 Jacob was buried on June 8 so the others should be 2 or 3 days later than the death dates.
All those listed above were buried in lots owned by Gravner Bailey. I
think each lot could hold 4 adult graves. Sometimes there were more when
there were children. Also buried on the same lots was Isabell Whiting.
Her body was moved on 18 Oct 1894 to the Bailey lot from a lot owned by
A.E. Whiting. She was buried on Whiting's lot on October 18 1893 age 32.
The oldest information about the Whiting lot is that ownership was
transferred in 1955.

From the paper in March 1921: George W. Bailey 48 came to Michigan from
Pennsylvania 43 years ago to Sylvan Twp. he died of a skull fracture.
