[DOUGLAS] Douglas family of Scotland to Va to Ky md Adams
I am trying to find "documentaion" on this family listed below. If this is
your family and you can or are willing to contact me I'd appreciate it so
very much. Iam told that William Douglas was b bef. in Glencaim, Scotland
and that he married Grisheald Macleand..... but try as I might .........I
CAN FIND NO PROOF of this. NO court records or anything but information of
their existence on internet sites.....Can anyone or would anyone be willing
to help me find any documents that might be housed somewhere.
WILLIAM DOUGLASS was born Bef. 1671 in Glencaim, Scotland. He married
GRISHEALD MACLEAND. She was born Bef. 1675.
Child of WILLIAM DOUGLAS and GRISHEALD MACLEAND is:
2. i. JOHN BRUCE2 DOUGLAS, b. Abt. 1697, Edinburgh, Scotland; d. 1794.
.........my ancestor.......does anyone have documentation that he was the
son of the parents given and does he have a will, or marriage bond?
Generation No. 2
2. JOHN BRUCE2 DOUGLAS (WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1697 in Edinburgh,
Scotland, and died 1794. He married JUDITH MOORMAN, daughter of CHARLES
MOORMAN and ELIZABETH REYNOLDS. She died in Preceded her husband in
death..............Does anyone know if there is a marriage bond or will for
John Bruce Douglas and/or his wife?
Notes for JOHN BRUCE DOUGLAS:
The present descendants of this family use only one "s" but originally the
name was spelled with the two, "ss" as is shown in many documents of record.
JOHN DOUGLAS was kidnapped when a baby and brought to VIRGINIA. The exact
date of his birth is not known, but from circumstance it seems he was born
about 1700 or a little earlier. He was born in Scotland and was in the line
for an Earldom.
IS there any proof of this....kidnapping?
Who brought JOHN to VIRGINIA is not known, or where he first lived in
VIRGINIA. There was a DOUGLASS FAMILY in NEW KENT, CO., in 1670 or 1689 and
it may be that JOHN lived there. He became a citizen of SPOTSYLVANIA CO.,
VA and acquired land from a MR. CURTIS in 1731. Later this land was in what
became ORANGE CO., VA (1734).
JUDITH MOORMAN (daugher of CHARLES and ELIZABETH MOORMAN) was a a QUAKER
and married JOHN DOUGLAS about 1751. Their children's births were
registered in QUAKER RECORDS...........IF anyone has a copy of these records
may I PLEASE pay you for a copy of them??
When John died, his "WILL" was filed and probated in ORANGE CO., VA and
from this "WILL" we have given the married names of his DAUGHTERS. JOHN'S
SONS lived in ALBEMARLE CO., VA (just across the ORANGE CO., VA line) and
from "THE HISTORY OF ALBERMARLE CO" by REV. EDGAR WOODS more information was
gleaned.........IF anyone has a copy of this may I please buy one and pay
you for your trouble.
In BARBOURSVILLE, VA....(ALBEMARLE CO.) there are DOUGLASS DESCENDANTS
living as of AUGUST, 1960.
JOHN'S "WILL" was found in WILL BOOK #3, pp 307-309.....ORANGE CO., VA.
He said CHARLES DOUGLAS was his ELDEST SON. (Why she puts the "2" Charles's
name, I do not know) So for my purpoes this line would run as follows"
JOHN DOUGLAS born about 1700 in SCOTLAND DIED 1794
married JUDITH MOORMAN, about 1731 in ORANGE CO., VA
1. CHARLES DOUGLAS,Sr... born April 29, 1732 died 1823 md ANNA ADAMS (d/o
ROBERT ADAMS and MOURNING LEWIS.)...........I AM DESCENDED FROM THIS LINE
BUT I HAVE NO DOCUMENTATION OF MARRIAGE OR WILL, OR DEEDS......if anyone had
these documentation please contact me and I will pay you for copies.
2. ELIZABETH DOUGLAS born April 18, 1733 married MR. EATON or EATEN
