Carl Bennetts from California <ul><li>Memories of Market Lake Volume II, by William Stibal Pettite (out of print) </li></ul><ul><li>I don't know whether you are old enough to have seen Edwin Hawley's ranch house at Clyde.  My grandmother (Edwin's step-daughter) said it was the first 2 story building in the valley.  My family took her up there for a nostalgic visit in the summer of 1951, when the building was being prepared for demolition.  Grandmother had watched the workmen hand-lathe the newel post about 1888, so we asked to have it shipped to us in California.  My cousin still has it. </li></ul>
