    • Observations about Isaiah Campbell
      By Margaret S. Loosle


      Isaiah was born in Ridgebury Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, on 27 of April 1820 according to family records. His parents were Benajiah Campbell and Eunice Button Campbell. They were cousins as she was a Campbell before her marriage.

      He married Phebe Ann Campbell when he was about 17 years old. One record, the Temple Index Bureau Card, shows that he was married first to Rachel Fuller. Rachel was married to his older brother so I think it most likely that Phebe was his first wife and the Rachel connection was a mistake. In any case, Phebe claimed she and Isaiah were married 19 years so I have estimated that they were married in about 1837. Her family lived in Pennsylvania but his family was probably living in New York State. Phebe Ann and Isaiah were cousins.

      Isaiah joined the Mormon movement only a year and a half after its organization. He was likely instrumental in converting Phebe and her family. Even before their marriage, different members of the family began moving to the Kirkland, Ohio, area to join other Mormons in their quest for Zion. It is not known when they left the Bradford County area but they were still living there in 1840, according to the U S Federal Census. Judging by their location in South Creek Township, that would mean that they were living close to her family. Tax lists show that Isaiah was taxed on a cow in 1840, 1841, and 1842 and nothing thereafter so I suspect they relocated about 1843 and made their way to Nauvoo, Illinois.

      Isaiah must have used up the little resources he had because when the majority of the Saints left Nauvoo and crossed Iowa in 1845, he did not leave. In the fall of 1846, mobs entered the city and forced the remainder of the Mormon population across the Mississippi into Iowa. By 1950, we find Isaiah and Phobe living in Burlington, Iowa, which is north of Nauvoo on the Iowa side of the Mississippi. Living in the household are Ira, Phebe Ann, John Nye (who was Phebe’s nephew) and James and Delity Springsteen. Delity was the Isaiah’s first cousin (Ezekiel’s daughter).

      Sometime soon after the 1850 census, Isaiah and other Campbell families left Burlington and traveled to Utah. In January of 1854, he married Sarah Susannah Garrard as a plural wife. Family souses tell us that after Sarah started having children, Phebe became dissatisfied because she had no children and after being married for 19 years divorced Isaiah.

      Sarah had six children with Isaiah. She claimed he was very mean to her and literally put her and her children out of the house. While married to Sarah, Isaiah married Rosetta Charity Campbell but she did not stay with him long and he may just been taking care of her as she was a widow.

      Isaiah then married Susannah Ellen Clark and is found in the 1870 Census living with her and what appears to be eight of her children by previous marriages. They are all listed under Campbell but that is not their real last name. According to temple records he was sealed to Susannah Clark and also her daughter, Ellen, in 1872. There is no evidence that Isaiah had children with anyone else other than Sarah Susannah Garrard. Ellen was married to someone else in 1877.

      Isaiah died on 2 May 1899 in North Ogden, Weber, Utah, He is buried in the Ben Lomond Cemetery. You can explore sources of the information presented above in Family Tree. His number is KWJ4-G9C.



      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.
