S: King/Campbell Family Memory Book

FC: A Family Memory Book of the King/Campbell Families

1: August 13, 2011 Dear Lauren & Tim, Congratulations and best wishes on this life-long journey you begin today! As you start your married life together you will establish traditions around family, holidays, celebrations, and even day to day living. Some of these traditions will be ones that you create, while others will have been handed down from both your families. On Judy's, Campbell side of the family the "Aunties", them my mother were refered to as the "family historians". Now that they are gone the mantle has fallen to me. While looking forward in life is alwasy more exciting and productive, it is interesting to see where we've come from. In your field, Laruen, there has long been a debate over "nature" vs. "nurture". Where has the "nature" of our ancestors influenced us? In both the King and Campbell families there has been an importance placed on community service from the King family assisting runaway slaves in the underground railway to Clifford Campbell's service in the Rhode Island senate. While many view their family 'trees' on paper, few have a beautiful - lovinly preserved - house built by their great(X4) grandfather in 1793 still in exisitence As you become a family I hope you will enjoy looking back at one part of Lauren's family history and adding more from both sides of your families! Much love, Debbie

The Aunties were the "maiden"sisters of Effie Campbell, Charles and Eleanor's mother, Lauren's Grest Grandmother. They were the sweetest, dearest little ladies you can imagine. They were wonderful cooks and were also responsible for chronicling the family histories. The Aunties spent Christmas' in Darien with Charlie's family. Prior to their trip they baked lots of goodies to take with them on the train. These same holiday treats were sent in a big box to my family in California.
