Brian Campbell III was more interested in the dirt than he was in the golden painted shovel held by Anna Kathryne Kronenberger during Thursday morning’s ground breaking of Delta Bank’s Natchez branch soon to be on U.S. 61 South. Brian is the great-grandson of the founder of Delta Bank, the late Richard A. Campbell Sr. and his wife Alma Campbell, who came to the event. Four generations of Campbells celebrated the ground breaking Thursday.
