Steve, WWH was a printer -- I have a copy of his business card somewhere.My mom knew her grandparents very well and frequently stayed with them as a child.She always said he was a printer, too.
I was e-mailing for a while with Bill Healis, who lives in FL.His grandmother (I believe) also had the Healis in England story and thought the name was spelled differently.She was (is?) a Healis by marriage.(I'd have to check my facts again to be sure.)
I don't totally discount these stories; however, families tend to have stories that develop over the years that may or may not be true or have just a grain of truth in them.Emily Egbert had uncovered nothing on this and I know she had done extensive research.I thought she had found birth records in Barbados for most of the family, but again, I'd need to check my records.
