  • Notes 

    • Name: Alcy CAMPBELL · Sex: F · Birth: ABT. 1776 in North Carolina ·
      Death: 10 SEP 1853 in Cherokee County, Texas ·
      Note: From Burnis Argo dated 10/13/1998; Here is the thinking on
      Alcy:
      1. The couple named one of their sons "Campbell".
      2. Everyone who has done census work on the Prestridges in AL, MS, &
      TX have found Campbells either living next door or nearby.
      3. In Amite County, MS Territory, Larkin Prestridge, John Prestridge,
      and John Campbell all made application for land grants of quarter
      sections, all in Sect. 23, Twp. 3 North, Range 5 East, on 12/02/1811.
      Larkin, John Campbell, and Aaron Campbell all had land dealing
      together in Franklin County, GA in about this same time period. One
      involving Aaron Campbell and John Campbell mention some of the land as
      being "part of a 200 acre granted to Alcy Campbell". A David
      Campbell is also given. The Prestridges and Campbells seem to have
      started in Franklin County, GA about 1797,moved to Amite County, MS
      (in 1810 Census); moved to Monroe County, AL Territory in 1816; moved
      to Cherokee County, TX in 1847/48.
      A few years ago, a Prestridge researcher in OK was talking to a lady
      in Hood County, TX about some other family names and mentioned she was
      wanting to know if anything was known about the maiden name of
      Larkin's wife, Alcy. Another woman, also very elderly, was visiting in
      the home of the Hood County lady at that time and said that Alcy's
      father was John Campbell and her grandfather was Joe Campbell. She
      said that Alcy had a brother named Aaron. She also said that
      the Walling family was involved and spoke of Lucinda Bell. She further
      said that Alcy's mother's grandfather was a John Walling. Said the
      Wallings and Campbells had later lived in Cherokee County, TX and then
      in Hood County, same as the Prestridges. Of course, we don't know how
      much of this is the truth but at least it provides us some clues.
