Museum the New Llano Colony

Margaret Brough



Pre-Colony History:  

Family Information: Daughter of Frank Brough, sister of Bill Brough.  

Job in Colony: In April 1934 Chet Page took over in the hotel and announced that his breakfast cooks were Mrs. Maki, her daughters Myrtle and Irene, and Margaret Brough.

Later that year it appears that her main job was in the print shop; but also in June she volunteered to help out in the Oil and Mineral office by addressing post cards and was among a group of high school girls including Iris Busick, Rhea Mae Baldwin, Nona Crotts, Vivian Crossland, Erma Hayes, Afton Lewis, Irene and Myrtle Maki, Crystal Schutz, Jeannette Woolley and May Gossett who reported to the orchard to help with berry picking.

In 1935, she was taking care of the trade at the Coffee Shop located in the Industrial Building (this building also contained the Vernon Cash Store, the machine shop, garage and tin shop.)  

Home in Colony:  

Other Info: In April 1934 a lovely gathering was held at the home of Frank Brough, another New Englander, to "God-speed" the Fay family to Norfolk, Connecticut where they hoped to arrange their affairs over the next few months and return to the colony in the fall.

Attendees enjoyed music, games and a wonderful lunch. They included: Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Archer, Drs. Robert K. and Cecil C. Williams, Mr. and Mrs. George Matz, Mrs. Maki, Smith Sanford, DeForest Sanford, George Leevey, Wm. Bingham, Dennis Stanley, Forest R. Waters, Mary Emery and the Brough family, consisting of Margaret, William and Frank.
