GRIFFITH, Oscar Othneil - Barbados

My husband Jim's family comes from Barbados. His father was Oscar Othneil Griffith, b. 1904 d.1968. He came to Canada in the early 1930s by way of Nova Scotia. He worked in the mines before moving to Toronto. He met and married Jim's mother, Maude Teresa Dorsey (nee Tully)

During the mid to late 1940s, Jim had three cousins come to stay with his family (from Barbados) at various times to attend nursing school. Eleanor was the oldest, Jim thinks she was probably in her early thirties at the time. Ena would have been in her mid to late twenties and Ruby would have been in her early to mid twenties.

He remembers that Ena moved to Ottawa after she stayed with them.

Any help to expand our knowledge of this side of his family would be greatly appreciated.
