1 Bryant Bailey
Birth: 1806, Randolphh County Georgia
Occ: Farmer
Father: Unknown as of yet
Mother: Unknown as of yet

On 1860 Winn Parish Census as being 54

According to "I Want To Know" by Lawson B. Arrington, Bryant and Terissa Bailey were parents of Four children two boys and two girls. They all came to Louisiana except Susannah. There is no record indicating what happened to her.

The surname Bailey is English origin meaning a dweller at a palisade or Courtyard wall. It derived from old French belle, "palisade or wall". This name has other sources.

Bryant Bailey was born in 1806 in Randolph County, Georgia. His parents migrated from Virginia ca 1790. Zachariah Bailey, a native of Virginia, born near Lynchburg in 1793, came to Georgia when grown and settled near the home of Bryant Bailey, where he engaged in farming. It is assumed that Zachariah was a very close relative of Bryant Bailey.

To the Zachariah and Bertha Bailey union were born six children. A son J.T. in an unusual circumstance met William S. Arrington during the Civil War. It was in the battle of Cedar Creek in 1864 and J.T. Hailey, member of Company H was carrying the colors when he was hit by an enemy miniball and fell to the ground with his left arm badly wounded. William S. Arrington, brother in law to J.T. Baileys close cousin, took the banner from him and marched forward in lead of the Company.

Bryant Bailey married Terissa Johnson in 1828.

The Bryant Bailey family migrated to Louisiana in 1857, at the same time their daughter, Martha Ann, and husband James Arrington moved.

Bryant Bailey was born in 1806 in Randolph County, Georgia. His parents migrated from Virginia ca 1790.

Wagon train came from Georgia to Winnfield, La. in 1858 with the Meltons, Baileys, Teddlies, Boltons and Teagles and others. They settled in Packton, Atlanta, South Winn area. At this time we do not know if Bryant and Terissa came with Berrien F. or not. We can find no evidence of either grave in Winnfield, La. or surrounding areas. It was common in those days to bury Mama and Daddy on family property and the grave was often home made. It is possible the grave was just not preserved. We do know that Berrien's sister Martha who married an Arrington made the trip. We recently found her grave in bad condition and are trying to get a tombstone made to preserve the grave.

27th Regimant

This regiment was organized at Camp Moore in April 1862, with 973 men. The regiment left for Vicksburg, Mississippi on May 1 and arrived on May 4. During the first Federal campaign against Vicksburg, May 18-July 17, the men did picket duty north and south of the city. The regiment did guard and picket duty in Vicksburg from the fall of 1863 through the early spring of 1863. On May 18, 1863, the men skirmished with the enemy as General Ulysses S. Grant's army surrounded Vicksburg. The regiment held part of the line of entrenchments during the seige of the city. May 10-July 4. The men repulsed an attack on May 10 and were said to have captured the first enemy flag and prisoners taken during the sweige. In the course of the siege, 58 men of the regiment were killed and 96 were wounded. Following the surrender and their parole, the men went into camp for a time at Enterprise. Most of the men then went home on furlough. Perhaps a majority of the men remained at home even after the government declared them exchanged in the fall of 1863. In the summer of 1864, six companies, reduced in strength, reorganized at Alexandria. Companies A and H reorganized at Clinton, Louisiana, and became part of Gover's Regiment Mounted Infantry. One source states that Company D never reorganized, but some records show at least part of it at Clinton in June, 1864. The regiment occupied a camp at Pineville until the end of the war. Occasionally, detachments would help garrison Fort Buhlow and Fort Randolph near the town. Many of the men began dispersing to their homes in Late April, 1865. The remnants of the regiment marched to Mansfield and disbanded there about May 19.

Company F., Winn Rebels, Jesse M. Cooper, promoted major June 18, 1863; William B. Stowall.

Birth: 14 Jan 1872, Winnfield , La.
Death: 6 Aug 1952, Monroe, La.
Burial: 6 Aug 1872, First Baptist Church Star City, Arkansas
Occ: Physician
Educ: Graduated Memphis Medical College 1897
Reli: Baptist

He was a Mason, Shriner and Deacon of First Baptist Church. He was a Physician for the Commercial Solvent Plant at Sterlington, La. Practiced medicine in Epps, La. for 20 years. Born on a small farm some six miles south of Winnfield, La. He practiced his profession in Winnfield for a short time, moving to Atlanta, La. and from there to Effie in Avoyelles Parish. He resided there several years. His next location was at Epps, West Carroll Parish. From there he moved to Star City Arkansas where he made his home until the time of his death. He had 3 boys, 2 girls, eight grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren.

His Life According to Patricia Crow:

The Bailey family came to Winnfield, Louisiana, in a covered wagon from around Stone Mountain, Georgia. (This is not accurate according to what we have found, the family was from Cuthbert GA, no way near Stone Mountain). Marie Audibert, Uncle Buddy's daughter, visited Stone Mountain in the 70's and bought meal from a Grist Mill that was known as the Ole Bailey Grist Mill. They were of Scotish-Irish descent.

