I'm researching the ancestors of John Paul CAMPBELL and Rachel LEA/LEE.This couple settled in Louisiana, but both were born in North Carolina.John Paul Campbell, b. abt. 1790 in NC, was said to have taught law and astronomy in LA before settling on his farm in Caldwell Parish ca. 1840s, so it's obvious he was highly educated. He d. 25 Feb 1845 on his land in Caldwell Par., LA. Rachel Lea was b. 24 Sep 1795 in NC.Their first child was b. in MS in 1820, so they married ca. 1818/1819.
I've been looking at the Leas of Leasburg, but have yet to make a connection, although I was intrigued by the school that was run by the Leas.Does anyone know anything about a Lea family and Campbell family living in close proximity in NC ca. 1790s - early 1800s?
