Peter Smith Campbell

Notes From: Catherine Webb

Jacob Dittrick's will (I think he married one of Catherine Pickard's sisters) was witnessed by Peter Smith Campbell. I have a transcribed copy. The will was dated August 22, 1828 and was made by Jacob Dittrick of the Township of Grantham in the County of Lincoln. It states:

"Which said will is witnessed by Peter S Campbell of the Township of Sydenham (sic) in the County of Waterloo"

Following Dittrick's death, PSC made an oath and said that he was personally present and did see Jacob Dittrick sign the original will. PSC is listed as "Peter Smith Campbell of the Township of Sydenham in the County of Waterloo Merchant" This was signed at St. Catharines in the County of Lincoln this twenty ninth day of March in the year of our Lord One thousand eighteen hundred and fifty three.
