    3. I am trying to find the ancestors of Robert Carlos/Charles Hardy. He would have been born c 1881 as he was aged 36 when he travelled on the SS Maraval to the USA arriving at Ellis Island on 15th July 1916 and said he was going to New York. At Ellis island he listed his father R H Hardy of the Colonial Hospital in Port of Spain as his nearest kin. He also said he was born in what looks like Slandall or Slandale Nova Scotia, but lived in Port of Spain. and that he was Visiting: Friend W Johnson West 131 Street He signed up for the 3rd battalion of the Gordon Highlanders 18th July 1917 and was transferred to the reserves in 1919. On his medical for he gives his birth as Port of Spain, Trinidad. The British Government paid for his fare back to the USA 14th May 1919 when he travelled back on the SS Ulva he was aged 38 and was going to the house of Mrs Johnson 70W 131St NY. I have him on the 1920 USA census aged 37 and living in the house of David and Anne Johnson at 70W 131st Street, Manhattan Assembly District 19, New York. It says born British West Indies. I also have him on the 1930 census age 42 (a bit of discrepancies in the ages here) and he says born Scotland and both parents were born in Scotland. He is with wife Mildred and 6 children. I would appreciate any help that you might be able to give me as I have been researching this family now for some years and somehow or other Robert Carlos remains an enigma. Eveline
