I just came across this posting, and I realize it was put on the web over 5 years ago...but I hope I might still get a response.
I'm a New Yorker of Barbudan heritage. My grandfather (Erold Jeffrey) had a sister named Gladys. She was married to a James Harris, and they had children - my dad's first cousins - named: Jenny, Walton, Roy, Alverd and Sylvia. Jenny, my dad tells me, was married to a Nathan Symes. Is there any connection of these folks to you?
My grandfather also had brothers, who like Gladys, migrated to New York: Udell, Freddy and Charles.
Also, might you know anything about my grandmother's people? My grandmother, Mary Irene née Nedd, had brothers named Alfred and Ubert, both of whom also settled in New York City many years ago.
I eagerly await a response!
