Notes for E PRESTON "PRESS" CAMPBELL:
(Abstract From Crenshaw County News-June 01,1916)
Last Tuesday while Lee Sikes, white, and Harb Holley, colored, were plowing on Press Campbell’s place near Vernledge, Harb used some abusive language to Sikes. Sikes shot him twice with birdshot, but neither of the shots inflicted dangerous wounds

(Abstract From The Luverne Journal -Dec. 20,1900)
Difficulty At Rodger’s Sale:
On last Thursday, at Mr. Milton Rodger’s sale, a difficulty occurred between Dee Jones and Press Campbell, when John Pruett ran in and made a lick at Jones with a knife, cutting his coat. Jones picked up a mallet and tapped Pruett on the head which laid him out. No one else was hurt in the fight, and it appears that the Pruett lick closed the engagement. Dee Jones then mounted a horse and came to Luverne and sent a doctor out there to Pruett, saying that some body had tapped old John Pruett on the head with a maul and laid him out. A doctor went out there and found Mr. Pruett was badly wounded, but not dangerously.

[Obituary]
CAMPBELL-E.Preston Campbell passed into the great beyond.Mr.Campbell had been confined to his bed for about six months & while his death was not unexpected it is a great loss to his family.Mr. Campbell (Uncle Press) as he was familiarly called, was well known throughout the county and will be greatly missed by his family.He is survived by his wife and two children,a son and daughter and many other relatives.Funeral services were held at the Baptist church Monday afternoon after which his remains were interred at Emmaus Cemetery.

Joyce,
Thank you so much for all the information. The information on Daniel Campbell said children. Is the article saying that Amy Elizabeth Campbell was the only child or was #2 Joseph Lane Campbell also their son?
Thanks again.

Joyce,
Do you have copies of the documentation on the Skipper's to share? Also, somewhere I saw you had Stephen S. Loe as Stephen Singleton Loe and I wondered what document you found with a middle name for him? My son is a direct descendant of Stephen and also of John & Sallie Skipper.
Thx!
