Finding Our Warrick County, IN Ancestors

Campbell, James W. 

Transcribed from the book "History of Warrick County" by Goodspeed, Chicago: Goodspeed Bros., 1885, p. 140, submitted by Judy.

James W. Campbell, a native of the county in which he now resides, was born in Boon Township, September 29, 1852, one of five children born to Isaac C. and Lepine J. (Fuller) Campbell, both of whom were natives of Warrick County. Isaac C. Campbell was one of the leading farmers of his locality and was also largely interested in tobacco raising. He was an honest and upright citizen and a man whose death, which occurred September 8, 1883, was widely felt and deeply mourned. James W., was liberally educated in the schools of his native county and for some time was engaged in school teaching. In September, 1880, he began clerking in the store of J. M. Hudspeth & Co., of Boonville, but in 1881 began filling the office of Sheriff of Warrick County, having been duly elected to that position the year previous. Previous to this time, however, he had served as a deputy county official with credit, and the acceptable manner in which he administered to the affairs that came to him was, perhaps, one of the principal causes of his promotion. In politics he is a democrat and is a member of the Knights of Pythias.
