Alse BAILEY was the s/o L. C. & Virginia Thurmond BAILEY. He was born July 18, 1894 and died March 1, 1971. He and Aunt Sara married on February 27, 1920.
I always had a warm feeling when Uncle Alse was around. He indulged and encouraged my love of history by talking about his experiences on the Western Front in World War I. He had endured poison gas and long periods in the trenches.
In my heart he was my subsitute for my CRAWFORD grandfather that I never knew. I named my first born son, William Austin TIDWELL, after him.
