Campbell, Annie (2? July 1849 - 19 July 1934)

Mrs. Robert Campbell, for many years a resident here, died July 19 at the home of her son Hugh in Cincinnati, Ohio after an illness of five weeks resulting from a fall which fractured a hop joint.

Annie Ponsonby Brownrigg was born in Cumberland County, England July 2?, 1849. She came to America with her parents at the age of ten years. The family settled at Horicon, Wis., later moving to Poynette. Here she grew to womanhood and was married to Robert Campbell in 1868. A few years later they moved to Neillsville, coming in on the Humbird stage line over the old corduroy road.

During those early years she took an active part in the social and religious life of Neillsville. She was one of the charter members of the Presbyterian church when it was established here and was an active and consistent worker in the organization as long as she lived here. She was a lady of quiet and refined tastes and exerted a gentle influence for good in all with whom she came in contact.

Mr. Campbell died in January 1909 and since that time she has made her home with her son Hugh.

She is survived by three son, William in California; Hugh and Gordon in Cincinnati. She leaves also five grandchildren. Mrs. Paul White of Neillsville is a second cousin.

The body was brought here for burial accompanied by the two sons Hugh and Gordon, Mrs. Gordon Campbell and Hugh’s son John. Funeral services were held at Lowe’s Funeral home Sunday afternoon, the Rev. Paul White officiating.