Buford Lee Bailey was born in Winnfield, Louisiana, in the year 1873. His parents were Berrien F. Bailey and Lucy Ann Teagle Bailey. They had three boys, Bryan, John McPherson Berrien (Buddy), who was named after Senator John McPearson Berrien of Georgia, according to Marie, Buddy's daughter, Buford Lee, and one girl, Maude. Their father was wounded in the Civil War and returned home with only one leg. He died in 1883. Buford was about 10 years old. His mother must have been an encouraging mother because Bryan Bailey became a sheriff and prominent banker in Winnfield. Buddy was a farmer, Maude married into the Long family, a historical and prominent family in Louisiana, and Buford became a prominent doctor. Buford's mother came to live with her son and his wife Nellie Small Bailey until her death in 1903.

Buford became engaged to Nellie Small in 1896. After his engagement, he went to Memphis, Tennessee, to attend the University of Tennessee Medical School. While he was gone Nellie taught school.

Graduating in 1898, Bailey returned to Winnfield to find that Nellie had contacted typhoid fever and only weighed eighty pounds.

In December, 1898, Nellie and Buford were united in marriage in Winnfield. After making their home in Winnfield for a few years, he moved the family to Magna where he bought a farm. The five children were born in Magna. Justin Berrien 1899, Zola, January, 1901, Otis Kendall, August 1902, Herman Ralph, October, 1906, and Leta Estelle, August 1910.

In 1914, Dr. Bailey went to Chicago, Illinois to take post-graduate work in Obstetrics and pneumonia. Leta stayed with aunt Veila Dietrict in Alexandria, La. because she didn't want to go. He did other post graduate work in New Orleans.

Dr. Bailey was a restless person, trying to decide whether farming or doctoring was his love. After trying his luck at farming and also practicing medicine, he left Magna and sold the farm to a Doctor Harris and moved to Serata in North Louisiana near Minden. The family stayed at Serata a few years then moved to Chase, then to La Morie where he bought another farm of 100 acres. He stayed only one year again deciding farming was not for him. He leased the farm and moved back to Chase in 1915.

When living in Chase, Dr. Bailey got his first Model T Ford. While trying to learn to drive, he ran over an embankment and all the family fell out but "no one was hurt", said Leta.

The first cars were open and didn't go very fast and one day Leta was riding with Zola, her sister, and wanted to stop and play with a friend. Zola wouldn't let her so she jumped out of the car and hit her head. She had a consussion and was in bed several days. She thinks that is the reason she has the phobia of high places.

In 1918, Granddaddy learned that doctor Baskin in Epps, a farming community near Delhi and in West Carrol Parish, had died and there wasn't a doctor in the town. Dr. Baskin had been a popular and well respected physician in the community for ten years. During the 1918 devastating influenzea epidemic that struck the area, he was on the go day and night until in October he contacted the disease and died within a few days. After learning about Dr. Baskin's death, Dr. Bailey took Herman and Justin and moved to Epps leaving grandmother and Leta in Chase. The Pool family was a prominent family in Epps and had recently moved in town. To welcome the young doctor to the community, Mr. Pool provided their farm house to the family while Dr. Bailey was building their house. During the night Justin left without telling anyone and joined the Army. After getting settled, Leta and grandmother came to Del hi on the train. They were met by granddaddy and Herman driving a surrey. His practice extended in West Carroll Parish and beyond.

Granddaddy finally settled down and became a very prominent citizen as well as a prominent doctor. Besides a busy life in his chosen profession, Dr. Bailey found time to help with many civic activities, which included being chosen as the first Mayor of Epps, seven years service on the local school board and on the Police Jury for two terms in West Carroll Parish. He was also honored on three separate occasions with the Presidency of the Tri-Parish Medical Society, with headquarters at Lake Providence, La. He was active in church , having been a deacon in the Baptist Church for 43 years. He also was a 32nd degree Mason and Shriner. Travel was difficult during the 1920's but he and Nellie went to a Shriner's convention in Birmingham, Alabama, by train and had a great vacation away from the children.

Grandmother was afraid to be alone with the children at night so would always rent one of the rooms to a bachelor. After building the house in Epps, and living in it several years, it burned and the family lost everything. One of the roomer's had bought a historical house in Alabama with many antiques. The furniture had been imported from England. He loved the Baileys so much that he gave them furniture to furnish the house that they were building next to the Lusk Gin on the main highway going through Epps.

Leta Bailey Crow, my mother, who lives in Star City, Arkansas, still has the lovely carved bed and marble top dresser, a unique carved, mirror backed piece for displaying cut glass, and a mahogany marble top table, that grandmother had in the kitchen to roll out dough. It is displayed in a bedroom in her home. Florene Bailey still has the large orrnate dresser. I have the cane bottom chair that grandmother always sat in at the end of the dining table. Other pieces have disappeared over the years.

Only Leta and Herman lived in Epps. Otis was a Louisiana College in ALexandria, Zola had married Gene McDuff In Chase, and Justin had joined the Army.

All of the grandchildren were delivered by Dr. Bailey. One of the most memorable delivery's wasn't the grandchildren but when he delivered black triplets in an old farm house and they were all strong and healthy. The nurse took his picture with the three babies and it appeared fon the front page of the local paper. It was told that this embarassed Nellie, a typical reaction of a southern lady.

