Wm. Latimer was a godfather for Walter Smothergill, my grandfather's brother, at St. John's Anglican Church, Christiansted on May 9, 1897. He also was a judge at the Easter Monday races on St. Croix in 1904.
The Smothergills were from County Cavan, Ireland. Do you know whether Wm. Latimer also might have been from there? About a dozen men have been identified who went to the Danish West Indies from County Cavan. I'll put the URL for a web site about this at the end.
