*The exact date of Campbell's allotment to the Fifth Circuit, presumably pursuant to a presidential order, is unknown. The first documented Supreme Court order allotting him is dated December 13, 1853. The minutes of the U.S. Circuit Court for the Southern District of Alabama in Mobile, however, indicate that Campbell began his service on the circuit courts on April 11, 1853, so that date is used here.
