Biography of Thomas B. Campbell
Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Campbell, Thomas B., was born in Fayetteville, Onondaga county, January 8, 1854, and was two years old when his parents moved to Ithaca. George, father of our subject, was a miller, employed first in Ithaca by the Halseys, then by H. C. Williams, where he remained for several years as foreman miller; in 1881 he bought a mill in Brookton, where he still remains. Thomas B. was the oldest of seven children; he was educated in the public sehools and Ithaca Academy. At the age of sixteen years he was apprenticed to learn the mason's trade, serving four years, after which he followed the trade as journeyman for three or four years; then he began the business of bnilding and contracting, which he has steadily followed since, and many of our public and private edifices can attest to his ability in that direction. In politics he is a Republican, and in 1889-90 represented the fourth ward in the Board of Alderman. He married in February, 1881, Laura F., daughter of Edwin V. Poole, a merchant. They have one daughter, Louise.
