In Response To: Re: [CARIB] carty of st kitts basseterre genealogy ()
Im happy to know Mrs Ronnie that you have Carty's on your paternal side. With some patients and information of names we can begin to unravel our geneolgy. I will start with johnny James Carty. Johnny james Carty was born approximately about 1866 or earliar. Did johnny james Carty originate in St. Kitts? that i do not know, He could have originated in Anquilla. Johnny James Carty had relatives, I will go to my files and find them and give you their names. Johnny james Carty son George Carty had a brother name Cyril Carty whose wife's name was Allison Carty. I meant to say Allison in my first post. Cyril Carty had a son, and a daughter name Elaine. Cyril said that this son was not his, but later on in life i think they established a relationship, for when Cyril died it is said that cyril's son cleaned out his father's Cyrils apartment and gave some rings to a relative. Cyril's sons name i do not know. There were other Carty's, another brother, possisble a half brother, I beleive his name was William he lived in Manhatten New York, at one time and also had a house in asbury park New Jersey and I think he had two daughters. They used to go to the navy or army ship yards and flirt with the men. I think there was a Magaret Carty and a Josephine Carty from St. Kitts. Then there was lysa I think Lysa was Pearl's mother they came to Newyork to visit their Uncle George, I believed they lived in another state. Your Carty's maybe connected but i need more information from you. George carty loved the Queen of England and was loyal to the crown he never did want to become a citizen of North America, but in his old age, that is when he became old, one of his relatives took him to the place to fill out papers to naturalize, I think this must of did him. In some years after that old George passed away, but some say it was the cigarrets he smoked. If any body passed by old George graveyard, do bring some coffee, Old george love Black coffee, Oh, and don't forget the taps, thats the beer and some bacalahau and fungi, Oh yes, rice and peas, and some roti, and some conversation about the islands. The men used to sit around with that rum and talk island politics. Thank you, for dropping by Mrs Ronnie and do drop by again and may God Bless. Our family stories keep our geneology alive. Everywhere i go there is always something to remind me of another place in time.
