PREFACE. 



The study of history is productive of much that is of a 
noble and elevating character. It is natural for all to desire to 
know something of the country whence his ancestors sprang, as 
well as of his native land ; and is it not of vastly more inter- 
est for one to be able to tell who his ancestors were and something 
of the history of their struggles, progress and honors ? It is a 
custom handed down to us from the patriarchs of old, who 
were very careful to preserve and cherish the memory of their 
departed. The children of Israel were charged to carry the 
bones of Joseph and have them deposited in the Holy Land. 
It is a duty we owe posterity to leave a record of the deeds 
of our generation. 

From my earliest. recollecti9n I have desired to know who 
my ancestors were, where they lived and what they did. In 
1867 I began this work, not thinking to extend it beyond the 
limits of my grandfather and his immediate descendants ; but 
I became so interested in the subject that I concluded to con- 
tinue the research still further. I had often heard my father re- 
late the story of John, the ancestor of our branch in America, who 
was born in Scotland, and at the age of twelve years was kid- 
napped in London and brought to Boston and who subsequently 
married and settled in Middleboro, Mass. and was the father of 
three sons, Elijah, John and George. Elijah settled in Maine. 

One hundred and twenty years had now elapsed since Elijah 
or his descendants had heard from his brothers or their pos- 
terity. I felt a natural desire to learn of their whereabouts. 
Through the kindness of the clerk of Middleboro, I was en- 



VI PREFACE. 

abled to open a correspondence with the descendants of those 
two brothers scattered throughout nearly every state in New 
England. 

I have devoted the greater part of two years to gathering 
and writing the matter for this work. Nearly the entire copy 
has been written three times and carefully corrected ; yet in a 
work of this kind I am aware that accuracy is quite impossible. 
I have searched town and church records and have sought in- 
formation in all ways possible. 

Had this Genealogy been commenced twenty years earlier 
much information could have been obtained which has now been 
lost by the death of those who possessed it. 

Many family records have either been lost or were never 
kept and in a few instances the writing was not legible and thus 
mistakes may have occurred. Still it affords me much satisfac- 
tion to be able to present this volume so completely to my numer- 
ous relatives. 

In some families names have been transposed, parents send- 
ing them one way and children another. Thus Nancy Amanda 
has been changed to Amanda Nancy. I have endeavored in all 
cases to arrange names correctly and acceptably to all con- 
cerned. 

In the matter of individual biography I have carefully ex- 
amined all that has been received and have used what was 
deemed of interest to the reader, and would have been pleased 
to have inserted more had it been received. 

The genealogical history of the Douglas Nobility was taken 
from the Peerage of Scotland, written in 1764 by Bobert Doug- 
las. There are many different records of the origin, name and 
history of the family, yet they all have their rise from the one 
source and it is reasonable to believe that this account is au- 
thentic. 



PREFACE. Vll 

As to the correct way of spelling the name, I find in use 
Duglas, Douglas and Douglass. From all accounts of history, 
aB well as of heraldry, the original way of spelling the name is 
generally spelled Douglas. 

Every person has the privilege of spelling his name as he 
chooses. As far as known, I have written each name as it has 
been received. Previous to the fifth generation the name was 
Duglas or Douglas. 

The coat-of-arms was obtained from Scotland through the 
heraldry oflSce in New York and minutely compared with works 
on the subject and found to be the proper arms for all bearing 
the name, without regard to the branch to which they belong. 

In my researches in this work, I have come across several 
branches of this great Douglas tree. The one known as the 
Stephen A. Douglas branch is numerous in Connecticut. Their 
genealogy has been published by Mr. Charles H. James Doug- 
las of Providence, E. I. The Francis Douglas branch is to be 
found in Gardiner, Hallowell and that vicinity. A branch is 
also found in Gorham, Sebago and Windham. 

The reader must know that , much time and not a little 
money has been used in compiling this genealogy. It has been 
a labor of love and not one for gain, for if I realize enough to 
pay the expense I shall be satisfied. 

In preparing this volume I have formed very many pleasant 
acquaintances among relatives whom I should not otherwise 
have met. 

My sincere thanks are tendered to all who have in any way 
aided me in this undertaking.

THE DOUGLAS NOBILITY, 



The following genealogical history of the Douglas 

nobility of scotland was taken from robert 

Douglas Peerage of Scotland, written A. D. 

1764 



If a long train of illustrious ancestors distinguished 
by the highest titles and connected with the most august 
and noble families in Europe, can make any name re- 
markable and great, there is no subject that can plead 
a higher claim than the Douglas ; but it is the least part 
of the glory of this family that it has been honored with 
alliances by marriage into the first rank of nobility in 
Scotland, England and France. Having matched eleven 
times with the royal house of Scotland, and once with 
that of England. They were more distinguished for 



2 THE DOUGLAS NOBILITY. 

their virtue and merit than by their titles ; and the 
luster of their actions outshown the splendor of their 
birth. Hence we see them leading the van of our 
armies in Scotland, supporting by their valor the king- 
dom of France, tottering on the head of Charles VII, 
when reduced to the last extremity by the bravery of 
the English ; with many other acts of military glory 
that have made this family renowned through all Eu- 
rope. 

The traditional account of the origin of this noble 
family, transmitted to us by historians is as follows : 

In the year of our Lord 770, in the reign of Solvath- 
ious, king of Scots, one Donald Bane of the Western 
Isles, having invaded the Scotch territories, and i:outed 
the royal army, a man of rank and figure came season- 
ably with his friends and followers to the king's assistance; 
he renewed the battle and obtained a complete victory 
over the invader. The king being desirous to see the 
man, who had done him so signal a piece of service, 
he was pointed out to him by his color or complexion, in 
these words of the old Gallic or Cettic language Sholto 
Du Glas or Glash in English, ^'Behold that black or 
swarthy colored man,'' from which he was named Sholto 
the Douglas. The king royally rewarded his great 
services, and gave him a grant of several lands and large 
possessions in the country of Lanark, which were called 
Douglas ; and from hence came the sirname of the 
family. 

This Sholto i^ said to have left two sons. 

2 I. Hugh, ancestor of the Douglases in Scot- 
land. 

3 II. William, progenitor oftheScoti Douglasi 
in Italy when he settled. He married the daughter of 



THE DOUGLAS NOBILITY. 3 

Antonio Spetino, a lady of one of the most honorable 
families in that country. 

4 WILLIAM De DOUGLAS, 

said to be lineally descended from the above named 
Sholto, who was created lord or dominus de Douglas 
by king Malcolm Canmore at a conventus procerum held 
in Forfar A. D. 1057: He lived after the year 1100 
and left issue two sons :

las & Burn; lands which lieintheShier of Selkirk, and

He was a man of great note in the reign of king David I. 
and dying about the year 1145, was succeeded by his son 

7 SIR WILLIAM third Lord of DOUGLAS. 

He is found witnessing characters by king David I. and 
Jocelin bishop of Glasgow between the year 1174 and 
1199. He married Margaret, daughter of Eriskinus de 
Kerdal by whom he had six sons and one daughter.

20 II. Hugh de Douglas. 

21 III. Archibald de Douglas. 

19 JAMES eighth Lord of DOUGLAS, 

son of William the Hardy, who was distinguished by 
the name of Good Sir James, and by all our historians 
is allowed to have been one of the greatest heroes of his 
time. He joined king Robert Bruce as soon as he 
began to assert his title to the crown, and assisted at 
his coronation in 1306. He was at the battle of 
Bannockburn where he had no small glory gained 
against the English that day. By a charter from king 
Robert, he obtained possession of all the lands and 
town of Douglas dated at Berwick, April 11, 1329. 

King Robert, finding himself drawing near his end, 
and unable to undertake a journey to the Holy Land to 
perform a (*ertain vow he had made, requested his 
friend. Sir James Douglas that at his death he would 
have his heart embalmed and put in a silver casket, 
and that he should cary it to Jerusalem and bury 
it near our Saviour's sepulcher. Sir James executed the 
arduous task though it cost him his life; for which the 
family got added to its arms argent a man's heart gules, 
ensigned with an imperial crown. 

