I was just surfing the internet for my names sake, Kenneth Campbell. I am an African American born in 1953 to my mother Scellerstine Campbell, St. Louis Mo., USA.
My mother was Born in 1935 - (1984), St. Louis mo., and she never met her father nor any Campbell's from this side of her lineage.
I have never met anyone from my mother's side of Campbell relatives.
It's ironic that I served in the U.S. Air force in 1972 & Kenneth Campbell of the VC10 was also a servant in the Air Force.
I am not sure, but this last name might have been one of a slave owner whose last name was Campbell that eventually named the descendants of my mother.
... Kind of heart wrenching and sad that she did not know where her last name derived. I have thought about changing my last name, at least to give my daughter some kind of historical identity. And the more I think about it, it seems to be the best thing.
