[BAHAMAS] williams in bahamas and barbados
Hello my name is Robin, I have been looking off and on for any information on my grandfather's family.His father's name was John Williams. He was from Barbados and came to the Bahamas and married my great grand-mother. I don't know her last name and forget the first. They were married under the prime minister at the time. The time is estimated around 1910 to 1913. they were granted permission to travel to the states. when she was traveling she was pregnant with my grandfather. My grandfather was born Tommy Williams Jan 1. 1914. I believe they came through Florida. They lived in Cordell GA. They had another son John Williams he was born 1916. My Grandfather ran away from home to Florida. he had no further contact with his family. I know his mother died before he left home. He left in about 1923.
I found some information on the name John Williams. Not sure if this is connected but I believe so. There was a listing that said a John Williams came from Europe to Barbados and had a son named John Williams. He had a son named John williams. They traveled to the Bahamas, that is all the information I could fine.any information is appreciated.
