Hi..my 2x GF was Lemuel Douglas b. 1811 in NOrth Carolina USA. He died in Orange County NC 1893 and is buried there..
His children, according to 1880 census, were Susan J, Martha F, John M, Levi W, Joseph Y, Sely A, and youngest, William Andrew Douglas, my 1x great grandfather, whom I was named after.
Lemuel was married to Frances Browning.

I have found in 1755 tax list from Orange County a John Douglas. The 1779 tax list has John Douglas, David Douglas, and William Douglas. None of them have wills that I can locate, only probate files with no family information, outside of of a probate for a John Douglas from 1816 with a widow of Margaret. I don’t know if this is the same John on the 2 tax lists.

I need help past Lemuel. I can’t find out his parents names, and thus, can’t connect him to one of the 3 Douglas’ on the tax lists. Please help if anyone knows anything about these Orange County NC Douglas’s.

Welcome to our group, William

The more that you can tell us about your ancestor, the more likely it is for someone to be able to link to you, and share knowledge,

Yours aye,

William

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?
