Profile Information

Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
All areas of Douglas history and genealogy are of interest to me.

I am keen to track back family lines that are considered 'brick walls', and hope to be able to do this through the networking opportunities that arise through media such as this.

Stephen A. Douglas: The Political Apprenticeship, 1833-1843

Posted on June 14, 2016 at 10:57 0 Comments

When newly elected Illinois State Representative Abraham Lincoln first saw his diminutive colleague Stephen A. Douglas, he sized him up as ""the least man I ever saw."" With the introduction of Douglas' first bill in 1834, Lincoln soon thought differently. The General Assembly not only passed the bill, it appointed the 21-year old Douglas State's Attorney of Illinois'…

Captain Douglas, in custody on a charge of desertion

Posted on June 7, 2016 at 11:10 0 Comments

A curious scene was witnessed in the Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday; the law playing with a prisoner as a cat with a mouse. Captain Douglas, who had been in custody on a charge of desertion, was brought up on a writ of habeas corpus. The facts of the case may be briefly recapitulated. Captain Douglas, has been in the service…

thanks William,

I have been able to work my way back a ways in the last month,  and I know have the following info as latest known Douglass:

John C Douglass  b.1856  Wife- Susie A.   b.1868     I also belive that his father was a T. E. Douglass I am assuming this is a Theodore Douglass ,  and i think he was born 1827 married to an Elizabeth born 1834.  unfortunately i cannot find much on T.E.  other then a 1850 census report showing him as born in NY and at 23 years old living in a multi family home with Connors and Whallans

William,

Were you able to find the info. I posted on my page?  If not, do you know how I can get that to you?

It's on "my page".  Is there some other place I should put it?  I'm woefully unfamiliar with how these sites work.

At 15:34 on July 17, 2016, stevan scott douglas said…

Hello William,

I added to the forum some of the older info. I have from a relative's notes.  They start with the James Douglas of the 1700's and work back.  Do you have any suggestions how I can trace the lineage from James going back?

William, Yes, that's my family, and I've written to Kentucky to see if they have

any 1797 local information.  I have some info about William and Hugh D or David Hugh being in the Civil War, although William obviously older. The wife is Caty or Catherine, Born 1799, married 15 Aug 1822, Adair, KY, and her father was Levi Conover.  My info on him goes back to John W Couwenhoven, born 1681, and Wm. Updike, born 1704.  Maybe you have this. Great to have another person to relate to.  I recently visited Douglas Brides mausoleum in Scotland.

Hi William

thankyou for the information. It seems the headstones in Hounam are of some of my direct ancestors. The George Douglas 1727 - 1794 and Agnes Robson 1733 - 1795 are my Great grandparents x 6.

I am coming up to Edinburgh on Thursday 7th July for 4 days so I don't know if I would be able to meet some current Douglas's and I will try to get out to Hounam.

I would appreciate any more information you can give me.

Thanks

Sharon

Thank you, William!  I'll try the forum first and see if that will work.  My sister and I plan to visit Scotland next September and would like to see some "Douglas castles" and any other pertinent sites.  If you could recommend some?  Thanks again!

At 1:13 on June 29, 2016, stevan scott douglas said…

Thank you, William.  I don't use Facebook or Twitter or any other social media, so I don't really know how or where to add this information.  Can you give me suggestions? I have a family history, though I don't know how accurate it is, that I could post somewhere.

At 22:09 on June 21, 2016, Judy A Douglass said…

yes, this is the Samuel H Douglass born 1726 and I have in Albemarie Co. Virginia. He died 1755 in Chilhowee, Johnson Co., MO. I don't have any other information other than he married Mary ?Denison?/maybe Davis 2 Nov 1749 in New London, Campbell Co., Virginia. From this point on, I am confused as to his father and so on. I originally had Archibald, born 1695 in Scotland, but another shows a Capt. Richard Douglass, b. 1682 and died 26 Nov 1756 in Lancaster, PA. I sure would like to get to Scotland and confirm my Douglass lineage. Thank you Judy
