LACMA-e30013bRevAlexCampbellRev. Alexander Campbell  was born in 1832 in Ontario and was received on trial as a Methodist Episcopal minister in 1859 at Consecon and was ordained in 1863

In 1854 Morris (Guelph District) scarcely yet assumed the status of a circuit, but was supplied by the ministration of the Clinton preacher, the Rev. Alexander Campbell born in Ontario in 1832. He was a man of great strength, and could easily perform extra work.

Methodist Episcopal General Conference, held at Napanee, August, 1874 Rev. Alexander Campbell was born in Ontario in about 1832 of Scotch-Irish ancestry. In 1871, shortly before the Conference, he was stationed in Sidney township, Hastings county. In 1881, he and his wife (Hattie) and two daughters were living in Morrisburgh. Hattie Campbell had been born in Quebec, so it is no surprise to find the family on the 1891 census living in St. Johns (Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu) in the Eastern Townships….The Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives Photo Credit: e30013b

Rev. John Carroll writes, “About three years before this time (1851), there fell inder my pastoral care in Hamilton, a young man, the son of one of our leading friends in Guelph, who possessed a good mind and unmistakable talents for usefuless, whose reluctance to public efforts I endeavored, with no very great success, to overcome. I was, therefore, glad when I heard, a few years later, that he had entered the work. Here is his own account of the matter:-“On the 4th of July, 1854, Rev. Lewis Warner met me at a camp-meeting at Bond Head, and he and many others insisted on my going immediately into the work. I had just consecrated myself anew to God; and after spending the night in prayer, with some friends, I consented to go. I was at once sent, under Rev. A. Campbell’s (1st) superintendency, to Clinton. My destiation was Morris Mission, then just forming.” This letter is signed John Hough.
