Campbellites were an evangelical spin-off from the Irish Anglican church, followers of a clergyman named (surprise) Campbell in the 1830s, I believe. Arriving in the U.S., their moderate component became a major progenitor of the denomination now known as the Disciples of Christ, whose "mother" church is in Paris, KY, I think; while the more fundamentalist Campbellites later became the Church of Christ.
I have not done much with my Kenan ancestry as yet.
