My grandfather Robert Emmanuel Gentles who died in 1957 was one of your Grandmother's (Eva) brothers the siblings were
Johnny, Robert E., Joseph, Eva, Martha, Elvie, Sarah, Mary, Esther, Ivor Clifford & Henry -not necessarily in that order
they were the children of Robert E Gentles & Esther Evans (whose tombs are still nearby where we live)
Robert E was the only child of a John Gentles who came from Scotland & an indentured servant - he was born in st Elizabeth but I don't know where & know nothing of his father, John Gentles other than he came to Jamaica with his brother William who settled in Falmoth
