[Governor Thomas Mitchell Campbell]

Description: Thomas Mitchell Campbell was born on 22 April 1856 at Rusk Texas, the son of Thomas Duncan and Rachel Moore Campbell. He entered Trinity University (then located at Tehuacana) to study law in 1873, but dropped out after one year. He took a job in the Gregg county clerk's office and studied law at night. He was admitted to the bar in 1878 and first hung his shingle in Longview. There he stayed until he was appointed a master in chancery for the I&GN Railroad in 1889. In 1891 he moved his family to Palestine. That family consisted of his wife Fannie Irene Bruner and his five chileren. He resigned from the Railroad in 1897 and returned to private law practice in Palestine, becoming active in the Democratic party. At ex-governor Hogg's urging, he decided to run for governor and was elected and spent two terms in office from 1907-1911. Upon leaving the governorship, he returned to private law practice in Palestine, but remained active in Democratic politics. He ran unsuccessfully for the United States Senate in 1916 and served on the exemption board for World War I. He died in Galveston on 1 April 1923 and is buried in the center of the Palestine City Cemetery Complex. His grave is marked by a tall obelisk shaped monument. His home, located at 814 S. Sycamore, is still owned by descendants of his family.
