WEBBE - St. Vincent

Hello. I am searching for information on my grandfather, Robert St. Clare Stanley WEBBE.

On his enlistment record for the Spanish American War, he lists 1875 as his birth date in Kingstown, West Indies. Several years later he was given US citizenship, and relinquished British citizenship. Because he later gave different places and years of birth, it is proving difficult to trace him.

Moreover, although he listed "white" as his race on all documents, my DNA shows 9% West African, and my father's showed 17%, so presumably one or more of Robert's grandparents came from Africa.

Any assistance on WEBBE history in St. Vincent would be most appreciated.
