  • Notes 
    • Place of birth given as : Lockerbie, Moffat, Dunbarton, Scotland, which cannot be correct, given Lockerbie, Moffat, Dumbarton are three differnt places! Dunbarton is a county.

      Eually, he could have been both a Colonel and an Ensign - but not both at the same time.

      Some records have marriage listed as 8 Oct, others, 28th

      Served in Holland and in the British Scotch Brigade with his two sons, Lieutenant James Douglas and Ensign Queensberry Douglas.
