Alexander Campbell (1778-1856) married Sarah Urquhart, (?-1842) daughter of the Reverend John Urquhart. Formerly of Maine, the Reverend Urquhart established a Church of Scotland at Princetown and two years later moved to the Miramichi. A merchant and shipbuilder, Alexander became a member of the House of Assembly and in 1828 was appointed to the office of the Treasurer of Prince Edward Island. In 1830 he moved to New Brunswick with his wife Sarah. He died at Dalhousie, New Brunswick, on 29 October 1856. Sarah died at Campbellton, New Brunswick, on 30 September 1842.
