DAVID CAMPBELL is one of Minnesota's early settlers, having come to Stearns county in 1856, and the following spring, to Watab, where he has resided ever since. He was born in what is now the province of Ontario, Canada, on the 27th of April, 1831. His early days were spent in farming in his native country, until 1855, when he removed to Ohio, and thence, to Illinois, where he remained until his final removal to Minnesota. Since coming to Watab, he was engaged in logging and lumbering on the river for ten years, and afterwards kept a hotel for some time, but is now exclusively engaged on his farm, which is principally devoted to stock-raising. Mr. Campbell was married in 1864, to Mrs. Mary Murphy, of Pennsylvania. Pearl is their only child.
