Historical corrections to special edition
On page 40 of the special edition ‘The Free Press Turns 115 Years Old’ I noticed that, once again, Michael Phillipps’s name is spelled incorrectly. For some reason, when Michael and Rowena’s children were registered, the last P in Phillipps was dropped. As he was my husband’s grandfather, I know this as fact.
So please, when you or other writers are referring to Michael Phillipps, spell his name correctly.
Another bit of information that my daughter, who was the family historian, found, was that while Michael and his companions were exploring and prospecting in this area, they came upon some small green lizards at the foot of a snow slide and decided to name the nearby creek and mountain range, Lizard Creek and Lizard Range.
