I am trying to build my family tree. Unfortunately I have become interested long after my mother Vera Mello (Holmes (HOLM) married to David Mello in Bermuda in 1931), passed away.
I know my grandfather and grandmother were from SABA
William Godfred Holmes (HOLM) b. 1879
Florence Hassell b 1880
I am unsure of validity of dates but believe them to be close.
They lived in Bermuda until my grandfather died and then were taken back to SABA by their mother. I believe there is still a home on the island.
I also believe that they changed their surname to Holmes from HOLM.
The children were
Eugenie b 1908
William Carl b February 1920
Vera b February 5, 1913 d. 1993
Gibson Godfred (Freddie) b 1914 d. 1972
Mary Evelyn b 1918
Phenis Algernon (Sonny) b 1919
If anyone can help me with information on this quest I would appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you, Christine
