Dr Ezekiel McCord "Zeke" Bailey
Birth: Jul. 30, 1873
Death: Mar. 27, 1950

Ezekiel McCord Bailey was the son of Meshak Stacy Bailey (1823-1891) and Emerine "Emmie" Martha (Roberts) Bailey (1841-1880). He was the second of four children. His siblings were Daisy Meshie (Bailey) Haymes (1871-1936); Effie E. Bailey (b. 1875); and Noah Clinton Bailey (1878-1924).

He also had five half-siblings from his father's first marriage to Hulda S. Bouldin. His half siblings were: Laura Clay Bailey; William L. Bailey; Mary Bell "Mollie" Bailey; Sarah S. "Siph" Bailey; and Ellen M. Bailey.

Ezekiel McCord "Zeke" Bailey was born on 30 July 1873 in Missouri. His mother died when he was 7 years old. He attended Henderson Academy, from which he graduated, and then went to medical school at the Marion Simms School of Medicine in St. Louis.

He married Harriet Frances "Fannie" Mallonee (1876-1899) about 1898 . They had a daughter, Nellie M. Bailey, who was born in April 1899, according to the Cemetery Directory of Hickory County, Missouri (Hickory County Historical Society, Oct 1990). His wife died in May, soon after giving birth, and his baby daughter died a few weeks later in August. Both were buried in Antioch Cemetery in Hickory County. He then went out West to work as a sheepherder for awhile, before returning to Missouri to practice medicine.

On 30 April 1910 at age 36, he married Mary Ellen McCall (1886-1918) in Elkland, Missouri. She was the daughter of James Buchanan McCall (1857-1937) and Mary Jane (McFadin) McCall (1864-1949). Ezekiel and Mary Ellen Bailey had three children: Emerene McCall (Bailey) Abbott/Fowler (1911-1996); Mary Louise (Bailey) Pharriss/Notz (1913-2008); and Meshach Stacey "Mesh" Bailey (1915-1963).

Dr. Bailey's second wife died on 6 May 1918 in hospital in Springfield, Greene County, Missouri. She was buried in Pleasant View Cemetery in Elkland.

Doc Bailey, as he was known, continued to practice medicine in Elkland and the surrounding area for 30 more years. When he died on 27 March 1950, he was buried next to Mary Ellen in the Pleasant View Cemetery. One large marker engraved with the name BAILEY marks their graves.
