Green-Wood Cemetery, New York - Douglas burials

The amazing Julie has just finished putting in all the Douglases listed in
onto Findagrave.

She kept on running into some Irish Douglases. the last family she did - was 3 brothers, David, Isaac & William and one obit says they were born in Belfast, one of their wives was from Scotland and at least one daughter was born in Scotland. They were born in the 1820s

The original layout for the cemetery was designed by landscape architect David Bates Douglass (1790-1849).  At the request of the board of Greenwood cemetery, his remains were removed there, and an imposing monument raised to his memory on one of the heights nearest the entrance to the cemetery.

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?
