JOHN ALLEN BAILEY DIES AFTER STROKE
John Allen Bailey, a native of Cherokee county, former county official in Hill and Van Zandt counties, and former secretary of the Dallas Farm Loan Association, died at 6 p. m. Friday afternoon in Kleberg, following a stroke of paralysis.
Mr. Bailey has made his home with a son, Grover C. Bailey and family for several years. In fact up until last year his health became so feeble he had to have a special nurse and preferred to be at his old home town where he lived so many years. Everything that could be done for a father was done by his sons, G. C. and Walton D. Bailey. They were kind and considerate of his wishes, ever striving to do the things that brought him the most happiness, and in his last days was tenderly cared for by a trained nurse.
Mr. Bailey was a useful man, and a regular attendant at church until his health failed. He was known for his honor and integrity and had many staunch and true fiends in this community, having lived with his son here.
During his residence at Walton, Van Zandt county, Mr. Bailey served as county commissioner. For a period he was postmaster at Walton and operator of a general merchandise store. For twelve years, about 1908 to 1920, he was justice of the peace at Aguilla, Hill country. Mr. Bailey's 1st active labor was as secretary-treasurer of the Dallas National Farm Loan Association.
He is survived by two sons, Grover C. Bailey, of this city, Walton D. Bailey of Dallas, one daughter Mrs. Emma G. Barnhill of San Perlita and a brother, Joe A. Bailey of Newark. Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist church Saturday afternoon among a large concourse of friends and relatives who came to pay their last respects to one whose casket was covered with beautiful floral offerings as a testimony of their love and respect for the departed friend and relative.
