Let me begin thanking you for your actions, which spoke volumes. Let me continue by introducing and or reintroducing myself to one and all. The given European Christian name is irrelevant.  M'lilwana Osanku is the chosen name.  I’m born in New Amsterdam, Berbice. My siblings, children of Muriel E. Sancho , in order of their birth are George, Hamilton, Mariette, Compton, Cheryl and Colin. George, Hamilton, and Cheryl were born in Nabaclis. This Ross family, member of the Sancho clan, was resident in the Golden Grove – Nabaclis area, for a number of years, until maturity and economic opportunities suggest they reside elsewhere.
The Golden Grove –Nabaclis area, is the adopted home of the Sanchos as their surviving story indicates.
Now bear with me as I continue by adding, the article a Profile of Nabaclis, which I posted was a catalysts, a battery charger, If I may, in the developing the idea of a forum, to discuss issues relative and affecting the Golden Grove –Nabaclis area. I found the article inept, juvenile, and not at all reflecting the articulate and the intellectual, who call the area, home. It did not touch on sports, education, music, religion, the slave masters, and the ethnic groups who resided there.

Who are Descendants of Clarence Sancho and Mary (David) Sancho?

Are you aware of Samuel David and Mary (David)Sancho of Golden Grove? Samuel David was a Sergeant of British Guiana Police Force.  Samuel David departed in 1945 or 1946. Mary David and Clarence Sancho were married. The couple had about seven children. Much respect to Wainwright for pointing pieces of information on the David and Sancho union  to me some 43 years ago. Who must I consult to acquire the  knowledge  relative to David family  especially the descendants of  grand Uncle Clarence  Sancho?

John Baptiste Sanco

On Friday, March 20, 2009, I visited the New York Public Library, Humanities and Social Sciences (Research Division). I accessed copies of the Trinidad and Tobago year books for the years 1921 thru 1935. I paid particular attention to the obituary, which is found immediately following local events in the publications.

I made notes of the data of persons with the surnames of interest to me. At this instance I cannot locate the entire documentation.
In the yearbook for the year 1929 data is found telling readers that Mrs. Elizabeth Sancho, 92 years old died on November 30, 1928. I suppose she was born in either 1835 or 1836.  (perhaps, wife of John Sancho??)
In other issues of the yearbook entries listed below are included.
Mrs. Rupert Sancho died November 13, 1924 (Possibly, Chinese-Trinidadian)
John Baptiste Sanco died February 17, 1920. (I believe data will prove this John Sancho to be perhaps too young to be an uncle of Lambert Tuckness Sancho, for I am of the impression Sancho male…

Bertrand Aaran Abrams (1929-1969).  An Unsung Guyanese Patriot “On July 21, 1954, the plaintiff was convicted by the magistrate of the East Demerara Judicial District for being on June 10, 1954, in possession of prohibited publications contrary to s. 4 of the Undesirable Publications (Prohibition of Importation) Ordinance, and fined $25 or one month’s imprisonment in default. The complaint was filed on June 30, 1954, and made returnable for July 7, 1954.”  “As the appeal against your conviction has been abandoned and the fine paid, I have to inform you that, in accordance with the ruling of the Law Officers for the breach of the emergency regulations, you are dismissed from your post as a Cl. II Assistant Teacher in Cane Grove Anglican School as from 11th January, 1955.”  - Joseph H. Jones, Manager, Cane Grove Anglican School. Opinion – I have no recollection of anyone telling Bertrand Abrams was fired as a school teacher. And for whatever the reasons offered by the colonial authorit…
