I am looking for information about Noel Henriquez, who was supposedly born in Curacao on December 25, 1813 to Juan Jose (Josiah) Henriquez and Clemencia Altias. He lived, probably in the 1830s, in St. Thomas, Danish Virgin Islands where he married Emilia Casmajor. Prior to his marriage he lived with his mother in St. Thomas. His wife died soon after they were married and shortly there-after Noel Henriquez went to live in what was then still called Santo Domingo (today the Dominican Republic) where he married Clotilde Carvajal and became the forefather of some of the key politicians, writers, and philosophers of that country.

I need to find information about his ancestry. Who exactly were his parents? Where were they born? Were they married in Curacao or in St. Thomas or somewhere else? Were they Jewish?

The synagogue records of Mikve Israel Emanuel in Curacao do not show Noel's birth nor his parents' marriage. Still Noel is said to have been of Curacaoan Jewish ancestry.

Any information about this ancestry would be greatly appreciated.
