The deceased who was 64 years old was ill for about two weeks. He was a true friend to many and was beloved by all those with whom he came into contact. Evidence of this was borne by the large crowd which followed in the funeral procession yesterday afternoon.

Mr. Campbell was born on December 13, 1879, at Enterprise, Leguan Island, Essequebo, to the late Mr. Samuel Augustus Campbell (schoolmaster), and his wife, the late Mrs. Rebecca Campbell nee Humphrey and was educated at St. PhilipÂ?s Anglican School. After leaving school he joined the Civil Service retiring after 33 years and when he held the office of Clerk of Court of the Georgetown Judicial District. Between 1904 and 1935 Mr. Campbell served as Secretary and Short Hand writer of the following Government Commissions: RegistrarÂ?s Office Commission (1904), Penal Settlement Inquiry (1906), Hospital Commission (1907), Church Disestablishment Commission (1929), Penal Settlement Inquiry (1922).


The funeral took place yesterday afternoon. The Rev. Fr. J. Goodwin, S.J. conducted a short service at the house after which the cortege proceeded to the Brickdam Cathedral where Fr. Goodwin also officiated at a quiet and simple ceremony. From the Cathedral the procession moved onto Le Repentir where the interment took place, Fr. Goodwin performing the last rites at the graveside.

Mr. Campbell has left to mourn their loss his beloved wife, Virginia; his only daughter Mrs. Dorothy Bayley (wife of Dr. R. T. Bayley); two brothers, Dr. W. W. Campbell and Mr. C. A. Campbell (solicitor); and one sister, Mrs. A. B. Brown.

To these and other relatives the Daily Chronicle tenders its sympathy Â? (R. A. V.)

Identifying Gill Lineage - Descendants of Sancho

Soliciting Information - Gill of Guyana and Barbados.  I am really focusing on the Sancho lineage. I believe it's best to chat about the Gill people from the migration from Barbados to Demerara to the known members of Buxton and Friendship and thus to Golden Grove, Nabaclis and Haslington and their movement beyond Guyana in the twentieth century. I need to be enlightened.  I am soliciting information on the lineage of the kinship of GILL. I need to identify the Sancho ancestor of the members of the kinship of Gill, mentioned below. I am referring to Gill of Buxton-Friendship and their off springs - Arthur Gill and his descendants – of Golden Grove-Nabaclis.  The known members of this Gill kinship of Gill includes; Susan Elizabeth Gill died on Sunday, November 27, 1938.  Ms. Gill was 91 years old. Ms. Gill is the mother of Edith Gill, Irene Gill, Winnie Gill, Arthur Gill, Iris Gill, Oscar Gill, and Princess Gill. Source: The Daily Chronicle - Monday, November 27, 1939: page eight.  Art…
