Hiram Campbell was born on January 16, 1879, and passed away July 2, 1966 at the age of 87 years, 4
months, and 16 days.
He was married to Elsabeth Halcomb on April 8, 1897. To this union were born five children. Two of his
children preceded him in death, Maggie Adams can Carbitt Campbell; three of the children are still living,
Elizabeth Hounshell of Edinburg, Indiana, Vada Adams of Hope, Indiana, and Finley Campbell of Letcher,
After the death of his first wife, he married Diora Fields on October 11, 1973. She died August 2, 1952.
He was a kind and loving father. His kindness did not stop there for he was loved by all who knew him. He
left behind three children, 36 grand-children, and 75 great-grandchildren.
He was a faithful member of the Old Regular Baptist Church but at the end he was unable to attend
services. His chair in the church is now empty, not to be filled by him anymore on this earth. But we rest
assured that our loss is heaven's gain and that he is resting around God's throne.
