Are you sure that his name was Eugene? My grandma name is Mary and she has a sister that is Mae and they are both Sykes.. They have several brothers some of which could possibly be your dad... Do you know anything else about him? Hope to help you.... Give me all the info that you have and I can call some of my relatives there and see what we can do.

What about mae lee and the eugene that your dad thought was possibly a relative? Did you get an opportunity to check with him re this? Also, if your family is not familiar with the miller family, possibly this is a different skyes family. Did your father not know of any gandys in grenada or west point? Thanks for all your concern and help.

Mae Lee is the sister of Eugene F. Sykes
according to my mother. Seth Gandy, my uncle, lived in West Point but often visited his brother and other family members in Grenada. According to Seth, he and Eugene Sykes hung out together often and that Eugene
often talked of me. This Sykes family is related to the Millers (two cousins being Walter and Steve Miller). I have talked with a neice of Eugene by the name of Audrey who indicated that her dad is John Sykes and her mom is Everreen living in Grenada.

Thank you for your help.
