The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Looking for Decendants of WILLIAM DOUGLASS b-1720, Charles County, Maryland, U.S.A. Married to a "Rachael".

I am trying to find who William Douglass parents were, or "Rachaels" maiden name. I am desperately trying to research past this brick wall! I am trying numerous angles and many geneology sites. If you know of anything of my 5-G-Grandfather, or anyone else who may know, PLEASE contact me here and I can give you an email address. Also I can give you more information on my Douglas family tree. We are of Black Douglas.
Thank-you,

Wendy,

If I read your own page correctly, you are looking for William Douglass, b1720 in Charles Co. MD.USA,D-1786, Franklin Co.PA.,USA? Forgive me, but I have no idea where MD is! I can guess the other initials, but I do not know that one.

Also from your own page, I think he married Rachael, and had children Children: Robert, Samuel, William, Martha, Joseph (your 4-G), Rachael and Mary. Do you have any dates for these people?

Again, from your page, I think this Joseph married Rebecah Robb b-1/28/1795 KY,USA d-2/17/1887,KY and his son, Robert (your 3-G) married Sarah Robb-b-1805, KY d-c.1863, Logansport,IND. You want to know if the two Robbs are related.

William

PS Oh! I have just re-read your title, and I now know MD is Maryland! My point is, really, that for those of us outside the US of A, abbreviations of states and counties do not come readily to us. It is good if we can have them in full.

OK - according to Ancestry.com -- William Douglass father was Thomas DOUGLAS --Birth 1692 in Picawaxon, Charles, Maryland, United States -- Death 11 Feb 1756 in Picawaxon, Charles, Maryland, United States.  His wife appears to be Elizabeth Gardner (Gardiner?) --Birth 1696 in Charles, Maryland, United States-Death 29 Aug 1758 in Charles, Maryland, United States.   and it goes way back from there if these links are correct.

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?
