Argie Clarke Campbell Submitted by: Jo Aguirre
Argie Clarke Campbell, a twin son of Henry and Betty Campbell was born January 19, 1871 at Taylorsville, Illinois. Being one of the youngest children, both parents died when he was quite young.
Grandmother Abbot brought the twins and came with her people to Cloud county, Kansas, in 1876. Here they grew to manhood. Argie was married on October 22, 1894 to Miss Mattie McClellan.
In 1901 they came to Byron, Okla., then a struggling pioneer village, where they built a new home and lived until 1903 when they returned to Cloud county. Here they lived until 1913 when they came with their four children to Cherokee and have since made it their home.
He was converted when a young man and was active in some Sunday school and church most of the time afterward. At the time of his death he was a member of the Nazarene church in Cherokee. He was a man who had high ideals of Christian living and was always interested in community affairs. He (had) a high standard for honesty and fairness. He helped rear to maturity their four children who, with their loving, devoted mother, remain to bear their loneliness in the love of a great loving father. They are Rev. R.H. Campbell, Okeene, Okla.; Roy C. Campbell, Quinlan, Okla.; Mrs. Leonard T. Boston, Cherokee, Okla.; and Roscoe M. Campbell, Aline, Okla. Fifteen grandchildren, two brothers, Joe Campbell of Girard, Ill. and his twin brother, Arthur H. Campbell of Cherokee; his mother-in-law, Mrs. Sarah McClellan of Glasco, Kansas, and a host of other relatives and friends who have shown their respect by their interest during his four months' illness, also survive.
He passed into that eternal peace and happiness which he so often spoke of on July 2, 1938, at 11:45 p.m., watched over by his wife and children. He was 67 years, five months and 13 days of age, but he had lived much for he had enjoyed much.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, July 4, at the Friends church in Cherokee.
