Learning about your family history and ancestors is an incredible experience. I had heard stories and tales through the years but I had never written anything down. I knew that my aunts had done some extensive research but after they each died and then the Big House was sold and my father died, I thought that all the information was lost. I am grateful for contacts who have been providing much information on the Campbell family history. I knew that the Campbell family had owned a lot of land at one time and it is interesting to know that the Campbell family owned some of the land that is now Fort Jackson. I recently found out that there is a reunion of the Fort Jackson Landowners that takes place annually I believe. I am sorry to say that I was unable to attend this event that took place this past weekend. I am sure that some great information about family and history was exchanged. If you are reading this blog and attended that event please share some comments. I would love to hear about it!
