DOUGLASS, SAMUEL C. (1770?–?). Samuel C. Douglass, veteran of the War of 1812 and representative at the Convention of 1832, was probably born in the 1770s. He served in the War of 1812 in Captain Bacon's Company of Samuel Bayless's Fourth Regiment of the Tennessee Militia and arrived in Texas from Georgia between 1822 and 1832. He settled in Brazoria and farmed there until about 1845. He represented Mill Creek, Austin County, at the Convention of 1832. He was farming in Fort Bend County in 1850.
