Roderick moved to Victoria County in Ontario. He married Christina Campbell in the Presbyterian Church in Mariposa, Ontario, on December 27, 1865. Christina was born in Woodville, Ontario, on September 1, 1845. Her father was Kenneth Campbell. Her mother was Sarah McLeod.

For the first five years of their marriage, Roderick and Christina lived in Fenelon Falls, Ontario.

Then they went to Woodville, Ontario, where Roderick had a business as a merchant for 15 years. In 1885, they moved to Cannington, Ontario.

In the spring of 1888, Roderick travelled to British Columbia to investigate business opportunities. He was enthusiastic enough that he returned to Cannington to sell his business and then move his family to Vancouver. They arrived on November 14, 1888.

Roderick had hoped to open a business as a boot merchant, but there were no vacant locations anywhere in Vancouver. He had to wait for a month until a space became available in the Condell Block at the corner of Homer Street and Cordova Street.

Roderick Campbell (junior)

Roderick Campbell (junior) was born on April 12, 1869 in Fenelon Falls, Ontario.

Roderick junior was in business with Jonathan Storey. The firm initially sold harnesses, saddles and trunks; it later dealt in Studebaker commercial trucks. It also distributed dry goods and small appliances.

On August 4, 1896, in Vancouver, Roderick junior married Annie Storey, who was the sister of Jonathan Storey. She was born in Collingwood, Ontario (although one source says England) on June 28, 1872. Her father was James Storey. Her mother was Mary Burton.

Roderick junior lived at 2015 Haro Street from 1906 to 1919.

Roderick junior died in Vancouver after going to the hospital for what was expected to be a tooth extraction. He developed problems relating to his heart, and he died suddenly. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Annie tried to sort out the Storey & Campbell business with her brother, Jonathan. She ended up suing Jonathan to get him to sell some property so that he could buy out the interest in the business that she had inherited from Roderick junior. Although the case may have gone to the Supreme Court of Canada, the final result is not available.

Annie died in Vancouver on November 14, 1947.

Roderick junior and Annie did not have any children.

Sarah Campbell, obituary, Vancouver World, July 28, 1908, page 12:

Campbell: The death occurred on Sunday of Sarah Campbell, mother of Mr. R. Campbell, senior. The deceased lady was 93 years of age and was born in Scotland. The funeral took place from the family residence 1893 Pendrill street this morning, and was strictly private.

Sunday afternoon witnessed the close of a life that began in the historic year 1815. Born in Scotland, shortly before the Battle of Waterloo, the late Mrs. Campbell accompanied her parents to this country when she was about 15 years of age. Like many other immigrants from the Highlands, the newcomers settled in the county of Glengarry, in what was then known as Upper Canada. She was married at the age of 20, but within three years her husband was drowned in the “The Long Sault,” on the Ottawa river. Left with two young children, one of whom was Mr. Roderick Campbell, of Gilford Street, of this city, she removed to Montreal where she continued to live for over half a century. About fourteen years ago she returned to the scenes of her earlier life in Canada, spending four years with her daughter in Glengarry county. During the last ten years of her life she has resided with her son in this city, enjoying not only the tender care of living friends, but also the affectionate esteem of a large circle of acquaintances and friends.

Mrs. Campbell was a type of the old-fashioned Highland gentlewoman—instinctively courteous, unswervingly loyal and profoundly religious. Unable, for many years, to do more than move slowly about the house, she retained her mental vigor almost to the last, and the aroma of her patient, cheerful, Christian spirit will linger long with those who had the privilege of being associated with her. “The memory of the just is blessed.”

Sarah Campbell, death notice, Vancouver Province, July 27, 1908, page 12: “Campbell—Died in Vancouver, B.C., July 16, 1908, Sarah Campbell, aged 93 years, at the residence of her son, Mr. R. Campbell, Sr., 1893 Pendrill street. The funeral will take place Tuesday morning. Rev. R.J. Wilson, assisted by Rev. Mr. McLaren will officiate. By special request the funeral will be private and no flowers.”

Society, Vancouver Province, December 28, 1915, page 8 [includes photograph of Mr. and Mrs. Rod Campbell Sr.]: “Last night a celebration and reception by relatives and old friends was tendered to Mr. and Mrs. Roderick Campbell, S.R., at their home at the corner of Twenty-fifth avenue and Balaclava street, Point Grey, in honor of their golden wedding. It was just fifty years ago yesterday since the honored couple, who are among the best-known of the older residents and pioneers of Vancouver, were married in the Presbyterian Church at Mariposa in old Ontario.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Campbell are Canadian-born of Scottish parents, and both of them were Campbells even before marriage. Mr. Roderick Campbell was born in Glengarry, Ont., in the year 1841. Growing into manhood he left the old home to go into business in the County of Victoria, where he met and married Miss Christina Campbell, the daughter of the late Kenneth Campbell of Mariposa.

The story of the life of Mr. and Mrs. Roderick Campbell is typical of the life of many of the rugged pioneers who left their homes in Bruce and Grey and Glengarry to come out to the Pacific Coast with the opening of the far west country. For five years after their marriage in 1865 they made their home in Fenelon Falls, after which they moved to Woodville where Mr. Campbell embarked in business as a merchant and remained there successfully for fifteen years. In 1885, Mr. Campbell moved his business to Cannington. At this time the new land of British Columbia was being much talked about in the older settlements of Ontario, and in the spring of 1888 Mr. Campbell obeyed the wander fever and came out to the Pacific Coast. He thought so much of the climate and prospects that he returned to Cannington, sold up his business and brought his wife and family of eight children out to Vancouver that same year, arriving here on November 14, 1888.

