David L. Campbell was born in 1828 probably in Tennessee, possibly Davidson County but do not know for sure. He married Sarah Jane Pulley March 13, 1851 in Davidson County, Tennessee. They had six children, Robert Kelly b 1851, David Franklin b 1854, Nancy Ann b. 1855, John William b. 1859, Mary Emily b. 1865, and Mack b. 1867.David L. Campbell died January 18, 1867 at 39 years old. He is buried in the Pulley Family Cemetery outside of Nashville. He grave marker says "AN HONEST MAN IS THE NOBLEST WORK OF GOD". We have all the family information from David forward but cannot find anything earlier than David.
We are looking for David's birth place and birth parents. We think a generation or two before may have been from Scotland.
