A collection of historical and genalogical records
I found my Great Great Grandmother Jane DOUGLAS on a surviving fragment of the 1821 census at Edenburt near Virginia Co. Cavan Ireland. She was born 1813 and had brothers Alexander and John. She and John ended up in England - She in Whitehaven and he in Liverpool. She married John BENNET (sic) and produced several children including Martha BENNET who married my Great Grandfather Thomas HOLMES CHAFFIN of Liverpool, Lancashire, England.
