Birth: 1837
Illinois, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1863
Sumner County
Tennessee, USA

According to the 1860 Vermilion County (Ill.) Census, Thomas S. Douglas was 23 years old, residing in in Vermilion County and working as a farmer. On March 4, 1860, he married Ann Eliza Finley. One child is listed on the census: daughter Emma.
According to the Illinois State Archives, he enlisted in Company A of the 125 Illinois Infantry (Col. Harmon's regiment). At the time, he was described as 5'9" with light hair and gray eyes. He joined on July 25, 1862 in Danville and is listed as being discharged on February 3, 1863 in Gallatin, Tenn. for a disability.
Because his stone pre-dates the founding of Springhill Cemetery, it is likely that Pvt. Douglas was originally interred at the Old Williams Graveyard, near the present-day Danville Public Library, and was reinterred at Springhill when that closed. 
Note: Stone is very eroded and difficult to read, even using aluminum foil.
