My Dad named me after his hero, General Douglas MacArthur  : General Douglas MacArthur

I guess I owe my interest in genealogy to being an incorrigible child. I'm told I "mouthed off" a lot to my Mom. After getting my mouth washed out with soap, or whatever the appropriate punishment was, I would normally get banished to my room for a few days. With nothing else to do, I started reading all the history books my parents had put in my room. Considering my track record for banishment, it did not take long for me to develop an intense interest in history. It was not long after, that I started asking my parents about our history. To my amazement, neither of them knew much at all about their family beyond their grandparents. My Mom would say that her father told her they were "Jersey Dutch". My Dad told me his mother came from England and not much else. About ten years ago, my Mom's brother, equally frustrated, completed a lengthy and very professional, well-sourced genealogical study for that side of the family. This inspired me to do the same on my father's side of the family, as well as, my beloved wife's family. The results have been interesting and surprising at times. Equally surprising, in a pleasant way, is meeting so many kind and generous people during my quest for genealogical enlightenment.

I have a BS & MBA from the University of Richmond and have worked as a professional landscape designer Dig_Doug's_Designs for many years before adding genealogy to my list of interests. In addition, I am crazy about cats, a trait passed on by my father.

Researching and documenting family genealogy has become a passion [1]. Most of my ancestors came to the U.S. from England, Scotland, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Norway (DNA tests say I'm 100% European with origins around northwest coastal Europe, Scandinavia, France, the German/French Alps & the British Isles. My ancestors that came to America in the 17th century were primarily Dutch or English.

The prominent names associated with them are:

  • Ackerman, Andrew, Armitage/Armytage
  • Banta, Baumann, Benjamin, Birse, Blauvelt, Bloor, Bottomley, Bowers, Buys
  • Cadmus, Chappell, Clarke, Clayton, Conklin, Cooper, Corne,
  • Davies, Demarest, Denton, Dougherty, Dunham, Dunkerley, Durye
  • Eckerson, Everitt/Everett/Everard
  • Fairburne, Federlichner/Federlechner
  • Ganung, Gardiner, Gaylord, Granger, Gibson, Gillet, Grindrod/Grinrod, Groetel
  • Hallock, Hoerr, Hocking, Hollister, Holmes,
  • Lauth, Lee, Lister, Litchult, Lockwood
  • Mabie/ Mabille, Marvin, Mather, Meinzer, Mellor
  • Parkin, Parschal, Philip, Polhemus, Post
  • Quackenbush
  • Rae, Ramsden, Rayner, Richards, Roth, Rudlun/Redner, Ryker
  • Schardein, Spier, Stanier/Stanyer, Stephens, Shaw, Shuart, Straut,
  • Taylor, Terhune, Thorp, Turse/Toers/Tuers
  • Van Oostrum
  • Walmsley, Wannamacher, Welles, Westcott, Winch, Wood, Woolsey, Wortendyke, Wycoffe, Wyld
  • Zabriskie

I am also interested in my beloved wife's genealogy ( & as it turns out 11th cousin - who knew?). Her ancestors are primarily from Freiburg, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland & Finland. They initially settled in Broome County, NY, Eastern, PA & Southern, NJ.

The prominent names are:

  • Ayers
  • Barnes, Bowen, Braddock, Bradway, Burdsall, Butterworth, Brach, Braithwaite
  • Chase, Clement, Connolly
  • Dennis, Dunn
  • Ellis, Elton
  • Faust, Fithian, Fogg, Foster, Fowler
  • Gibbon, Garrison, Godshalk, Groetel
  • Haines, Hall, Hancock, Hogan, Horton, Hoyt, Hunt
  • Johnson
  • Kern
  • Kabisser, Klingel, Klorer
  • Leeds, Lefevre, Lippincott, Lockwood
  • Mason, Merrit, Morgan, Morris, Murphy
  • Ott
  • Pitt, Pledger, Potts, Powers
  • Ratzel, Redstreake, Rogers, Ryan
  • Schiffhauer, Scwheinhardt, Schweitzer, Schwere, Seeley, Seifert, Selby, Sinnickson, Somers, Stokes, Swayze
  • Townsend, Transue, Trimble
  • Vickery
  • Walter, Ware, Weed, Wheaton, Wood, Woodruff, Wunder & others

They concentrated in Salem, Cumberland, Burlington & Camden counties New Jersey, Binghamton NY, eastern Massachusetts, Hartford CT and Bethlehem PA. Many of them were Quakers.

The German side of her family has been difficult, but has been documented to the 15th century with origins in the Swiss/German Alps; while her Swedish/Finnish line can be traced to the 17th century and settling in Salem County, NJ.

As an aside, I was absolutely thunderstruck when I saw that Wikitree has a category for B 29 bombers in World War II. Specifically, there is an article within the category for the B 29 bomber, the City of Trenton[[2]]. This is the plane my Dad flew in during the war, as the tail gunner, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross. I still can not believe article that allows me to contribute my memories of my hero!

I must give special thanks to Peter_Lockwood, (most likely related - connection TBD), founder & administrator of the Lockwood One Name Study registered with the Guild of One Name Studies, for his invaluable research & support. I also owe much thanks to my cousins Brian Slattery & Elizabeth Bowers for their much needed help with our Lockwood & Bowers paternal family genealogy & my uncle, James Turse, for his incredible research on our maternal (Turse/Toers/Tuers) Dutch family line. Cousin Brian Stanton,, also deserves great credit for his thorough research into the Conklin part of our maternal family tree, as does cousin Fred Bressette for his research into the Lockwood/Midwood line of our family.

Doug, do you remember why you identified Jacobus James Livingston (1701-1763) as "Notable"? (I didn't see it in the profile. Maybe I overlooked something!)
posted by Ellen Smith
You made many edits on James Lewis How do you relate to him? You posted a Will to his profile. The will specifically states that the writer of the will had a brother-in-law named William Miller. The writer of the will was married to Sarah Miller not Elizabeth Earll. There were two men named James Lewis in Smith Clove. The one married to Elizabeth Earll was still alive when her father John Earll wrote his will in 1781; James is mentioned three times in the will, never was dead. There is a deed that shows James Lewis and Elizabeth Earll were still alive in 1788 when they and her brother Peter Earll and his wife sell property to Elizabeth's and Peter's brother Richard Earll.

I descend from Joseph Lewis, the brother of the James Lewis who married Elizabeth Earll. I am in a Lewis Y-DNA match group that also includes other descendants of Joseph and their brothers John Jr and Benjamin. I also know two descendants of the James Lewis who married Sarah Miller. They are in a different Lewis Y-DNA match group.

Please let me know. I would like to make corrections, but I don't want to step on anyone's toes.

Hi, Doug.

I'm trying to identify some sources that you once added to profiles for members of the Huguenot/New Netherland family of Lafevre. I am hoping you remember where you found them -- and where they came from. (Note: This is not a family in my ancestry, nor one I've worked on much. I am not familiar with family resources. I'm looking into this family because I'm a Project Leader.)

"Genealogy of the LaFever family" is cited on the profile of Isaac LeFevre (abt.1660-1731), and you uploaded an image of page 2. I can't find any online sources describing a work called "Genealogy of the LaFever family." Do you know the authorship, date, etc.?

You uploaded to It looks like a solid piece of research, but I cannot tell what newspaper it was published in, when it was published, or who wrote it....

I took a break from this, got frustrated with not being able to get past my third great grandfather.. and other dead ends..

Doug, I believe you’re correct on Maxwell- 658. Do you think you can correct the file? I am unable to do so at the moment. By the way, it looks like we’re 9th cousins.
Congratulations Doug !
