Thank you for responding so quickly. This is my quandary. I see James U.(Uriah) Douglas(s). b.1838 Tompkins county, New York d.1917. Then James H. Douglass b.1841 in Hectory, Schuyler Co. New York d.1924. Father of both: Sydney Douglass b. 25 Dec. 1815 Scotland and Mother: Catherine Rumsey b. 1817. In the 1850 Federal census for Newfield, Tompkins county, New York, James U. is now Uriah James. Now James Uriah married Mary Frances Rumsey, and that becomes another can of worms. The other James married also but not Mary Frances Rumsey. I am related to the Rumseys ,but would need a lot more space for telling that tale of 2 Frances or Mary Frances Rumsey. I'm rambling, and probably confusing. Thank You again.
