I recently wrote to the Lawrence County (Tennessee) Archives for copies of their Campbell family file. Photocopies of an old – and obviously brittle – family Bible were included. I don’t know these folks but thought some of you might find something useful here. Since these WEST were obviously related to this CAMPBELL family, I will send those entries also.