He was in seventy battles and was victorious in all 
but thirteen, leaving the name of ••the Black Douglas;" 



6 THE DOUGLAS NOBILITY. 

— SO he was called from his swarthy complexion — as a 
word of fear by which the English mothers stilled their 
children. 

"Hufth ye, hush ye. little pet ye, 
Hnph ye, hush ye, do not fret ye, 
The Blnck Douglas shall not. get. ye." 

He was killed in Spain August 31, 1331, and was 
buried in the church of Saint Bride in Scotland. 

[Some historians say that Sir James was slain by the Moors before 
reaching the Holy Land. All agree that he was killed in Spain A. D. 
August, 31, 1331.] 

20 HUGH ninth Lord of DOUGLAS, 

second son of William the Hardy, was never married ; 
but resigned his lands in favour of his nephew William, 
afterwards Earl of Douglas. 

21 ARCHIBALD Lord of GALLOWAY, 

third son of William the Hardy, was a man of great 
bravery and courage which he gave many proofs in 
engagements with the English. He was a faithful 
friend of king David Bruce. He was appointed govern- 
or of Scotland in king David's absence, and at last lost 
his life in the service of his country A. D. 1333. He

Archibald Lord of Galloway. In 1357 he was created 
Earl of Douglas. It is said that he disputed the succes- 
sion to the Scottish crown with Robert II. but this

seems to be a mistake, for he was a great friend of 
Robert II, and obtained his daughter in marriage with 
his son and performed many noble acts in his country's 
service in that king's reign. He married (1) Margaret, 
daughter of Donald, sister and heiress of Thomas, Earl

fifth Duke of Turenne, son of James and Beatrix

but afterwards lost the royal vavom and appears to 
have entered into a league with the Earl of Crawford 
and others of the nobility, against the King, by whom 
he was stabbed to the heart and died install tly at 
Sterling Castle, February 2, 1452. He married his

war against King James II., as the murderer of his 
brother and kinsman, the sixth and eighth Earls of 
Douglas. The issue seemed doubtful for a time, but 
the Hamiltons and others being gained over to the 
king's side. Douglas fled to England. The castles of 
Douglases were dismantled, and the earldom of 
Douglas came to an end by forfeiture after an existance 
of ninty-eight years during which it had been held by 
no fewer than nine lords. The last Earl lived many 
years in England and was made a Knight of the

DOUGLAS COAT-OF-ARMS. 




THE I>OUGLAS XOBILITY. 19 

EXPLANATION OF THE DOUGLAS A liMS. 

The orignal Douglas arms was a blue shield with three sUrs. 
The imperial heart was added to commemorate King Robert Bruce's 
dying request to the good Sir James Douglas, that he should cause 
his heart to be taken out and embalmed and placed in a silver casket 
and ihat Douglas should carry it to the Boly Land and have it buried 
near the sepulchre of our Savio . •. 

The three stars which the Douglases bear in common with the 
Murries seem to denote the descent of both irom one ancestor. 
1'hey are the heraldic way of showing a spear rowell denoting that the 
dignity of Knighthood has been conferred upon the wearer for fidell.,y. 

The HELMKT is common to all arms, but differ in position, in 
material and shape, according to the rank of «he wearer a Baronet 
has his full front blue. The one the Douglas arms is a simple esquiie 
(ir gentleman. 

The CAP of Maintenance or the cap of triumph, is as historical as 
the cap of liberty, and like the latter has a Kuman origin. It was 
carried before the Ruman generals in their entry into the capital, alller 
their return fiom a successful war. It is turned up with esmine. 

The LAMBREQUIN or SCROLL around the top of the shield belongs 
to the ornamental part of Heraldry and is common to all arms, 
and had its origin in the fact that in the times of the Tournaments 
crusades they formed a cloak around the helmet or head piece, but in 
time the cloak got cut up into shreads and rags by the battle axes 
of the combatiuts, and now in modern days they forai them into ieaf- 
like scrolls. 

The SALAMANDER denotes that the family has flourished amidst 
difficulties, trials and persecutions, that it stands out from and amidst 
the flames of adversity and distruction triumphant. 

The TORTOis cr band which is above the helmet should be whitk 
and BLUE to correspond with the color of the arms. It used to 
be in olden times a roll of ribbons and was used to bind the crest to 
the helmet but in later years it has lost its primitive shape and 
character. 

THE xMOTTO. 

Jamais Arriere, "Mover behind" alludes to the peculiar 
precedence inherent in their earldom of Angus. 

COLOR. 

The two colors in the Douglas arms are bluo for fidelity, a id whiie 
for purity Whit 3 represents «ilve''. 



21) THE DOUGLAS NOBILITY. 

EXPLANATIONS. 

A consecutive numbering runs through the wh >le book, so far as 
the name of Douglas is concerned, beginning with John Dduglas, 
the original emigrant of this branch of the graat family 

This numbering is found t)n the left hand of the page, before the 
name of each individual in the series of his record descendants 
as a child. 

Thus, are found ten children of John D.)uaLAS, numbered from 
108 to 118 inclusive. 

This mark, f immediately following a consecutive number denotes 
that a distinct and additional notice of the person to whom that number 
belongs is reserved for a separate an 1 subsequent paragraph. The 
place where this occurs may be found by looking for the same 
consecutive number like this 114: immediately preceding the name to 
which it belongs. Thus, Isaac Douglas, whose consecutive number is 
114, is afterwards foun^ as the head of a family. 

Only one consecutive number belongs* to an individual. 

By means of this, and several indexes at the end of the volu ne, 
any person and his ancestry and posterity are easily found. 

If there be occasion to mention an individual elsewhere, his place 
in the series is indicated by his consecutive number in brackets : 
thus [311]. 

A small figure after a name and just above the line, thus, Samuel 
Dougla*''' denotes the generation in which the individual belongs, and 
serves in part to distinguish him from others of the same name. 

The name at the head, or parent of each separate family, is found 
at the beginning of the notice of such family printed in CAPITALS. 
It is found convenient to insert immediately after the parent's name, 
the name of his or her American progenitors, thus : Benjamin 
DouoLAS* (JoB,"^ Elijah,^ John ^). 

The families are arranged in the order of seniority, as they occur 
in the second generation - 

When a town is mentioned without naming the state, Maine is to 
be understood, unless the place be universally k\iown. 

When a woman's name occurs in this wise Mary (Braley) Douglas, 
Braley is her maiden name and Douglas the one acquired by 
marriage. 



THE DOUGLAS NOBILITY. 21 

To find the name of an individual recorded in this volume :

o-^ 



First Generation in America, of the Descendants 

OF John Douglas of Middleborough, Plymouth 

County, Massachusetts. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

1 JoHN^ Douglas was born in Scotland about 
the year 1695. His father was a wealthy and 
influential man, possessing a large tract of land, and 
renting a number of houses. John had an uncle, a 
merchant living in London, who wished his nephew to 
go and live with him, promising to make him his heir, 
as he had no children of his own. To this his father 
would not consent ; but the boy, then twelve years of 
age, was so well pleased with his uncle's generous 
offer, that he ran away with the intention of going to 
him. On reaching London he could not find his 
uncle; so he strolled down about the wharves, as a 
little boy would naturally do. There lay in port a 
man-of-war nearly ready for sea. The boy attracted 
the notice of the crew who, taking advantage of his 
being alone and unprotected, pressed him on board 
the ship and concealed him till they were well out to 
sea. The vessel was bound for Boston, and arrived 
there in due time. John was sold or put out to a man 
till he should become of age, in a consideration of a 
sum of money required to pay his passage. Whom ho 



THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. . 23 

lived with or how he fared during the remainder ot 
his minority is not known. Neither is it known 
that his father ever knew what became of his lost son. 
We next hear of John in Middleborough, Plymouth 
County, Mass., where about A. D. 1719, he married 
Eunice Rattleleaf (or RatlifFe) of that town. They 
settled on a farm he bought of John Bennett, Jr., 
containing thirty-seven acres, for the sum of thirty 
pounds. The farm was situated in the Township of 
Middleborough, Mass., being in the 134th lot in the 
third allotment in the purchase known as the sixteen 
shilling purchase. The deed bearing the date of May 27, 
1739. They*always resided on this farm, where they 
died at an advanced age, and were buried in the town 
graveyard. 

