Judy Paterson. My father's name is James " Jim" Paterson born 1897,His sister's name is Eleanora "Yoelin". He migrated to Trinidad around 1920.
He is the son of Rosanne " Diedre" Sylvester. Paternal Mother's maiden name is Sylvester. Her brothers are Sealy, Lenny & Jonathan.I believe they were born in Hermitage. My father has relatives in Carriacou.

My mother Ivy's maiden name is John. She was born around 1902 -1903 in Hermitage. Her siblings are Lorena, Bryon, Percy, Jenieve, Lyn, Edna & Perry. First cousins to Agnes, Eugene, Lyris John etc. They all migrated with their Mother when they were very young to Trinidad between late 1900 - early 1920.

Lots of John relatives in Mt Rose, St Patricks.
