I will seek out the NYG&BS holdings on the VirginIslands ans well as the NY NARA office, perhaps they can request from D.C. The New England Historical Society now has as editor of its periodical the expert on the Islands from Barbados all the way thru. He was editor of the New York G&B for soem time I believe.
The advice you gave is on my list. Thank you. Does your Bond family have ties to Baltimore in the 1700s? Or New York, Boston or Phily?
I am seeing that extensive searches in Charleston SC are going to have to be made as well for my RUAN, RUSE, STARR, REMBERT, LEMAN, WALKER, HURD, DEBLOIS, RICHARDSON, DASHIELL, HAMLIN, DORSEY, MALL, WORTHINGTON, etc. families.
