....
The original of these photos and tintypes belonged to my great grandparents, William Alonzo Bailey and Millie Martha Parker Bailey. When their daughter, Millie Bailey Babcock, died in 1970 her husband, George, gave the box of photos to me.
William Alonzo Bailey and Millie Martha Parker were married in Iroquois County, Illinois on September 9, 1882. Between 1882 and the late 1880's they moved to Kankakee, Illinois. Four of their children, Edna Leona "Vera", John Leslie, Frances Lillian, and Minnie Launs, were born in either Iroquois or Kankakee County. From Kankakee they moved to Oklahoma about 1899 where their two youngest children, Mary Elizabeth, my grandmother, and William Theodore were born.photo

William A. Bailey, Minnie Bailey, Mahlon Bailey. Written on back of this is Papa,, (W.A. Bailey), Mahlon and sister. By Minnie Babcock. We think sister is Minnie Bailey who married Charles Zumwalt. Minnie Babcock is the daughter of W.A. and Millie Parker Bailey.photo

Unknown Bailey
Written on the back is "W.A. Bailey or brother". He doesn't really resemble W.A. Bailey or his brother, Mahlon. Could be one of the other brothers. Hopefully someone can assist in identifying this person.photo

John Lemon Bailey

John Lemon Bailey and wife. Written on back "Grandfather John L. Bailey and wife". We do not know if this is John L. Bailey's first wife, Rebecca Kelly, or his third wife, Phoebe Lewis. Phoebe had children from her first marriage. Perhaps some of her descendants can help identify this lady.photo
John Lemon Bailey
and Unknown Woman


There is nothing written on the back of this photo. We have a photo of John Lemon Bailey's second wife, Hannah. This must be one of him with either the first wife, Rebecca Kelly or his third wife, Phoebe Lewis. We even thought that perhaps the woman is a daughter. Hopefully someone can help identify her.

Unknown Parker
On the back of this photo is written "I think this is mama's bro and family, a Parker. Bill Parker and family?" This was written by Minnie Bailey Babcock. Her mother was Millie Martha Parker Bailey who had four brothers, William, John, Edwin (Edmund), and Jasper. Photo taken in Watseka, IL.photo
Unknown Parker
On back is written "I think Ed Parker and Cynthia". Samuel Edwin (Edmund) Parker was born in 1859 in Ohio to Joseph and Mary Elizabeth Sherman Parker. We are not certain if this is Ed. Photo taken in Watseka, Illinois.
