Classification: Query
Surnames: Campbell, Lothian, McLaurin
New development:

I have been following up on names listed alongside Mary and John Campbell in the Campbell family Bible, which I associated with John b. ~1828 and Mary b. ~1822 (both likely children of Alexander Campbell and Catherine McLaurin). The names in this list (all written in the same hand) are:

Mary Campbell, b. Dec. 16, 1823
Janet Campbell, b. Dec. 2, 1825
Allan Campbell, b. Sept. 24, 1827
John Campbell, b. Dec. 2, 1829
Margret Campbell, b. Feb. 8, 1833
Donald Campbell, b. Aug. 8, 1835
Ann Campbell, b. Dec. 24, 1838

I no longer think that the names in the Bible refer to Alexander and Catharine’s children. While trying follow up on some of the other names, I found four Campbells with names and birthdates matching the above list very closely, children of Peter and Christy Campbell in the 1852 census for Lochiel, Ontario (Peter and Christy Campbell were Margaret Lothian’s grandparents):

157 11 Campbell Peter Farmer Scotland Baptist 51 M M
157 12 Campbell Christy Scotland Baptist 50 F M
157 13 Campbell John Labourer Canada Baptist 22 M S
157 14 Campbell Margaret Labourer Canada Baptist 19 F S
157 15 Campbell Donald Labourer Canada Baptist 15 M S
157 16 Campbell Ann Labourer Canada Baptist 13 F S

It seems more likely, then, that the Campbell births listed in the Bible were actually Margarent Lothian’s aunts and uncles. I think the connections I proposed above still hold; just that the names in the Bible are not part of the evidence for them.
