Campbell family of Moggill

Donald Campbell, his wife Marion and family arrived on the Harbinger in Sydney in February 1849. The Campbell's then travelled to Moreton Bay on a coastal sailer. Donald and Marion had nine children: Ewen, the eldest (22) down to Ewan, the youngest (5). From Moreton Bay, they set off for Glenelg Station, near Warwick, then to Bin Bin near Dalby and eventually settling permanently in Moggill in March 1852.

Marion was left with nine children to manage the farm when Donald died on 1 August 1858. He was buried in Moggill Cemetery. Some of the children became land owners in the Moggill district. John owned selection 38 and Donald and Alexander originally owned the land on which the Moggill Cemetery is sited. Marion died in 1893 at the ripe of age of 98. She too, is buried in Moggill Cemetery.
