Mr. J. T. Bailey found dead at an earlier hour at the Grenada Oil Mill last Saturday night. He was on duty as night watchman, a place he had filled for quite a long while, and had made but a few rounds when some one found him. He was almost lifeless and breathed but a few times afterward. Mr. Bailey was a quiet, unostentatious, peaceable, law abiding citizen. He was kindhearted and obliging and endeavored to cultivate the most cordial relations with all. He was a Confederate soldier and had met the issues of life since the war with the same fortitude that he faced shot and shell during the trying times from 1861 to 1865. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church. He is survived by several grown children all of whom are highly esteemed in the community. His remains were laid to rest in the Hope graveyard eight miles west of Grenada. Mr. Bailey enlisted in Co. G, 33rd Miss. on April 13, 1862, at Grenada. He was listed as MIA on July 20, 1864, but then appeared on the list of POWs at Camp Douglas, Illinois, July 30, 1864. He signed the oath on June 17, 1865.
