General Meeting June 6, 2016

Our speakers were Linda Taaffe and her niece, Erika Blair, who shared their family’s story over seven generations beginning with how the Taaffe family members met up with Martin and Mary Murphy, how the families made and lost fortunes, survived fires and recessions, experienced the destruction of the 1906 earthquake, and evolved the family business to make way for an influx of settlers.
