"A. S. Bailey Dies Suddenly.
Stroud and community were shocked Friday evening by the sad news of the death of one of our most prominent citizens, A.S. Bailey.
He was at the W. S. S. meeting on the corner of the First National Bank Friday evening and was suddenly taken ill, death occurring before he could be taken home in a car. Earlier in the afternoon some of his friends gathered at his home and gave him a pleasant surprise and although he was not feeling as well as usual, he was able to enjoy the afternoon. He had taken an active part in planning and working for the W. S. S. campaign.
The deceased was born in Hamilton, Okla. January 19, 1843, and served in the Union army during the civil war. He had been a citizen of Stroud for a number of years and has always been a citizen of Stroud for a number of years and has always taken an active part in every movement for the betterment of the town and community. His friends were numbered by the scores and he will be missed by all who knew him for his strength of character and Christian spirit.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the M.E. Church, conducted by Revs. Ryan and Brill. Burial was made in the Stroud cemetery. Besides a host of friends and relatives the deceased leaves a wife and six children, Miss Mary J. Bailey, Mrs. Nora Edmondson, Mrs. Birdie M. Spilman, Mrs. Clara M. Melville; eleven grandchildren and one great granddaughter.
The Democrat joins he friends of this family in extending our heartfelt sympathy in their great bereavement."
