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.

William, was it my brother Nigel Emery (adopted) or my half brother Stephen Palmer Douglas that your caller was trying to get hold of?  Cavers House is still up for sale, so naturally I am still interested in what happens to it, especially as I was born there, so if you can remember who the interested party was, I would really like to know.  Also does anyone know who and when the two chestnut trees were planted at Cavers House.  One tree died very many years ago, the other one , known as 'The Tradition Tree' was 'demolished' in the late 1990's.  The tree also had a family curse with it - does any know anything about that.

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?

Steve

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
