The location where John Campbell married Elizabeth Walker is a subject of discussion. Our sole data point that speaks to this question is given in White 1902:3, who says:

Subject: Campbells of Kirnan
Date: December 30, 2006 7:46:40 PM EST

Hi All!

Here are five works with some discussion of the "Campbells of Kirnan". The story in White-1902 doesn't quite line up with the Scottish record, but the Kirnan history in Scotland does include an interesting American connection. In addition, Robert Campbell of Kirnan [uncle of the poet] wrote a book called "Life of John, Duke of Argyll and Greenwich". Perhaps this is origin of the Kirnan/Duke of Argyll story?

I agree wholeheartedly with Bill and Jerry, White-1902 is a great springboard into further research and she was totally dependent on her sources - for better or worse. A good case in point - the Campbell of Kirnan story hasn't quite worked out yet, but Emma's Scottish pedigree for the Logan family agrees with all the peerages.
