I do these posts like normal people do crosswords. I poked around for an hour.

There are no men named Edward Douglas or Edwin Douglas in the census from 1790 - 1930 in Campbell County, Tennessee. Either
your source is wrong,
the transcribers goofed,
he used a different name
None of the above.

If it was a first marrige for both of them, there is an 80% chance he was born 1864 - 1871. I was looking for him to establish his age.

The California Death Index
http://vitals.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ca/death/search.cgi
has some people with mother's maiden name Campbell and surname Douglas, and some others with Father's surname Douglas and MMN Campbell. I can't tell if any of them match your family because you didn't give any children's names.

There is this family in Campbell Co in 1870
J F Campbell 21
Kesiah Campbell 20
Mary Campbell 1

They are gone by 1880.

There are eight women named Mary Douglas with spouses Edwin in the 1880 - 1930 censues, and two named Belle Douglas with spouses Edwin. None match your description.

There is one Edw* Douglas b. Tennessee with wife Mary and 0 Edw* with wife Bell* (* is a wild card; Edw* will return EDWin and EDWard) in the 1930. He doesn't match your description.

The digitized Modesto Bee has 0 hits for Belle Douglas in 1932 +/- 5. It has 35 for Mary Douglas, but the first three I looked at were for Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. At 3 minutes each, waiting for them to load, I gave up.

I struck out and quit. Sorry. If she gor her three score and 10, she died in 1939, just before the CDI starts.
