I can't find Anna/Annie Collins at all.

The only one I can see is the one mentioned before, Honor/Honour Collins - parents Pat and Honour Gaughan although she was born 1872.
They would be related to or part of the Collins family, Cloontakilla. Does that ring any bells?

At first I thought you were in US but then with your dad being brought back, that perhaps you were in Mayo and might know of some connection with Cloontakilla.

Here is the Ellis Island site

You need to register - it's free and then look at Passenger Search.

It is a bit fiddly - it used to be easier. They sailed on the Cedric March 1905

I am just looking at the manifest with Annie on. She says America for Nationality and in reply to have you been here before and where - Philadelphia.
The cousin is John Gaughan 5052 Summer Street ( I think ) Philadelphia and I am sure that is the same for Patrick.

I did look but couldn't find a John G in Philadelphia who we could be certain of.

I know I keep going to Patrick and Honor Collins with daughter Honor/Honor. There are death on Irish genealogy for both these names but they are before the death certificates are shown. If all this  were correct, Honor would be orphaned as a very young child.

However, she is a different age - b 1872 I think and she does show Ireland in the US census.  :-\

Yes she is there - if you search by name, year and ship you should get her. Even without the ship, she shows as Bangor as last residence.
