Part 284s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1829 James, David, & Archibald Smith

27 May 2010

Good Morning,

Did you know that leftover roasted turkey and potatoes, onions, curry powder, salt and pepper, chilies and 6in1 tomatoes… and don’t forget the peanut butter make a great African Turkey Stew, of sorts? And the accompanying soda-crackers had seaweed strips baked into them instead of salt.

Yesterday afternoon playing the role of Mr. Green Jeans I harvested some green and asparagus beans, and some tomatoes. I then called the Pack to come on in. Only two Rats and one Golden Lab responded. Taylor, the Chocolate Lab, was nowhere to be seen. I called and I called and then I quickly got a glimpse of some brush shaking. When I got over to the spot, her head sticking out of the bush, she just looked at me with her doleful eyes. She was stuck. Trapped. Snarled and caught by the bloody Kudzu vine that has constantly invaded and waged an offensive onslaught against my so-called gardening prowess over the years. And Taylor weighs in at about 65 lbs.

The image is an 1891 map of Carriacou found at Wikipedia.

And I continue work on my Transcription Project. The search for my family tree members, specifically my ggg-grandfather James Smith certainly is at times exasperating. This new Record from the Grenada Registers of Records, dated 1 September 1829 is another long one. It includes a number of people, actually quite a number of folks, and it includes three Smiths – James; David; and Archibald. As, what has become commonplace there are no stand-out hints or clues that there are any relative or ancestral or family ties to ggg-grandfather James.

This Document downloaded from the microfilm FHL [1563380] includes the multiple pages of 296 to and including 310. The plurality of the Record is the listing of family members who seem to be located in Carriacou, Grenada, Maine, Scotland, and England. And as I noted that the next couple of Records include the same people I will attempt to map out a sort of family relationship charting. Who knows what I may discover from a visual representation of the same.

And here are two questions to ask when you review the Record and Transcription – (1) What happened to the 11th part? and (2) Where is the Schedule marked (B)?

Here are the pages: 296 to 310 -


And my transcription -
