Pre-Colony History: In 1920 and 1930 he was living with his parents in California.

The family had been early members in the California Colony. They arrived in the Louisiana colony in July 1933 after having spent some time at the Gila location.  

Home in Colony: In January 1937 there was a re-shuffling of homes in the colony -- the Page family took a home, probably the largest residence in the colony, that had been vacated by Bill Brough who was alone, while the E.D. Carl family took theirs.  

Job in Colony: In December of 1933 he was riding the oil well truck atop a load of derrick material along with other Sunday volunteers including Alonzo Woolley, Frank Bowling, Sylvester Watson, Charles Bates, Claude Long and Raymond Campbell.
