Hi..my 2x GF was Lemuel Douglas b. 1811 in NOh Carolina USA. He died in Orange County NC 1893 and is buried there..
His children, according to 1880 census, were Susan J, Martha F, John M, Levi W, Joseph Y, Sely A, and youngest, William Andrew Douglas, my 1x great grandfather, whom I was named after.
Lemuel was married to Frances Browning.
I have found in 1755 tax list from Orange County a John Douglas. The 1779 tax list has John Douglas, David Douglas, and William Douglas. None of them have wills that I can locate, only probate files with no family information, outside of of a probate for a John Douglas from 1816 with a widow of Margaret. I don’t know if this is the same John on the 2 tax lists.
I need help past Lemuel. I can’t find out his parents names, and thus, can’t connect him to one of the 3 Douglas’ on the tax lists. Please help if anyone knows anything about these Orange County NC Douglas’s.
