As you can see there is not a lot I know about George or Jane in Scotland. And certainly less about George in the United States.
I have not found any death records, certificate or tombstone for George or John Douglass either.
Jane is buried with her son Harry B and wife Elizabeth in Alliance Stark co., Ohio. No mention of either husband in her obituary. (very odd)
I did not find them in the 1861 UK Census. Assuming that they married before Harry was born, they may have only married in 1860-61 and not 1856 (1856 was a guess just putting it at 20 years after his birth - but that is up in the air too)
Jane's second husband John was born in 1825 so George could also be a lot older than I think. I used 1835 so that he was older but closer to Jane's age......... I know I know assuming!!!
When did they come to America? When? and through what port? I am thinking New York or is there a port in New Jersey? Second child was first child born in America and of all places but New Jersey. So I need to review the ports of entry and see what might work for this family.............
So many questions and no answers yet................
