I am not certain if the families are the same. What I do know is that all three names are used by the family that I am related to. The information came orally from relatives there is some disagreement as to the exact place of origin East Indies covers a wide area. We sort of wondered about the name. My grandmother spoke of meeting her grandfather as a child he was a dark complected Asian with a braid. He came over as a contract laborer and oversaw or rented farms at different times in St Croix, Statia and St Kitts. His wife was a lighter "fair" complected Afro-Caribbean woman. The estates on St Croix he was associated with were Princess Stock Farm and Recovery.
