Cavert, Mary Beth. “Margaret Leask”. The Shining Scroll (2010): 11-13. Print.
When L.M. Montgomery settled in Leaskdale in early October of 1911 as Mrs. Ewan Macdonald, many families in her husband’s congregation, especially the younger members, welcomed her. Maud soon became acquainted with the residents of Leaskdale, especially the founding family of George Leask who lived across the road, west, from the Manse. George Leask’s son George, Jr. and his wife Margaret lived on the farm during the years the Macdonald’s were in Leaskdale. Another son, Alexander Leask, and his wife, Elizabeth Helen Morrison, lived on the farm beside the Leaskdale Church, up the hill. Mrs. Alec Leask and her daughter, Margaret, were long-time friends of Maud Macdonald., Source type: Print(0)
