Seven Gibbs brothers: Panama reader looking for Barbados roots

Bajans On Their Way To Panama

Dear Barbados Free Press readers,

I am trying to find information about my grandfather William Gibbs or any of the Gibbs’s brothers (7 in total) that came to Panama to help built the Panama Canal, around 1904. I hear that the seven came together. Could you find out from which Parish they came from and any other background information, on any of them? Thank you very much!
