Captain Laughlin Campbell

Campbell Of Argyll


Away back in the French and Indian wars, one Captain Laughlin Campbell had won such distinction as to gain for him the promise, so seldom fulfilled, of a reward from the Crown. It came to his descendants in the shape of a grant of wild lands in the wilderness through which their ancestor had marched and fought, and in 1765 another Campbell led a colony into those wilds, and named their settlement for their noble kinsman the Duke of Argyle.
