Gone to the USA, 1949 – Sarah Teresa Mitchell

During the week Miss Sarah Teresa Mitchell, daughter of Mr. Thomas Mitchell and Mrs. Mitchell of Cloondahamper, Barnaderg, went to Boston, USA, to live with her uncle Mr. Thomas Collins of Rudolph, Boston. She is a niece of the late Mr. Michael Mitchell, one of the largest mineral water manufacturers and other concerns in New Orleans, who died quite recently and was regarded as a man of  immense wealth. We wish her every good fortune, as she is a well-mannered and well-educated young lady. 1
