I adopted this file, since David Witter is my 3x great grandfather. However, I do not have access to all the sources used by the original file manager. The quoted Wikipedia biography of my 2x great grandfather Thomas Lopton Campbell seems accurate to stories handed down by my family.

WikiTree profile: David Witter

The Ancestry source can be used at many public libraries, and at any LDS Family History Center for free.
I left a comment on the profile since I found the ancestry tree for this person.  The Marriage sources are included on his father's record, not on David's record in the ancestry tree, so I don't think they are appropriate for David's profile.
Thank you, Linda, that makes sense to me! The original biographer seemed to be laying out the complete Family history in all directions.

I think I will pare it down. I cannot access libraries, but I can rewrite what's there already.!

Some of these I don't understand - like when a link is called "false"  -- or "true". Apprectiate all the help to understand that I can get!

Thanks, George. I'm stuck at home 24/7 thanks to multiple sclerosis. It also causes a lot of typos if my hands get twitchy! So no libraries for me. But its good to know those books are readily available.

Yours, Margaret
