I have been searching in hopes of finding more information about a William possibly Richard Campbell that was born in Kentucky. He married a Mary or Martha, Ellen/Ella Chastain in Indiana.
From census information I show them living together in Bedford, Lawrence Indiana in the 1900 census having children of Mary, Thomas, Joe, James, Johnie, Ida, and Sharlett. In the 1910 census William is no longer there and it is just Ellen/Ella Campbell with the children. Sharlett is also spelt Charlotte. Some of the older boys left home, James may be our line that at some point in time took on the Armstrong last name.
James Campbell Armstrong was born in Indiana 1892 and d in Missouri. On his death certificate is states Richard Campbell (hand wrote is adopted father) and mother as Mary Ellen Chastine.
If anyone has anything close to this information please contact me!!!
