- WHITE 1902:3 tells us that only three of the children of Elizabeth and John came to America with their parents. Yet she is able to identify the spouses of all but two of these children. The date of birth for Elizabeth is given in White 1902 as April 1703, making her the first born child of her parents, John II and Katherine Rutherford. Assuming that she married at age 20, she would have married John Cambell about 1723, and her oldest children would have come of age about 1743. If the traditional 1726 date of emigration of John II is accepted, then it would seem likely that ALL of Elizabeth's children were underage at the time the family reached the New World. We would expect that they would have come to the new world with their parents. In fact, with a marriage date of 1723, we would expect most of the children in White's list to have been born in America. Even if a later date of immigraiton (say, 1743) is accepted most of the children would still be underage, and so unlikely to have remained behind in Ireland. These considerations suggest that White had a very incomplete account of the family, and was guessing that only three of the nine children came with their parents to the New WORLD. It is also possible that the child list includes persons in other Campbell lines that are unrelated to the Wigton Walker line.Bill 17:19, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
