I am researching the Doward family also the Balfour family. Robert Doward came to St. Croix in the Danish West Indies in 1887from the country of Suriname, South America.He met one Sarah Elizabeth Williams and fathered Ludvig Doward in 1895. Ludvig Doward met my mother Alma Balfour who is the child of Anthony Balfour and Annastacia Thomas. They resided
at estate Annally which is located on the northern side of St. Croix. Anthony Balfour was from estate Big Fountain. His father was Christian Joshua Balfour and his mother was Jane Hentietta Frederck
Both Henrietta and Christian Balfour died in June of 1869 at the age of 35.
I cannot find any information on Robert Doward and request from t
he authorities in Suriname is unansawed. I also cannot find the birthdates of Hentietta and Christian nor parents for both.
Robert Doward was a Moravian, Henrietta Frderick was also a Moravian but converted to the Catholic church shortly before her death in 1869. Christian Balfour was a Catholic.
