Dorothy (Combs) Wooley


Family Information: She married Alonzo "Tot" Wooley in June 1936.  


Pre-Colony History: She came to the colony in June 1936 -- Alonzo Wooley had just returned from Grand Prairie, Texas, where he had been engaged in the printing business. Soon, a pretty, little maiden -- Dorothy -- arrived from that same town. She turned up at the print shop, then went around to the Wooley house. Pretty shortly, the pair were on their way to Leesville where Justice Williams tied the knot that never severs with DeForest Sanford and Louise Adler for witnesses.  

Home in Colony: In July 1936 he and Dorothy began fixing up a love nest all by their lonesome, moving into the house formerly occupied by Chauncey and Birdie DuProz.
