My grandfather, Errold Jeffrey, left Barbuda with his wife, Mary Irene (maiden name Nedd) in the early 1900's. They settled in New York City and had six children - the fifth being my father, Delford (who is still alive and well at age 74).

My grandfather had a sister by the name of Gladys, who married a James Harris. Grandpa Errold also had brothers by the names of Udell, Freddy and Charles - all of whom came up to New York from Barbuda.

My dad talks about his cousins from his Aunt Gladys - Jenny (who married a Nathan Symes), Walton, Roy, Alverd and Sylvia - with whom he grew up in New York. But my dad has a hard time remembering names of people going back the other way on the family tree, back in Barbuda.

Also, I'd like to mention my grandmother's people, the Nedd's. My grandmother, Mary (aka Irene), had two brothers - Alfred Nedd and Ubert Nedd - that also settled in New York.

Can anyone make a connection to my grandfather or my grandmother?

Please keep in touch.
