Douglass spent much of his childhood and adolescence in Maryland.  He was born there and raised there, as well.  He also spent time in New York and overseas in England and Ireland for several years.  Upon his return to the States, he settled in Rochester, New York, but later moved to Washington, D.C.  After doing some more overseas traveling with his 2nd wife, he later returned to Washington, D.C., and died there.
