============

Douglas was born in a little valley just out of Covelo called Poor Man's Valley. I'm sure the Post Office has always been Covelo.

Douglas married Vera Katherine Johnson.

Douglas and Vera were divorced and he married Margie STASER in 1969 who survived him. Shirley Reece was Margie's daughter by a previous marriage.
