A collection of historical and genalogical records
I am currently trying to trace my lineage back to the homeland but have hit a brick wall. Although a cousin of mine has participated in the Clan Douglas DNA project ( I highly encourage any male members of the name Douglas to do so too) we have found our line appears to branch from Douglas of Mains family. My goal is to connect the dots and complete the tree going back. Our earliest known Ancestor for sure is:
b. Sept 1798 Delaware County, New York
m. 1823 to Flora L. Leete, Tompkins County, New York
d. Dec 1886 Dunbar, Otoe County, Nebraska
Through some incredible research, my cousin, Dorothey, has concluded that James father and grandfather were the following men:
(Father of James)
b. About 1766 in Orange/Delaware Co. New York?
d. between 1830 and 1835 in Caroline, Tomkins County, New York
(Father of William)
b. 1723 Where Unknown
m. ? to Elizabeth R. Douglass(b. 1728 d. Sep, 1795 Harpersfield, Delaware Co., New York)
d. Mar, 1809 Harpersfield, Delaware Co., New York
Anyone with any ideas or information on these individuals would be greatly appreciated.
(Douglas in Spirit and Blood)
