Jim,

I think your profile image is too tall! Either chop yourself off at the bottom - or make the whole thing smaller.

Sorry!

Hello William,
Here is what I have on the Douglas.Gouglass line of mine.
John Douglas
b/1764 in either North or South Carolina USA md/Nancy Denman Walden d/1839 in Mississippi.
Jepthah Douglas
b/1808 in Georgia, m/Smith, d/1856 Mississippi
Andrew J Douglas
b/1829 d/1900 in Mississippi m/Bishop
Ellison Jeptha Douglas
b/1854 d/1936 m/English

the name Ellison comes from EJ's grandfather Ellison Bishop.

I am Ellison Jeptha's grandson thru his daughter Maude.

Have a great day. Hope this clears up a little lol.

Welcome, Jim!

Do you know the relationship between the husband and wife? 1st cousin, perhaps? I do not have any record of this marriage, so it is an interesting area. Ellison is fairly unusual as a first name, so that should help - but it does not seem to yet.

Maybe someone here in out Community Network can help?

Yours aye,

William
 
 
 

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?
