The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

James David Douglas asked if George Douglas of Accomack Co, Virginia was related to our Edward. No. I believe that line has been traced back to its origins. James David asked me about Thomas Hunt. I am a direct descendant of Thomas HuntIII, will 1719, Northampton Co, by his 2) wife Smart Tankred. Smart  Hunt, widow of Thomas Hunt, mar William Webb. It so happens Thomas and Smart named their first son, Hillary. I descend from Thomas Hunt IV, his second son.

Have you considered DNA testing.  Autosomal testing might provide some help to those trying to connect to the line of Edward Douglas as well to those searching your Hunt line as well.   I did the testing knowing it might not lead to an immediate breakthrough but at some point in time I think it may be of great value to my descendants

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?
