Mary CAMPBELL Hazlett
(1779 - 1824)
Mary was born Mar. 19, 1779, in Scotland or N. Ireland; d.
Apr. 10, 1824, in Lancaster Co., PA. She married in Lancaster Co. or
N. Ireland to a John
Hazlett who was born in County Down, N. Ireland. We have no
evidence that he was related to the John
Hazlett that married Mary's sister, Jane
Campbell, or to the Samuel
Hazlett that married Mary's sister Sarah
Mary was the 2nd of 8 children of Joseph
Campbell, b. 1748, in Scotland, d. 1824 in Nelson, PA,
(originally called Beecher's Island);
and Mary Harper, b. 1749, in
Scotland, d. 1844 in Nelson.
Mary's older sister Sally, and brother, John,
came to America before their younger siblings. We're not sure
exactly when. Sometime between 1800 and 1802 seems likely for Sam
and Sally --- their first child, Archibald
Hazlett was born in Lancaster Co., PA in 1803. John, Mary, and
Elizabeth may have come
slightly later. Brother John Campbell married soon after his arrival
and shortly thereafter moved to what is now Pittsburgh. Mary's son
Robert, was born in PA in 1809, so we know she was here before then.
Mary's parents, and youngest siblings sailed from Londonderry
to Perth Amboy, NJ in 1810 and went to Sam Hazlett's farm near
Stroudsburg PA before going to Nelson.
John Campbell and wife Elizabeth Bell moved to a farm near Pittsburgh shortly after they married, before his parents came to America. He and Elizabeth never came to Nelson. John's oldest sister Sarah/Sally, came to America about 1800. John and his older sister, Mary, may not have come until 1806.
After Mary's death in 1824, her husband and children moved to
a farm near his brother-in-law, John Campbell, in what is now
Pittsburgh's North side. Mary Campbell and John Hazlett had ten
children, all born in Lancaster Co., PA:
