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 firstname.lastname@example.org
