Profile Information

Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
My great grandfather was William Douglas (I think his middle initial was "J" but not certain) B. 1847 - d. 1909. He married Elizabeth McKinley in 1871. That is all certified. What I am searching for is his parents. I did get some information from 1850 US census that his Father - William Douglas may have been born 1806 - the William Douglas born to this William Douglas would have been 3 years old and that would be correct as my great grandfather was born in 1847. However, I am not certain of the birth date of his father - 1806 - only guessing from the 1850 census report taken in Bracken County, Kentucky. There are a lot of William Douglas' - whew! So - is there information about the William Douglas born in 1806? Thank you Sherri Beardsley

My grandmother was indeed Stella Douglas and married Baron Von Pagel.  My mother was Willetta Gracia and her sister was Laverne (can't remember the middle name will need to look it up).  Thank you I will continue with the search and you have been most helpful

Welcome to our Community, Sherri.

Can you put dates to your grandmother? It might help others connect with yur family.



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?
