  1. Hi: My name is Deborah Lee Winsor. My father was Daniel Loring Winsor (1923-2011), my grandfather, Daniel Loring Winsor, Sr. Owned and ran the Winsor Inn in Duxbury, Ma until my step-grandmother Marie sold it before his death and moved to Deerfield Beach, Florida. I have a few Winsor family heirlooms, one I think you might like a picture of. I’m unwilling to donate it at this time, but if you would like a picture, I’d be happy to send one. It is a sampler she did at age nine. At the bottom she has crocheted her name; Georgiana L Winsor Age Nine, April 19, 1839.
    Let me know if you would like a picture. It is framed.

      • I am the person who donated most of the Georgiana Winsor memorabilia and the folder of the Nathaniel Winsor Jr. family with his portrait on the cover. Thank you for forwarding Deborah’s letter to me. I would be very interested in having a copy of the photo she is offering to the collection.
        Is it possible to ask her to contact me by e-mail, as I would like to ask her some family questions?
