- Oct 30, 2007Hi Everyone.
I am trying to trace any decendents of Sophia Killen and John Phillips,
my 4xgreat Grandparents. Sophia was born in 1795 a slave on the island,
John born 1791, was a soldier (not sure where he was born) They had
eight Children and I am decended from the first Ann Jane phillips born
1815, who married Benjamin Parker a soldier with the EIC, he was born
in royton Lancs Englad. The other 7 children are, John Archibald, Mary
Ann, William Patrick, Charles Fredrick, Charles Edward, James
Nathenial, and Amelia. Jane and Benjamin returned to England in about
1837. Jane and Benjamin had 13 children, the first 3 Chilren being born
on St Helena. I was wondering if there are any decendents still living
on the Island. Sophia and John married in 1823 and remaind on the
Island.Sophia died in 1827 and John in 1862 aged 70. I hope there is
someone out there that can help me. Heres hoping.
