I'm afraid we would need more information than just their name. Grandfather's birth date? location? great grandfather's name? It is easier to find people between 1860 and 1940.

Also you might want tags like "brickwall" and "genealogy" instead of "on" and "my".

Also a profile link if they are no longer living?

Ok, I see you are brand new so you wouldn't know a profile. But we would need as much info as possible of non-living members to find them.

I think the short answer is, the 13th Century. Check out https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clan_Campbell.

If your dad or another Campbell male (brother, cousin, uncle) is willing, you should get a yDNA37 marker test and join the Campbell DNA Project:  https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/campbell/about  A yDNA test of a Campbell male will help narrow your search to you genetic line of Campbells and then you can ignore all the other Campbell families that are not your genetic relatives.
