This looks like her father. Dates match with information from Sumpter Cemetery for Walter Bailey, and matches with John W. 14, b TX in the hh of David and Artie Bailey on the 1910 census for Trinity Co, TX.

Looks like Walter's mother, except she is listed as colored. It wouldn't be the first error in records. Informant is the same Mrs. Flora Moore, as for Walter and he is listed as white. And, there are no Baileys listed in the Black section of the Sumpter Cemetery. Year of birth fits the 1910 census, also.

Trinity Co, TX GenWeb site -- http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txtrinit/index.htm -- the following buried in the Sumpter Cemetery.

BAILEY, Reba
Apr. 25, 1925
Jun. 4, 1946
In our hearts dwell sweet memories of you. Dau/ Walter & O.M. Bailey

BAILEY, Walter
Jan 9, 1897
Jun. 20, 1959
TX PVT Co G 35 Infantry WWI Mil Marker

Strange that the headstone for Reba shows her maiden name, not married name of Harris. And, there is nothing for Omer herself.

I don't have a subscription for Ancestry.com, but can view their index. There is a Reba Bailey the right age to be the above Reba, listed in Pottawatomie Co, OK for 1930 census. Could the family have moved to OK, and Omer died there before Walter returned to TX???? He's listed as a widow on death certificate.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
