My name is Virginia Campion Ne Smalley
and I wanted to say how delighted i WAS TO FIND SUCH A WONDERFUL SITE with so much about my Aunt O . The wonderful lady was my Godmother as she was my Uncle Chris Swans and my Mother Meriel Swan ne Campion. She was our protector and benefactor . We had no knowledge of your site and found it when trying to locate some of her work. I have one or two wonderful examples of her work and I am tying to find the model village she made. I rememberr it went to a museum but i DO NOT KNOW WHICH. Does any one know where her portrait is hanging I would love to see it.
I remember when she was in her las years of life she taught herself Welsh "To keep my brain active"
Wonderful enjoyed everythng oh and I remember ALFRED WHEN i WAS LITTLE.
