We went to Inverness, where my Campbell line is from.
The earliest Campbell known is John Campbell, my great-great-great grandfather, born in Scotland in 1797.

We went to a little local music festival.

 John Campbell, my great-great-great grandfather, born in Scotland in 1797.  Immigrated 1815.

To be honest, my trip to the geneaology center was disappointing.  I actually discovered how much I already knew though by looking back through info. from some links.  John Campbell immigrated in 1815 and was followed by his parents in 1817, and they lived in Pittsburgh, PA later.

"John Campbell ... was born in Scotland in 1797, and died in White County, Ill., when nearly ninety years of age. He came to America when eighteen years of age. About two years later his parents and two brothers (Angus and Donald) and two sisters (Jeanette and Isabella) came to this country. The parents located in Pittsburg, Pa., where their deaths occurred. In Baltimore John Campbell married Clara Barcher, who was born in Amsterdam, Holland, in 1809. She died in White County, Ill., at the age of seventy-seven years. After the marriage of John and Clara Campbell they removed to Sandusky County, Ohio, where they lived nineteen years, and then (1853) came to Fulton County and settled in Aubbeenaubbee township, where they lived about six years.
