George Douglass, whose parents were Scotch, settled first in Amherst county, Va., and removed from there to Bedford county. He married Mary Tucker, and they had— Lucinda, David, John, Murphy, William, Polly, Susannah, and Sally. Lucinda, John, Polly and Susannah remained in Virginia, where they married and raised large families. Murphy married and settled in the northern part of Alabama. William married and settled in Byron Co., Ky. Sally married John Coward, who settled in Shelby Co. David was a soldier in the war of 1812. He married Sally White, a daughter of Jacob White and Rebecca Hollaway, by whom he had—Nancy, Elizabeth, William B., Louisa, Edward H., Mary A., Martha, Lumira, Sarah, Edith, Robert H., Edna, and Keren. William B., who is a minister, settled in Missouri in 1830. He was married in 1832, to Lucy Chick, the ceremony being performed by Esquire Euoch Fruite. They had six sons and two daughters. Mr. Douglass taught school for some time after he came to Missouri, and he had a great many grown pupils who did not know their letters. It was the fashion then to study out loud in the school-room, and each one would try to get his lesson in a louder tone than the others, and sometimes the noise would be so great that it could be heard half a mile. After Mr. Douglass began to preach he was frequently called upon to marry people. On one occasion he went seven miles to marry a couple, through a drenching rain, swimming several creeks that lay in his route, and returned the same day; for which he received the magnificent sum of fifty cents! He then had to go thirteen miles, on a cold, rainy day and pay the fifty cents to have the marriage recorded. Such were the trials of pioneer preachers. Edward H. Douglass settled in Audrain county in 1837. He married Mary J. Ogden, of Virginia, by whom he had two sons. He died in 1838. Sarah Douglass married her cousin, Robert Douglass, and settled in Johnson county, Mo.
