Biography of John B. Campbell

John B. Campbell, a strong and forceful representative of the Muskogee bar and a former judge of the court of appeals of Oklahoma, belongs to that class of men whose standards of life are true and whose endorsement of every plan or measure means a consistent and continuous support thereof. John B. Campbell comes to the southwest from Wisconsin, his birth having occurred in Lafayette county, on a farm near Gratiot, March 12, 1868, his parents being Francis and Mary (Cole) Campbell. The father was born in the north of Ireland and was of Scotch descent, while the mother, who was of remote Irish ancestry, was born in Lafayette county, Wisconsin, where her parents had settled as frontier people. The ancestry in the Cole line is traced back to colonial days and the family gave several representatives to the American army in the Revolutionary war. John B. Campbell was a farm boy at the period when the farm did not offer the splendid advantages of the present day and his early experiences brought to him a knowledge concerning the value of industry, energy and determination. Ambitious to acquire a thorough education, he supplemented his course in the public schools of his native county by study in Ripon College of Wisconsin, and then matriculated in the State University, from which he was graduated in 1893 on the completion of a...
