The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

My name is Catherine Warren Steveley. I am the daughter of Olive Douglas Kelley and Warren Arthur Steveley. 

Mother, Olive Douglas Kelley, was the daughter of Olive Douglas Maltby, daughter of Julius Maltby and Harriet Jewett Fowler; Julius Maltby was the son of Douglas Fowler Maltby, the son of Julius Maltby who married Melinda Fowler, the daughter of Olive Douglas, the daughter of Col. William Douglas, the son of Lt. Col. John Douglas who married Olive Spaulding. Lt. Col. John Douglas was the son of Deacon William Douglas (1672), the son of Deacon William Douglas (1625).

That makes me 10 generations down from the oldest relative that I know of: Deacon William Douglas, born 1625 in North London, and he died in 1724 or 25 in Milford, Ct.

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?
