I am researching Charles Campbell married 1785 Mary Alexander, daughter of James. My line starts with Charles and Mary's daughter Rachel Campbell 1800-1873 married Richard Bayless in 1815 Harrison County, KY.
I am quite confused about what appears to be two Charles Campbells and their parentage. I have Charles' parents as Hugh Campbell 1705 – 1774 married Esther Magill 1718 – 1784 but I have no proof. I am just as confused about James Alexander's parents and have James the son of Archibald married Margaret Parks. I don't think this is correct as I can't find James as a son of Archibald. As they say, genealogy without proof is mythology.
Any light you can shine on these problems will be greatly appreciated.
