WOOD-Antigua,English Harbor

Postby crobinson » Sun Feb 03, 2008 2:33 am

My name is Connie, and I am looking for information related to my GG Grandfather Frederick Wm Wood.

My G Grandmother Annie Maria Amelia Wood was born 6/9/1869 in Antigua. Her Birth Certificate was from "Births in the Parish of St. Paul, in the Island of Antigua.

Listed on Annies Birth Certificate, Frederick was a Watchmaker at that time in English Harbor. Annies mother was Sophia Maria Wood, formerly Laidley.

Annie's Obit stated she came to NL CT with her parents approximately 75 yrs prior to her death. I believe that would have been around 1885. Annie told me she came to NL on a big Clipper Ship.

Her mother Sophia died in NL in 1888, just one month after Annie married George T Benham.

Sophia's death certificate lists her as a widow at the time of her death. I have not been able to find where she is buried. It also gives Sophia's parents as James & Maria Laidley...English.

Also according to Sophia's death certificate, she was also born in Antigua.

Been searching for this info for many years with no luck.
