WHAT a surprise when I received a copy of a Memory Lane feature from a family member in Kendal, and also from another family member in Hartlepool.
In the That was the week making the news in 1962 feature I saw mention of Kate Sudron moving to Albuquerque in Mexico to become a supervisor of a reformatory (Mail, November 16, 2011).
She did return to New Mexico and lived into her 90s.
She left England with her family – her son, (my father) Ernest, and two daughters, Myra and Mary.
It must have been quite a journey for them.
They came to this country in steerage, landing at Ellis Island.
Thank you for the memory.
