Finally!We have a "genforum" for our wonderful Grinage descendents and connected relatives. I'm looking for descendents or those linked to GREENIDGES from the British West Indies. My grandfather was Dr.Robert Isaac Greenidge born(1888) in Georgetown, British Guiana. His father was Isaac Theophilus Greenidge ,born in Barbados abt. 1865 and his mother was Angelina Greaves. She married a Phillips after the death of Isaac.
The irony is that my grandfather came to Battle Creek Michigan in the early 1900's to pursue a career in medicine and married Barbara Morris, a Canadian(b. 1893), who is connected to the GRINAGES in Ontario Canada. There are many persons from the West Indies who migrated to Canada during the 1800's. I've always believed that there is a connection between the Grinages and Greenidges. Early Canadian records show "Grinage" spelled Grenidge, Grennage and various ways Any assistance, information or thoughts regarding this are most appreciated.
