[Other] [St. Lucia] Lewis, Swanston families

I am looking for information on Alfred Ernest Lewis, born 4 Apr 1860, Castries, St. Lucia and his wife, the former Margaret Ann Swanston, born 13 Jun 1874 Castries, St. Lucia. They had 13 children, including my grandmother, Ina Emily Lewis Applewhaite. These children were born in St. Lucia, and St. Vincent. Some of them emigrated to the USA, including Kathleen Lewis, born about 1906, in St. Lucia.
Family legend has it that they were en route to South America to live when World War 1 broke out and they were essentially stranded in Barbados. How true, I do not know!
I do have Lewis cousins in Guyana and Trinidad, and other places for all I know. We seem to have been a prolific clan and large families appear to be common. So any Lewises out there, let's compare notes and see if and how we may be related! Ditto the Swanstons.
