    Cousin Mary writes: I am interested in finding documentation for the marriage of Lucy Self, daughter of William & Tabitha Self, to Edward Douglass, son of John and Susannah Douglass.

I know from my own research that the two families evidently lived in the same area as several documents I found for the Douglass family had Selfs as witnessess. [Does anyone] possibly have documentation or whether this was drawn from the fact that one of the 9 children of Edward and Lucy Douglass, was named William Self Douglas. I must admit that this would be logical to me also, but would like documentation if possible. As I mentioned above, I have been researching the two families since my father was a decendant of Edward Douglas and my mother was a Self. Please contact Webmaster.
