David Campbell

David Campbell (1851-1932) married Mary Campbell (1856-1883) and Christina Abel (1855-1932).

Only two of the children from his first marriage survived to adulthood.

After his first wife died, he remarried and only one of the five children born to this union survived to adulthood.

David came from a coal-mining background in the Stirling region, west of Edinburgh. He married at Skinflats where much of the mining took place.

In Queensland, he worked at Ipswich and then went north to Central Queensland where he continued to mine.
