"GEORGE S. DOUGLASS was born in Cass County, Indiana, January 23, 1844, and is one of the six children born to JOSEPH and SUSAN (KEITH) DOUGLASS, natives respectively, of Ohio and Tennessee. GEORGE S. was educated at the common schools; was reared a farmer, and at his majority began on his own account, farming on the homestead as a renter. He was married in December, 1869, to MISS EMMA, daughter of SAMUEL and CHARITY (THOMPSON) HORN, and a native of Highland County, Ohio, and born in 1847. Three children have blessed this union - JESSIE, GRACIE and JOSEPH. MR. DOUGLASS came to his present home in this township in 1870, finding very fair buildings and fences, but he has since erected a large frame dwelling, and made other corresponding improvements. His farm comprises 180 acres, which are well improved. He is an active Republican, and in 1878 was elected Township Assessor. Both he and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
