      "JEREMIAH AND MARTHA (MITCHELL) DOUGLAS(S)
      Jeremiah Douglas was born in Montgomery County, IN., May 28, 1832, thethird of the ten children of Jeremiah Douglas, a basket maker, andMary Catherine (Redenbaugh) Douglas. His grandfather, also namedJeremiah Douglas, lost an arm in the War of 1812. the family had cometo the area in the early years of Montgomery County from Scotland viaHinton, KY and Madison, IN. Jeremiah married Martha Jane Mitchell, inMontgomery County on Mar. 11, 1856. They were James Lewis Douglas (B.1857 - D. 1889) who married his cousin, Levina Catherine Douglas,Amanda Jane Douglas, who died unmarried at age 20 in 1878, Mary HannaDouglas (B. 1864 - D. 1953) who became wife of George Washington Burk,and Mariah Louella Douglas (B. 1872 - D. 1914) who married John J.Cox.
      Jeremiah was a farmer well-known in early Montgomery County. Like hisfather he owned land a mile and a half east of Whitesville. This landwas sold in 1873, when Jeremiah, his wife, children, and parentsrelocated northwest of New Market. He passed away on June 28, 1907,at the age of 75 of stomach trouble and heart disease after havingbeen confined to his bed for six weeks prior to his death.
      We get an interesting insight into the family history from a line inhis obituary. It reads, "For years the deceased lived in the hopethat he would share in a large fortune which was coming to the Douglasfamily from Scotland." No doubt this referred to the family legendthat Jeremiah's great-grandfather Douglas had been murdered the nighthe was to take over his inheritance...a family estate in Scotland.
      Martha Jane's death came on Feb. 10, 1914. Interestingly, herdaughter, Mariah "Louella," who was living at the same home at thetime, died the very next day at the age of 42. Martha was just twoweeks short of 82 at the time of her passing." [Transcribed by,SLJuhl - direct descendant, on 27 Oct 2005]
