  • Notes 
    • Sarah George married Edward Douglass in Fauquier County, Virginia in 1740. They removed from Virginia and settled in Sumner County, Tennessee, in 1785. The portrait was painted soon after their arrival in Sumner County.. The portrait descended in the Douglass family for many generations to the current owner.

      The sketch by her son James (1762-1837), says she was a George, that she was born in 1711 and that he believed she had 2 brothers and 2 sisters. Researchers have had that she was the daughter of John George, b. 1704 VA d. 1784 VA, and his wife Mary/Millicent Jordan. This is definitely not correct for a couple of reasons, the main one being John could not have had a child at the age of 7 years. Also John George's family is well documented and he had 5 daughters and 3 sons. It is possible Sarah was the daughter of an earlier John George, but which one?!. (I'm working on this and would appreciate any input.)