Dr. Bailey practiced medicine in all areas of Louisiana. While living in the bayou country he would swim the bayou on a horse to see patients. Once he rode twenty miles on horseback to see a patient and the patient was dead when he arrived. Another time he rode many miles to set a girl's jaw and he only got a cup of coffee, according to Herman Bailey, his youngest son, who would accompnay his father on house calls. After the children were grown and there were no roomers, Nellie would accompany the Doctor on his night calls. This was before heaters in cars so she had a special lap robe that she would use for warmth. The lap robe was black and white plaid. It stayed in the family many years but has now disappeared.

Herman and Leta said, "Dad, smoked a pipe and they would crawl up in his lap and he's let them have a puff." He was not only a great doctor and great granddaddy, but a great father. In many ways he also was ahead of his time. He predicted that someday America would be on socialized medicine and when it happened it would be because of the greed of doctors. We are not far from that period now.

Dr. Bailey would be paid in wood, hams, chickens and pigs during the depression. At one time he had a full pen of pigs. In 1995, Jerry Horne, owner of the Band Museum, in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, related a story to me. "His family was living on a farm in the parish and Dr. Bailey delivered him in 1932, and other members of the family. All his father had as payment was a pig."

One of his best payments was forty acres in Point Coupee Parish. He had a note at the Delhi Bank and was also on the Board of Trustees. He was afraid the bank would go under since so many were closing during the depresion so he disposed of most of his assets. Being afraid that the bank would take the land, he deeded the acreage to my mother, Leta Bailey Crow, during the time that she was at her parents to have her second child, Patricia. It became a bonanza for her as she was paid for a rite a way for the Morganza spillway, has hunting leases, sold timber, and in 1980 received thousands of dollars in oil leases and again in the 90's. She just recently got a $400 hunting lease payment. He was very generous with his children, buying a farm for Zola and Gene McDuff and giving the 100 fertile acre farm, in La Monte, to Otis.

He was also generous with his grandchildren. If they liked something, he tried to get it for them. The story goes that Buddy, Zola's son, loved ice-cream. So he took him to the local Drug Store, that always had a soda fountain during that period, and told him to ear all he wanted. He ate so much that he was sick the rest of the day and the day after. He paid for Buddy to go to Arkansas A & M in the 40's but Buddy didn't like college so enlisted in the army and fought in World War II under General Patton during the allies's invasion of Europe. The army had just advanced into Germany and Buddy was on one of the lead tanks when he was shot and killed. He was buried in Germany at one of the United States cemeteries that buried many of its young soldiers that were fighting to free the world of Hitler's tyranny.

All the grandchildren loved Granddaddy and Grandmother Bailey and loved to visit with their parents. Typhoid fever was a scare in the summer so every summer the children would visit, Dr. Bailey would vaccinate them. Summer became a time of year to visit that the children dreaded. Florene, who's family lived on a farm near Epps, said she was afraid of him because of the shots. Billie, my sister, and I lived in Arkansas and we loved to visit but we too started dreading to go on visits in the summer because the shots hurt so bad and made you sick.

We went for a weeki's visit one summer and had fun during the day playing with our cousins, Ruth and Florene, who lived on farms out from Epps. We also enjoyed the three o'clock coffee break that our grandpaents had as a ritual everyday, especially because granddaddy would give us coffee that was half milk and half coffee. This was a no-no at home in Arkansas. The first week was enjoyable but since the grandparents went to bed at 8 o'clock and the sun was still up and children were still playing Billie and I decided we were ready to go home. Since grandmother wouldn't let us write that we were ready to come home, a letter was received the day that our parents were to come get us. The letter said, "Since you are having such a good time you can stay another week" We were so disappointed that granddaddy got in the car that afternoon and drove us to Arkansas. He made two unhappy girls really happy.

Granddaddy and grandmother lived across the highway and on the other side of the road was the railroad tracks. The house had a front porch that we would sit on during the day and watch the trains go by. Billie and I would wave at the conductor and he would wave back. After we got older, grandmother told us we were getting too old to wave at the conductors anymore. She was such a proper southern lady.

Dr. Bailey had a heart attack during the middle 30's while living in Epps. All the children were grown and had moved away. Wanting to be near one of the children, he and grandmother built a house next to my parents in Star City, Arkansas, and moved in 1937 thinking it would be easy to get an Arkiansas Medical License. With politics involved in a small town, he was unable to get a license. They moved back to Epps and applied through Louisiana to secure an Arkansas license. After securing his Arkansas Medical License, they moved back to Arkansas in 1939. He was so well liked in Epps, according to my cousin, Carroll Crow. Because of his health, he decided to stay in Arkansas.

I loved having my grandparents next door. I remember lying on the floor while grandmother gave out my spelling words. She was a large woman and I loved climbing up in her legs.

Grandmother contacted diabetes late in life and I remember granddaddy giving her insulin shots everyday. She couldn't have sweets so at night she and granddaddy would have a helf grapefruit before retiring to bed. I made a point to be over there every night. That was a real high light of my day.

Grandmother was an introverted person and never visited people so granddaddy would take her for a drive every afternoon. Since she could have an ice cream or coke once a week that would be one of their stops at the Crow Drug Store, owned by my parents, on their afternoon drives. I don't believe that I've ever known a couple that was more devoted to each other.

