Ten Pound Baby🍼
Have you ever discovered articles about your family in the old newspapers?
I’ve been thrilled to find as many as I have for our family.
Here’s an interesting one about our uncle who was born in St. Thomas in the 1940s.
A Robust Baby
Today is his birthday.
This “robust baby boy” has grown up and has children and grandchildren of his own.
His father operated the Creque Marine Railway, Community Motors and was a VI Senator during the 1950s. His mother was an incredible seamstress and made all the Carnival costumes for the majorettes in their first parade debut under Mrs. Evy Francois.
For family historians, these kinds of clippings are such exciting finds!
