      Rev. William S. Campbell served as minister of the Milton Presbyterian Church (Milton, Caswell County, NC) 1891-1896, being the tenth person to hold that position. He may be Rev. William Spencer Campbell (1859-1939), son of Rev. William Addison Campbell of Richmond, VA (1829-1896). Note the sender of the above envelope/letter is Rev. W. A. Campbell, 319 W. Grace St., Richmond, VA. And, for purposes of this database that assumption will be made. Researchers are advised, however, to proceed with caution.
