Re: Barbados - GRIFFITH / ROCK
In Response To: Re: Barbados - GRIFFITH / ROCK ()
My great grandfather was from Scotland. His name was James Newsom Griffith. He migrated to Barbados sometime around the early nineteen hundreds. He is my grandmother's father. My grand mother was a Rock. The Rock family in Saint Lucy are related to me. My grand mother's brother lived and died in NY. His name was Eglerton Griffith, or often called "Uncle Butley." I am not sure what year uncle Butley came to NY. From what I understand he had two sons who both predecease him.
Apparently my grand mother carried her mother's sir name, Rock (last name) whilst her brother, my great uncle, carried his father's sir name, Griffith.
