A collection of historical and genalogical records
James D Douglass, born 1774 in Franklin, PA and died 1805 in Butler, PA, married to Mary Polly Campbell, is my direct ancestor, and many people have a John (1724-1795) listed as his father and Archibald (1695-1756) as his grandfather in their online trees, but without supporting documentation.
I can document my family back to James, and I can document Archibald on back for a dozen generations, but it's confirming the link between them that I'm struggling with.
Anyone else looking at this part of the Pennsylvania Douglass line? I've confirmed that Archibald did have a son named John, who served as an assemblyman and judge in PA, but I can't find any info on John's children, beyond users on ancestry.com listing James as such.
