Jefferson Co. Pa. Free persons of color
Can anyone tell me of a way to find info on my gggrandfather William Douglass who was born free in Jefferson county Pa. abt 1830. I have found several links and books for other counties in Pa but none for that county.
I have found him on the 1870 census records living in Erie Pa. with his wife Ada and family, but little before that.
I really would like to know who were his parents and if he had siblings.
I am also looking for his civil war records.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