During World War II, the doctor and Nellie moved to Sterlington, La. and he served as head otf the First Aid Clinic of the Dixie Ordinance Works, one of the war plants, but kept their house in Arkansas. They lived in an old plantation house out from Sterlington and a friend and I went to visit. The family had several children and we had fun. During the summer they moved to Monroe. Billie and I went to visit. We would take the bus downtown to see movies. I remember first seeing a movie about the Jews being persecuted in Germany. It made me sad and made a big impression about the cruelty that people can cause.

To move again at my grandparents age took courage. Mother related the reason, "All the doctors had left Star City and granddaddy was being overworked at his age and being in bad health. He felt if he left, the city would find another doctor, which they did." Guess that restlessness resurfaced, also.

Grandmother got sick when I was in the ninth grade.a Granddaddy took her to the hospital in Monroe. When the doctors operated they found that she had pancreatic cancer. She only survied a few days longer. I was greatly saddened by her death.

Granddaddy moved in with our family and rented his house. He was so good to Billie and me. We loved having him live with us. He would read a lot, in fact, we gave all his books to the First Baptist church library after he was gone. I remember him sitting in the back yard under the pecan tree, barefooted, reading. When he was a child, he had almost cut his foot off and the skin overlapped because it hadn't been stitched.

He semi-retired after gandmother's death and only delivered babies. He delivered over three or four thousand babies during his eighty years and all in the homes, never in hospitals. He never charged more that Fifty dollars for a delivery. I still meet strangers that tell me that my granddaddy delivered them. He was very kind to widows and didn't charge them if he knew they were struggling financially. When he moved to Arkansas he had a thick ledger, with payments due, that he never billed the people. Mother still has the ledger in a trunk at her house.

Gene Yarbrough, the mayor of Star City, gives granddaddy credit for saving his life. When he was a baby, he contacted diphtheria. Dr. Bailey sent him to the Children's Hospital in Little Rock. Because their car was old and the road from Star City to Pine Bluff was gravel, he was afraid they might not make it so followed them to Little Rock in his car. Gene had to spend a couple of weeks in the hospital.

Patience was a virtue with the doctor when administering to his patients and healing with his grandchildren. He had gone on a call out from Pine Bluff and I had just learned to drive. I decided to back the car up while he was in the house seeing the patient. It had been raining and I got the Car stuck. Instead of fussing at me, he said, "You were real smart not to continue trying to get out and getting the car stuck further."

No one could buy a car during World War II. Since he was a doctor, he got the first car in Star City after the war. When I learned to drive, I would chauffeur him on calls. In his later years, he hit a tree so wouldn't drive snymore so I was his full time chauffeur taking him to Monroe and Winnfield while in high school.

When I was in high school and only 16, Sue Erwin Blaagg and I drove to Monroe to get granddaddy. I thought I was so big traveling that far without an adult.

One summer Billie and I drove him to Winnfield to see his brothers and sister. It was the first time we had met his family and all their children. We had a real good time. Uncle Bryan and Aunt Neb had a large house full of antiques. Uncle Bryan still had his car that was made a long time before the war. I don't think he even drove anymore. Leash was their only child and she had gone to Sofia Newcomb in New Orleans in 1900. Her husbband worked for the railroad and they never had children. I went to Winnfield several years ago to do research on the family and found that Leash had died before her husband and all the property was left to his family in Alexandria. The house was still there and two men from Atlanta had bought the house.

On April 14, 1850, Dr. Buford Lee Bailey, age 77 was honored by the Arkansas Medical Society when he officially became a member of the "50 year Club". He received a gold lapel button signifying membership in this select club.

Granddaddy continued to have heart attacks after moving to Star City. He would have one in the middle of the night after he moved in with us, and it would scare me so much. I remember that he would lie so very still on his back.

Granddaddy was visiting Uncle Otis in Sterlington when his kidneys blocked. The doctor told Otis if they blocked again to rush him to the hospital. It happened again and according to Leta, Otis put him in the car and rushed him to the Oschner Foundation hospital in New Orleans, blowing his horn as he raced through small towns. He had the operation and the operation brought on the worse heart attck that he had had. My mother caught the train in Pine BLuff and went down to stay with him and Aunt Zola came from Monroe. He stayed at the hospital seven weeks so they would alternate staying with him. Grandaddy had always said that he did not want to be kept alive with tubes. He thought he wouldn't survive. To keep him from pulling the tubes out, mother and Aunt Zola would sit by his bed all day to keep him from pulling them out. Mother made two trips to New Orleans and was there during Mardi Gras and I was so envious, wishing that I could have gone. She would bring home beads and trinkets thrown from the floats. I later lived in New Orleans, twice, and Mardi Gras was just as much fun as I had imagined as a child. I was even luckier because by that time I had children and I could enjoy Mardi Gras with them.

Granddaddy went to Epps in 1952, to see his good friends the Lusks, and fell while he was there. When he got back to Sterlington, Otis had to put him in the hospital in Monroe. Having survived many heart attacks, he had his last one while in the hospital in Monroe and died. Ralph, Uncle Herman's son was in the room when he died. (Ralph had planned to be a doctor but that made such an impression that he changed his mind. Ralph later became a lawyer in New Orleans, Louisiana).

