Jacobs....from .St. Lucia..Trinidad relatives

My grandmother Sabina Nicholas nee Gasperez died in December at the age of 100. My grandmother was the last link to her family from St. Lucia. Her mother , my great grand mother, Honorine (ra) Jacob was born January 22nd 1873.

Her mother was a white French woman. Her father was a Creole house slave. They had 5 acres of land - and they grew a very unique plant - this plant was used to make dye. They made money selling this plant. She had 9-10 sisters. Apparently most had moved to Trinidad. However the last known relative I knew of in St. Lucia, died in either the late 90's or early 2001. Her name was Sister Mary Margaret, a nun associated with the convent in Castries. I would very much like to connect with family and visit St. Lucia.
If you know of this family or if you are related, please contact me at
