A collection of historical and genalogical records
A recurring theme here in the Douglas Archives is the tale of Isabella Douglas, who married Benjamin Fortner.
Who she was remains a mystery, though there are several theories
Did she run away from a stern father? Did her lover fail to join her on the voyage to America? Was the ship boarded by pirates? Was she sold to the highest bidder?
Are you a descendant of one of her 12 children?
Can anyone throw light on the stories?
