Matthews Spanish town Jamaica

Postby nwnudge » Fri Mar 18, 2011 11:27 pm

My Great grandfathers name was Roland Theophilus Matthews. I believe my Gr.grandmother was named Irene. My grandmother Hazel Maria Matthews was born in 1900 March 22nd in Spanish Town ,Jamaica . she was orphaned at around age nine.
Her mother fell off a gangplank boarding a ship .I know she had a cousin Named Ivan Matthews whose father was a headmaster at a school. My Grandmother's last known address in Jamaica was in Franklin Town .
The ship's manifest (that brought her to the U.S.) said she was British African. My grandmother also said her grandmother could read Hebrew . My grandmother hinted at having forebears from India, but she may have said that so people wouldn't discriminate against her .
She married Andrew George Wightman from St Andrews Parish . Any information would be helpful.
