Generation 1
TIMOTHY ALFRED2 DOUGLASS was born November 20, 1851 in Hermanville, Claiborne Co Mississippi, and died November 27, 1938 in Bowerton, Copiah Co Mississippi.  I have been told that he is the son of Alfred or Isaac Douglass and Kate Lord, but having searched 1860 and 1870 Mississippi census, I was unable to verify the family.

He married MARY ELIZABETH 'BETSY / DADY' BUFKIN, December 24, 1874 in Barlow, Copiah Co Mississippi.  The daughter of Harmon Floyd Bufkin and Elizabeth Ann Barlow, she was born April 27, 1851 in Copiah Co Mississippi, and died April 27, 1921 in Brookhaven, Lincoln Co Mississippi.

In Memory of Neva Douglass

Whereas, it has pleased our Almighty Father to removed from our midst one of our precious darlings, little Neva Douglass of the Antioch community, who closed her eyes in death May 10, 1918.

She was a beautiful, intelligent and obedient child and was loved by all who knew here. She was a patient sufferer, was sick eighty-four days and underwent a critical operation without a murmur. She was a ray of sunlight wherever she went, and her death cast a gloom over many a heart. We can't understand the works of the Lord, but we do know he sent this little sun beam to brighten the way for nearly nine years and then to suffer and died. It seems so sad, but God's will be done, not ours.

Cousin Maggie

In Memory of Nollie Kate Douglass

On Tuesday the 27th day of August, 1912, as the clock was striking the hour of 11, the death angel visited the home of Floyd Douglass and wife, and tore away the sweet spirit of their babe, Nollie Kate.

Too good for earth, God called her home.   She was 8 months and 21 days old.

Thus another lovely bud hath been plucked from the bowers of earth that it may blosom ith eternal fragrance in the Paradise of God. How sad it is to see the cacant cradle which will be filled no more with the sweet sleeps of their darling. She never met a stranger, she had smiles for everyone.

Weep not, father and mother, for she has gone to rest and waits at the golden gates to welcome papa and mama in.

"She was but as a smile which glistens into tears, seen but a little while, but oh how loved, how dear. But dear ones do not greive for her, she is safe from sorrow, pain, and care, and you may meet her by and by, in her bright home over there."
Her body was laid to rest in Antioch Cemetery to await the resurrection morn.

Her friends, Emma and Nollie
