Arthur P. Campbell (1872 – 1955?) - Family (from NY Times Obituary Dec. 8, 1955)–

Fourth unknown

On 1880 Census their household also listed two dressmakers:
Mattie Higgins (1854 -
Annie Kline (1835 -

According to 1880 census, only Florence, Arthur and Lottie, were at school this year. The other family members were “at home”

When Alfred S. Campbell died his obituary claims he left a wife, son and only 3 daughters. I believe, Minnie passed and I am not sure which other daughter did not survive. Isabella died two years after Alfred.

Alfred S. Campbell made his home in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Last known(of Annie, widow) at 554 Madison Ave., Elizabeth, NJ.
In 1921 listing, Campbell Art Co. Art Printers were at 1144 Elizabeth Ave., Elizabeth, NJ, and son Arthur P. Campbell owned or worked for an ad agency at 546 Madison Ave., NY
