I'm looking for a relative of mine who lived in Port of Spain, Trinidad from about 1890 till he died. His name was Bernt Andersen Østerlie or Austlid, born in 1856 in Gausdal, Norway.
His parents was named Mr. Anders Eriksen Østerlie (1812 - 1889) and Mrs. Ingeborg Andersdatter Østerlie (1824 - 1913).
He was my grandmothers uncle and tried to live from gardening and drawing of portraits in Port of Spain. As he says in a letter to his mother, dated 28th of may 1898: “I have bought 3 acers of land near Port of Spain”.
In 1903 his address is: No 7. Charlotte St., Port-of-Spain, and in 1912 his address is Rose Hill, Port of Spain.
The last letter to his family in Norway is dated 1913, and we don’t know what happened to him or when I died.
Is it possible for me to look in the censuses from Trinidad to find out when he died?
Or can I humbly ask You for Your help in this case?
I’m looking forward to Your answer!
Mr. Ole Hermod Henriksen
