Re: Emanuel Belinfante Deleon/West Indies to Masscachusetts

This looks very much like a Sephardic (Jewish) genealogy. The surname Belinfonte was frequently Sephardic, and a number of Old Testament first names together, as here, strongly suggests a Sephardic background. There are several websites devoted to Jamaican Sephardic genealogy on the web -- this is a very well-documented group of people -- and if you're interested, they should be able to help you.
