Elizabeth Campbell was born December 6, 1802, in Tennessee, to James Campbell and Anna Osborn. As a young girl, in about 1809, she moved with her parents and sister and brothers from Jefferson County, Tennessee, just across the Tennessee/Kentucky border to that part of Knox County, Kentucky, which later became Whitley County. [1][2] By the time of the 1820 census, Elizabeth, still a teenager, was living next door to her parents with her husband Charles G. Creekmore, and a male child under 5 years old. [3] By the time of the 1830 census, though, that child was gone from their household, and was apparently the boy living with Elizabeth's elderly parents. [4] Soon after that, Elizabeth's father died, and his will mentions "William C. Campbell, son of Elizabeth Creekmore, my will is that if he continues with his grandmother till he is of age for him to have his cow so called and his bed and furniture." [5] We infer from this that William was a half-brother to Elizabeth's children by Charles Gray Creekmore. William apparently with lived his mother only briefly after her marriage.

William stayed with his widowed grandmother, Anna Osborn Campbell, not only until he came of age, but for the rest of her life. [6]

Campbell-3500 and Campbell-15665 appear to represent the same person because: they both say Wife of Charles Gray Creekmore. Campbell15665- don't have much just kids. Campbell-3500 has it all but kids. Tell me if this right.
