It has been awhile but since I am unable to get out and do library
searches, etc., I am posting again to all the sites I can.
I am trying to find the father of Bryant DOUGLAS b. 1811 in
Tennessee. Abt 1834, he married Mary STARNES b abt 1812. Bryant
DOUGLAS was last found on the 1880 Census Rutherford County. So, I am
assuming he died between 1880 and 1890. His death could be registered in
either Rutherford or Coffee County, TN.
Bryant DOUGLAS is the son of one of the two below listed gentlemen.
1) Thomas DOUGLAS (son of John DOUGLAS) b 1780, in Northumberland
County, VA who, after migrating through Bedord,Richmond and and Northumberland
counties in Virginia, to either Orange or Caswell County, NC, married
Edith Thompson on Feb 29, 1804 in Johnston County, NC. Then they came
to Tennessee. He was first found in TN on the 1830 Census of Rutherford
County. He lived close to Bryant and Bryant had bought some land from
him. There are other things to lead me to believe this could be the
father of Bryant Douglas.
Berryman DOUGLAS (son of Joseph) b. Abt 1785 in Fauquier Co., VA. Joseph
DOUGLAS was born in Charles Co, MD and has been found in Botetout,
Stratford and Westmoreland Counties in Virginia. Berryman DOUGLAS
married Susannah Bailes on October 19, 1808 in Grainger Co., TN. They
moved then to Rutheford County where she died and he then married (2)
Polly Maxwell. Berryman was first found on the Rutherford County Census
in 1820 with two male children. one 0-10 yrs old. one 10-16. We are
assuming the one 10-16 could be Bryant who was born in 1810-11. There are other things to lead me to believe he could also be the father.