The children of John and Eunice (Rattleleaf) 
Douglas born in Middleborough, Mas*^., were : 

2 I. fKuJAH^ born about 1720; married Ist, Phebe Taylor; 
2iid, Elizabeth Estes. 

3 II. fJoHN'^ bor:i about 1722; married Mary Braley. 

4 III. t^KORGK- born about 1724 or 5; maiTied Patience Cas- 
well. 



SECOND GENERATION. 

2. Elijah* Douglas (John I) eldest son of John 
and Eunice (Rattleleaf) Douglas, was born in Middlebor- 
ough, Mass., about .\. I). 1720; married, first, April 
27, 1742, Phebe Taylor Married by Benjamin Ruggles, 
Esq. They settled in his native town. They had born 
unto them three sons and two daughters. His wife, the 
eldest son and two daughters died and in the year 1751, 
he, with his surviving sons, bid adieu to the land of their 
birth, to find a home in the wilds of the district of Maine. 



24 THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 

They pursued their journey east as far as Falmouth where 
it appears they remained a short time. The same year 
he bought in company with Benjamin Winslow, one-half 
of New Uamariscove Island, (now either Haskell or 
Bailey's Island) lying in Casco Bay, in the Township 
of North Yarmouth (now Harpswell,) for the sum 
of seventy-six pounds thirteen shillings and four pence, 
lawful money. The Island was purchased of Jonathan 
Preble, of Georgetown. The deed bears date of January 
30, O. S. 1750-51, recorded in the Register of Deeds 
Office in York County, Book 29, page 90. 

He marfied (2) Elizabeth, daughter of Edward 
and Patience Estes, born in Hanover, Plymouth County, 
Mass., April 7, 1731. At the time of their marriage 
she was residing with her parents at North Yarmouth 
(now Harpswell). They settled on a farm of forty three 
acres, which he bought of Mary Hais, the estate of 
Richard Hais, deceased, situated on Merryconeag Neck, 
(now Harpswell Neck.) 

The deed was granted July 5, 1757. There has 
been added to the farm sixty acres of land ; and the 
old log house which stood near what is known as 
Hais' Brook, in which were born unto them five sons 
and three daughters, has given place to two successive 
framed houses, which were built on the main road. 
The farm is now owned and occupied by Henry 
Merryman. Elijah did a large business in chopping 
and shipping cord wood from Birch Island to Boston. 
Tradition informs us that he was a great worker and a 
very powerful man with the axe; that on one occasion, 
having been disappointed in his help, and wisliing to 
complete the loading of the vessel, he chopped seven 
cords of wood in one day. In 1775, he removed to 



THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 25 

the Township of Royallsborough (now Durham,) where 
he bought and settled on the farm known as the John 
Plummer farm; where traces of the cellar where his 
old house stood, are still to be seen. 

He owned all the land now included in the farms 
owned by Thomas Philbrook, John Plummer and 
Alexander Ewing. He also owned other farms, 
and was quite forehanded for those days. He wis 
the first of the name that joined the society of Friends, 
having united with them at Falmouth, June 29, 1754, 
and continued a member for many years; but was 
subsequently disowned, on account of his going to 
law with a member of the society, contrary to their 
discipline. He weighed two hundred pounds and was 
five feet ten inches in heighth; of large muscular 
frame, and possessed all the characteristics of his 
Scottish ancestry. He was totally blind ten years 
previous to his death. 

He passed the latter part of his days in the family 
of his son J(»seph where he died in the year 1814, 
aged 94 years, and was buried near the Friend's 
meeting house, in Durham.

1722. About the year 17*^1, he married Mary Braley, 
and settled in his native town, on a farm situated near 
what is known as the Beech Woods. He bought the 
said farm of Mark Haskell, a tanner, for twenty-seven 
pounds of old tenor. The farm consisted of one-half part 
of the eighty-sixth lot of land in the third allotment 
of the sixteen shilling purchase. The deed bears date 
of February 10th, 1746. At the breaking out of the 
Revolutionary War, he volunteered his services in his 
country's defence. He was in the battle of Bunker 
Hill. Sometime during the early part of the war he 
was taken sick with the camp disorder, from which he 
never recovered. He died at his home in Middle- 
borough, and was buried in the grave-yard in that 
town. After his death his widow lived with her son 
John, at Plymouth, Mass., where she died about 1788, 
and was buried in the grave-yard at Half Way Pond,

THIKD GENERATION. 

6 Daniel^ Douglas, (Elijah^ John/) son of 
Elijah and Phebe (Taylor) Douglas, was born in 
Middleborough, Mass., 1747; married June 9th 1779, 
Sabry Russell of Duxbury, Mass. He settled in the 
town of Brunswick on a farm situated on what is 
known as Kincaid Hill, on the road leading from 
Brunswick village to the Friend's meeting house in 
Durham. 

^In 1797, he removed on a farm near Ring's Corner 
in the town of North Yarmouth, (now Freeport,) 
where he built a log house in which he and family 
lived many years; and then he built him a framed 
house. This, however, was not plastered during his 
lifetime. When a young man, while assisting at the 
raising of a frame for a building, he fell, striking upon 
his face and putting out both of his eyes, 'i'his 
accident occurred previous to his marriage, depriving 
him of the pleasure of seeing his wife and children. 
The old gentleman and his wife were in the practice of 
visiting among their friends with a cow, they called 
old Brindle, harnessed to a sled for a team. He was 
not a professor of religion, though a very good and 
kind man, and upright in all his dealings. The date 
of his or his wife's death is not know^n. 

He was buried in the grave-yard near Friends' 
meeting house in Durham. 

Their children all born in Brunswick were : — 

28 I. t Cornelius,* born Sept. 19th 1780 ; married 
Hannah Whittemore. 

29 II. t N ABB Y,* born 1782 ; married J ^mes Welch. 

30 III. t Annie,* born 1784; married Samuel Grouse or 
Groves.

32 V. t PHEBE^born 1792; married 8amuel Grouse. 

33 VI. t Daniel * born August 1796 ; married Sarah Bailey. 

7 CoRiSELius^ Douglas, (Elijah,^ John/) brother 
of the proceeding and son of Elijah and Phebe (Taylor) 
Douglas, was born in Middleborough, Mass., Sept. 12, 
1749. His mother died when he was an infant, and 
when only two years old his father together with him- 
self and brother Daniel, removed to the town of 
Falmouth, Maine, where they remained a short time, 
then removed and settled on Merryconeag, now 
Harpswell Neck, which at that time was a wild and 
comparatively unsettled tract of land belonging to the 
town of North Yarmouth. In those early days of the 
history of Harpswell, there was but little cleared land 
for mowing fields, consequently, the farmers found it 
necessary to obtain fodder for their stock in other 
localities. Cornelius, in company with several young 
men, went into the interior about twenty-five miles in 
search of grass. They found a small tract of land 
clear of timber, where the beavers had formallv built 
a dam across a small stream overflowing several acres. 
The dam had been partially torn away by hauling 
masts over it which drained the meadow, causing the 
wild grass to grow in great abundance. These young- 
men cut and stacked a supply of this ; then retracing 
their steps, guided only by spotted trees, they returned 
home reaching there late in autumn. They then 
provided themselves with the necessary articles for 
camp life, drove their father's cattle to their newly 
discovered territory, where they built a rude camp for 
themselves and a hovel for the cattle. They spent 
their time in tending the stock and making baskets; 
thus the winter passed quite pleasantly. It was by 



30 THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 

these frequent visits to the back woods, that Cornelius 
chose his future home. At the early age of eighteen 
he married, Nov. 10, 1767, Ann, daughter of Edward 
and Patience Estes, (a sister of his step-mother,) born 
in Hanover, Mass., March 14, 1735. He resided in 
Harpswell until 1773, when he bought one hundred 
acres of wild land of the proprietors of the Pejepscot 
purchase for the sum of twenty-six pounds thirteen 
shillings and four pence, lawful money. His land was 
situated in the township of Royallborough, (now 
Durham.) The deed was given by Belcher Xoyes 
Esq., of Boston, agent for the proprietors, Dec. 10, 
1776. Upon this farm he built the fifth log house in 
the township. It was situated upon a little hillock 
some distance from where the highway now is. There 
are traces of the house still to be seen. His wife died 
Jan. 28, 1790. June 23, 1791, he married (2) Lydia, 
daughter of Joshua and Elizabeth Buifum, of Berwick. 
They had born unto them four sons and three daughters. 
The youngest daughter occupied the old homeste^ad till 
her death. The old log house, after doing good service 
Avas taken down, and a framed one built nearer the 
road. And a few years since this was rebuilt still 
nearer the road, and in a more modern style. Cornelius 
was an acceptable member of the society of Friends 
and universally esteemed by the communit}^ where he 
resided. He died at his homestead June 20,' 1821. 
His wife survived him a few years and died August 
31, 1837. They were buried in the Friends' grave- 
yard at South Durham.

