Hi, I am looking for information about my grandfather, Samuel David Gumbs. My mother said her aunt Jane, his older sister told her that they immigrated to the Dominican Republic from Anguilla in the early 1900s when he was still a boy along with another sister her name was either Laura or Lara Hodge and a brother named James. Their mother's name was Mary Margaret Rogers from Stony Ground, Anguilla.

My mother lives in the United states for 50 years now, she is 83 and I wish to give the gift of at least her father's history before she passes. He died in the Dominican Republic in 1952 when she was 20, pregnant and couldn't get to the hospital before he was buried with his belongings, something that haunts her to this day. Hope someone can help.
