Looking for relatives of Eileen Southerland (1912-1947), married to Cyril Volney (1910-1965) in Castries, St. Lucia. Eileen's mother was reportedly an O'Reilly, a sister of Sir Lennox O'Reilly (later in Trinidad) and Sir Guy O'Reilly.

Hello Charmaine. My name is Kingsley and I live in Antigua.

I am trying to get as much information as I can on the O'Reilly family of St. Lucia and Trinidad. Their father, Samuel Arthur Francis O'Reilly went from Antigua to St. Lucia as a Mico teacher at Laborie. They were cousins to my grandfather Walter O'Reilly. I have been trying to connect the dots for years, but still have some blanks. I discovered a couple of years ago that Samuel O'Reilly had a daughter and a son that I have found little on--Evadne who married a Southerland and Robert who went to Trinidad after his father's death and seems to have vanished into thin air.

I am glad to see your post and would like to get any information you may be in a position to give.

I would be happy to make contact with you.
