[Mary Elizabeth Black Campbell]

Description: Mary E. Black Campbell, daughter of Capt. and Mrs. Joseph Black and wife of John Campbell. She was born 18 December 1853 and died 4 January 1927. Her husband was a member of the Confederace and rode with Capt. Joseph Black, a friend and neighbor. The story goes that as they turned to ride away, he waved back at the tall dark-eyed girl standing by the gate. He said, “Mary Elizabeth Black, you’re the prettiest girl in the county and when I return from this awful war, I’m going to marry you!” One year after the end of the war, they were married. They settled on a 270 acre tract of land and raised a family of 12 children: eight daughters and four sons, ten of whom are buried in the Campbell Family cemetery in Anderson County.
