My line begins with one record- the marriage of William Henry Douglas(s) to Isabella McFarlane/McFarland/McFarline on 28 Dec 1832 in Pock Head, New Brunswick.Record says they were married by Rev. William G Johnstone, and 'both of Chatham parish.' I can find no other information before this marriage - no family, no birth/location info. First child was born about 8 years later, which also seems a bit odd (although perhaps there were some lost in between). By 1852 they are in Cayuga, Haldimand, Ontario/Canada West. By 1864, they are in Michigan. I believe William had brothers, Matthew and George.
Based on census records, Isabella was born c. 1807 and William as born c 1809. His parents may be John and Annis/Anna.
Suggestions for alternate places to look for information are appreciated. Thank you.