When Mr. Campbell reached Vancouver his impulse was to embark in business as a retail boot merchant as quickly as possible, but there was not a single vacant store in the city. He had to wait a month for a store to be completed in the Condell Block on Homer street, corner Cordova. He had an uphill fight for years, but as the city grew he came to the front as a leading Hastings street merchant. He retired from business in the years 1900.

During their married life Mr. and Mrs. Roderick Campbell were blessed with a family of four daughters and four sons. The only break in the family ties was in the death of their son Angus, who was the victim of an accident on Cambie Street bridge in 1895.

The seven surviving sons and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Campbell all reside in Vancouver and were present at the golden wedding anniversary of their parents last night. They are Mrs. George McCuaig, Mrs. S. H. [sic: K.] Campbell, Misses Mary and Hattie Campbell, Mr. Rod Campbell Jr., Kenneth Campbell and Ted Campbell.

The best wishes of scores of old friends were expressed last evening by Rev. Dr. McLaren, the first minister of St. Andrew’s Church in this city. Judge Grant also spoke briefly and Mr. Campbell responded. The bagpipes were brought out last evening and amid their music hundreds of congratulations were presented to Mr. and Mrs. Campbell.

“Mr. Rod Campbell sr., one of Vancouver’s oldest and best-known pioneers, died over the week-end. A native of Glengarry, Ont., where he was born ninety-one years ago, he had been a resident of Vancouver for more than forty-four years.

Mr. Campbell and the wife who survives him had a host of friends in Vancouver. December 27 last was the sixty-seventh anniversary of their wedding, but it was quietly celebrated, for Mr. Campbell was then in failing health. He was a steadfast member of the United Church and a member of Western Star Lodge No. 10 of Odd Fellows. The funeral will be held at 1:30 o’clock on Wednesday from Center & Hanna’s with Ref. E.D. McLaren, D.D., a lifelong friend, and Rev. Willard Brewing, D.D., officiating.

Besides his wife, four daughters and two sons survive Mr. Campbell. They are Mrs. S.K. Campbell of Montreal, Mrs. George McCuaig of Vancouver and Misses Mary and Hattie Campbell living at home. The two sons are Ken and Ted. The eldest son, Rod jr., died thirteen years ago. Father and sons were associated some years ago in a shoe business on Hastings street, just west of the old Arcade Building.”

George McCuaig, auctioneer and commission merchant of Vancouver, was born in Scotland, October 24, 1852, a son of Henry and Janet McCuaig. In the year 1857 the family left the land of hills and heather and started for Canada on a sailing ship which was nine weeks on the voyage. The son George was then a lad of but four years, so that practically his entire life has been passed on this side of the water. He was reared in Barrie, Ontario, where he attended the public schools and then entered the dry-goods business in Barrie, remaining there until 1881, when he made his way westward to Winnipeg. Ten years were spent in that city and in the territories and in 1891 he arrived in Vancouver. Through the succeeding three years he managed a dry-goods store for George I. Wilson, and in 1894 left for Africa, where he spent four years. In 1899 he returned to Vancouver, where he established business as an auctioneer and commission merchant, in which line he still continues. He has a well -appointed establishment and so conducts his trade as to gain substantial and well merited returns. His judgment is sound in placing valuations upon any articles which he handles and he has become well known to the purchasing public as one whose stock is extensive and whose business integrity is unassailable.

During the early years of his residence in the west Mr. McCuaig became a member of the local military corps at Medicine Hat during the Riel rebellion of 1885. When its leader, Louis David Riel, was on the scaffold to be hung as a traitor to his country, Mr. McCuaig secured his autograph, which is now in the Carnegie library at Vancouver. On the 23d of August, 1900, in this city, Mr. McCuaig was united in marriage to Miss Sarah Campbell, a daughter of Rod and Christina Campbell, representatives of a Scotch family originally from Glengarry, Ontario. Unto Mr. and Mrs. McCuaig has been born a son, Gordon Campbell. The parents are members of the Presbyterian church. Mr. McCuaig belongs to Mount Hermon Lodge, A. F. & A. M., and to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His political support is given to the liberal party. His interest in public affairs is that of a citizen who seeks the welfare and upbuilding of the community in which he lives and is loyal to its best interests. His life has had its settings in various scenes, as he has lived at different times in Scotland, eastern and western Canada and Africa. Through all he has been actuated by a laudable desire to work his way upward, and his life history shows what may be accomplished when energy and determination point out the way.”

Rod Campbell Jr. Dies Suddenly; Had Been in Hospital for Several Days following an Operation,” Vancouver Province, November 22, 1919, page 1:

“Death came unexpectedly to Mr. Rod. Campbell Jr., this morning after an illness of a few days. The news of the sad event has spread a gloom in the hearts of many people, for there were few men in Vancouver who were better known or more popular than was the deceased.

Mr. Campbell went to the hospital on Tuesday expecting to get out again on Wednesday. An operation on the root of a tooth, however, was more serious than expected. Yesterday his condition became alarming and early this morning he died.

The late Mr. Campbell was born in 1869 in Victoria County, Ont., and came to Vancouver thirty-one years ago with his parents, who are still residents of the city. Mr. Campbell senior entered the retail shoe business and his son was associated with him. Later Rod Campbell jr. went into business with his brother, Kenneth, and then some fifteen years ago became a partner in the firm of Storey & Campbell, with which concern he was actively associated at the time of his death.

He was a good citizen and a very popular man in business and in his social circle. In his younger days he was a prominent figure in amateur athletics, playing lacrosse on the first Vancouver teams. In later years he was a devotee to golf. He was a member of the Terminal City Club, where his death caused the keenest regret.

Mr. Campbell’s death will leave a gap in the business world of this city. Her personal friends are numbered in hundreds, and acquaintances in thousands. He leaves a wife but no children. The funeral arrangements have not as yet been announced.”
