Magdalena Gamel (5)

1785 Mar 11: Born in Virginia (2) to James Campbell. (2, p DanG-039) (24)

"[Magdalena's] ancestors came from Ireland, and there is a tradition that a large amount of property in Ireland belongs to the heirs of a brother and sister who were brought to this country by a stranger."

This quotation comes from a biography of Magdalena's daughter Anna Good Horning which was published in 1890 when Anna was 64. (38, p720) No further source is given. Perhaps it was Anna, perhaps not. The 1860 US Census suggests that Magdalena spent her final years with Anna and the Horning family.