JSTov. 20th, 1781. The lot was known in the first 
division of one hundred acre lots as No. 5 and 12; as 
the road passed through the farm, one-half in No. 5 
and one-half in No. 12.. On this lot he built a log 
house, which was of necessity the style of dwellings in 
iise by the pioneer of Maine. In building his house 
he invited the neighbors to assist him^ who laid up the 
walls in a half day; they supposing they where giving 
their labor, but Joseph insisted upon paying each one, 
which he did. Several, successive houses have been 
erected upon this homestead farm and it. has changed 
owners many times; it is now owned and occupied by 
Mr. Albert Booker, whose grandmother was a sister 
of the sub^ject of this notice. 

As a farmer, Joseph was successful. He marketed 
his produce at Brunswick Village, and by his frequent 
visits to that place made the acquaintance- of the 
president of Bowdoin College, who became much 
interested in the young man. One day the students 
thought to have some sport with the young country- 
man, as he was dressed in his course homespun 
suit, his pants several inches too short which gave 
him a verdant appearance. They ridiculed and 
laughed at him for some time while the young farmer 
quietly bore all their insults and jeers; then with his 
ready wit and great flow of language silenced his 
opponents. 

He was a powerful preacher in the Society of 
Friends, and much of his time and energies were 
devoted to the cause of Christ. Though his education 
was very limited yet he possessed natural ability 
which together with his deep piety made him a noble 
and useful man of his dav. He made numerous

religious visits to different states holding meet- 
ings among friends and others with wonderful 
results. His last sickness was short but severe, 
during which he often conversed with friends and 
relatives in regard to his readiness and the prospect 
of the great change which awaited him. He said, 
"I have not from the first of my sickness seen the 
least thing to hinder my change. I see no cloud in 
my way." To his wife he said, "Thou wilt have many 
afflictions to pass through but keep under the power 
of truth and it will make way for thee as it has done 
for me.'' At another time he said. '^Oh! that I may 
be preserved in patience to wait my change, I have 
no desire to stay. The prospect looks so clear in 
respect to my going. I have peace — sweet peace 
indeed." He often expressed deep solicitude for his 
children, that they might be kept from the sins of the 
world. He departed this life December 22nd, 1821, 
and was buried in the Friends' hurrying ground at 
South Durham.

The pangs of death, ala**, he's felt ; 
That awful scene he's passed through, 

Which must be passed by me and you.

Which so alarmed his loving friends 

That for a surgeoii they did send.

He Wiis not long on earth to live : 
It was (jiod's will that he should go 

And leave this world of care below. 

September tenth on Sabbath day 

The spirit left this breathless clay ; 
In Jesus Christ he put his trust, 

In hopes to live among the just.

O, parens dear, pray kiss ihe rod, 

Consider it is the hand of God, 
Which hns bereft thee of thy son, 

'Tis but the will of God that's done. 

We must resign to God and say 

That He has given and took away. 
He made and lent him unto you, 

God is almighty, just and true. 

God visits thee with many woes. 

And trials great we may suppose ; 
Pray to the Lord that he will give 

Thee patience whilst thou here doest live. 

To brothers kind and sisters dear, 

You're left to drop a pitying tear ; 
But let those fountains cease to flow, 

Set not your hearts on things below. 

Your brother now is dead and gone. 

And unto you he cannot return : 
Unite and live in peace and love. 

And serve the Lord that reigns above. 

15 JoHX^^ Douglas, (John,^ John/) son of John 
and Mary (Braley) Douglas, was born in Middleborough, 
Mass., Marchll, 1752; married, 1776, Lydia South 
worth, born June 12, 1759. Early in life he fitted 
himself for a school-teacher. He taught a district 
school in his native town fifteen winters in succession. 
Soon after the breaking out of the Revolutionary war, 
he went to Boston and volunteered his services in the 
army. He was an Orderly Sergeant, which office he 
held until the end of his enlistment. He was paid oif 
in continental money, which will be remembered was 
nearly worthless. He had to pay sixty dollars of it 
for a gallon of molasses, and one hundred dollars for a 
pound of tea. He was afterwards drafted, but not 
wishing to serve longer in the war, he gave a cow to a 



THP: DOUGLAS GEXEALOGY. 43 

man to ^o as his subslitute. About the year 1786, he 
moved to Plymouth, Mass., and settled in the neigh- 
borhood known as the Halfway Pond. There were but 
few inhabitants there at that time, and no schools within 
several miles. He was the first man who interceded 
and raised money to start a school; and all that 
could be collected was thirteen dollars. For this sum 
he taught a school during the winter months of that 
year. After the death of his father, he removed to the 
old homestead, which was given him in consideration 
of his taking care of his mother during the remainder 
of her life; also to have the care and support of his 
youngest brdther and sister until they became of age. 
In 1804, he removed to Clyden, N. H., where he 
resided three years, then removed back to Plymouth, 
where he lived until his death. He was a worthy 
member of the Baptist church, and was much respected 
by those who knew him, for his genial disposition and 
integrity; so honest and upright was he in all his 
dealings, that he was called "John the Baptist.'' He 
died in the year 1827, and was interred in the grave- 
yard near the Halfway Pond.

where he resided until 1800, at which time his wife 
died and the following year he married his second wife, 
and moved to Troy, Maine. In 1810, he removed to 
Winterport; and the same year to Monroe. He was 
quite a thrifty farmer. He also devoted some of his 
time to hunting. In 1814, when the English invaded 
Hampden, Elisha was called out with the militia, who 
were in charge of General Blake, to oppose the enemy. 
The army was brought into line, and Gen. Blake rede in 
front, and forbade their firing until they received 
orders. By this time the British had landed. Elisha 
chose his ground and commenced action; firing a 
number of rounds before he was discovered. When 
the enemy saw the smoke they fired and wounded him 
in the arm, by which cause it was ever afterwards stifi^, 
and he received a pension for his disability. In 1830 
or 31, he removed to Burnham, where he died in the 
year 1851. His (2) wife died Feb. 1868.

a young man of promise, and had acquired a good edueatioD, 
but alas, his hopes were suddenly blasted. While quite young 
in years he was attacked with rheumatism, and so severe was 
this disease that he was unable to even feed himself. For 
many years he was confined to his bed. A traveling quack doctor 
came along and made his parents believe that he could cure him ; but 
his medicine made him worse and he soon died nbout 1833. The 
doctor gave him saltpetre which caused his death. His mother took his 
death hard, though he had been a great sufferer.

