Anna Margreta, daughter of the lawman from Steig, was married to a priest called Suurland. At a young age she became a widow, then she moved up to Kálvalíð to live, and she lived here till a ripe old age. She was know for beeing kind and welcoming to all, wise, gentile and always good to ask for advice. Because of this she was commenly called 'Móðir í Kálvalíð - Mother in Kálvalíð'.
One day she had bought wood to build a table and had it outside, when ash from Iceland came down during the night and a thick layer of ash was on the wood. Of a twelwe foot board they were able to fill a bucket with ash. The folowing year was terrible on the sheep.
One day durin a famine a woman came to see her with her children. She had not eaten for days and would ask if she could spare some bread for her children. Anna Margreta was no beter off herself, but she spoke the words of the wise king David; "Young I was, old I am, but never did I see a just and fair man left in need, nor for his children to beg for their bread." So the old woman gave the last of her bread to the children and their mother. The same day a grind came in to Miðvág.
