Happy to hear the Link(s) provided you with some additional data on your CURRY & COLE families.
At this time I don't know that I am related to the CAMPBELL family of Van Buren Co., MI or the SCOTT family of Randolph Co., IN. I do know that there were CAMPBELL & SCOTT families in Darke & Mercer counties of Ohio from the 1840's forward. Darke & Mercer counties are located in west central Ohio, with Darke being adjacent and Mercer slightly to the northeast of Randolph Co., IN. Piqua, Sidney & Urbana, in west central Ohio , the primary "home" towns for my AA families since ca 1813 are all within an approximate 50 mile radius of several other "pockets" of early AA settlements in west central Ohio and that eastern portion of Indiana.
If not directly related I would almost bet that we have inter-familial connections. We seem to have too many ancestors/relatives living within a fairly close proximity to each other in Ohio & Indiana during the same time periods.
Yes, it is spooky and yes, we just might be related.
