Scope and Content Note
The papers in the Campbell Family Collection date from 1780 to 1881 and cover four generations of family history. The focus of the collection is the correspondence of William W. Campbell, Judge of the Superior Court of New York City, and his manuscript of The Annals of Tryon County. Also included are papers of his children, Cleaveland J. Campbell, Helen S. Campbell, and Douglas Campbell, as well as other family members. The activities of the family in Cherry Valley in the earlier part of the nineteenth century are documented through a manuscript music book, survey maps of Cherry Valley and Belvedere, and the correspondence, medical observations, and financial records of William B. Campbell, as well as the papers of James S. Campbell.
Series titles consisting of personal names followed by dates in parenthesis indicate birth and death dates rather than the date range of the manuscripts.
