Copiah County
Mississippi, USA
Death: May 12, 1937
Dallas County
Texas, USA

Son of Albert Gallatin & Viola (Short) Bailey, married Blanche Sterling "Stubby" Bacon 10 May 1903 in Dallas, TX.
In 1903, while working for Pike & Kramer Jewelry Store Mesers Pike and Kramer had "Pie" select any diamond from stock and presented it to him for his wedding ring, which he then handmade, for his bride, Blanche. While he could have chosen any size, he selected a perfect blue-white at slightly larger than 1KT.
During depression years prior to 1936 the Baileys had a home at old Lake Dallas and operated a Grocery Store and fishing camp. The Baileys maintained their home at 3004 Grand Ave, Dallas for years before 1936 and until his death in 1937, after the short time spent at the old Lake Dallas residence/business.
His love of family, friends and particularly his grandchildren was legendary.
A P (Pie) Bailey, 65, 3004 Grand, Dallas, Sportsman and former Texas League Umpire, dropped dead Wednesday afternoon from a heart attack while playing golf at the Glen Lakes Country Club. Bailey, for many years a Dallas resident, was well known in sporting circles, expecially baseball. He played for several years when the Texas League was in its infancy and served as umpire in 1895, 97, 1904, 05, 06 and 1910. When he retired from professional baseball he turned to managing and playing in the semiprofessional ranks. He was manager of the old Hurst Brother's Bears and the Martin Tigers; both teams winning the city championship several times. He had been a jeweler with a local jewelry firm for many years, being an expert engraver and diamond setter. At the time of his death he maintained his own jewelry business manufacturing and engraving sports emblems and diamond setting. He was a member of Hella Shrine Temple, its Drum and Bugle Corps; Scottish Rite Bodies and Trinity Valley Masonic Lodge.
