New Jersey Obituaries - 1899 - Mrs. Deborah B. (Johnson) Campbell

Mrs. Deborah B. Campbell, wife of Derrick G. Campbell of New Monmouth, died last Thursday of hemorrhage of the stomach, aged 75 years. Mrs. Campbell had been in good health and she had worked about the house all Thursday morning. She had a slight hemorrhage at noon, but she did not consider it of sufficient importance to send for a doctor. She was around all the afternoon and at night cooked supper for the family. After supper she went upstairs, when she was again taken with a hemorrhage. A doctor was sent for, but she died before he arrived. Mr. Campbell was alone with her when death came.

Mrs. Campbell was the daughter of Lambert Johnson and was born and brought up at Brown's Dock. She was married to Mr. Campbell 47 years ago and since that time she had lived in the house in which she died. In early life she joined the Navesink Methodist church and upon her removal to New Monmouth she united with the Harmony Methodist church. She was always very active in church work and was a very liberal contributor toward its support. Her christianity was of the practical sort; the kind that gave succor to the needy and relieved those who were in distress. Her charities were numerous but she was very unostentatious in her manner of giving.

The funeral was held on Monday at ten o'clock at the house. Rev. J. Ward Clark of Belford conducted the service, assisted by Rev. William V. Wilson, Rev. M. M. Finch and Rev. W. H. J. Parker. The bearers were George Morford, Joseph D. Frost, James P., Walter and John Hopping and John Hillyer. The body was buried at Fair View cemetery.

Per the Death Notice Mrs. Campbell was aged 75 years, 6 months and 19days
