The Barton T. Douglas' of Gainesville, FL

Updated July 19, 2003

About Our Family Research


James Byers Douglas came to Sumterville,Fl from Winnsboro, SC on his honeymoon during the late 1800s. He and his wife, Rebecca Isabel Hicklin, daughter of James Cloud Hicklin and Sarah Rebecca Douglass, bought an orange grove there. After a big freeze the family moved to Gainesville, FL where Mr. Douglas was a merchant and started his own insurance company. This couple had six chilren born to them who were: Alexander Scott Douglas, James Byers Douglas, Jr., William Davis Douglas, Eloise Douglas Smith, Zachariah Hicklin Douglas and Barton Thrasher Douglas.
James Byers Douglas and his brother, Davis Douglas were the only two children born to Alexander Simonton Douglas and Mary Elizabeth Byers of Winnsboro,South Caroline. Mary Byers died early in the marriage and Alexander married again.

I, Monica K. Douglas, wife of the late Barton T. Douglas, have worked on genealogy for many years. I am very interested in learning more about the ancestors of Mary Elizabeth Byers and where she came from.
I am also interested in finding out more about the Sarah Rebecca Douglass line that married into this Alexander Douglas line. I believe that they were from PA.
