    Hello Burton,
    We are also researching the name Crowie and would love to see the photo that you have. I'm not sure how common the surname Crowie is on St. Helena. I know there were 3 on the slave lists compiled in the 1800s. We have a Thelma and Vera Crowie, born around 1930 and we think their father's name was Dennis.

    I am searching for ancestral and historical information on 2 individuals:
    1) Eveline/Evalina Redsdale/Redsteal arrived in Martha's Vineyard on the whaler "Niger" from St. Helena, ca. 1880.  She had 2 marriages here (1) Samuiel Peters, (2) Lewis H. Cook, both of whom were Aquinnah (Gay Head) Indians.   Her descendants are still extant.
    2) Henry Crowie - a gentleman of color, said he was born in St. Helena; he died in Dennis, Mass., 28 July 1938, aged about 65 years.  He married a local girl here, but had no children. 
    Any assistance on finding more about these two individuals would be appreciated.   We have a photo of Mr. Crowie and his wife that we are willing to share, as well as information on the descendants of Evalina.