30 Edward* Douglas, (Cornelius,'^ Elijah,^

well, June 30, 1770. His early years were passed on 
his father's farm where he acquired the habit of in- 
dustry and perseverance which ever characterized him 
in life. April 29, 1794, he bought of Samuel Thomp- 
son, of Topsham, thirty-three and one-third acres of 
unimproved land, for which he paid the sum of twenty- 
two pounds, two shillings and three pence, lawful 
money. This parcel of land was situated in the town- 
ship of Brunswick, on the Freeport line, commencing 
with the standing trees. He cleared a few acres the 
first year, which he planted with corn, and harvested 
one hundred bushels of shelled corn. He hired a girl 
for one dollar per week to do the husking. He built 
no buildings on the place, and owned it but a few 
years, then sold it. He bought of Robert McManus 
one hundred acres of land in Brunswick, on which 
were a small clearing and a log house, for which he 



THE DOUGLAS GEXEALOGY. 55 

paid five hundred dollars, lawful money. The deed 
was given June 26, 1798. It appears from record 
that he occupied this farm a year before the deed was 
given and during the spring made maple sugar. The 
first seed he put into the ground on this farm was 
a pint of apple seeds. 

May 4j 1797, he married Esther, daughter of 
Samuel and Hannah Collins, born in Durham, Febru- 
ary 17, 1770. Soon after their marriage the}^ com- 
menced house keeping in the log house on the farm. 
There were no roads in that part of the town, and he 
procured a pocket compass by which he ran out one 
by spotting trees. A petition was drawn up, signed, 
and presented to the County Commisioners who estab- 
lished a road which is still in use and known as the 
Durham road. 

In 1801, he built a large two story house in place of 
the old log house, where he lived until his death. He 
was an active enterprising man and managed his 
business affairs judiciously. Although he never filled 
any public office, yet he did a great amount of business 
for others. He was distinguished in his day as a 
master carter, and his services were much employed by 
those having buildings and vessels to haul. He was a 
consistant and highly esteemed member of the Society 
of Friends and much respected by the community. He 
died while temporarily absent from home in the town 
of Vassalboro, April 18, 1823, and was buried in the 
Friends' grave-yard near Oak Grove Seminary. 

SeptemberJ^ 1823, all the buildings, fences and roads 
on his widow's farm were burned by the great fire that 
passed over that portion of the town. The boys built 
a camp in the field where they watched and harvested 
the little not destroved by the fire.

months and attending school winters. The advantages 
for acquiring an education were necessarily limited ; still 
by perseverance and good attention to his studies during 
the few weeks of school, he obtained a fair business edu- 
cation for those days. When twenty years of age he took 
a violent cold which so prostrated him, that for more than 
a year he was able to do but little labor. On recovering 
somewhat from his illness he hired the homestead farm of 
Andrew Adams for one year, boarding in his family.

where he made the acquaintance of Jane, daughter of 
Andrew and Ruth (Lufkin) Adams, born in Royallsbo- 
rough, now Durham, October 22, 1794; whom he mar- 
ried at the Friends' meetinghouse in Durham, June 11, 

1818. 

He bought a farm of fifty acres in Brunswick, of 
Gideon Toothaker, for which he paid the sum of seven 
hundred dollars. The deed was given April 11, 1817. 
September, 1823, he lost one thousand dollars worth of 
property by the great fire, which burnt nearly everything 
before it for a mile in width and five miles in length ; his 
barn, well filled with hay and grain, wood, chopped in 
the woods, and all his fences were swept away by the 
conflagration. The following year he sold the farm and 
bought Andrew Adams' homestead, situated near Plum- 
mer's Mill, in Durham, where he resided until 1835, at 
which time he sold out to Henry Plummer, and bought a 
farm of one hundred acres, of Caleb Jones, lying on the 
Androscoggin River, in Durham, where he resided till his 
death. His wife died February 24, 1838. August 29, 
1839, he married for his second wife, Lucy, daughter of 
Jonathan and Lucy Beal, of Durham. 

Much of his life was spent in poor health ; at one time 
he was unable to do any labor for two years. While 
Providence seemed to frown upon him in depriving him 
of property and health, God's bountiful grace was won- 
derfully bestowed upon him, and through all his trials 
and adversities he was patient and resigned lo the good 
Shepherd, who careth for his flock. 

His parents were members of the society of Friends, 
and their discipline provides that when both parents are 
members of the society, their children are also members,

by birth-right, which was the privilege of the subject of 
this memorial. 

When a boy only fourteen years of age, while alone 
in the barn, he was feelingly impressed with the great 
power and love of God, which filled his young heart with 
joy. He was plainly shown that there was a place of 
misery as well as a place of happiness and bliss. Though 
like Samuel, he did not know it was the voice of God 
speaking to him. Not heeding this impression he soon 
lost sight of it entirely, though always a moral and up- 
right man, and constant in attendance at church. 

When about thirty years of age he was stricken un- 
der powerful conviction of his sins and the need of par- 
don. So keenly was his mind exercised that often in the 
silent watches of the night he vvould retire to some se- 
cluded place and pour out his desire to God in prayer, 
that He would have mercy on his soul. Frequently, 
while in the field about his daily work, he would put up 
a silent prayer to Him, who only could forgive sins. He 
soon felt it his duty to call his family together and read a 
portion of scripture. This was a great cross ; but like 
the psalmist, he thought ''Have I been so long time 
pleading for mercy and am I unwilling to bear this cross ?" 
The following morning he gathered his little family 
around him and read a chapter in the Bible, which so 
affected him that his heart was broken into tenderness. 
Tears of penitence coursed down his cheeks; humbled 
thus, he was willing to fall upon his knees and implore 
God's forgiveness. When he arose, all was light about 
him ; the great Deliverer had spoken peace to his captive 
soul and set it free. 

So punctual was he in the observance of his family 
devotions, that no hurry in business or haste to reach the 



T'HE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. Bl 

tars ever caused hira to neglect this means of gtace. 
Soon after his conversion he commenced to exhort in 
meeting and felt a deep interest fer the salvation of souls* 
He made the journey with horse and carriage to New- 
port, R. I., twice to attend yearly meeting. 

He fi-equently accompanied Thomas Jones, a minister 
among Friends, on religious visits through different States. 
November 21, 1854, he was recommended as a minister 
by the Society of Friends. He labored zealously for the 
Master at home in his own'meeting, as well as in different 
States and in Canada, holding meetings among his own 
society and others, with good results. 

June, 1869, while at work in his cellar, he was at- 
tacked with a severe cold from which he never recovered. 
For eleven years he suffered patiently, perfectly resigned 
to the will of his Heavenly Master. He was never heard 
to murmur or complain. It was pleasant to visit his sick 
room and converse with him. During the protracted 
years of his sickness many travelling Friend ministers 
called on him and would talk with him and engage in 
prayer. At one time he said '*! don't expect to be here 
long but it is well ; it looks peaceful." 

His companion was untiring in her efforts to do all 
she could to comfort him. He had a strong constitution 
which caused him to endure great pain and suffering, and 
thus he lived year after year. 

January 21, 1881, as the sun was sinking behind the 
western horizon and all was hushed to silence and awe 
in his home, his spirit quietly left its tenement of clay 
and was wafted by angels to its rest with Jesus. 

The funeral took place at Friends meeting house in 
Durham. A short sermon was preached by Nathan Doug- 
las [276] from these words, "All the days of my appointed

time will I wait till my change come." — Job 14:14. Re- 
marks were made by several Friend ministers, also by 
Rev. Geo. Plummer, of Lisbon Falls. He was buried in 
the cemetery near Friends' meeting house at South Dur- 
ham. An appropriate head stone marks his last earthly 
resting place. In 1888 his body was disinterred and bur- 
ied in the cemetery near his old homestead.

worthy of note occurred. About the age of twenty-three

Davis, born in Brunswick, July 17, 1795. He settled on 
a farm bordering on China Neck in the town of China; 
here he resided but a few years and then removed to his 
native place in Durham, to live with his parents through 
thfeir remaining years. 

Subsequently his youngest sister married and took 
his place as care-taker of their mother. In 1824 or 1S25 
he with his family removed to North Vassalboro, where 
he worked in a tannery for a man by the name of South- 
worth, until in assisting in taking down a building 
which fell and he with it, breaking one of his arms and 
five ribs, which laid him by over seven months. During 
his illness his wife died leaving him with four small chil- 
dren, the youngest dying soon after at the age of eleven 
months. He married for his second wife, January 21, 
1829, a cousin of his first wife, Chloe Davis. 