Dr. Buford Lee Bailey died at the age of eighty, a lose to me of the greatest granddaddy anyone could ever have and also my best friend and mentor. Quoting from the Newspaper article, when he received the Membership in the "50-year Club.", Dr. Bailey can relate many experiences in his long years of service, and the high esteem in which he is held by all who know him, illustratees the Christian manner in which he performed the many acts of mercy." is a tribute that few achieve in life.

To have a granddaddy and grandmother that loved me and people the way they did has been a great inspiration to me and an influence on my life. I still think about them often in my memories of great times. This is mainly a story about my grandfather but without the love and caring from my grandmother his life would not be as inspiring. Their lives were a real story of Love.

Obit of Millier Martin:

Aunt Millie, Negress, former slave dies, served white folks. A slow procession composed entirely of negroes drove its way over the hills and hollows and around the curves of Ward 8 Saturday afternoon a procession lead by a hearrse which was followed of a cosmopolitan assortment of vehicles, buggies, wagons, automobiles and a few men and woman on horseback. The procession drew up at length at the old Union Cemetery. Five husky colored men lifted a box from the hearse and to the cadence of a solemn chant lead a march into the cemetery depositing the casket beside a new made grave. Then followed more singing which had the weird cadence of the tribal songs of the primitive black. The beat of hidden tom-toms echoed ghost like in the wailing strains. The colored parson delivered a funeral oration assisted by the entire assembly which chimed in at intervals. The casket was slowly lowered into the grave. An L & A freight train whistling as it sped westward broke the silence that followed. The funeral was over. Thus ended the life of Aunt Millie Martin who had been born in slavery almost ninty two years, and who though had been freed by the legal edict of President Lincoln had continued a servant all of her life remaining true to the traditions of a race of whom the scriptures say have been "hewers of wood and drawers of water" since time immemorial. Aunt Millie known even to the little boys and girls of Winnfield was born on the Jackson plantation of parents who had roamed the restless wilds of Liberia is primitive tribesmen. As a child she was given to Mrs. John Dickerson as a present. When freed she married Ike Martin who survivves her and with whom she lived happily and faithfully until her death. Aunt Millie has never wanted to be and has never been anything more than a servant. She has served in the homes of Edward Eagles, Tom Milling, Riley Bevill, John Abel, and Fate Tannehill. Since their marriage, she and her husband Uncle Ike have served Mr. and Mrs. B.W. Bailey. In her later years Aunt Millie became almost entirely an object of charity. The Morning Star Methodist Church, of which she is a member, contributed to her support as well as the Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, also Mr. and Mrs. B.W. Bailey. She was a good old darkey honored and respected by white and black alike. Aunt Millie's life had indeed been one of service to white folks. She had assisted in bringing them into the world, she had nursed them along the way and helped when it had become necessary in their burial. Hundreds of white people were indepted to her for her fidility, efficiency and kindness. While some of them did if all of the white folks for who she had "done some loving kindness carried a blossom to her grave she would have slept Christmas eve beneath a blanker of flowers." Aunt Millie was born in slavery. It was her job to serve and she did her job well earning the rest which Mother Earth gives when at the end she calls back to her bosom all of her children, discriminating neither between white or black, master of servant, hunter or hunted nor rick or poor. She rests now in the same kindly embrace and in the same manner with the masters who owned her decades ago.

Obituaries "Uncle" Ike Martin, 1935, Winn Parish, LA Submitted by Greggory E. Davies. From June 6, 1915 Winn Parish Enterprise "Uncle" Ike Martin, Nearly 100 years old negro slave dies "Uncle" Ike Martin, negro, a familiar face on the streets of Winnfield, died in the T & G quarters Tuesday of this week. His white friends made donations of cash so that he could have a "fit" funeral. According to information gained from Mrs. B.W. Bailey, "Uncle" Ike was between 95 and 97 years of age. He was not over 100 years old, Mrs. Bailey said, as some people believed. "He belonged to my grandmother, Mrs. E. A. Jackson, who lived about four miles from Winnfield, and he lived on my father's place (J.J. Dickerson) practically all my life there," Mrs. Bailey said "According to stories I have heard, he was the son of a negro slave brought from Congo, Africa, and traded to a plantation owner in Virginia. His father was a very huge and strong negro. His father was traded to a plantatin owner in Caldwell Parish and while he and his wife were there, "Uncle" Ike was born. "Uncle" Ike was traded to my grandmother, Mrs. Jackson and here he married "Aunt Millie at one time operated a ten room boarding house on the old bottling works lot, and "Uncle" Ike farrmed. Following "Aunt " Millie's death, Uncle Ike was fed by his white friends and taken care of by them until his death. He was very kind and I never saw him out of humor in my life, Mrs. Bailey said.

In a difficulty Sheriff Bailey Gets Cut

Leeper Does The Work

Altercation took place in the Court House Saturday -is not seriously wounded-Leeper is being tried.

At about 9 o'clock Saturday morning a difficulty occurred at the Court House between Sheriff B.W. Bailey and J.M. Leeper in which the Sheriff received several painful cuts from a knife in the hands of Leeper. The affair was very quiet and but few knew anything of it till sometime after it had occured. Just what caused the difficulty is not known as all parties are mum on the subject, but it is stated that it came about over a board bill, Leeper having boarded at the Comrade hotel, which is owned by the Sheriff. It is also stated that there was ill feeling already existing between the men before the board bill came up.

