Boyd and Marie Covington purchased a farm in the Thomas area, near Blackfoot, where they lived while their children were growing up. From 1950 to 1956 she worked as bookkeeper and Deputy Auditor in the Bingham County Auditor and Recorder's Office in Blackfoot. Marie and Boyd were divorced in 1953 and in 1956 she moved to Santa Monica, California where she worked first at the Santa Monica City Airport office, and later passed the state tests and was hired in the office of the California Department of Motor Vehicles. During this period she attended night classes in business at the Santa Monica City College. When her youngest son Errol completed his two and on-half year mission in Mexico in 1959, she resigned her job and returned with him to Idaho where she accepted employment with DeMott Tractor Co. (John Deere dealer) in Idaho Falls as secretary and bookkeeper....Marie inherited some of the Thomas musical talent and frequently accompanied singers on thepiano in her church and community. In addition to serving in the music departments of the L.D.S. church, she has also served a two-year Stake (local) mission for the church...She has also worked long and hard on her Thomas family genealogy and in helping the senior author of this family paper put out a summary of our Thomas family in America."--William Markham Morton (1971)

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.

The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945).
