David Orlando Colvin was born June 20, 1877,in Payson, Utah County, Utah. He was the third child of Wesley William Colvin and Elizabeth Winsby. When he was two years old, his parents started on the journey to Arizona. Their trip was delayed when Grandfather, David Sands, was iniured in a wagon accident. The famiy spent the winter in dug outs near
Escalante, Utah. They arrived in Brigham City, Arizona, in 1880 where his father worked on the railroad for a year before moving to Show Low, Arizona. In 1883, the Colvin
family moved to Curtls, Arizona, where David grew up and attended school. Their homestead was located about two miles from the center of Curtis in the area later to be
called Coonsville.

On September 12, 1899, he married Joanna Beatrice Curtis. After their marriage, David and Joanna made their home in Eden where their first four children were born. They then moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where their twins, Lola and Lark, were born in 1919. After living in Phoenix for several years, the Colvin family moved to Los Angeles, California, where David died on 20 June 1951.

David and Joanna were the parents of six children: Reubin Orlando, Delila Elizabeth, Cloral B., Opal Isabell, Lola, Lark.
