His name was Edvard William Jon. SAnmd his familiy was very big , 21 children, so he had to leave St helena i youing age.
He went whalehunting and ended up i Norway.

Me Grandfather was also related to a family Osborne.

Have you been in St Helena? It would be fun to go there.

I am now 55 years old and just started to find out something about our family on St. Helena. Have you searched for a long time?

Best regards

Frank Jon
