Hello! I'm looking for some information on my great-great grandparents, John Henry Thomas Challenger and Susannah Jane Barnes. John was from Little Estridge, and Susannah from Saddler's (aka Sadler's), according to their marriage certificate.

I think they were both born around the late 1830s-mid 1840s. John was a widow by the time he married Susannah in 1882. I think he had children from his previous marriage but I don't know their names.

I think that Susannah's mother may have been named Dororthy Cairnes. Susannah and a few of her children emigrated to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, but John didn't come with her.

I believe he may have died in St. Kitts. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
