The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Dust to Dust - the Ohio Douglas community has disappeared.

Located off State Highway 224 east of Ottoville, in Putnam County, Ohio, Douglas was a small community that sat alongside the Indiana Hi Rail Corporation rail line. The school in Douglas closed in 1920, with the store to follow in the 1930s. There was also a coal yard and a grain elevator. But all have now disappeared.

Who was it named after?

Does anyone have any photographs or records?

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?
