Notes:  According to the Griggs County Heritage, Albert Campbell was born at St. Marys. Perth, Ontario.  Family records give his birth date as 23 Dec 1864.  His parents are unknown.  He emmigrated to North Dakota in 1892, and hauled grain for Cooper.  In 1900, he became a naturalized citizen, and was farming.  In November 1902, he purchased the NW corner of Section 23, Tyrol Township, Griggs County, from Mr. and Mrs. Dana of New York, paying $1,120.00.  The 1910 Tyrol Twp. map shows Albert owning 2 adjacent quarter sections, consisting of 320 acres.  [SW ¼, Sec 14, and NW ¼, Sec. 23]  Albert was a grain farmer.

Albert married Nettie Pauline Haley on 11 Dec 1902, in Cooperstown.  Their only son, Cecil Kenneth, was born in 1904, in Minneapolis, Ottawa, Kansas, Nettie's hometown.  The family is found in both the USA and North Dakota census records from 1910 through 1925 on their farm in Tyrol Twp., Griggs, North Daktoa.

In 1914, their farmhouse burned down, and Albert built a modern house with Delco lights and plumbing.  Albert was murdered by John Slabber, a neighbor, with a shotgun on Friday, 25 Oct 1929.  The neighbor was found guilty on Monday, and spent the rest of his life in prison.  Funeral services were held in either the Masonic Temple or the Presbyterian Church, Cooperstown, on Tuesday, 29 Oct 1929.  Albert was buried in the Cooperstown Cemetery, Cooperstown, North Dakota.
