I am currently trying to determine the parents of John Douglas. He was born around 1816 in Tennessee. I have found him (John age 20-30) in the 1840 Census living in Campbell County close to James W. Douglas (age 30-40), Matthew Douglas (age 40-50), Thomas Douglas (age 50-60), Samuel T. Douglas (age 20-30), and William Douglas (age 50-60). I have seen posts that list the children of both Matthew and Thomas which do not include a John born around 1816. I suspect that William Douglas is the father but need more information. Do you have any information on a John Douglas born about 1816. He later married Lucinda Ball and had several children one of which was Elias Douglas.

Thanks in advance for any help,

william douglas

I am a native of Campbell Co. TN. You may be having trouble finding the Douglas you are seeking because there were two families of Douglas's in Campbell Co. According to famly oral history (my ggrandmother was a Douglas), there were two factions of Douglas's which were related way back. One dropped a second "s" to keep from being associated with the other; however, soon they both only had one "s." It is possible that there were two William's at that time. You might try to have one of the researchers in Jellico, if indeed you think your William was in Jellico, search the Douglas Cemetary there to see if there is any sign of a connection. Often families were buried in adjacent plots. Just in case you haven't seen it, you might want to look at the 7-13-00 post from Pat Delk.
