In Response To: Re: [BARBADOS] Gittens ()

Ship manifest:Samuel pugh, british african black, last place of residence: Najasa Cuba, (note:this samuel pugh that was married to mariam gittens also spoke spanish, for his last place of residence is najasa cuba, so you can deduct that most likely he had a knowledge of spanish), futhermore, according to the ships manifest, samuel had a friend in cuba name manuel lera in najasa, cuba. on, the ships manifest samuel pugh, birth place was St. Marys jamaica, it was Mariam Gittens, ship manifest, that her last place of residence was barbados,(she arrived in new york city on jun 03, 1913)she was then listed as being married. However, on march 15, 1928, in new york city, manhatten she married a Samul pugh who was living in cuba and spoke spanish, according to the 1930 census Samuel Pugh and mariam were living in new york city, Mariam is listed as the spouse(husband) of Samuel Pugh. From this information, you can now begin your research and obtain a 1940 united states census from the national archives and see if in 1940 were there any children in the house and see if those children match the name of the children you listed as the children of mariam pugh, whose maiden name is gittens.(mariam maiden name is gittens)
