George Washington ALLEN, 82, a Lincoln Heights, Ohio resident, died of a blood clot, on 
Tuesday, August 30, 2005, at The Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Born in Mount Salem, Kentucky in Lincoln County, Kentucky. He moved to Lincoln Heights, 
Ohio with his family at the age of 7 and graduated from Hartwell High School.

He was drafted into the Army during World War II and was a corporal in the all-black 537th 
Quartermaster Service Company and was stationed in France when U.S. forces fought the Battle of 
the Bulge in the Ardennes Forest at the end of 1944. His job had been loading supply trucks 
bound for the front. Because of the shortage of fighting men in early 1945, caused by the 
deaths of 14,000 white soldiers at the Battle of the Bulge and despite misgivings by the 
Roosevelt administration--a call went out among the black units for volunteers to enter combat.

Mr. Allen raised his hand and was one of around 4,000 black troops who volunteered for 
combat duty. After a month of training in France, he was sent to the front. The Army stripped 
him of his corporal stripes and sent him to battle with the rank of private. He and about 40 
other black soldiers joined the C Company, 2nd Division, 9th Infantry Regiment. They were put 
in their own platoon called the X-Platoon, which stood for experimental platoon. X platoon 
pushed its way through the Rhineland into central Germany and battled the retreating German army 
at Leipzig. They were transferred to General George Patton's, 3rd Army, and went to newly 
liberated Czechoslovakia, where they were hailed as heroes.

"They thought we (blacks) weren't good for anything, but driving trucks and lifting boxes, 
We showed they were wrong". For his actions Mr. Allen received the Bronze Star. Last year 
(2004), he traveled to Washington D.C., on the day the WWII Memorial was dedicated.

Mr. Allen returned to Cincinnati after the war, married and raised a family. He attended 
tailoring school and went to work as a carpenter for Philip Carey Manufacturing Company in 
Lockland, Ohio, retiring from its successor company - Celotex Corporation in 1989.

"He was a great man", said his son, Garry Allen of the Walnut Hills section of Cincinnati.
Mr. Allen enjoyed woodworking, reading and was a NASCAR fan.

Survived by: Wife of 59 years, Marian ALLEN; daughters, Linda HOLMES of Mount Vernon, N.Y., 
Susan BROWN of Fort Washington, Md; son, Garry Allen of Cincinnati, Ohio; sisters, Evelyn MINOR 
of the Hyde Park section of Cincinnati and Florence HARPER and Louise WILLIAMS, both of Lincoln 
Heights, Ohio; a brother, Donald Allen of Trenton, N.J.; six grandchildren and five 
great-grandchildren.

Visitation is 9-10:45 A.M., Saturday, September 3, 2005, at St. Simon of Cyrene Episcopal 
Church, 810 Matthews Drive in Lincoln Heights, Ohio. An American Legion ceremony is at 10:45

Dr. R. Quin Bailey

Danville Advocate Messenger
12/3/2001-Monday
Dr. Quin Bailey of Danville, who practiced medicine for almost 30 
years, died Sunday at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center after a 
long illness. He was 60.
Friends and associates praised his work with the high school athletics 
programs and his concern for the safety of the young players.
Bailey was instrumental in starting statewide medical symposiums for 
high school coaches that are now mandatory. His work with a committee 
formed in conjunction with the Kentucky High School Athletic 
Association helped make high school sports safer for all athletes and 
helped educate coaches on ways to not only detect injuries but also on 
how to prevent them. Bailey was recognized earlier this year by the 
organization when he received the Bob Miller Outstanding Service Award. 
KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett praised Bailey for his work to 
improve the health of student athletes.
"Every involvement he ever had with us was for the betterment of 
students in Kentucky. His honest and direct intentions will be missed," 
said Tackett. "He was much more than a doctor. He was a real friend to 
the association."
When Bailey stepped down as doctor for the Danville teams, Tackett said 
Bailey was "not only a pioneer, but he was a leader. He was the 
minority opinion on many issues. He was never bashful about it. Most of 
the time, he was proven to be right, too." 
Bailey began practicing medicine in Danville with Dr. Charles Sisk and 
Dr. John Baird and continued his practice until he became ill. 
A "true humanitarian and very caring person" is the way Sam Harp, 
Danville High School football coach, described his friend. "The things 
he did behind the scenes for the Danville football and athletic 
programs will be missed," said Harp.
Sisk, who welcomed Bailey to his practice when he graduated from the 
University of Kentucky Medical School, said Bailey was a good physician 
who had a great interest in the youth of the community.
"He gave much of his time for ensuring safety for young athletes, 
especially football and basketball," said Sisk. "He was a real good 
friend and I'm so hurt by the fact we had to lose him."
Sisk said he was impressed with how Bailey fought his illness. "He will 
be a great loss to the community."
Born June 10, 1941, in Louisville, he was the son of the late Edward M. 
and Elizabeth Hutcherson Bailey. 
He was a member of Centenary United Methodist Church where he had 
served as chairman of the board and a lay leader. 
He was a member of Bible Study Fellowship.
He was a graduate of Asbury College and a 1969 graduate of the 
University of Kentucky College of Medicine. 
He was former chief of staff at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical 
Center. 
He was a Fellow in the American Academy of Family Practice, a member of 
the Kentucky Medical Association and University of Kentucky Medical 
Alumni Association, and was recently appointed to the UK College of 
Medicine Dean's Advisory Council. 
He had served as chairman of the Kentucky Sports Medicine Committee for 
27 years and was active in teaching medical students from UK and 
University of Louisville.
He was the Danville High School football team physician for 30 years 
and received the 2001 Outstanding Service Award from the Kentucky High 
School Coaches Association for his dedication to the safety of high 
school athletes. 
He was the newly elected president for McDowell Home Health Agency and 
was a board member of Heritage Hospice.
Survivors include his wife, Connie Woolums Bailey; a son, Dr. Jonathan 
Bailey of Greenville, S.C.; a daughter, Jennifer Pierson of Norfolk, 
Va.; his stepmother, Pauline Bailey of Danville; a stepbrother, Ed 
Coleman of Atlanta, Ga.; and three grandchildren. 
Services will be 10 a.m. Wednesday at Centenary United Methodist Church 
by the Revs. Harold Brooks and Quenton Scholtz. 
Burial will be in Bellevue Cemetery.
Visitation will be 4-7 p.m. Tuesday at Preston-Pruitt Funeral Home and 
after 9 a.m. Wednesday at the church.
Memorials may go to Hope Lodge in Cleveland, Ohio, Heritage Hospice, or

