About Edward Douglass, Sr.

DAR Ancestor #: A033694

The DOUGLASS family has been prominent in Sumner County since 1785, when Edward Douglass, with all his children, settled on Station Camp Creek a few miles north from Gallatin. He was born in Farquier County, Virginia; married about 1740, Sarah George. He was a commissioned officer in the War of Independence, and a man of education, and a lawyer, though he had never practiced law. He, when called upon, gave legal advice to his friends, and neighbors without fee or reward, always counseling them not to go into the courts. He was one of the first magistrates of Sumner County, and was active in all public affairs. His home was near Salem Camp Group, on lands still in possession of his descendants.
