Seeking any information on the my husband's great grandfather, William Alfred Adams, born 30 Sep 1866 in the British West Indies of parents born in the British West Indies. Not sure which island because he only reported the birthplaces as the British West Indies. He died in Brooklyn NY on Sep 27 1944.

The family story is that he went to Turk's Island from Bermuda prior to immigrating to NYC about 1885-1888. He married Ellen Louise HUMBERT about 1896 in Brooklyn, NY and had one child, William Humbert Adams, b. 1897 in Brooklyn NY.

In 1911, two sisters, Ophelia and Lillian visited him. The ship's manifest said they were from Turks Island. The sisters, who never married, were in Bermuda in the 1950s, Seeking any information on parents or other siblings.

Would appreciate any help.
