Searching for Information on Caribbean Ancestors
I am looking for help to research my Caribbean ancestors. I have the name of my great grandfather but no date of birth. His name was Thomas Augustus Higgins (born in St Vincent?). I have been told he died in Costa Rica after spending some time in St Lucia and Panama (during the time the Panama canal was being built) before this. He married a lady called Emmaline Lucetta Grant (Emmaline had a brother called John). I've been told that Emmaline was of Carib Indian descent. I believe she died in Panama in 1909, but don't have any record to back this up.
