Who is the little boy in the picture? J.E. Douglass Jr. grew up in the Old Union community of now-Southlake and attended Carroll Hill School. He stands outside the school around 1924 holding a flag that only came into existence in 1912 when New Mexico and Arizona became states. He is buried in White’s Chapel Cemetery.
