A collection of historical and genalogical records
Dorothey, Can you tell me the names of the Douglass families from NJ you mention as being in Tompkins Co (Dryden?). I have some information on several Douglass lines that went from Morris Co NY to western NY after the Rev. Do you know if any from the Dryden area family done a DNA test?

Thanks for responding. I am curious how you came to the conclusion that my group connects.
According to DNA testing through FamilyTree, my line may descend from Nicholas of Mains, through his son, Malcolm, who was executed in the Ruthven affair. Later found innocent. Malcolm apparently had a descendant that did come to the Virginia/Maryland area.
It was just a guess , Double SS Douglass , Seemed a shot in the dark , but but they were in the area it seems. I got those from the library of virginia online . I just hope its of use to you .
I have a note of a Libbie Douglass who was born in New York in about 1866 to James Sutfin Douglass and Caroline Tamma Bryant.
Libby is my 2nd great aunt. She was born Sarah Elizabeth Douglass, Sept 21, 1865 to James Sutfin Douglass and Caroline Tamma Bryant, in Dryden NY. She died May 5, 1950. She married Frederick Eugene Bascom, Nov 11, 1903. Their son, Harold Douglass Bascom, lived in Ithaca, Ny - when I was a child in the 1950’s - went to Harold’s house for holiday meals etc.
