A collection of historical and genalogical records
I am unsure of how to do all of this so here is the best that i can fill in i have traced back and forth to try to make sure this information is correct and make sure that this is indeed my lineage.
The first known douglas in my line is:Archibald Douglas b. 1503 Glenbrieve, Scotland d. Sept.29,1570 married Agnes Keith 1503-1548 they had William Douglas b.1532 Glenbervie, Scotland who married Egidia Graham they had William Douglas 1554-1611 (10th earl of Angus) who married Elizabeth Oliphant 1558-1619 they had William Douglas 1589-1660 (11th Earl of Angus) he married Mary Gordon 1610-1674 and they had William Douglas 1634-1694 who married Anne Hamilton 1634-1716 ( William became Douglas-Hamilton) they had William Douglas 1659-1688 who married Christian Jargon b.1660 Now is where it becomes confusing in the records. They had a child named John Douglas 1695-1788 he was born in Scotland and came to the U.S. he married Eunice Ratliff Rattleleaf and they had John Douglas 1722-1779 who married Mary Braley 1730-1788 they had John Douglass (and here is the first occurrence of a double S in Douglas) he married Lydia Southworth 1759-1846 and they had Warren Douglass 1786-1842 he married Rhoda Thrasher 1792-1843 and had Philander Philadelphia Douglass 1823-1889.
