Page 311 Orange County Court Records ,  seems to be in reference Col.George Douglas of Accomack Virginia . Citation-miles files ; ''Col. George Douglas was undoubtedly the leading lawyer of Accomack in his day. He was King's Counsel, and a burgess for thirty-two years. He died in 1758.''

 The Collins listed in this record were Saponi ,  It is interesting that Out of George Douglas, Isaac Smith, John Ingram, William Crawford and Bryan Susson,

Douglas ,Smith and Crawford were in the House of Burgess's .... both Scott and myself are wondering why would they be willing to help these Native Americans. 

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?
