Douglas and his birth

On November 15, 2015 I gave the birth of Edward Douglas with an age of 40 in 1640 which was recorded in Northampton County, Virginia in "Orders, Wills, and Deeds"#1 page 218, 1612-1640, "age 40 in 1640". At the time I thought this was a reference to Edward Douglas, husband of Isabella Dale. I, now, realize this is a reference to the father of Edward Douglas, husband of Isabella.

Edward Douglas and Dumferline, Fife, Scotland

I have examined the Dunfermline of Fife, Scotland and come up with the following-

Edward Douglas, born 1560 married Jonet Sanders 23 August 1584. Their were two children- Margaret and Thomas. Thomas Douglas was born 8 Oct 1589.

I realize I am speculating but it seems we have two valid possibilities.

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?
