adina lindo/linda pizza walker

+3 votes
Adina lived in the USA around 1898 till around 1927.

She said she was born in New Port, Rhode Island 1872 however there are no vital/nor religious records of any kind, we did see on family search her christening record in Jamaica and mayber her son Norman Lindo (though he used the last name Pizza) born July 23, 1896, her oldest son Lancelot V. Pezza(an e) was born

October 31, 1893, no birth records have been found, draft and social security cards have, no absolutely as to date valid birth or who were fathers.

Adina did marry a George Reginald Walker around 1898 and had a son with the same name around 1899, however again no marriage nor birth record. thanks.

Have you considered that in the 1870's her father may have been a seaman - thus being in Newport, RI and Jamaica etc.?  Norman's birth is recorded in Jamaica.

Many thanks yes we think our grandfather is Norman Lindo, however we are trying to find a record of he and his brother Lancelot Pezza's father.

thanks again.
