briscoe Davis, in September 1829. When the church decided to build a new building, in April 1851, they discovered they did not have title to the land where their old building sat. They then obtained a deed on a one acre tract of land (deed shows the following legal description): April 24, 1851 - Part of W 1/2 of SW 1/4 of Sec 10, T14N R13W In May 1927, Paulina Hart, Sadie Hart, and Margarett Clemons, trustees sold the property (building and land) to J. G. Moore for $125.00.

    1. [ILSCOTT] Elder John RECORD
    2. Robert L. Webb via
    3. Biographical Sketch of Elder John RecordThe following brief memoir is based upon information received from the surviving wife of the deceased, and other friends; and from personal knowledge of the writer; and written by special request of one of Elder Record&rsquo;s traveling companions in the ministry. - PETER LONG. John Record was born in some of the first years of the present century, (exact date not known by the writer,) in Chatham Co., North Carolina. His father, as we have been informed by some who knew him, removed from Carolina to Tennessee, and became himself a distinguished Baptist preacher. Here his family grew up, and his son John removing to Illinois, married Miss Lucy McManus. The writer is not informed whether the union took place in Tennessee or Illinois. The subject of this sketch became seriously concerned for the welfare of his soul in 1832, and obtaining a satsifactory hope of forgiveness of sins was baptized by Elder Stephen Coonrod in November of the same year, and was licensed by Shiloh Church to preach the gospel, September 14, 1833, and set apart by ordination, December 13, 1834. The ministers composing the presbytery at the time of his ordination were, William Rogers, Thornton Sheppard, John Howerton, and Stephen Coonrod. His wife, in a late letter to the writer, says, &ldquo;he has labored chiefly the counties of Macoupin, Greene, Scott, Morgan, and Sangamon. He has spent nearly the last ten years of his life in riding and preaching the gospel in different parts of the country. He has baptized a great many - as to the number, I cannot say.&rdquo; Brother Record was a most attractive speaker. I have heard him several times in my life at Associations, and he was sure to arrest the attention in a short time of such as, under less impressive preachers, would be nodding, whispering, or forming groups in the outskirts of the congregation, or walking round. But more than this - his labors seemed to be abundantly blessed to many souls and, as his surviving wife writes, he spent nearly entirely all his time for many of the latter years of his life in traveling and preaching, and will be much missed hereafter in those parts where he labored so abundantly; yet we trust that He who holds the &ldquo;stars (ministers) in his right hand&rdquo; has or will supply the deficiency, by raising up others in his stead. He has left a wife, several children, and a host of brethren and friends, who mourn his departure while almost in the prime of life and in the midst of his usefulness. The following lines may be somewhat descriptive of Record preaching to a congregation assembled in a grove. Behold him rise - a noble form indeed, His visage manly, and his gestures bland: The wide spread audience gives the better heed, For, lo! &rsquo;tis Record now that fills the stand. He speaks, and guilty sinners trembling cry, And stand condemn&rsquo;d by God&rsquo;s most righteous law; He points to Jesus, and with lifted eye They look to Christ, and peace and comfort draw. Fill&rsquo;d with fresh zeal, his language louder grows,While many a heaving bosom round him swell, His own transported with emotion glows, To paint the joys of heaven and pains of hell. The sermon done - the preacher takes his seat,While smothered sobs, and shouts still murmur round; O may the impressions made be deeply set, And useful after many days be found. This distinguished servant of God departed this life February 13, 1858.- copied from Zion&rsquo;s Advocate, 1858, Vol. 5, No. 20, pp. 315-316.
