The Indianapolis News Friday Evening March 22, 1878, there is a death entry on the front page for Anna Lee, also shown as Mrs. Henry Lee, Mother of Mrs. John Kidd, from South Shields England. Rev. A. Bradley was the officiating minister.
Annie lost her husband and parents all within 3 years. Her illness had her reach out to her family. She travelled from England going first to her brother's, Joseph Logan Thompson's in Toronto and then on to her daughter Mary Caroline Carrie lee Kidd's home in Indiana, where she died. It might be thought as suggested by "Westoe", that Annie might likely have continued on to New Zealand to see her daughter Harriett Alice Lee Kidd and her family there.
