Profile Information

Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
Deacon William Douglass 1609 - 1682 thru his son Robert Douglass m Mary Hempstead. Robert's daughter Elizabeth born 1677 married Stephen Dewolf who died in 1711. They were the parents of two boys Gideon and Stephen. One report - After her remarriage, (to Henry Rowland) she apprenticed her two sons: Gideon, (abt. 1706) age 6 to Peter PRATT a tanner & shoemaker. Stephen (abt. 1708) age 4 was sent to Samuel ELY to be trained as a weaver.
another report - Elizabeth Douglas was bpt. June 17, 1677. She had two dau. by her second husband: Elizabeth and Sary. Elizabeth was married to Rowland when she received her inheritance from her father. Her two sons by Stephen De Wolf were indentured when Gideon was four and Stephen was one. As a result Gideon was trained as a cordwainer, blacksmith, and sawyer. There is a serious study of the family of his wife Deborah (Raymond). Last I heard, it was still in the cellar of the Historical Society. CSM (CSM is C S Maginnis) parentheses are mine. I am in the Gideon DeWolf/Deolph (which eventually became Dolph) line.

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?
