Actually Nancy was Jesse H. Douglas THIRD wife. He married Nancy's older sister Eliza Ann Stewart 27 Nov 1859 Ellis County TX. They are in Ellis Country in 1860..
He married Evaline Gail Manly 23 June 1863. Evaline died after birth of daughter Sarah. He married Nancy 12 Nov 1865.
After Ann Eliza Stewart Douglas died, Jesse married Evaline Gail Manly, who, in 1864, gave birth to a daughter, Sarah Gail Douglas. However Evaline Gail Douglas died shortly after giving birth to her baby and her husband, Jesse, having no way to care for the infant, told his mother to take the baby home with her and give her to his sisters, Lizzie and Sue. Since Sue already had several children of her own, Lizzie, who never married, took Sarah and raised her. ( I followed this through the census) Although Lizzie never legally adopted Sarah, Lizzie always regarded her as her own child and when Lizzie died left her property to Sarah. Jesse however was concerned for her welfare.
Paraphrased from "Sylvana' written by Elmo Douglas Headrick: "Jesse Douglas, while never having any part in raising his oldest daughter, Sarah, was always interested in her welfare and at one time bought 320 acres of land for Sarah. For this, he traded his noble animal, Nelly Capshaw. This fine blooded saddle mare had, in 1869, more corresponding value than the finest automobile today."
(Also from a letter from Jesse to his brother George Douglas telling about his buying this property.) " George, it is out of the question for me to move during Old Lady Stewart's lifetime. I think she would go crazy. She is old and frail in body and mind, but she may live longer than younger ones. I am not sure whether I will remain on this place next year or not -- a couple of months will decide that. PS. Eli weighs 32 lbs.-Earl is growing fine, stands his weight. Can almost sit alone." (Old lady Stewart may refer to Jesse's third wife Nancy Stewart.)

is my source for her burial in Pond Springs Cemetery the others just say the died in Pond Springs. That leaves me thinking the others are there also in unmarked graves.

I looked in The Rutledge book but it only says died Pond Springs She lived longer than Susan 1857-1886.
The book does say Iraol is buried there 1869-1879 So will put all but Iraol as burial unknown for Now.

I am not sure if she is there she died the same year born in Pond Springs,Texas. Are there other Cemeteries in that area she might be in. In the 1850 for a baby would they have just buried her themselves?? I will put her as burial unknown till I find out. Thanks
You can actually add the parental links on her page to add her automatically.

I am currently researching the Stroud Family here in Arizona. A descendant recently visited us here in Phoenix to see the graves of Ira Stroud and family. Ira was a son of Allen Stroud and Arza Aston. I have done a lot of research into the associated families such as the Hills, Williams and Bridgemans. If I can be of assistance to your research let me know.
