    Notes 
    • William Henry was born in St. Ann, Jamaica. Only 6 of the 11 children survived to adulthood. Both of his parents died when he was 16. He raised his siblings along with his older sister, Thelma. I believe they were horse people but they either sold or lost the farm and stables. I know that 2 brother migrated from England or Scotland. One brother settled in St. Ann and the other in Kingston.

      William Henry was my father. He was born in St. Ann, Jamaica. Only 6 of the 11 children survived to adulthood. Both of his parents died when he was 16. He raised his siblings along with his older sister, Thelma. I believe they were horse people but they either sold or lost the farm and stables. I am not sure which. I do not have any information about my grandparents. I know that 2 brother migrated from England or Scotland. Not sure which country. One brother settled in St. Ann and the other in Kingston. I am curious about where you got the photograph. I thought we had the only copy. I will get my father's birth certificate from my mother to verify information. She is 94 years old.
