1. William Campbell is first found when his marriage is recorded in the Dutch Church in Tappan, N. Y. (p. 7 of a copy). The record states that he was born in England and married, April 17, 1717, Aeltje Minnelay, born Haverstraw, N. Y., July 15, 1697. In the Dutch records of Tappan his name is at times spelled Cempel, Kemmel and Campbel. The grave stones of himself and wife are still standing close to the old Dutch church in Tappan, and the inscription on his states that he was born in the Isle of Man and baptized in "Cork London Church," February 19, 1680, and died June 7, 1760. She died August 10, 1779.

Issue as baptized in the Tappan church: Aelbert, William, Mensje, Annatie, Johannes, Abraham, Robert, Arie, Cornelis, Elizabeth.

2. Mensje Campbell (Manche), daughter of William and Aeltje (Minnelay) Campbell, was baptized in the Dutch Church at Tappan, N. Y., January 3, 1721, and married Roelof Stephens, whose will was proved November 27, 1761. The marriage records of that period have been lost or destroyed, but without doubt they were married in Tappan.
