Biography of John Percy Campbell

JOHN PERCY CAMPBELL. The subject of this sketch is a son of Samuel P.

He is still hale and hearty, though having reached his threescore years and ten, and resides with his good wife near Gatewood, Missouri, where they are surrounded by a large circle of admiring friends. They are both consistent members of the Christian Church.

Mr. Adams was born in Clark County, Illinois, on the nth of April 1843, and his ancestors, who were of Scotch and German birth, were early settlers of Kentucky and Ohio. His father, Abner Adams, was born in Ohio, and in 1831 crossed the plains to California, engaging in mining at different camps in that state until i860, when he returned to his old home for his family. He had gone to the Golden state by way of the northern route, but took his family by the southern route, traveling through Texas, New Mexico and Arizona to Watsonville, Santa Cruz County, California, where he made a location. There his death occurred in 1882, at the age of seventy-one years, but his wife is...
