Part 274s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1829 Gavin Smith

03 May 2010

Afternoon,

Just got out of the pool… I had to cool down after cutting bamboo and the hedge. Looks like some big bird squatted right on top of the crepe myrtle in the front. I’ve been pulling dead and broken, new branches. Certainly looks like some mother-of-a-bird had to have thought it was a nest. In all these years I’ve never had that happen. The front garden is definitely a conglomeration of color and scents and you know it is heightened when the empty green garbage bags even begin smelling like they are laced with perfume.

The garden is just a continuing bloom of color. And all the banana mamas have had daughters… so much for the past freeze. (All of the above images were taken this week in my gardens.)

And back to my genealogy search and research for the ancestry and origins of ggg-grandfather James Smith. My next Record appears to be a Document entered 30 June 1829 but in reference to a recorded transaction of 2nd and 3rd of March, 1804. As I thought I would be going back and forth through the years trying to search for the clues and the hints that may or may not be pertinent to ggg-grandfather James. This Record includes one Gavin Smith, who I believe was the same who created the early surveying and mapping of Grenada. From all previous investigation I have not encountered any documentation which inter-connects genealogically Gavin Smith to ggg-grandfather James.

The following pages, 34 and 35 from the Grenada Registers of Records and downloaded from Item 4 of the microfilm FHL [1563380].
