Welcome to our community, Patricia.

I have a note that says Margret Ragg was born in Dalhousie on 1 JUL 1683 to Alexander Rag and Margaret Pyper. Margret Ragg married John Bruce Douglas and had 2 children, David, born 1717 and Margaret, born 1705. She died in 1721 in Falahill, Eddelston.

There seem to be a number of people named John Bruce Douglas about this time.  One married Judith Moorman and sired a dynasty.  It was he, or another who was kidnapped and sent to America to deprive him of an inheritance.  One, maybe one of the previous, was son of William Douglas (1668-1741) who married Grisheald (or Grizzel) McKeand - or maybe not.

I wonder if anyone from this line has had their dna tested?

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?
