Hi, Cousin

If you are related to Kitty Winston Collins from Roscommon to Washington, DC married to Thomas Collins, we are family. Kitty was my great aunt. She came to the US in about 1912 and lived with my grandfather (her bro, Tom Winston) and his wife (Lizzie Cunniffe Winston). My aunt Kitty worked as a ticket agent for the RR and married Thomas Collins, whose family had been in the states for a long time.

Aunt Kitty died on my 30th birthday, 23 Oct 1982. About 2 weeks later, her younger son, Tom, died suddenly, leaving a widow Barbara and 5 children. A few years later Barbara died of cancer leaving the children. Her funeral was the last time I saw this section of my family...Kitty's older son, Patrick and his wife Joan and the assorted children. I know that my dad, Tom Winston stayed in contact for at least some time with Tom and Barbara's children. I wrote to Pat and Joan a couple of years ago seeking to regain connection but the correspondence went unanswered. Perhaps I had the wrong address.

I have quite a bit of info about this Winston family. Please contact me at either or 301-656-1684. If Kitty was your grand mama, we are definitely related. It would be terrific to finally reconnect.

Take care and please contact me.

Beth Winston Tordella

PS I am the same age as is Christine Collins.
