Birth: Jan. 20, 1792

Death: Aug. 19, 1856
Giles County
Tennessee, USA

James William Douglass is buried under a stone that has his surname as a phonetic spelling (Dughless)...which is probably how the undertaker or stone maker thought to spell it. He was born in Kentucky in 1792 and died in Giles County, Tennessee in 1856. In 1833 in Pulaski, Giles County, Tennessee, he married Susan Ann Stainback, who was 25 years younger than James. James died testate at age 64 on 13 August 1856 in Giles County, Tennessee, leaving her with nine children and a sizeable estate including a 555-acre farm in Giles County. His name is clearly spelled "James Douglass" in his will of 1856.
Their children were:
--Martha Ann Douglass (1834-1871)
--John Henry Douglass (1835-1891)
--Nathaniel Robert Douglass (1837-1866)
--Elizabeth Jane Douglass (1839-1857)
--James Washington Douglass (1841-1936)
--Andrew Jackson Douglass (1843-1920)
--Mary S. (prob Susan) Douglass (1845-1873)
--Daniel Dennison Douglass (1847-1874)
--Rufus Thomas Douglass (1850-1918)
