Henry Samuel Gordon - Jamaica
« on: Friday 08 December 17 02:19 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I'm looking for birth parents of Henry Samuel Gordon. The word of mouth information I have is:
b. Nov 1916 - Beckford Kraal, Clarendon, Jamaica
m. Hilda Adina Drummond
d. 9 Sep 1990

Issue:
1. Ronald Orlando Gordon b. 14 Jan 1944 Blackwoods, Clarendon, Jamaica

I haven't found a marriage record yet which would normally provide some/all of the parent details.
In Scotland:-
