HI, Thanks ever so for the info. I now have records of the journey from Trinidad to Us along with his cousin Marie Brooks. There is also his relative Dr Robert Brooks, who I have found on the US Census, and have a copy of his Obituary. He founded a hospital in Georgia. But I now have no further leads, I am still searching for birth and death of Charles. I have him travelling back and forth UK - New York as a seaman, last one being when he was 40. Where he travelled from St John to New York. I also have no further leads on the Brooks family, who seemed to be his closest relatives. Charles Bonnett enlisted to the Canadian army in Detroit Michigan. Many thanks.
