      Message Body:
      Good Afternoon, I am working on my family tree and came across your site, I think it's amazing!
      I also have a cousin that tracks the family genealogy he is way more advanced then I am and would love for you two to connect.

      Missing Information: Remo Idalia Gittens gave birth to her first child at age 15 to a Charles Waterman,
      Charles Waterman is my grandfather, Earl Waterman is my father, Remo is my great-grandmother.

      I have provided you links to help with Verfication, his last name is spelled incorrectly with two "n".
      I know the following information to be true because I grew up knowing Remo, my great-grandmother was very much present in my life.

      Link 1: https://www.ancestry.com/1940-census/usa/Virgin%20Islands/Charles-Watermann_5m9w8w
      Link 2: https://www.ancestry.com/1940-census/usa/Virgin-Islands/Remo-Gittens_5m9w8r

      Incorrect Information: Rigmor Barron is listed as a male, but actually it is Rigmore Barron and she is female.

      Dorene E. Carter is now decease. Link: https://stthomassource.com/content/2012/05/09/dr-dorene-e-carter-dies/

      Douglas Carter Sr. is also decease but I couldn't find a link to an obituary

      Have a great weekend. Best Regards, Nerisa