About this time he bought a farm in Fairfield of his 
wife's father, residing in the same house where she was 
born. In this house they had born unto them five chil- 
dren, two of them dying in infancy. In the spring of 
1840, he exchanged farms with a man by the name of 
Ward, situated in Palmyra, where he soon removed. 
Soon after his second marriage he and his wife made a 
profession of religion and joined the society of Friends, 
of w^hich they remained worthy members to tlie close of 
life. About the year 1842 he was appointed an elder in 
that society. He was many times called upon to fill im- 
portant positions in civil as well as religious life ; he was 
often chosen arbitrator in the settlement of difficulties 
JHe served his town as selectman one or more years. All 
these positions he faithfully filled ; he was very hospita- 
ble at his home and it was a pleasure for him to entertain 
all Christians without regard to sect. In 1859 or '60,

and settled in Bloomingtou, Clinton County^ Ohio, where

cally, of strong intellectual powers and a very retentive 
memory. He died a triumphant death, having known 
his robes being washed and made white in the blood of 
the Lamb. 

His dying words were "I am going, but I am per- 
fectly happy in Jesus." His wife Chloe, who had been 
a most devoted, loving wife and a faithful, praying mother, 
survived him several years. She died MUy 22, 1881, in 
her eighty-first year and was buried by the side of her

42. Cornelius* Douglas, (Cornelius,^ Elijah,^ John') 
brother of the preceding, was born in Durham, June 12, 
1798; married January 27, 1820, Phebe, daughter of 
John and Abigail (Frye) Nichols, of Berwick, born tlvere 
September 10, 1799. He settled on the old homestead 
where he remained one year, and in April, 1821, he re- 
moved ^nd spttled on a farm that he bought of Caleb 
Nichols, in the town of Winslow, where he resided three 
years. Then he went and lived one year on a farm in 
Vajijsjilboro, known as the Austen farm ; then removed 
back to his farm in AVinslow where he resided until he 
removed to the State of Ohio. In 1831, he was lecom- 
mended to the work of the ministi'y in the society of 
Friends by Vassalboro monthly meeting. His first reli- 
gious visit was made in 1832 to the families of Friends 
and others in the vicinity of Durham monthly meeting. 
This visit brought him back to his native town and to 
mingle for a few days with those he had associated with 
in his youthful days. 

The practice of visiting and holding religious exer- 
cises in Friends' families used to be quite prevalent. In 
1841, Ke visited and held religious meetings in the west- 
ern part of New England, New York. Philadelphia, Ohio 
and a general visit within the limits of Indiana yearly 
meeting of Friends. In 1845, he again made a religious 
visit to the States of Ohio and Indiana, also to Baltimore 
and Philadelphia. In the autumn of 1846, he with his 
wife and youngest daughter removed to Springfield, Clin- 
ton County, Ohio. The following year they removed to 
Richmond, Indiana, w^here he took charge of a Friends' 



66 THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 

Boarding School, for six months. In 1850 he visited 
Kansas and held meetings among some of the tribes of 
Indians. The same year he removed his faniilj' to Kan- 
sas and superintended the Shawne Indian Mission School, 
which position he occupied two years, giving good satis- 
faction. 

' We have mentioned only a few of his many religious 
visits, ini all of which he was well received and in eternity 
many will remember his faithfullabors for the tritth. In 
all his travels of thousand of miles, he never received a 
dollar of remuneration ; choosing to be as Paul said 
"chargeable to no man." He owned a nice farm a few 
miles out of the village of Wilmington, Ohio, which^f- 
forded him a handsome revenue. By his extremely pru- 
dent habits and industry he laid by a handsome fortune. 
In 1855 he attended Friends' Yearly Meeting at 
Plainville, Indiana, and while absent from home took a 
severe cold and it was with great difficulty that he reached 
his home, where he lingered only a few days. He died 
August 7, 1885, and was buried in the cemetery at Bloom- 
ington, Ohio. His wife died November 7, 1886, and was 
buried by the side of her husband.

1819. In the spring of 1840, during a series of religious 
meetings held at the Booker Schoolhouse in Durham, he 
was converted to God and the following July he was bap- 
tized in the Androscoggin River and the same day joined 
the Free Will Baptist church of Durham. In the year 
1841 he bought a farm of one hundred acres in Dover, 
where they settled soon after their marriage. There was 
no house on the farm and he built one in which he re- 
sided until 1847, when he exchanged his farm for a house 
in Orono, where he resided until his death. Previous to 
his marriage he served a few months apprenticeship at 
house joinering with a man in China, which trade he fol- 
lowed through life and by strict attention to it he became 
a good workman. He had charge of building the Metho- 
dist meetinghouses at Waterville and Skowhegan. March 
I, 1862 he was chosen deacon of the Free Will Baptist 
church in Veazie and worthily filled the office to the close 
of life. He was a devoted christian, an active laborer in

ate father. His last sickness was congestion of the brain, 
which deprived him of his senses for the greater part of 
his illness. He died at his home in Orono, December 27,

two years, when they lived with his father. They were 
both members of the Society of Friends. He died of 
typhoid fever January 4, 1866. She survived him a few 
years, taking a deep interest in the welfare of her chil- 
dren, the most of whom she lived to see grow up. She 
was ready at all times and at every one's call to go and 
watch by the sick and administer to their wants and com- 
fort. Her sickness, like that of her husband's, was typhoid 
fever and was of short duration. She departed this life 
at her home on Sunday August 30, 1874. The funeral

March 31, 1847, Elizabeth Ann, daughter of Josiah and 
Elizabeth, Prescott, born in North Berwick July 30, 1823. 
His uprightness of character and strict integrity which he 
possessed strongly manifested itself even in his school-boy 
days. If innocent of a fault, of which he had been ac- 
cused by his schoolmates, he did not rest until the matter 
was corrected. In the fall of 1843, becoming tired of 
farm work, he engaged with Lemuel Jones to learn the 
shoemaker's trade, serving one year. In 1849 he bought 
a small parcel of land of his father, in Durham, for which 
he paid one hundred dollars, on which he built a set of 
buildings. He continued to work at his trade and did 
some farming. In 1854 he sold his house and lot to G.

C. Crosman, and removed to North Berwick where he, in 
company with his brother-in-law, James Hussey, bought 
a shoe store ; but finding the village too small to afford 
sufficient trade for the shop, they sold out the business. 
In 1856 he returned and settled once more in his native 
town where he built another set of buildings, more sub- 
stantial and costly than the first. He and his wife were 
worthy members of the society of Friends and exempli- 
fied a christian life in their daily walks. In 1863 they 
were appointed elders in the society of Friends which so- 
ciety held them in high esteem and frequently chose them 
to important positions of trust. He was elected one of 
the selectmen of the town of Durham for the years 1868- 
9, which office he filled to the general satisfaction of his 
townsmen. In 1869, he removed to Portland, where he 
was employed in A. F. Cox's Boot and Shoe manufactory. 
In 1878 he removed back on his farm in Durham, where 
he spent his last days. He was elected collector of taxes 
for the years 1886-7 and 8. In 1886 he was taken sick 
of a disease which terminated his life April 20, 1888, 
No one had died in his town more lamented. The funeral 
was attended by a large gathering of his friends, some 
coming long distances to pay their last tribute ot respect 
to the deceased. The services were conducted by the 
society of Friends, assisted by ministers of other denomi- 
nations. He was buried in the grave-yard near his late 
home.

