I cannot offer you help in your family, but as for the Campbell possibilities I have posted elsewhere here about my ancestry. The McColl area is normally counted as Appin in Argyll, but my family were generations just south of there in Lorne, on Campbell lands. There is a story that the McColl witnesses on the prosecution side of the Appin Murder trial (see 'Kidnapped' for one version of that story) were sent to coventry by their neighbours, and they flitted south to join their cousins. Campbell of Melfort raised a company for the government in the '45, and it had McColls although they did not see the exciting action near Inverness in April 1746!
