Sarah Campbell, wife of Alfred Campbell is named as an heir of Mrs. Elizabeth "Rives" (widow of Archibald Reaves Sr.) in an 1845 bond in which they promised to deed their portion of their land to Alexander S. Reaves upon the death of Elizabeth Reaves.

Fannie, Kate, and the younger Thomas appear with them in 1860. It's possible some of these are grandchildren or adopted.

Alfred Campbell is buried in the Old Flat Creek Cemetery, Shelbyville, Bedford County, Tennessee. Sarah probably is as well, unmarked.
