James S. Campbell was born June 3, 1770 in Pennsylvania and died in Whitley County, Indiana March 13, 1850. Little is known about his wife except that her name was Jane and she was born in Tennessee. James had three children, Henry (c1810 - ), Phebe (1832- ) and Elizabeth R (1828- bef. 1900 ).
Phebe Campbell married Henry Galentine and had David A (1856- ), Charles M (1858- ), Elizabeth D (1859- ), William H (1862- ) and Elmer E (1866- ). Charles M. Galentine married Sarah J ____. Elmer married Katie King and had a daughter Ida Mary Galentine (see Norcatur Kansas Births: Gallentine Ida Mary 12 Feb 1898 Father: Elmer Gallentine Mother:Katie King.
