I need help finding the parents and any possible siblings for William Douglas, born about 1821. I could not find any death certificate for him or a marriage record and the search is complicated by the fact that the records I do have list different places for his place of birth. These are Vermont, New York, Canada, and Scotland. The earliest record I have for him is the 1850 US Census record which places him and his family in Alexandria, Jefferson, New York. It is further complicated by the fact that he seems to have used Douglas and Douglass for spelling his name.
