Anita Webb and Aunt Maud December 13, 1911 – March 4, 1996
Cavert, Mary Beth. “Anita Webb And Aunt Maud December 13, 1911 – March 4, 1996”. The Shining Scroll (2011): 17-19. Print.
Anita Maud Webb was born one hundred years ago, the third daughter of Ernest and Myrtle Macneill Webb (their first child, Ina Rosamund, died in infancy in 1906). Anita Maud was named after Maud Montgomery, her mother’s good friend and neighbor for ten years (Myrtle was L.M.’s 3rd cousin). Myrtle had lived on her great-grandfather’s farm, later known as “Green Gables,” since 1894 – first with her mother, Mary Ada Macneill (Simpson) and then with her husband -- it was her home for nearly 50 years. Anita was born a few months after Lucy Maud Montgomery had married and left Prince Edward Island (in July 1911)., Source type: Print(0)
