Fifteen years ago they came to Hutchinson and have lived at the home on Tenth west ever since.  Mrs. Campbell had been a faithful Christian for more than fifty years, being a member of the United Brethren church.

Just last Saturday, Christmas day, Mr. and Mrs. Campbell celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary.  There were gathered at their home, the four living sons, twenty grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.  The four sons are J. H, J. C., J. L. and Will, all of whom live in or near Hutchinson.
