A collection of historical and genalogical records
Son of Hugh Douglas , John Douglas is listed on Canadian Census 1901 as born in 1858, Presbyterian, emigrated to Canada in 1874, residing in Montreal, Quebec. Married to Mary Ann (nee) Regan. He died in October 1904 in an industrial accident. Inscription on grave stone "From Ballymena Antrim"
A marriage certificate indicates John's parents as Hugh Douglas and Margaret McMahon living in England.
Note: The certificate for John's marriage was written in French with some spelling errors in the given and family names, also the England residence of his parents conflict with other sources of information.
If this is any help, considering there is a family naming tradition, I am including the forenames of John and Mary Ann'schildren from the eldest down to the youngest in the hope that a connection may be made with other Douglas families. The eldest, Hugh Jeremiah, followed by Florence John (male), William James, Charles Patrick, Kathleen Ellen, Thomas Joseph, Mary Margaret, Agnes Gertrude, Grace Eveline, Herbert Francis, and the youngest, Albert Edward.
