My memory is poor, but I'd swear Jessie's niece was young Carol Murray (who ran off with that awful Teddy Holmes after he swindled poor Jessie), and I thought Lee's wife was Carolyn (and played by Augusta Dabney, if I remember right). By the time Jessie's niece and nephew, Kent and Carol were written into the story, poor Emily Maclaughlin was aging poorly, and rather than simply going with it and giving her age-appropriate story, they brought in the niece and nephew to make her character more "with it", and I don't think Kent and Carol were around all that long, so it was a bad decision. What they did with Jessie's character later on was scandalous in my eyes. While John Beradino fared better, I think Emily and her contribution to soaps have been largely forgotten. Awesome, thanks! I know Mark Hamill was Kent and Anne Wyndham was Carol, opposite James Westmoreland's (aka Rad Fulton) naughty Teddy Holmes.
