Stella Tress, wife and cousin of Sidney C. Tress

Stella Tress married her cousin, Sidney Cooper Tress, they did not have any children. After the end of WW2  my mother, Alice Maude Reid, nee Tress, wrote to the relevant authorities in London to see if she could help any of her Tress relatives in England. There were food shortages amongst other things in England at that time. Her letter was referred to Mrs.Stella Tress they corresponded and my mother sent various items for awhile. When the letters stopped coming we finally received a letter to say Mrs. Tress had died. I still have Stella’s letters. It was many years later that I found exactly how we were related.
