In Reply to: WATKIS, Kenneth, Alexander by Sharon Watkis of 28

My grandfather's name was John Henry Watkis. He was born in Panama,in 1886 to a family that was from St. Ann in Jamaica. He had a younger brother named Wesley Wellington. He moved to Brooklyn, New York in the late 1940's with my grandmother (Agnes, maiden name Young, also from Jamaica) and their five children, Settuce, Henry (my dad), Clinton, Crafton, and Roy. I was raised in Brooklyn, but now live in New Jersey. I am also curious to know if you have more info. on other Watkis family members. Please respond to me @ Thanks.
