Surnames: ANDERSON, CAMPBELL
Looking for info on families of ANDERSON/CAMPBELL:
James Anderson (my great-great-grandfather), a stonemason, b.(?) m. 1792 in Scotland to Janet or Annie Campbell (who is sister of Mary Campbell who is Highland Mary who Robert Burns fancied and wrote poetry and songs for). James d. prior to 1832 when son, William, and William's widowed mother immigrated to Canada. Family lore is that Andersons were from Edinbourgh.

James and Annie had at least 3 children born in Scotland:
William b: 1804-1806 (my great-grandfather) The only one

that left Scotland I think.
Mary m: a Robertson in Scotland
Annie m: Matthew Turnbull in Scotland

James and Janet's (or Annie's) son, William , d. 17 Jan 1872 in Ontario, Canada. m. Susan abt. 1836 in Canada. On William's tombstone it states however, he was from Ayr, not Edinbourgh.

William and Susan had:
James b: 4 Feb 1837, d: 1910
Mary b: 3 Nov 1838, d: abt 1894
Robert b: 25 Dec 1840
Peter b: 24 Aug 1843
John b: 31 Aug 1845
Ann b: 12 Oct 1847
Archibald b: 8 Jan 1850 d: 1929 (my grandfather)
William b: 27 Feb 1858

Anybody working on a line of either of these families of ANDERSON or CAMPBELL??? I would be so excited to learn more about my family.
