The Davis City Advance, Davis City, Iowa
Thursday, September 9, l897

OLIVER J. BAILEY was born in Lenawee County, Michigan, and died at this place Sept. lst, l897, aged 62 years, 4 months and 24 days.

The funeral occurred at the house the next day, conducted by Elder Asa Cochran of Lamoni, and the body was interred in the Lamoni Cemetery.

He was married in Michigan to OLIVE CURTIS and removed to this place 27 years ago.

To them were born five children, four boys and one girl. One boy died in infancy. ALBERT, MARTHA, ROMA, and OLIVER, with their mother are still with us. A brother, MR. SAMUEL BAILEY lives in Lamoni. The deceased was a man of excellent character, and has for many years held the office of Justice in this place. In his death the town loses one of her best citizens.

The sorrowing wife and family have the sympathy and respect of the community.