Sheriff Bailey was sweeping out his office at the court house when he was approached by Mr. Leeper and it is stated that Leeper began abusing him. He struck Leeper said a fight ensued, Leeper using a knife. Some men in the court house was attracted by the scuffle and soon parted the men but not before the sheriff had received several cuts. Dr. E. H. Purne was summoned and as soon as the Sheriff could reach his hotel an examination was made. He was found to be cut across the bowels, a stab in the left thigh, and a cut on the back and hip. Only the stab in the thigh is thought to be dangerous as it is deep and ugly but complications could set up which would make matters serious.

Mr. Leeper was at once arrested and placed in jail to await the outcome of the Sheriff's wounds and will be kept there until the Sheriff is out of danger. The affair is unfortunate as both men are prominent in local business affairs and are among our best citizens.

As the Sentinel goes to press (Thursday) Leeper is being given a preliminary hearing and probably will be released on bond as the Sheriff is getting along fairly well and will be up within a week or so.

From Winn Parish History Winnfild, La. 1985 Published by Winn Parish Historical Society, Library of Congress Catalog Card No.l 85-051638, Publications, Consultant Jodi Head, Shreveport, La. Printed by Taylor Publishing Company Dallas, Texas, Copyright 1985

Bryan W. Bailey was born here in 1869 soon after the Civil War. He was the son of a farmer who moved from Georgia to Louisiana in 1859. His family lived eight miles out on the Old Alexandria Road, and young Bailey had to walk eight miles to and from the small rustic schoolhouse presided over by a "Mr. Taylor". His educational opportunities were indeed almost nill. He never had a high school course and books in the parish were scarcer than the proverbial "hen's teeth." The pioneer lad devoured every book or scrap of reading matter that came his way. When book agents began to come through the country and he had money to buy them, he pruchased many fine sets of books and had a good library in his spacious and well landscaped home on St. John St. His reading materials covered politics, economics, history, literature, agriculture, nature study as novels. Even when he was 90 years old and his sight had failed so that he could read only with a powerful magnifying lens, friends would find him almost always squinting at the pages of some book or magazine. His daughter, Mrs. Leary Rickerson, secured for him a Talking book Machine. With this he was able to keep up with world news and many developments. When he was stricken by the final illness which proved fatal, he was reading Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With The Wind."

He published one of Winn Parish's earliest newspapers, "The Comrade." He and Mrs. Bailey ran the Comrade Hotel located across the street on the south side of the Court House.

In 1900 he was elected sheriff of Winn Parish on the Populist ticket and was the last public official elected here from that party, as it soon passed out of existence.

In the early 1900's Mr Bailey sparked oil drilling on Cedar-Creek, south of Winnfield and lived to see a promising Wilcox oil spread erupt in the Joyce=Colgrade and Crossroads fields.

He helped to get the Northwest Louisiana Game and Fish Preserve started by securing legislative funds to build the dam on Saline Bayou west of Winnfield.

He worked for good roads in the parish and had much to do with laying out the fine wide streets which are still an invaluable asset to Winnfield. He and Judge R.W. Oglesby worked with a group of civic minded women to get cows and hogs off the streets.

Local citizens said that he was a man of remarkale gifts. Perhaps we shall not see so many men of his caliber again, because only the hardships and challenges of a pioneer country can produce such sturdiness and independence of character.

A few months before his death Mr. Bailey made a request that the following be inscribed on his gravestone: "He died like he lived, fighting for full recognition for the rights of the underpriviledged." This was read at his funeral service at the First Methodist Church on February 5, 1961. He was survived by his widow and daughter and one sister, Mrs. Maude Long.

Robert was killed in World War II when the escort carrier he was on the U.S.S. Liscome Bay was bombed by a Japanese submarine on November 22, 1943. It is believed by someone on his ship that his body was never recovered. There is a tombstone at Sardis Cemetery in Winnfield, La.

Letter dated April 27, 2000 To Linda Rollins from Leonard J. Bohm to Linda Bailey Rollins concerning Robert Bailey.

I am Leonard Bohm. It was nice to visit with you by phone. I am always willing to help anyone who had lost a loved one when our ship was sunk.

I went through the papers again after we talked and found Robert B. Bailey S2c on the lost crew page. Also find a copy of our ship with a load of airplanes, we got at Alameda, Ca. and took to San Diego, Ca.

You asked if there was a body in the grave, I seriously doubt that very much. I suggest you go to the people who placed the stone, if possible, they should have a record of who ordered it. You might go to the County Courthouse and check for records, take records with you.

I do know some of the records at the Naval Archives can only be gotten by going there yourself. We got all the records from a man who went there and sent them to me. I am sure there are no more there that we don't have.

The first "Baby flattop" to be lost as a result of enemy action in the Pacific, the USS LISCOMB BAY was torpedoed by an enemy submarine on the 24th of November 1943. She was the only ship lost during 19 major raids against 15 Japanese bases by our big carrier task forces which ranged from the Solomon to Marcus Islands, and from the Marshalls to the Marianas and Palau groups. The LISCOME BAY was the only ship lost in the Gilbert Islands operation.

