"Welcome to our group, Gary.
I assume that the Thomas Johnson that you refer to is the one who married Margeret Douglas, heiress to Bonjedward?
And that this is 'your' Isabella?
These are several generations apart.
Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
I am trying to connect to my 2191 genetic "2nd to remote cousins", so I am searching from Robert the Bruce downward. My interest today, is in Thomas Johnson / Douglas, vs. Archibald Douglas. The person I am trying to link to's ancestress is Isabelle Douglas, who ran away to America. But she has the wrong Archibald -- 1647, is too early for the English, or Hunterdon County, NJ. 1746, 1747, works much better. There are 4 different American family stories about the circumstances of Isabelle Douglas's arrival, in America.
Who is your earliest known Douglas ancestor?
The line through Robert the Bruce's daughter (alleged relationship)
R-S2858 If the stories are correct, it would come through the Rohans.

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.
Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.
Professions also help.
'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.
Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
