Obituary Deseret News Dec 15 1886
Campbell--At North Ogden, November 24th 1886, Jonathan Campbell. Was born in the State of Massachusetts, about the year 1805 or 1806. Was married in his 22nd year of which marriage five children were born to him. In the year 1839 or 1840, he was baptized into the Church by his brother, Benager Campbell. Gathered with the Saints to Nauvoo in the early part of the year 1844 previous to the death of the Prophet Joseph; stayed at Nauvoo and labored on the Temple. At the time the Saints were expelled, he and his family were driven across the river; underwent many hardships and finally arrived at Winter Quarters. When Captain Allen came to Council Bluffs to get four or five companies of men to go to Mexico, Brother Campbell enlisted in the Mormon Battalion, on the 16th of July, 1846 and left with the camp of the Saints, all that was dear and dear to him, a loving wife and three small children. His wife he never saw again, as she died at the Bluffs, having endured so many harships and trials that she could endure no more. Her three little children were brought to Salt Lake valley with the Pioneers. Brother Campbell went through with the Pioneers to California, there got an honorable discharge. Came to the Salt Lake valley by the Southern route from Los Angeles in 1848; lived in Salt Lake City till the fall of 1850, when he moved up to Odgen with his wife and children (he having married a Sister Lucinda Shipman) and wintred at what is known as Farr's Fort. In the spring of 1851 he located and helped to settle what is now North Ogden, where he has lived ever since, having labored as a teacher all of his life, when he was too feeble to perform that duty. He died as he had lived--a faithful, true Latter-Day Saint
