      Isaiah, the third child of Benajah and Eunice Button Campbell, was born 27 April 1820 at Ridgeberry, Bradford, Pennsylvania. he was one in a family of eleven children. His brothers
      and sisters were Joel, John, Phoebe Ann, Sylvester, Lucy, Daniel, Betsy, William, Ammon and Nancy. He grew to manhood under the hardships of pioneering days. He received very little schooling.
      The family moved around quite a lot as some of the children were born in Ridgeberry, Bradford, Pennsylvania, some at Bradford, Pennsylvania, some at Hornby, Stuben, New York and two at Wayland, Schyler, New York. While in the East, Isaiah married Rachel Fuller and to them, were born two children, Isaiah and Hannah. They were later divorced.
      He then married his cousin Phoebe Ann Campbell, daughter of John and Mercy Worden Campbell. They were married in Pennsylvania in the early 1840's. They had no children and were later divorced. They came across the plains and were among the first settlers of North Ogden.
      On 21 January 1854 Isaiah was married to Sarah Susannah Garrard. Sarah Susannah was born 4 February 1832 at Dis, Norfolk, England, the daughter of Timothy and Susannah Evered Quantrille Garrard. To this union six children were born all at North Ogden. They were Isiah Franklin Dewey 1855, Sarah Susannah 1857, Eunice Priscilla 1860, Frederick Robert 1862, Caroline Amelia 1864 and Benajah Rodwell 1867.
      Keeping food, clothing and shelter for all took much hard work on the part of the parents and children. The settlement was only three years old and times were very hard and the small community suffered.
      There was a large family of Campbells in the community with uncles, brothers and cousins intermingling in civic and church activities.
      During this time polygamy was being Practiced and Isaiah took more wives; (4) Rosetta Campbell and (5) Susannah Hathaway 1858 and Some say another (6) Susannah Hathaway 1858. (I wonder if (5) and (6) were the same person.) On 15 February 1869 (3) Sarah Susannah Garrard was granted a divorce From Isaiah and afterward on 25 December 1871 she was married to Greenleaf Blodgett and had a number of children by him. She died 19 December 1914 and \Vas buried at North Ogden, Utah. Little is known of the rest of Isaiah's life and there may be discrepancies. He died 21 May 1899 and was buried at North Ogden, Utah.