The escort aircraft carrier, USS LISCOME BAY, was built as a Maritime Commission hull in the yards of the Kaiser Company, Incorporated at Vancouver, Washington. Before completion the ship was converted to an escort carrier and acquired by the Navy on the 7th of August 1943. Following the usual procedure of naming Navy escort carriers for islands, bays, and sounds of the United States (as well as important United States operations, battles, and engagements), the CVE 56 was named for Liscome Bay on the coast of Alaska.

The LISCOME BAY was placed in commission on the same day of her acquisition--August 7, 1943.

The LISCOME BAY was fitted out at the Naval Air Station, Astoria, Oregon, during the remainder of August and early September, after which she proceeded to the Puget Area on September 7th . She next steamed for Seattle, Washington, arriving on the 14th and two days later weighed anchor for San Francisco, California. After mooring at the Alameda Air Station in San Francisco Bay on September 18th the escort carrier got underway for San Diego, California on the 20th.

Arriving in San Diego waters on September 22nd the LISCOME BAY underwent intensive shakedown drills and exercises off San Diego and San Pedro until October 21st when she set course for Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii. On the 28th of October the carrier entered Pearl Harbor, mooring at Ford Island. After additional drills and operational exercises in Hawaiian waters the LISCOME BAY set forth upon what was to be her first and last battle mission--that of the Gilbert Islands invasion.

The U.S. naval force, of which the LISCOME BAY was a part, invaded the Gilberts on November 20, 1943. After a series of raids in the south and central Pacific and a 7 day systematic poinding from the air, the most powerful U.S. naval force assembled in the Pacific up to that time threw 1,500 tons of shells and 1,000 tons of bombs at Tarawa Atoll and Makin Island on that date. At the same time, Mill and Jaluit were poinded by interdiction raids. Besides the LISCOME BAY, this great force included the carriers SARATOGA< ESSEX< BUNKER HILL< LEXINGTON< YORKTOWN< PRINCETON< INDEPENDENCE< BELLEAU WOOD< COWPENS< MONETEREY< CHENANGO< NASSAU< and BARNES.

The invasion bombardment began at 5 a.m. and 76 hours later Tarawa and Makin Islands were in United States hands--at a tremendous cost. The invasion and occupation of the Gilberts was supported by approximately 900 carrier-based aircraft, which flew 2,270 action sorties in a wide variety of missions. The more important of these were the neutralization of enemy air bases, direct support of the landings and subsequent ground operations, interception of enemy air raids, and diversionary raids such as the strike on Nauru Island which preceded the landings. In these actions, the LISCOME BAY'S planes played their part well, participating mainly in the operations against Nakin Island. Throughout the operation the Japs attacked viciously by air but these attacks were successfully driven off by the carrier-based planes.

When the islands were finally in U.S. hands the forces began a retirement. In the early hours of November 24, 1943, aboard the USS LISCOME BAY, planes were being readied for their flights at dawn. There was no warning of a sumbarine in the area until about 5:10 a.m. when a lookout shouted; "Christ, here comes a torpedo!" The missile struck an instant later with a shattering roar, the lights went out, and flames licked high above the flight deck.

Explosions followed. Bombs and ammunition were set off, and some of the little carrier's planes were buried into the sea. The LISCOME BAY'S death struggle was short--she went down some twenty minutes later surrounded by flaming oil--but from the flame--lighted melee of confusion and destruction emerged reports of conspicious gallantry and courage that will long be remembered in the Navy's traditions.

Mortally wounned, one officer organized repair parties, tried to get the fire hoses into operation, helped wounded men over the side, and when hope was finaally abandoned went into the water himself. There he lost consciousness and was carried along by Lieutenant Commander J.R. Rowe, Medical Corps, USN, until the doctor discovered he was dead.

One sailor, trapped below decks, finally groped his way to a ladder so overcrowded he couldn't make his way up. He then climbed a su heated steam pipe, severely burning both his hands. To escapt the flames another man climbed up electric wires forty feet to a gun plot. An officer whose appendix has been removed only six days before, swam to safety; another who had undergone the same sort of operation was drowned before he could be picked up.

Survivors praised the "splendid" conduct of Lieutenant Commander Rowe, the senior medical officer, whose concern for the safety of his patients and efforts in administering to the wounded aboard the rescue ship, despite a leg injury, were outstanding.

"The explosion, " said Dr. Rowe, "came with no warning. There was a yellow flash and a roar. As I started to pick myself up, there was a second explosion and I was again on the deck."

Dr. Rowe rushed to the operating room to get the patients ready for the evacuation. The flight deck was aflame,, and Dr. Rowe made a number of trips back and forth through the sick bay area, getting the group together and picking up first aid gear.

"It was evident." he said, "from the amount of gray smoke that we would have to evacuate this area. The smoke was very thick and we made the way up mainly by the feel of fresh air. Some of the ladders were blocked by burning debris."

"As we went up we found the first wounded man. He had a broken leg and moving caused him severe pain. There were only tjwo of us to help him, so we decided he would have the best chance if we allowed him to drop into the water. I gave him morphine, put him over the side and alllowed him to drop."

B.W. Hunt, Boatswain, USN, said that "some time later I saw this man picked up. I am convinced the doctor's action saved his life."

