I was not able to locate them in a 1900 census. I did find a William and Sarah, whose ages were close, but Sarah was shown to be born in Louisiana, her father in Texas, and her mother in Louisiana. Also, they were shown only to have been married 27 years making the marriage about 1873. This family was in Lincoln Co Mississippi
In 1910, I believe I have found the correct William, but Sarah is apparently deceased, and he is remarried to Emma E.
Beat 2, Copiah Co Mississippi 15 April 1910 pg 158 #10/10/10
Years of marriage not shown, but it is Wm's 2nd marriage, Emma's 1rst
|Children of William and Sarah are:|
|James Douglass, born cMay 1870, may have died before 1880|
|William A. Douglass, born c1877|
|Sam E. Douglass, born c1878|
|Researchers also tell me that they had two daughters:|
|Again, I was unable to locate him in 1920.|
