Stories:
She cared for John and Isabella Sinclair of Fasgaidh for many years. The Sinclair's were Chatty's second cousins 1 generation removed. (Chatty's paternal grandfather Duncan Campbell was the brother of Isabella's paternal grandmother Isabella Campbell - both children of John Campbell and Sarah (Marrion) Morrison.

At the time of Isabella's death in 1964 Chatty inherited Fasgaidh. Chatty told EWL2 that the house was too big for her so she sold it.

Chatty met EWL's grandparents in 1926 and his mother in 1930. Ted visited with her himself in '82 and in '85.
