Richard Campbell and his wife Elizabeth had two children. They were: 1) William Richard, and 2) Ella Lauetto Campbell.
Dick Campbell worked several years in Pennsylvania as a railroad brakeman. Family stories relate that he was a man of great physical strength, despite the loss of three fingers lost while "coupling" railroad cars together.
The Campbells rented a room out of their home, to help with "expenses". It was under such circumstances that their daughter "Ellie" was to meet her future husband, Clarence Mackey.
