John P and Martha Bailey Family Reunion 2001

This reunion in August 2001 was attended by descendants of John Pleasant Bailey and Martha Virginia Moses. Most were descendants of son Bud Bailey, but there were a few descendants of son John Bailey and daughter Kate Bailey Steppe. No descendants of son Ocea Bailey were there.

Alice Bailey, wife of Morris Bailey, and Eunice Bailey, wife of Taylor Bailey (deceased).

My cousin Clay Davis, my wife Margaret, and Clay's wife Millie.

Children of Bud Bailey. Seated Iva and Katy Mae. Standing: Mildred, Morris, Lyle, Milton, and Janice.

John L Bailey III and and our relative Nellie Finch.

June Waller Chewning and me, Lewis Bailey Steppe, Jr. June and I are triple cousins. Her father was my mother's brother Raymond Waller making us first cousins, and her mother was my father's cousin Iva Bailey making us second cousins. And we have GGGG-Grandparents in common, David Callaham and Katy Hightower, making us fifth cousins. Thus we are almost as close as siblings. My wife Margaret says we look alike.

This is Lyle Bailey and sister Mildred. I remember going through the lunch line where she helped me a big piece of her cornbread.

Milton Bailey and my wife Margaret.

Children at the reunion preferred to stay outside.
