FRANCIS - St. Kitts to DomRep, San Pedro (Pedra)

Hi,

I was recently told by a Santo Dominion that in the area of San Pedro (Pedra) is where a lot of people who came from St. Kitts had settled. I was told by my grandmother that her brother Leon Francis went here to settle probably in the 50's. Any information on this Kittian community will be greatly appreciated.

Yes this is true. San Pedro De Macoris is where hundreds maybe even thousands of Kittians came to work the Sugar Cane fields in the late 1800's. I know this message is 4 years old so hopefully you've filled in the blanks since then.
