Info on Johnny Deguire (my greatgrand)

edited December 1969 in Family and Friends
Hi,

I am from nowhere near Madeira. I am from the Caribbean island of St.Thomas United States Virgin Islands but was raised on the island of St. Kitts. My grandmother raised me on that island and it became evident after a while that she was of a European "reddish" color. Naturally I was curious. My uncle told me that her father was from Portugal but apparently more specifically Madeira. The reason information is so sketchy is because she hardly knew him since he had her with a local girl.

All I know is his name. I have no idea what he looks like and my grandmother is too old at this point to assist me with any little info. I tried to do a search in St. Kitts but I cannot come up with anything. He and many others from Madeira came to St. Kitts and other islands in search of work back in the early 1900s.

Again the name is Johnny Deguire but I would be happy to hear from ANY Deguires. If anyone has ANY info on him or the name, I would greatly appreciate it. E-mail me at:

Thank you so much.
