Who are the parents of William H Carey (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Carey-1749) born about 1845 in the Bahamas - probably Eleuthera.  He married Margaret Knowles, daughter of Thomas Knowles and Mary(Thompson) Knowles. His children were Emma Jane, Mary Ida, William Jr, Gertrude, and Nettie Bell. he might have had two sons named William - Wm Nelson and Wm H.  I haven't been able to locate who his parents were.  He is my 2nd great gandfather.  All help, leads, hints, etc. appreciated.

Yes, I have that information, but unfortunately it doesn't tell who his parents are.
