Announcements of Deaths Victoria Elliott, Annie Sophia Elliott and Tuckness Sancho

Announcements of the Deaths of Miss Victoria Elliott and her mother, Mrs. Annie Sophia Elliott and her grand Uncle Tuckness Sancho
This creature compared the information printed in the media respecting the transitions of Miss Victoria Elliott and her mother, Mrs. Annie Sophia Elliott, and her grand Uncle Tuckness Sancho
  1. Miss Victoria Elliott departed on Sunday, February 25, 1945
  2. Mrs. Annie Sophia Elliott departed on Monday, September 13, 1948
  3. These two events transpired three years, six months and nineteen days apart/
  4. Annie Kathleen Elliott is not mentioned in both of the announcements. However, Tappin Johnson Elliott is listed in the announcements. Annie Kathleen Elliott departed on May 5, 1935 
  5. Tappin Johnson Elliott departed on June 8, 1938.
  6. Edward Elliott is said to be resident at Ann’s Grove. 
  7. Henry Elliott is listed as Stationmaster at Belfield Railway Station.

However, three years later only the employment of Sarah Sandy is mentioned. Now, this researcher believes Cecil Sandy and Cecily Sandy departed before Monday, September 13, 1948 and perhaps, even before Sunday, February 25, 1945. The thinking is, if Cecil Sandy and Cecily Sandy were alive; their names would have been listed in both announcements. This researcher also believes Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy departed before Tuckness Sancho did on September 13, is simply gut feelings –conjecture. Why would the immediate relatives of Tuckness Sancho request that New York and Trinidad & Tobago newspapers copy the announcement and not mention at least Mary Sandy? Therefore this researcher is convinced that Tuckness Sancho was the last known surviving child of Bentick Sancho and Mary Sarah Sancho. This researcher would dearly love to access published reports respecting the passing of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy. This researcher believes the publications respecting the departure of Mary Sandy is likely to exhibit names of her siblings, and nieces and nephews which are of great consequence to this effort.  This Researcher would love to ascertain whether Benjamin Sandy was indeed a stationmaster at Enmore and elsewhere. This researcher would love the dates of the deaths of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy. The remains of Benjamin Sandy and Mary Sandy are likely interred at either Golden Grove or Nabaclis. The feelings they are at Nabaclis in the vicinity of the tombs of Tappin Elliott and Annie Sophia Elliott. This researcher would love to ascertain whether Bourne Sancho, Swanton Sancho, Robert Johnson Sancho, Emily Callighan and Adelaide Luke are listed as relatives and the married name of the sister of Mary Sandy…

Identifying Gill Lineage - Descendants of Sancho

Soliciting Information - Gill of Guyana and Barbados.  I am really focusing on the Sancho lineage. I believe it's best to chat about the Gill people from the migration from Barbados to Demerara to the known members of Buxton and Friendship and thus to Golden Grove, Nabaclis and Haslington and their movement beyond Guyana in the twentieth century. I need to be enlightened.  I am soliciting information on the lineage of the kinship of GILL. I need to identify the Sancho ancestor of the members of the kinship of Gill, mentioned below. I am referring to Gill of Buxton-Friendship and their off springs - Arthur Gill and his descendants – of Golden Grove-Nabaclis.  The known members of this Gill kinship of Gill includes; Susan Elizabeth Gill died on Sunday, November 27, 1938.  Ms. Gill was 91 years old.
