I work for a newspaper in central Colorado and am doing an article on a rather colorful gentleman, Frank E. Gimlett, who used to live in the islands many years ago. I understand two of his grandsons David Myron Gimlett and James Irwin Gimlett ended up in Washington. It looks like David died in December, but that James or a relative may still live in the  Friday  Harbor area. If so, I'd very much like to get in touch with them and see if they have any family stories I could incorporate into the story. There are a lot of rumors about Frank, who had sense of humor and told lots of tales to go with a mountain man persona he developed, but I'd like to set the record straight if I can. I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you,
