A couple of years ago I wrote about the island of Zavikon, an island in the St. Lawrence River which may or may not straddle the US/Canada border. Yesterday Richard came by and left a comment and a link to a terrific little video:
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a descendant of the McLeans. Emilie Delphine Robb of New York granted Zavikon to Andrew McLean of Passaic, New Jersey on June 27, 1918. Andrew was a cotton goods manufacturer. He died in March 26, 1931. His property was then divided among his children. On August 22, 1931 they sold Zavikon to Philip A. Castner of Philadelphia. The Great Depression caused the McLeans to end the familyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s business and sell Zavikon!
I’m always pleased when something on this site enables a little connection like this that didn’t exist before.
