My husbands family is from Rock Sound, Eluthera, Bahamas. I have found some birth records on familysearch.org for his great grandfather but they only go back to 1850 and I would like to find records back further to his his gg grandparents and farther back to find out what country they came to the Bahamas from. His gg grandfathers name is Richard Whitehead Knowles, I have no records of what his parents names were and would like to find that also. Anyone with any information or suggestions where I can find additional records I would greatly appreciate it. You can contact me here or e-mail me at krimabby@sbcglobal.net.

I am from a line of Careys from Eleuthera, Bahamas. I am trying to prove that William Carey married Margaret Knowles vs a Margaret Thompson. Margaret was born about 1845 and William in 1842. They immigrated to Key West around 1880. Do you have these people in your line?

I have checked our family tree as far back as the early 1800's and do not find yet that we have anyone by those names in our Knowles family tree. We have several Margaret's but not Margaret Knowles. We have hit brick walls when it comes to getting any information from the Bahamas, they haven't made anything public on Ancestry. We are looking for Richard Whitehead Knowles from Rock Sound, if you have any info on that part of the Knowles family I would love to see it. You might also try googling the names or trying rootsweb.com. I have found some info on these sites. We do have a Mary Ann Carey that married a Thomas E. Brady in Rock Sound on April 4, 1859, but do not have any information on who her family is. If she is part of your family please let me know. Good luck to you!
