Son of Cave Johnson Couts Sr and Isidora Bandini de Couts. Husband to Lily Bell Schrader.
In the 1970s the cemetery was converted into the Mission Hills Memorial Park, and only 150 of the original 2016 gravestones were salvaged. These gravestones were placed near the stone wall closest to the Middle School. The grave stone marker for Cave J Couts, II was salvaged, and is near the left end of the row of markers. All records relating to the exact locations of the graves in the park were reported to have been lost in a fire.
