Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1798
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 1861

The Douglass' were early Albion pioneers, coming to this area from Parma in Monroe County, NY. Lucretia (wife of Samuel) was the daughter of Albion pioneer Wareham Warner. They arrived at "the Forks" in a driving storm of snow and sleet, "with garments frozen still, and without house to shelter or fire to warm thrm," state their biography which appears in the 1877 History of Calhoun County, pp. 110-111. As an historical footnote, the first school taught in Albion township was in the fall of 1833 inside one room of Samuel Douglass' log cabin, with Violetta Leach being the teacher.
