Harry Dickinson (1863-1935) had a cousin named Caroline (Dickinson) Hill who had a daughter named Annie Hill. Annie married William "Billy" Croft. In adulthood, Harry's children traveled to England on at least one occasion and visited with them. The Crofts likewise visited the Dickinsons in New Jersey. The following Christmas card was sent by Annie to her 2nd Cousins, Rose and John Dickinson, probably in the 1950s or 1960s. The photos below, dated 1973, of Billy & Annie Croft at their home in Dewsbury must have been sent to John later, after his sister Rose died. Rose Dickinson died in 1971 and John Dickinson died in 1989. Annie Croft died in 1997 at the age of 100. Thanks to Marge Quick for preserving and sharing this connection to our English relatives. (Annie was Marge's 2nd cousin 1x removed).
