GEORGE W. CAMPBELL, a native of the county of which he is now Treasurer,
was born at Lick Creek, August 12, 1843, a son of Maxwell and Sarah
(Field) Campbell, who were natives respectively of North Carolina and
Kentucky, and who were among the pioneers of Orange County, Indiana. At
twenty years of age George W. Campbell began doing for himself, and
shortly thereafter engaged in merchandising at Orangeville, where he
continued until 1870, when he purchased a farm on Lost River and for three
years was engaged in agricultural pursuits. He then opened a store at
Lick Creek, and in 1881 established another at Newton Stewart. In 1883 he
purchased an interest in the West Baden Springs, and besides this and his
extensive mercantile interests, Mr. Campbell owns 550 acres of land which
are under his direct supervision. In politics he has always in the best
interests of the Republican party, and in 1882 was elected County
Treasurer, and to his credit be it said that the finances of Orange County
have never been entrusted to more competent or trustworthy hands. Mr.
Campbell was married in 1866 to Miss Annie Rhodes, and to them two
children have been born, named Fannie R. and Noble C. The home of the
family is at Lick Creek in French Lick Township.