1828 ; married, September 30, 1852, Ann Maria Hamblin, 
daughter of Allen and Lydia (Winslow) Hamblin of Wind- 
ham, born there October 12, 182H. When about four- 
teen years of age his father employed a man to shave 
shingles. One day, while the men folks were at dinner, 
John undertook to learn the trade, which attempt came 
near costing him his life. Substituting his knee for the 
clamp, in holding the shingle, he cut a slight gash in it 
with the shave and taking cold in the wound a high fever 
set in and had it not been for the skill of the physician 
he would have lost his leg and probably his life. He re- 
ceived a fair education at the town school. Before he 
became of age he learned the shoemaker's trade of his 
brother George. He settled in his native town where he 
resided till 1853, when he removed to Little Falls, in 
Windham, and bought a cottage where he lived several 
years. After the death of his wife's father, he bought out 
the heirs and removed to the old homestead in Windham 
where he was engaged in farming during the summer and 
worked at his trade winters till his death. He and his 
wife were acceptable members of the society of Friends. 
In 1878 he was made an elder in that society which posi- 
tion he honored by a constant attendance on the means of 
grace.and a devoted christian life. As he had a slender 
constitution the greater part of his life was attended by

ill health, having been a great sufferer for many years. In 
.1880 he was oblifj;ed to give up all labor. He was per- 
fectly resigned and surrendered all earthly hopes and laid 
all upon God's altar. A few months previous to his death 
he awoke his wife in the night, praising God for the great 
joy which filled his soul. From that until his death, he 
enjoyed perfect peace, resting fully in the promises of his 
Savior. Death had no terrors for him. It was comfort- 
ing to converse with him. A few moments before he 
died, raising his hand, he exclaimed, ''Hallelujah, I see 
my home, O, how beautiful! " Then grasping the hand 
of his companion more firmly he uttered his last words, 
''Farewell Annie, farewell Annie," and the last cord that 
bound his spirit to earth was severed and his soul passed 
to its eternal rest on hi^h, July 11, 1881. The funeral 
services were conducted by Charles Varney and were at- 
tended by a large circle of friends. He was buried in the 
Friends' grave-yard near their church in Windham. His 
widow and son now reside at Lisbon Falls.

clerk in a shoe-store for Loran Fisher, one or more years. 
lie also worked clerking for John Ballon and for Josiah 
Burleij^h of Lewiston. The last two stores were for the 
sale of ready-made clothing. In 1855, under the labors 
of Rev. Howard B. Abbott, he experienced religion, was 
baptized and joined the Beacon Street Methodist Episco- 
pal Church at Bath. In the church he was an active and 
zealous laborer and was soon called to serve as class-leader 
and steward. He was President of the Bath Young 
Men's Christian Association two years. In this capacity 
he vvas very active in establishing and sustaining prayer 
meetings and Sabbath schools in tl^e neighboring towns. 
In 1857, he, in company with John L. Spofford, bought 
out John Ballou's clothing store in Bath. This co-part- 
nership proved unfavorable and he sold out to his partner 
and opened a store next north of the old stand, where he 
remainded until Spofford closed out, then he returnded 
to his former place of business where he remained until 
1866, when he sold out and was engaged as clerk in a 
wholesale clothing house in Boston several months. 

He was in trade three years in Lewiston and was 
President of the Lewiston Young Men's Christian Asso- 
ciation for nearly the entire period of time he spent in that 
city. During the War of the Rebellion he was very deeply 
interested in the work of the Christian Commission, going 
from town to town lecturing and collecting money and all 
articles of comfort for the soldiers which he forwarded to 
them. He spent several weeks with the wounded and 
dying soldiers, caring for their many wants and conversing 
with them in regard to the interests of their souls. In 
1869 he removed to Toledo, Ohio, where he was in the 
ready-made clothing business. In 1877 he sold out his

was elected Superintendent of Toledo House of Refuge, 
where he served until the spring of 1880, when he was 
elected Superintendent of the Boys' Industrial School of 
Ohio, where he remained till 1884, when, on account of 
change in the administration, he retired from the office 
and labored in the interest of the Society for the Preven- 
tion of Cruelty to Animals. In 1887 he was again elected 
Superintendent of the Boys* Industrial School. 1889 he 
resigned this position.

and evenings in learning the shoemaker's trade of his 
brother John. In early manhood he took naturally to the 
art of writing and fitted himself for teaching penmanship 
which business he followed during the evening season for 
several years. In 1856 he bought twenty-two acres of 
land of his father (a portion of his homestead farm) for 
which he paid three hundred and fifty dollars. On this

ness he still continues to follow. In 1862, under the 
labors of his cousin, John Henry Douglas [260] he pro* 
fessed saving grace in Christ. He soon afterwards re- 
moved to Bath where he found a warm home among the 
Methodists and he and his wife were baptized and united . 
with the Beacon Street Methodist Episcopal Church. In 
1864 he was appointed class-leader, which position he 
continues to fill. He is also steward and has served as

vantage of some education, such as was afforded in the 
district schools, the academy at Hartland and St. Albans, 
and three years at Friends' Boarding School, Providence, 
R. I. He was early converted and chose to remain in the 
Friends' church where he had a birthright. He felt him- 
self called of God to devote his life to the ministry and 
entered heartily into the work which from the first was 
blessed by the conversion of souls, so that the path of the 
evangelist seemed clearly marked out before him. His 
first labors were in connection with elder ministers until 
1858 he was officially ordained a minister of the gospel 
by the church. He has traveled and labored in the gos- 



THE DOUGLAS <JENEALOGy. 123 

pel in most parts of the United States and Canada, also in 
England, Scotland and Ireland and in many parts of the 
continent of Europe, the result of which has been souls 
for the Master and many churches built up. He also spent 
much time in obtaining money and founding Wilming- 
ton College, Ohio, and for ten years was President of the 
Board of Managers. He spent two years as pastor of the 
Friends' church at Glen Falls, New York, to which souls 
were added every month. He labored as an evangelist in 
Ohio and Iowa until sickness compelled him for a short 
time to stop and seek a climate more .adapted to his health. 
He finally removed with his family to Des Moines, Iowa, 
where they now reside. At the first yearly meeting of 
Friends, after his removal, he was appointed General Su- 
perintendent of pastoral and evangelistic work in its terri* 
tory which includes Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Dakota 
Territory, Nebraska, Washington Territory, Oregon, Cali- 
fornia and Texas, which office he holds at the present 
time as chairman of the church extension board of the

261. Robert Walter^ Douglas, (David,'* Cornelius,'^ 
Elijah,'^ John,^) son of David and Chloe (IJavis) Douglas, 
was born in the town of Fairfield, Maine, November 11, 
1834; married, June 8, 1856, Margaret Ann GifFord. 
His parents moved to Palmyra when he was about six 
years old and in a few years from there to St. Albans. 
He lived at home on a farm at this place until he was 
twenty years of age, except the time spent away from 
home attending school. He attended district school in 
Palmyra, the High School at St. Albans Village, the 
Academy at Hartland Village and was two years at the 
Friends' Boarding School at Providence, R I. When 
about twenty years of age he came to Ohio and engaged 
in teaching. He afterwards returned to Maine where he 
married, after which he again returned to Ohio and con- 
tinued teaching and then, in company with his father, car- 
ried on a country store at Bloomington, in same State. 
About 1862 he moved to New Vienna, Ohio, where he 
resided several years ; carried on a boot and shoe store 
and worked at the bench. It was at this place, in 1864, 
he was recorded a minister in the society of Friends by 
Clear Creek Monthly Meeting. Since then he has been 
actively engaged in preaching the gospel. For some 
years he traveled quite extensively in the northern States, 
made frequent visits to New York and New England, as 
well as laboring extensively in the western States. For 
some time he was city missionary in Cincinnati in con- 
nection with the Children's Home, which was then located 
on Park Street. In 1868 he moved to Wilmington, the 



THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 125 

county seat of Clinton Co., where be was engaged in pas- 
toral work, in connection with the meeting at that place. 
His labors were greatly blessed to the little church at that 
place, which grew from less than seventy-five to six hun- 
dred, the largest meeting of friends in Ohio. While liv- 
ing in Wilmington he was appointed the General Lectur- 
ing Agent of the Peace ^Association of Friends in Ameri- 
ca and in that capacity he visited all the Yearly Meetings 
in the United States, and also delivered lectures in impt)rt- 
ant towns and cities throughout the western, eastern and 
southern States at a time when it required a great deal of 
moral courage to advocate the unpopular cause of Peace 
and Arbitration. In 1873 he went on a religious visit to 
Great Britain, Ireland and the Continent of Europe. He 
was absent from home about a year and a half and was 
warmly received by the Friends where he went. In 1873 
and 4 he visited the principal cities in Europe. After his 
return he was engaged for a year as pastor of Friends' 
church at Kokomo, Indiana. In 1877 he was liberated 
by Indiana Yearly Meeting to go on a religious visit to 
Australia and was the first American Friend who ever 
went out to visit the Friends in that far off land, with a 
message of love from the churches in the United States. 
He also visited on this trip, the Sandwich Islands, New 
Zealand and Tasmania. Retwrning from thence he visited 
California, Oregon and Washington Territory. He re- 
sided at Wilmington about fourtel?n years. In 1886 he 
again visited the principal towns and cities in England, 
Ireland and Wales, being absent from home about eight 
months. For the past eight years, except the time just 
referred to, he has been engaged as the General Super- 
intendent of the Evangelistic, Pastoral and Church exten- 
sion work in Indiana Yearly Meeting of Friends. In 



126 THfi DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 

1882 he organized the West Milton Bank and since that 
time has been the President. His son, D. F. Douglas, is 
cashier and general manager, which relieves him from 
the details of business life so he can devote his entire time 
to religious work. In politics he is a republican, but 
never an active participant, yet always firm in his convic- 
tions. In business be is careful and conservative.

THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 129 

Friends, and by their discipline their children inherit the 
privilege of being members of the Society. 

At the age of twelve, he gave his heart to Christ, 
and for a time enjoyed much of the presence and love of 
the Saviour; but yielding to the temptations incident to 
the youth, he fell back into the world again, and mingled 
freely in the company of the gay and thoughtless. His 
mother's kind words and tears made deep and lasting im* 
pressions upon his young heart. It was during these 
years of waywardness, that the Lord appeared to him and 
called him to go forth and preach the gospel ; but he 
told the Lord that he was but a child and could not speak 
in public. Thus he refused to obey the heavenly call, 
though his duty was plainly made known to him ; and 
many of hi*^ fields of labor were clearly shown him and 
he frequently saw himself in distant parts of the country 
preaching the blessed gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. 
He adds: ''No pen can portray what I passed through 
until I yielded and obeyed the divine call, which was when 
I was twenty-two years of age." 

He at once commenced the work of the ministry at 
the Friends' meetinghouse in his native town. His ser- 
mons were not studied, but delivered with zeal and great 
power, as the Holy Spirit gave utterance. Older minis- 
ters and elders in the society watched over him, fearing 
he was too forward, but he looked not to man, but to Him 
who had called him to the great work, and he pursued 
his labors with such earnestness and fervency that a gen- 
eral awakening was felt among the }Oung people through- 
out the conimunity and many were converted to God. 
Since that day he has been the principal minister among 
Friends at Durham. His labors have been very satisfac- 
tory and great good has resulted from them, which will 



130 THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 

tell in eternity. His sermons are plain and direct to the 
point, never shrinking to declare the whole council of 
God. He has many times been called upon by the good 
Master to visit different States and hold meetings among 
Friends and others, which duty he cheerfully performed' 
and that too without any earthly compensation. On one 
visit he was absent from home nearly a year. He has 
visited nearly every yearly meeting of Friends on this 
continent and many meetings composing them. In all 
this labor he remarks : ^'I am nothing in myself, Christ is 
all my life, my light and my salvation. Glory be to God ! 
Amen." He is respected and loved by all who know him. 
His wife died January 6, 1888.

1819 to 1823 he hired with farmers during summer sea- 
sons and attended school winters. In 1824 he engaged 
with Capt. John O'Brine of Brunswick, to clerk in his 
store. In the fall of the same year he visited Quebec on 
business for his employer. The following winter he went 
to the Lakes at the head waters of the Androscoggin River, 
logging for G. F. Richardson. In the year 1827, he 
bought a tract of wild land in the township of letter B,

land for cultivation and built a set of buildings. In his 
house was built the first brick chimney in the township.

enjoined upon him to labor in the Master's cause as a 
minister, he was ordained to the work and labored earn- 
estly in his own and the adjoining towns ; but his useful- 
ness was destined to be of short duration, for that fatal

lingered a few years and died in great faith and hope of a

second, Elisha Gatchell of Durham ; removed to Raymond

803 IV. Emery« born April 22, 1839. His father died when 
he was four years old and by the advice of friends his mother con- 
sented to have him go and live with Deacon John Whitmore^ a farmer 
living on Bowdoinham Ridge. Here he had but few opportunities for 
attending school, which, however, he improved to the best advantage. 
At the age of fourteen he went to live with his mother, who had again 
married and resided in Durham, where he remained a few years and 
learned the joiner's trade of his step-father, which he worked at sum- 
mers and attended school during the winter months. In the winter of

Owing to a protracted sickness of his father he left 
home at the age of seven years to live with one Lemuel 
Jenkins, a farmer of Bowdoin. He worked on the farm 
summers and received only a few weeks schooling each 
year. In those days nearly every farmer had his ^'little 
brown jug" well filled with intoxicating drink, and it fell 
to his lot to replenish this jug frequently — as often as 
three times a week — from a store some three miles away. 
So disgusted was he with his adopted home and the life 
he was forced to live, that at the age of fourteen he left 
Mr. Jenkins and soon afterwards went and lived with his 
eldest brother, where he remained until he was about 
twenty years of age, at which time he went with Elisha 
Moulton of Canton and learned the cabinet maker's trade, 
remaining with him three years and then went into the 
business for himself in Canton. Soon after his marriage 
he settled in Lisbon but owing to poor health he was 
obliged to give up his trade. He removed to Canton Vil- 
lage and opened a stove and hardware store. In 1842 he 
sold out his store and removed to Buckfield. In 1856 he 
married, second, Mrs. Lydia E. (Willis) daughter of Wil- 
liam Cole of Buckfield and removed to Little River, Lis- 
bon, and opened a dry goods and grocery store. In 1858 
he removed to Cape Elizabeth where he went into trade.

1873. He married for his second wife, August 25, 1879, 
Alice Estelle Lindsay. 

His boyhood was spent at home on the farm till the 
year 1854 : when seventeen years of age he sailed from 
New Bedford in the whale ship Roman, before the mast, 
in which he remained «ix years, returning home after the 
second voyage as second mate. 

In 1860 he went mate ol the schooner Cyclone from 
New York to Portugal, Spain and South America and 



THE DOUGLAS GENEALOGY. 177 

thence to Scotland and England, bringing a cargo of coal 
to Providence, R. I. 

The next few years he made several voyages as 
second mate until 1869, when he went as first mate on a 
vessel sailing from Yokohama to Shanghai, remaining 
one year. He then went to San Francisco and for three 
years served on the Panama Line. He was master of the 
steamer Pacific, which was lost after he took command of 
the Mohongo, which ran on the coast of California as far 
south as San Diego. The Pacific Mail, in whose employ 
he had served eleven years, sold out their line* of steamers 
that ran south, and for two years he was in the employ- 
'ment of the California State Navigation Company as mas- 
ter of the Montana, which ran between San Francisco and 
Mexican ports and the Colorado River. They sailed on 
the night of December 17, 1876, and as Capt. Douglajs 
was going to his room discovered fire coming from the 
after ventilation. Alarm was sounded and immediately 
they turned the vessel and headed for land. They threw 
over seventy packages of powder. In ten minutes the 
ship was one mass of flames. The crew, together with 
forty soldiers and officers, fought the fire bravely, but of 
no avail. They ran the ship ashore and at one o'clock in 
the morning the fore and mainmasts burned and fell over. 
A crew was sent up to the harbor of Guaymas, where the 
American Consul sent them relief. 

Capt. D. then went overland to San Francisco and in 
twenty-four hours after his arrival the company put him 
in command of the steamer Idaho. He left the service of 
this Company to go east and on his return built, in March 
1878, the schooner Rosario, which carried 260 tons cargo 
and sailed the first voyage in June for Mexico. After 
making several voyages he sold the schooner to John D.