OBITUARY OF AUGBURN BRIDGEWATER OF STANFORD, KY
Date: Friday, November 07, 2003 12:19 AM

"Lafayette Advertiser" Lafayette, Louisiana, 2 September 1893, p. 6, col. 5

A Notorious Character.
Ogden Bridgewater, one of the most notorious men in the neighborhood of Stanford, Ky., dropped 
dead the other night [August 1893] of heart disease. He was a brother of Col. Jim Bridgewater, who 
commanded a regiment of home guards, and after the war had trouble with the citizens of the 
Stanford neighborhood who sympathized with the lost cause. The colonel was himself killed [18 July 
1867] by Walter Saunders. Saunders was afterwards elected sheriff. Ogden was for years the head of 
a band of robbers who terrorized Lincoln county and robbed indiscriminately. A large reward caused 
him to be hunted, and he was finally captured by Marshal Gallagher of Harrodsburg with a wagon 
load of boodie. Gallagher had to shoot him, the ball taking effect in his jaw, breaking the bone so that 
it had to be taken out. Bridgewater was lodged in jail at Stanford, and for a long time subsisted on 
soup through a quill, and his tremendous frame was reduced almost to a skeleton. His appearance 
touched the hearts of the jury, and he was let off with a short term in the penitentiary. After serving it 
he returned to Lincoln county, and, professing religion, began to lead a new life, taking great interest 
in religious and Sunday-school matters.
NOTE: "Ogden" was Augburn "Og" Bridgewater, born about 1827 in Virginia. He and James H. 
Bridgewater were sons of Henry Bridgewater and Mary Franklin, who were married in Chesterfield 
Co., Virginia, and removed to Halifax Co., Virginia, then Pulaski Co., Virginia, and later to Lincoln Co., 
Kentucky. Augburn was married 15 August 1851 in Lincoln Co., Kentucky, to Emeline Shackleford.

I found this obituary on the Pulaski Co. Ky Obituary website. Submitter unknown and 
there is no name or address to ask permission for use. It was orginally printed in 
the Interior Journal of Stanford about the year 1953 or 1954. 

CAUDILL, Ralph K. (Kenton) SUPREME SACRIFICE PAID BY CAUDILL BOY; ARMY SAYS "PRESUMABLY 
DEAD" Missing since November 27, 1950, Sgt. Ralph K. Caudill, son of Mr. And Mrs. 
James E. Caudill Route 1, Waynesburg, has been classed "presumably dead" in a letter 
from the Army Adjutant General. "Full consideration has been given to all information 
bearing on the absence, including all records, reports and circumstances of your son", 
the letter said. Sgt. Caudill was reported seriously wounded in January of 1951 and 
reported missing in March of 1951. No word has been received by his parents since 
then. 

He attended Highland High and went into the army when 17 years old. His basic training 
was taken at Camp Breckenridge and was a Sergeant in the Infantry when reported 
missing. He attended Fairview Baptist Church at Hall's Gap and was a popular boy in 
the high school he attended. He was born in 1931. Other children and relatives of the 
bereaved parents are three brothers, Watson Caudill, Dayton; Jim Caudill, Waynesburg 
and Charlie Caudill, Cincinnati; three sisters, Mrs. Ray Jenkins, Waynesburg; Mrs. 
Lonzo McGuffey, Dayton and Miss Dixie Caudill at home and grandparents, Mrs. Leona 
Truller, Isom, KY and J. D. Hale, Red Fox, KY. The Army said in the letter that he was 
presumed dead as of December 31, 1953. Mr. And Mrs. Caudill have given the supreme 
sacrifice as well as their son for this country. Our sympathy is extended and we speak 
for the entire county in this. Interior Journal of Stanford. ( Taken from the Pulaski 
Co. Obituary web site.)
