Looking for relatives of this person married to my GG grandmother, 2nd marriage, immigrated from Kingston, Jamaica in 1918 to New York. From 1935 worked on board several ships sailing all around the world. Left no children. Died 1971-72. His wife Maud Millicent McConney of African descent also, from Port of Spain, Trinidad.

There is a "Declaration of Intention" for Robert Brennan dated 30 Dec 1918, which might interest you. And also a "Petition for Citizenship" dated 1 Apr 1927. Maud is mentioned on both. (See attachments)

Hi Brian

I lost your message for a while so am writing now. You sent me information I previously had but I am curious as to why you replied. Do you have any connection to the Brennan family or were you just being a good Samaritan.?
