Mary Rosamond Litzelman 1921 - 2008 
Last resident of Campbellvile passes. Mary Rosamond Litzelman, age 87, wife of LaRue Litzelman, passed away peacefully on Saturday morning, Oct. 11, 2008, at her home in Forks Township. Her husband, LaRue Litzelman ,resides at 1907 Campbellville Road, New Albany, PA.  
Mary and her husband, LaRue, were very involved in timbering and operating a small sawmill their whole lives. Mary could repair most of the equipment and also operated the dozer as well as any professional logger. Following are a few excerpts from an interview with Mrs. Litzelman in 1978.  
"I came to this area fifty-seven years ago after the mill was washed away by the flood. But it was before the covered bridge was removed and replaced with an iron bridge." 
"This house here is over 200 hundred years old and the first house to be built ever in the area." 
"Once many years ago when I was fishing down by where the old mill was, I saw something round sticking out of the creek bed. Later I went back and dug around it a bit and found it was the grinding wheel from the old mill."
