    Notes 
    • _STATMARRIED
      Per Mary Gill Smith.
      James Douglas and his wife Catherine, daughter of Isaac and Frances Collier, came to what is now Sumner County, Tennessee, but was then part of North Carolina in 1790. After Isaac Collier and his family moved from Virginia to North Carolina, Catherine Collier and James Douglasswere married at Ralight. When they moved to this country they settled four miles north of Gallatin on what is now the Douglass pike. They lived more than sixty years in the brick house which he had built and died there and were buriedon the place not far from the house. The house was made of brick that were made in a kiln on the place. Most of their descendents are in Texas and other Western States. The Indians stole all of his horses once, thirty or forty. His wife would go out to milk and put her baby in a sugar trough while she milked and her husband stood guard with a gun and watched for Indians. The cherry side-board that Vines Lucas Collier, Jr. bought had belonged to Aunt Catherine Douglass and had been made there in the old brick house which is standing yet. James Douglass had a cabinet workman to make several pieces of furniture in the house.
