Edward and Mary Ann were married Jan.7, 1795,in Campbell Co, VA. The witnesses were Samuel Jordan and Elizabeth (Jude) Jordan, sister of the bride. Mary Ann's father, George Jude, Sr., later gave her husband, Edward Douglass, 140 acres in Giles Co, TN for $4.00 per acre without interest. He specified that if Edward never took possession, it would go to Mary Ann and her heirs to enjoy forever without paying his estate. We know that some of the family, the Herefords(offspring of Martha Tabb Strong Hereford, who was the daughter of Robert Strong and Lucy James Douglass, did move from Alabama to Giles Co, TN, and that is evidently why. In Madison County, Alabama, Edward and Mary Ann built a large brick house "a few miles west toward Harvest, Alabama" according to a personal letter from Frank Lester Hereford, a great grandson of William and Martha Tabb Strong Hereford, written in 1956. Edward and Mary Ann's house was still standing at that time, "but very old."
