Charles Howard Campbell (6 Jan 1854 - 27 Nov 1904)

 I've been working on the children of Ephraim Sheppard (1801-1848), only child of Isaac Sheppard and Jane Harris. I found many articles regarding his son Isaac Applin Sheppard (1827-1898) as his great-grandson was a well published genealogist.

I just came across this article on www.genealogybank.com concerning Isaac's nephew, my 4th cousin 4x removed, Charles Howard Campbell, son of Mary Jane Sheppard and Charles Campbell.

 

Taken Fatally All While Entertaining. Charles Campbell Was Talking with His Guests When Seized with Uraemic Convulsions
Date: 1904-11-29; Paper: Philadelphia Inquirer

While entertaining severan friends in his apartments at the Bartram apartments on Saturday evening, Charles Campbell, 50 years old, assistant superintendent of the John Hancock Life Insurance ompany, was seized with uraemic convulsions and died within a few moments. Although one of the guests was a physician and another doctor was also immediately summoned, all efforts to reive him failed.

During the evening Mr. Campbell, with his wife, had entertained Dr. John L. Wanamaker, of 1511 Mt. Vernon Street, and a young woman friend of the physician. It was while talking to them that he became ill. Dr. T. M. Barr who was the physician summoned, said last night that Mr. Campbell had been suffering from kidney trouble for some time.
