"Here is a picture of Clark and Melissa (Malissa). It was taken in 1919 in Jonesville [Hillsdale Co, Michigan]. The album was sent to my grandfather Clare Campbell who came to Saskatchewan with the Teets. He and Grandma were going together, so to speak. They met in 1908 when Clare came up with his Grandpa Double. He had met Amy the year before. She was in Hillsdale [Michigan] to look after her mother Maryett [(Benson) Butts], who was sick and then passed away. They were engaged in 1916 and married in 1922.
In the picture is Left to Right: Aunt Alma Gaynor, Grandma Cynthia Double, Uncle [Samuel] Clark Benson, Uncle John (Tidy) Gaynor. Melissa (Todd) Benson on the far right. The two children are Ruth and Tom Campbell, Grandpa Clare's brother and sister."
