Bailey, Julia (3 APR 1833 - 8 APR 1924)

Mrs. Julia Bailey, one of the oldest resident of Clark County, Wis., died at the home of R. F. Kountz, Tuesday afternoon, April 8, 1924, aged 91 years and 5 days. Julia Tyler Clough was born at Orange, New Hampshire, April 3, 1833. She grew to womanhood in New Hampshire and was there married to A. W. Bailer. In 1866 they came west and lived for one year in Kansas. They then moved to Black River Falls, and in 1871 moved to Greenwood, Clark County, Wis.. After her husband's death in 1903 she went to Portland, Oregon to live with her son Burton. This son died in 1918 and she came to Neillsville to live with her daughter, Mrs. R. F. Kountz, who is since deceased. She remained in the home, however, and in her declining health has been well cared for by Mr. Kountz and his daughter, Miss Kittie Kountz.

Another son, Dorrance, died at Greenwood. She leaves one step-daughter at Everett, Wash. She leaves also 7 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Mrs. Baily was of Puritan ancestry and was related to a number of the noted literary people of New England. She was mentally superior, kindly and cordial to all about her.

The funeral was held Friday, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating. Burial took place in the family lot in the Greenwood Cemetery.
