I am researching my gggrandfather Rosiel D. Campbell, born in LaFayette, Onondaga Co. in 1810, he died in Augusta, Eau Claire Co, WI in 1890, I believe he married and was widowed while in NY. He is on the 1840 census for Manchester, Boone Co., IL along with a David Campbell, 50-60 yrs old, a female 50-60, and two young boys. One of these show up on a later census as Langdon Campbell. Even with a name like Rosiel (aka Rossel), he is still hard to find. He is also listed on the ILGenWeb Civil War roster along with William L. and Charles R. Campbell, possibly his brothers.

My great, great, grandfather also was Rosiel David Campbell, son of David Campbell and Cornelia Spoor. He was born in 1810 in LaFayette, as you said. He married someone named Sally ? first. In 1833 they had twin sons, Eugene & Luzerne Campbell (sometimes shows up as Langdon). They also had a daughter, Laura. Some records on the internet show that the sons died at birth, but they did not. I have copies of letters they wrote home to their stepmother and to Rosiel during the Civil War and beyond. The daughter, Laura, did die at three years of age. Rosiel divorced Sally in 1840-41 - I have a copy of the divorce papers. He then Cornelia Linderman. They had 10 children but several died at a young age. The first two sons were named Charles and William. They went to war when the civil war started, with their father, Rosiel. The boys were 12 and 14. William died of the measles while at Corinth and is buried there. Rosiel had sent Charles back home to help Cornelia and he turned out to be my Great Grandfather. He named his first son, Charles William Campbell, after himself and his deceased brother. That Charles William Campbell,my grandfather, named his son, Charles William Campbell Jr. - my father. My name is Lynnette "Campbell" Finch.
Rosiel took his two sons to war in 1861 with the 46th Regiment of the Illinois volunteer and came back hom in 1862. My sister and I have copies of letters that were written between Rosiel and Cornelia and their children during this time.
The family records show that Rosiel's father was David Campbell and mother was Cornelia Spoor. It says that David was born in Scotland and the son of William and Mary. Cornelia Spoor was born in New York. It shows them being married in 1806 in New York, so he had to come to America before 1806.
I would love information on David and where in Scotland he came from - any information would be of great help.
I see that this posting of yours is 10 years old, so I don't know if you are using this site any longer.
Would love to hear from you!

I see that you responded to Jennifer's request for information on the family of Rosiel and Langdon Campbell. I left a full message on the message board about Langdon and his father Rosiel. How are you descended from Rosiel Campbell or Langdon Campbell (I have him as Luzerne or L.H. Campbell)? I would appreciate hearing from you and, expecially, if you have information on where in Scotland David Campbell, father of Rosiel, was from.
Thanks,
Lynnette "Campbell" Finch
