Charles Alexander Binns (1763-1837), the second clerk of court of Leesburg, Virginia, married Hannah Douglass, the daughter of William Douglass, Sheriff of Loudoun County.

His grandfather (Charles Binns), his father (Charles Binns, Jr.), and his brother William all owned Rokeby in Leesburg. During the burning of Washington in 1814, the U.S. National treasures (the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Articles of Conferation) were housed in the vault in the basement of their estate. The first Charles Binns married Anne Alexander. Her father was a Scotsman named John Alexander for whom the city of Alexandria, Virginia was named.

I think that some of the children of Col William that you list were by Elizabeth Offutt?

Welcome to our group, Mary.

Can you put places and dates to your ancestor. He may appear in someone else's tree and that would help make the connection.

Yours aye,

William

 
 
 

Making conections

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?
