  • Notes 
    • “Forrest Campbell was born in Webb County, Texas. When he was a young man the family moved to Plainview, Texas, where they lived in a sod-house, being one of the first four families to settle there. The family later lived in Colorado City and in Webb County, moving to Houston to further the children’s education.

      “Forrest worked his way through high school by selling newspapers and then got his degree in law a the University of Texas. He was interested in football and played on the high school and University teams.

      “After receiving his degree in 1907, he came to San Antonio, Texas, where he was married to Anna Bozena Meerscheidt. After fifty-three years of law practice, Forrest retired. He passed away on September 26, 1965.” [11]
