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.
