Ella Schmidt, a.k.a. Mama Wilson, wife of Donald Wilson and mother of
Mama Lori, Donald, Harry, Arthur, Louise, Alice, Myrtle and three others.
This was in St. Eustacia (Sint Eustatius), Dutch West Indies, correct?
So they were all Dutch citizens. The official language there is Dutch
but according to Wikipedia, "English is the 'language of everyday life' on
the island and education is solely in English. A local English-based
creole is also spoken informally." It's very small place, only 8 square
miles and less than 4000 people. Did Ella come to the USA? Was her husband
Donald Wilson also from St. Eustacia?
