Obituary: Article from the Lexington Progress, dated August 20, 1937:

John Wilburn Douglas, son of J.G. and Julia Wilson Douglas, was born January 3rd, 1895, and died August 12th, 1937, age 42 years, 7 months, and 9 days. He grew to manhood and spent practically his entire life in the community in which he was born. During the World War he answered the call of his county in July, 1918, and served with honor and distinction until his return in June, 1919; the greater part of this time having been spent in overseas service. He was happily married to Lyda Anne Taylor, in January, 1921, and to this union were born seven children - three girls and four boys, all of whom are with their mother, and survive him. He also leaves an aged mother, Mrs. Julia Douglas, two brothers, O.A. and C.V. Douglas, one sister, Mrs. R.G. Milam, together with a host of relatives and friends to mourn his death. His father, James G. Douglas, preceded him in death 39 years ago. Some time ago his health began to fail and his condition became such that he was carried to the U.S. Veterans Hospital in Memphis for treatment. His ailment being pronounced tumor of the brain, he was transferred to the Hines Hospital in Hines, Illinois, for further treatment and operation, but before the surgeon's knife left its work, death claimed him for its own. To his wife and children and a group of friends and relatives who visited him in Memphis, he talked beautifully an assuringly of his thorough preparation for a life after death and while expressing himself as confidently believing he would be able to go through the operation and return to his home and loved ones, he gave them every assurance that all would be well with him. To his mother, he was dutiful and obedient; to his brother and sister he was kind; to his wife, he was faithful; to his children as a father, he was loving and to neighbors, he was ever ready to lend a helping hand. He will surely be missed by all. After words of comfort were spoken by Elders J.L. Fuller and John Page, to a large concourse of people, relatives and friends, the body was laid to rest in the Douglas cemetery, near his home there to await the resurrection morning.

In Jan 1921 when John Wilburn was 25, he married Lydia Ann TYLER, daughter of John Wesley TYLER & Sara Ella GILL. Born on 28 Apr 1896. At the age of 79, Lydia Ann died on 10 Jun 1975. Buried in Jun 1975 in Waller-Douglas Cemetery, Henderson County, Tennessee.
