The Cecilia Heraux (nee Cohen) mentioned in the newspaper in relation to the title deed of Cambrian was the daughter of Fransisco Cohen. She married Edmond Heraux in jamaica 7 Dec 1887 and her address was then Barry street 115.

She died in Port aux Prince  Haiti in 1943 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QP8X-7HPJ

Looks like they had a son Edmond https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:73FD-RN6Z

They had a daughter born at Cambrian 01 Aug 1894 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9Q97-YS89-MCH7?i=1308&cc=1538386&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AXN97-LJM

Here they are at Ellis Island and entry says Cecilia was Cuban age 49 (born 1866) https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C9TX-BGBF?i=216&cc=1368704&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AJJWP-T43

Hi Erato

If you go to https://cubangenclub.org/cpage.php?pt=145

then on the left margin of the page under Carmaguay you'll see Chucrh Records Carmaguay 1 and Carmaguay 2.

Actually I've just done that and the links (in red) are for actual certificates of those named, of which there are none for Ross. They have only acquired the ones they have online, so there are others.

Hi Erato

I'm leafing through one of the digitized books (its in Spanish) and in it is says that civil registration started on the 1st January 1885, so that prior to that all births would have been recorded in the books kept by the curates in each parish.

Leonard

Since I can understand Spanish, I read through the Spanish baptism description for Florencio born to Jose Cohen and Emilia Nunez. While the baptism date has been transcribed in English, his date of birth and other info has not. In the Spanish text, it says he was born on 10th April 1902 and that he had 3 godparents - Dario and Ines Melendez and what looks like Fabio Urriola (who was added after the declaration of the above 2 people as god parents).
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9GBC-94QQ?i=405&cc=1913397

This is Florencio working in the Panama Canal Zone- same date of birth but with incorrectly spelled surname Indexed entry - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVBD-HTZ8

His photo ID https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-99XZ-DRZV?i=432&cc=2193241&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AQVBD-HTZ8

His fingerprints! https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-89XZ-DRVS?i=433&cc=2193241

The place of engagement (Cristobal Panama) and same occupation - Coal passer matches the Florencio above https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C95R-4S3V?i=1117&cc=1368704&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AJ6VH-5MP

And we already know he then married Victoria Eugenia Monteza in 1928 (also known by her baptism name see post from June 10th)
