Mr. Charles Fraser Campbell, 70, of Anlaby, who died at the Kapunda Hospital recently, was one of the best known identities of the district, where the whole of his life had been spent. He was born on the Anlaby Estate, his father having resided at Anlaby before him. Mr. Campbell’s parents came from Scotland about 1850 and went straight to Anlaby. When deceased was nine years old, his father died. He was employed at Anlaby during the whole of his lifetime, and for the past 34 years held the position of overseer. His knowledge of sheep, particularly Merinos, was extensive, and he often acted as judge at shows. Mr. Campbell was held in high esteem by the Dutton family, whom he served faithfully for so many years. The esteem was expressed in the following words, which Mrs. H. H. Dutton attached to her wreath:—"Dear and faithful friend to my husband, my children, and myself.'' In June, 1904, Mr. Campbell married Miss Annie Keene, the ceremony taking place at Hamilton. Mrs. Campbell survives, also two sons Messrs. Donald Campbell, of Anlaby and Robert Campbell, of Kadina, and three daughters (Mrs. Butler, of Adelaide, and Nurses Dorothy and Betty Campbell, of the Adelaide Hospital).
