TASKER - Carrington Village, Barbados

Hello,
I am searching for any information that documents the family of Francis Edward Tasker born in Georgetown, British Guiana on 22 July 1891. Francis's parents were Barbados-born according to the U.S. 1920 & 1930 censuses and his naturalization documents. I am assuming his parents may have gone from Barbados to British Guiana to work. Francis immigrated to the U.S. in 1913 and his last known residence was listed as Carrington Village. His closest friend in Barbados was named as "A. Thomas" on Roebuck Street.

He held several jobs before becoming a Seaman during the years 1942 to 1957. He was married at least three times to Louise, Beatrice C. (?) and Lydia Hicks. He died in 1968 in New York City.

I'd like to confirm his mother as "Mary Frances Mitchell," his father and any of Francis's siblings.
