Aug 1931 a Professor Charles P. Smyth from PA,
left 6 mile cabin on the Lakelse Rd. and took 3 hours to climb
Thornhill Mtn. to visit Fred Michaud.
He had a view of the Skeena as far as tidewater,
and half way to Hazelton.
He also could see the top reaches of Kitimat Arm,
having a view of over 30 miles from Kitamaat village.

April 1931 Forestry was building 2 more
lookouts in the District.
am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives,
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it
I do not charge for access to my pages,

That is the honest and proper way to do it!
