Jane CAMPBELL Hazlett (1790 - 1832)

Jane was born Dec 31, 1790 in N. Ireland (or possibly Scotland); d. Jan. 8, 1832 in Tioga Co., PA to Joseph Campbell, b. 1748 in Scotland and Mary Harper, b. there 1749. On Apr. 4, 1811, in Nelson (originally called Beecher's Island) in Tioga Co., PA she married her sister Sally's brother-in-law, John Hazlett, b. abt. 1789 in N. Ireland or Scotland.

Jane Campbell, along with her parents, and the youngest of her siblings, sailed from Londonderry to Perth Amboy, NJ in 1810. They traveled to a farm owned by Sam Hazlett , husband of Jane's sister, Sally. We don't know for sure when John came to America. Presumably he came with his older brother. If so he was in Lancaster Co., PA before 1803.

By 1806, Sam and wife Sally, and presumably John, were living on Sam's farm near Stroudsburg, Monroe Co., PA. Sam, Jane's father, Joseph Campbell, and her uncle, John Campbell, had purchased land in Beecher's Island. They all traveled from Stroudsburg to Beecher's Island as part of the "Campbell-Hazlett Expedition" that arrived in Nelson early in 1811.
