My paternal ancestors came from Barbados. The names are Headley and Johnson from St.Thomas, Elliott and Holder from St.Michael.

My great grandmother maiden name was Headley. She came from St. Thomas in Barbados. Her name was Ellen Christina Headley, who got married to John Johnson in 1858.

Her parents (my great,great grandparents ),were Corydon and Mary Elizabeth Headley. They were married in 1839. Corydon Headley's name was listed as one of the original landowners of the first black freehold village. This village is Rock Hall in St. Thomas.

I am not aware of any family name Marshall but the book where I got the information about the free village called RockHall was written by Woodville Marshall. The name of the book is called "Freedom Is". In the book an elderly woman who lived in Rock Hall name Ada Marshall provided information about the village to the writer.

My aunt who is now deceased name was Florence Matilda Elliott who married a man whose surname was Gooding. He was white.

My grandmother's sister's name was Katurah Johnson nee Hunte, she had 3 children. One of her sons married a Gooding. His name was Goldbourn Hunte and his wife was the sister of my Aunt Florrie's husband. They had 5 children Marjorie. Patricia, Neville, Frank and Gloria.

Hope that my information helps.
