John Edgar and Hilda Vern, the two eldest children of Emlin Verne and Laura (Squires) Campbell, pose for a formal portrait around 1906. Hilda, born on September 13, 1904, had a variant of her father’s name as her middle name. The name Verne was also perpetuated with their fifth child, Emlin Verne, Jr., and extended to the third generation with Hilda’s daughter Carol Verne Havighurst (known as “Jeanie,” married Tompkins), Katheryn’s son David Verne Leonard, and Emlin Verne, Jr.’s son Paul Verne Campbell. In the fourth generation, Richard C. Leonard’s middle daughter was known as Sarah Verne, but upon her legal adoption the middle name was changed to Kristina.
