Old Resident Passes Away at Belling-
ham, Wash.
Mrs. A. T. Bacon received a message
this morning from Bellingham, Wash.,
announcing the death of her father,
George W. Bailey, who passed away
at 7-30 Wednesday evening after an
illness of four weeks with gangrene
following the rupture of an artery in
one of his legs. The rupture was
deep seated and the real trouble was
not discovered for several days, too
late to be relieved.
Mr. Bailey was born at Arlington,
Mass., on Jan. 11, 1844, and spent his
youth in that vicinity. In the late
sixties he married Miss Sarah F.
Brooks and shortly afterward they re-
moved to Oshkosh and five years later
removed to this city and continued to
make this their home until about a
year ago, when he left for Bellingham.
Mrs. Bailey followed a little later by
way of Denver, where she spent sev-
eral months with her daughter. Mr.
Bailey was a saw maker by trade and
for many years maintained a shop on
Strongs avenue. Since going to Bell-
ingham he has been engaged in clear-
ing up a tract of land, which he in-
tended to develop into a fruit ranch.
Mr. Bailey is survived by his widow
and eight children. The latter are
Mrs. W. J. Olds of Denver, Mrs. A. T.
Bacon of this city, Mrs. U. G. Medcalf
of Bellingham, Mrs. H. B. Rivers of
Fond du Lac, Harry Bailey of Minne-
apolis, Mrs. Herman Utes and Mrs.
Charles Ebert of Chicago and Miss
Helen Bailey of this city. He also
leaves three brothers in Massachu-
The funeral will be held tomorrow
at Bellingham. Later the remains
will probably be brought here for final
interment. It is expected that Mrs.
Bailey will return here shortly to make
her future home.
Mr. Bailey will be kindly remem-
bered here by many old time friends.
He was somewhat noted locally as a
fisher and general sportsman and his
company was always enjoyed in
