"Dr. T. J. Bailey, who was one of the most highly respected of the early settlers of this place, came to Springfield in 1837, when it was but a mere hamlet, and for several years enjoyed the largest practice of any physician in Southwest Missouri. He was from Monroe county of this State, having previously emigrated form Lincolon county, Kentucky. Mr. Bailey was considered, up to the time of the war, one of the wealthiest men in the county, and he possessed the happy faculty of being content. He was the owner of eight slaves at the time of the emancipation proclamation, and at the time of his death he left $4000 to be divided among them. Being a staunch Union man during the war, he retained his patriotism through life, and bequeathed $5000 for the erection of an appropriate monument, which was soon afterward erected in the National Cemetery." From The History of Springfield and North Springfield by George S. Escott.

You gave your life for something you believed in. Rest in Peace in a world with no fighting but only happiness and good will. I always become sad when I see lives lost in war, no matter what the cause. Life is precious and you will not be forgotten.
