Looking for any information, please, about DORCAS BERNETT (poss Burnett) who was married to REUBEN ("Tailor") BRAE and who died in her 80s around 1977. They lived in Mocho District, New Market PO - not sure if this was a nickname for the area or if there was a name change (as it's not the Mocho in Clarendon). She was a seamstress, and her husband, Reuben, was known as Tailor Brae. He died around 1944 aged in his 80s/90s.

Many thanks in advance

I've since been told that DORCAS had a sister named EDITH (who was married to a Rev Morson). Their Father was named JONATHAN and their Mother named AGATHA (maiden name not known).

Also, that REUBEN had a brother named JONATHAN and that their Father was named DAVID BRAE (wife's name not known - yet!), who lived somewhere called Frazer (sp?). Can't find that location anywhere, but said to be in St Elizabeth.

Hope this is ringing bells with someone! Any help appreciated, please!

Thanks in advance
