This is NOT Martin Douglass' daughter Mary Ann!
There were two Mary Ann Douglass in this generation, one daughter of Ebenezer Douglass and one daughter of Martin Douglass. Bacause Ebenezer moved on to Missouri, it does not seem to have mattered too much to the family - until people in much later generations began to try to straighten out the genealogies! Then the duplication made things confusing.
