I have not had much luck with queries of the Dowdy's from Montserrat. My grandfather Charles Dowdy, was born Hickson Bottom in Montserrat but lived in the Panama Canal Zone at some point. He left Panama and went to New York in the early 1920's and died there when my father was about 3 years old. His family never joined him as planned. I belive he had some relatives there, perhaps a sister or a cousin. His father was Hezikiah Dowdy and his mother Matilda both from Montserrat.
