When the MacDonald children were growing up on East Greenwich Avenue in the 1950s and 1960s, Mrs. Jeannie Campbell was the owner of the house next door. This house is today called the historic Clapp house. “Aunt” Jeannie lived there with her two surviving sons as her husband and oldest son had died. Also, her sister, Diana Wicks, came to live with her when Diana’s husband had died. Audrey Mae often said “Aunt Jeannie” –no relation, an affectionate term only–“was just like another mother to me. Aunt Jeannie was an angel in disguise. She took care of everybody.” Below is the information that Audrey Mae had in her possessions about the history of the “old Clapp house” and about the Clapp family, the original owners of the house.
