His father was born in Williamson County, Tenn., January 17, 1814, and his mother in Hickman County, Tenn., January 18, 1818.Our subject’s grandfather was William Campbell of North Carolina. The family came to Tennessee about 1800, and here Hiram Campbell died October 18, 1851, and his wife July 15, 1857.Our subject is one of four children and spent his early days on his father’s farm. He attended the common schools and Centreville Academy, and in 1870 began the study of medicine, attending lectures at the old Medical College, of Nashville, and the medical department of Vanderbilt University, from which he graduated in 1875. A year later he located at Pleasantville, in Hickman County, and there continued the practice of his profession until 1879, when he came to Giles County, and in 1881 to Lynnville. He is the leading physician of the town and has an extensive and lucrative practice. In 1877, he married Ardella C. Ross, of Giles County. They have three children: Willie R., Susan A. and Sophia M.

    Susan Sisco Campbell was my third great grandmother and her daughter Phebe Turner my second great. I would dearly love to find out who Susan’s parents were. After she had Phebe at age 16 with John Turner (he went to Arkansas and died there at about 21) Phebe became a ward of her Uncle John Sisco b. 1789 and Aunt Phoebe Ann Turner Sisco b. 1795. Susan later married Hiram H. Campbell and Phebe became of ward of Hiram.

    I am trying to find the parents of Susan (Sisco) Campbell (1818) who was my great great grandmother. Her daughter, Phebe (Phoebe) Turner (b. 1834 in Ivy Mills) was my great grandmother. Susan had Phebe “out of wedlock” by John Turner Jr. He removed, with his father and other family members, to Franklin County Arkansas and died there in about 1837-38,

    “On motion ordered by the Court that Henry Turner be appointed Administrator of the estate of John Turner deceased, and whereupon the said Henry Turner entered into bond in the penal sum of Twenty-two hundred dollars with Joseph T. Turner and Robert Russell as his two securities for the faithful performance of his duties as administrator aforesaid and entered upon the duties of his said administration.”

    This has to be John Jr., the land of “deceased” John Sr., was sold in 1837, and presumably the rest of his estate settled by that time.

    Phebe became a ward of her aunt and uncle, John Andrew Francisco Sisco (b. 1789) and Phoebe Ann Turner Sisco (b. 1795).

    *Note: John Turner was actually Phebe’s FATHER, not her brother. Just a way to cover up her illegitimate birth?
    When Susan married Hiram H. Campbell, Hiram became guardian of Phebe.

    Phebe married James Samuel Bates, -> Nora BatesLynch ->Mary Ruth Lynch Lunn -> me.
