Clark Calhoun Campbell was born in 1824 in Georgia, the son of John Wesley Campbell and Ann Williamson Clark. He moved with his family to Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, before 1840. He was married to Lucy C. Goree on 3 August 1847 in Perry County, Alabama. She was the daughter of James Lyles Goree and Martha Rabb. In 1850, the couple was enumerated in De Soto Parish, Louisiana, and his occupation was given as physician. His father died in Louisiana, and his family and widowed mother migrated to Montgomery County, Texas, in about 1856. By 1858, he owned 420 acres in the Joseph Lindley headright, 24 slaves, and twelve horses. In 1860, a resident of the town of Danville, C. Campbell's occupation was entered as farmer, and he had a total wealth of $22,000. Presumably having lost their wealth in the aftermath of the Civil War, Clark and Lucy Campbell moved their family to Galveston before 1870. There, Clark was affiliated with the Sisters of Charity Hospital as a physician. He was appointed to the Galveston Board of Health, and in 1878 was reported by the Galveston Daily News to be the secretary of the board, a man "who brought to the position the knowledge and practical facility acquired in a long professional experience in many years of faithful service. . . ." Lucy died on 18 January 1907, and Dr. Campbell died on 27 July 1907, at the age of 82, at the home of his daughter in Tarrant County.
