New Jersey Obituaries - 1900 - Mrs. Louisa L. (Allen) Campbell
Mrs. Louisa L. (Allen) Campbell, wife of Henry Campbell of Freehold, died at her home at that place on Sunday of a complication of diseases. She had been in failing health for about three years. The funeral was held at her late residence yesterday afternoon and was conducted by Rev. Hugh B. MacCauley, pastor of the Freehold Presbyterian church, of which Mrs. Campbell had been a member for many years. The bearers were her nephews, James S. Campbell, William Conover, Peter F. Conover, Charles V. Hope, John G. Parker and Benjamin John Parker. The body was buried in the Freehold cemetery.
Mrs. Campbell was the daughter of the late Anna and George L. Allen of Shrewsbury. She was born January 11th, 1822, on the old Allen homestead at Shrewsbury, now occupied by her sister, Mrs. Washington L. Hope. This property had been in the Allen family for more than 260 years. Mrs. Campbell was married to Henry Campbell, on November 16th, 1853, the wedding taking place at the Allen home. Immediately after the marriage the couple began housekeeping on Mr. Campbell’s farm at Freehold. Mr. Campbell is now and has for many years been one of the largest fruity growers of Monmouth county.
Mrs. Campbell was the mother of two children, only one of whom is now living. This is Mrs. Annie A. Randolph, wife of O. W. F. Randolph. Mr. Randolph is in business in New York. For a few years after Mrs. Randolph’s marriage she lived at Brooklyn, but when her mother’s health began to fail she and her husband moved to Freehold and took up their home on the farm, where Mrs. Randolph might minister to her mother’s needs. Her husband still maintains his business in New York.
Mrs. Campbell’s other child was a son, George A. Campbell, who died nine years ago. He was married and left two children. His widow and the two children are now living at Keyport.
Mrs. Campbell was a twin sister of the late Mrs. John W. Parker, mother of Benjamin John Parker of Shrewsbury. She leaves three other sisters. They are Mrs. Sarah M. Barclay, widow of Joseph Barclay of Eatontown, who now lives with her nephew, Benjamin John Parker; Mrs. Helen C. Hope, widow of Washington L. Hope, who lives on the Allen homestead, and Mrs. Mary W. Parker of Shrewsbury, widow of Benjamin C. Parker. Four grandchildren also survive her. They are Miss Anna L. F. Randolph and George M. F. Randolph, children of Mrs. Annie A. Randolph, and Asbury W. Campbell and George A. Campbell II, children of the late George A. Campbell.
