Elizabeth was the daughter of George Douglass and Grace Dunsford.  George, her father, was born in Scotland and, per family lore, had a military or political rank of some kind.  She immigrated along to New York in 1848, and shortly thereafter married Andrew Allen, who also was from Dublin.  Andrew died a few years later, of tuberculosis, after which ?elizabeth married my 2nd great grandfather, Robert Henry Mitchell.  I am trying to confirm Elizabeth's parents, and place and date of birth.  Also, looking for siblings, if any.

  • Mary:

    I searched on two sites: the free site and the subscription site Roots Ireland and was unable to find the marriage record of George Douglas and Grace Dunsford. I also did not find baptismal records for any possible children including Elizabeth.

    I did not see George Douglas in the 1846 Slater's Directory for Dublin.

    Have you considered DNA testing?
