Today I sourced the census records for the Douglas King family in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census of Monroe Twp., Madison Co., IN. Douglas and family lived in the village of Orestes. Douglas was the brother of my maternal great-grandmother, Ellen King.
Douglas' name was spelled in a variety of ways : Dugless and Dug being the best examples. Douglas' occupation was that of a glass worker, and apparently Orestes had a glass factory at one time. He was able to own his own home free of any mortgage, according to the 1920 census, and could read and write. By 1910, wife Amanda was the mother of 11 children, 8 of whom were still living.
