Campbell was born and reared near
Alamo, and while a boy began business
for himself, evincing aptitude fur man
agement aud thrift that was the won
der of the community in which he lived.
In 1873 Campbell was still quite a
young man, but was the owner of three
line farms, a large sawmill doing a
profitable business, and about forty
head of blooded horses. He had but
one fault—while intoxicated he was
quarrelsome and dangerous. In the
fall of 1873 he appeared in the streets of
A'amo almost insane from drink. While
in this condition he was approached by
his lifelong friend, Tom Little, who at
tempted to quiet him. Campbell at
once became enraged, and drawing a
knife, plunged it into Little's heart.
He was arrested and taken to Craw
fordsville. His trial was one of the
most memorable in the criminal annals
of Montgomery Co. Campl>ell employed
as his attorneys Daniel Voorhees, Con
gressman White and P. S. Kennedy.
The relatives of Little, prominent
and substantial people, employed Benj-
Harrison to assist R. B. I. Pierce,
listened to her prayers and her brother
was released. He had been in prison
so long that for some time after he
gained his freedom it seemed that his
mind was affected,' but after living for
several months in the country he
brightened materially and his old
friends saw signs of the strong, shrewd
man who had left them a quarter of a
century before for a prison cell. Dur
ing Campbell's imprisonment his prop
erty had been dissipated, bo lie was
practically penniless when released.
He, however, soon managed to ac
quire a team and wagon and with these
suddenly disappeared. It developed
that he started for the Southwest trad
ing horses as he went. He was remark
ably suceesful and by the time he
reached St. Louis he was several hun
dred dollars ahead. There he accident
ally learned of a sawmill for rent at
Pine Bluff, and he obtained a lease of
the mill. A citizen of Crawfordsville
who recently chanced to he in Pine
Bluff saw Campbell there, and says he
is one of the leading citizens of the
town. He is now a radical temperance

She via.-) born in Jessamine county,

married to Jacob Dearinger September

the couple, time being born after 1858,
when the husband became hopelessly
blind. He lived until May 30, 1683. In
addition to looking after her numerous
children, Mrs. Dearinger wascompelled
to lead her blind husband about.
To the sixteen children were born
