About Ann Hills
Referred to by nephew Fred McSwiney as "Aunt Annie" in his letter to his mother, Emily nee Hills:
25 May of 1897, Emily's son Fred wrote from Simla India - just before he left for Bombay and a voyage home on the "India" to England on 25th June 1897. He acknowledges his parents' letters of 6th May and says he is glad they both wrote in 'better' spirits. ..............He further wishes that his mother would bury the past and have his aunt (Annie Hill) - who is lonely and solitary - live with her at Barnoldby le Beck.
Annie would have been 72 at this time.
