McCombs: Free to Roam

As Margaret McCombs great neice, I would like to thank SitNews
for printing the article regarding Margaret McCombs. Through
the article written by Louise B. Harrington, I was able to gain
greater insight into a great part of my family history.
I am Margaret's great neice---her
sister was my great grandmother, Cynthia Wakefield, and my father
is Edward Lemke, who is Margaret's nephew (I hope I have all
of that right). Although I cannot be there to share in the joy
of her 100th birthday, I still would like to send her my love
and extend my contact information to Marion and Yvonna, as I
am afraid we have lost contact over the years.

Margaret Griffin McCombs: "Free
to Roam" A Feature
Story By LOUISE BRINCK HARRINGTON - "In my memory I've been
revisiting the old family homestead which was located two miles
from the village of Kasaan," Margaret Griffin McCombs wrote
in her 1989 memoirs. "A footpath through stands of timber
followed the beach leading to the 'ranch.' Someone had built
a one-room log cabin on this site, and then abandoned it. So
the Griffin family moved in and tried to eke out a living"
