We are seeking any knowledge on the following names. My grandfather Edwin Clawson Greaves, b Feb 11 1878 Harrison, Barbados. His mother - Rebecca Jane Thornhill. Father John Francis Greaves. Grandfather Shermont Greaves. Edwin married in England and settled in Canada 1907. The Canadian family is seeking information on Carribean family. Our Source information comes from: Caribbean and Canadian Burial, Baptism and Marriage records, family bible, stories and documents.

Shermont Greaves, Mason, born about 1830 (maybe Barbados or Scotland, UK)

Son - John Francis Greaves, baptism Saint Michael, Barbados, 5 Oct 1861, mother Susanna Greaves

John Francis Greaves (Seaman) married Dec 19, 1878 to Rebecca Jane Thornhill (Huckster) residence Shermans Bay (from marriage certificate)

Rebecca Jane Thornhill Greaves burial Aug 6, 1905, Westbury Cemetery, St Michael Parish, Barbados. Residence, Healis Village, place of birth St Peter

The last letter we have from Rebecca to my grandmother is dated July 28 1905 from Healis Village, Halls Road, Barbados. She mentions Lew and Ottillee in this letter. This may be a sister and aunt to Edwin Greaves. Thank you in advance for any information.
