William owned a hardware store in Wenonah, Gloucester Co., NJ.

[I remember Myra visiting my parents home, first when I was about 7, and again when I was about 10. She impressed me as "elegant". But most of all I remember her mink neck piece, which was an entire mink, fastened with a gold chain. I was fascinated by the shiny black eyes and wondered if they were real. I also wondered why anyone would want to wrap a dead animal, with head and tail intact, around their neck. My sister, who met Myra and her children, described Myra as "aristocratic, like all the Campbell women", Elizabeth as "beautiful"; and Bill, Jr, as "good looking". -wbt]