Lieutenant Commander M.U. Beebe, squadron commander, declared, "The Captain and the crew are to be commended for their service." In telling of his experience, Lieutenant Commander said:

"I had checked the weather and flight deck crew, and returned to my room. There was a terrific rumbling throughout the ship, and an explosion that lifted me off the deck. The next thing I know I was tr ying to get out the door in the darkness, but I made the flight deck and found it ablaze. There was oil burning on the water, too, near the Bow."

"The captain ordered all hands to go aft as far as possible, then go over the side. He and I started aft on what was left of the catwalk,. I remembered where an aircraft life raft was stowed, and managed to get it. The fire was spreading rapidly, making it apparent that we weren't going to get very far. I called to the captaain to go over at this point, but he did ntt answer---

Beebe was unable to locate Captain Wiltsie, and concluded the skipper had gone farther aft. He then went downn a line to the water, and made the raft which was floating but had not yet been inflated. Several men collected and swam the raft away from the ship for perhaps a hundred yards where it was inflated and other survivors were picked up.

"Shortly afterward," Lieutenant Commander Beebe said, "there were more explosions and the ship made her final dive, bow out of the water until the last."

Daylight crept over the sea about this time and Beebe's party was picked up by another warship.

Lietutenant Gardner Smith, a radio announcer before the way, went to the open bridge to look for the Captain and found it in shambles. The flight control platform was blocked by the bull horn which had fallen, pinning down two sailors. Both were still alive. The bull horn was so tightly wedged that several attempts had to be made before the men were released. On the bridge it was too hot to put a hand on the rail and the word was being passed to abandon ship.

"Once in the water I tried to swim away from the ship but the current carried it down on me, " Lieutenant Smith said, "I noticed rounds of ammunition going off in all directions. I picked up a seaman and we swam aft, beyond the stern. A depth charge went off, injuring two sailors who were with me but it did not hurt me.

"I was on my back at the time and not over 100 feet from what was left of the stern. The hangar deck was ablaze, the fantail gone, a portion of the after starboard side was gone, and the ship sank stern first with in three minutes after my getting clear of the stern."

Aerographer L.D. Blakely was in the water and watched the ship turn slowly over as it began its death plunge.

"I watched her go," he said, "and heard her death gurgle. There was no suction, only a loud hissing."

After the torpedo hit, Blakely said, "The ship was heaving and sounded as if she was breaking up. The lights had gone, but burning oil, deck and planes make it almost as light as day within. We went outside and conditions there railings torn off, life rafts gone, oil everywhere, fire raging, and ammunition exploding--made no think the starboard side was safer. With some of the men, I tried to get through the passageway to starboard but there were more explosions and fire broke out, so we stumbled back. More explosions followed.

"I went forward in a stream of men. Some were jumping over the side and I stopped others from throwing boxes of ammunition overboard and crawled onto the flight deck. We tried to organize a fire party to move the water hose but there was no water and no pressure. After slipping in the oil and crawling over tangled wire, I went down the line into the water."

A Gunner's Mate, first class, Hubert Joseph Bissett, USN, said, "I would like to bring attention to the conduct of R.L. Abbot, Seaman, 2/C. He remained at his station and helped to stamp out several fires and threw hot ammunition overboard. This was the last I saw of him until I reached our raft about 200 yards from the ship. I asked him where his life jacket was and found out he had given it to an injured man. After our rescue I talked to some of our men and was told that Abot had helped an injured sailor from the burning flight deck, giving him his life jacket. This action must have saved that man's life."

Chief Shipfitter L.A. Ashley, who was in the shipfitter's shop, gave this account:

"I had just finished mustering the repair party when there was a heavy exploston which blew an elevator loose and caused a large fire. I was close to the shop door and the blast was so severe it blew my clothes, including my shoes and rubber life belt, right off me. We had no communications because the power and lights went off.

"One of the repair party asked, "What shall we do now, Chief?" The surrounding area was a mass of flames by this time.

"The only way out was to get a fire plug, so I called "Let's make a run for it through the flames and try to get water on the fire!

"When we got past the elevator pit we found the way blocked by more fire on the hangar deck, so we worked our way up twisted ladders and found a mass of wreckage. We made it to the catwalk on the flight deck level and broke out fire hoses but it was useless. There was nothing we could do to save the ship, so I went over the side and swam clear."

Of such were the stories of heroism, sacrifice, and horror that came out of the fiery holocaust in which the LISCOME BAY met her end.

Out of the LISCOME BAY'S total complement of 911 men, 53 officers, and 591 enlisted men were declared missing or dead in the tragedy.

At the time of her torpedoing, the CVE 56 was under the command of C aptain J.D. Wiltsie, USN, and was carrying the flag of Rear Admiral H.M. Mullinix. Both of these men were among the number of those who died with the ship.

A Navy Department Communique, dated December 2, 1943, read as follows:

"1. The USS LISCOME BAY )an escort carrier_ was sunk as a result of being torpedoed by a submarine on November 24, 1943, in the Gilbert Islands operation.

"2. The next of kin of casualties aboard the LISCOME BAY will be notified as soon as possible."

The USS LISCOME BAY earned but one engagement star on the Asiatic-Pacific Area Service Ribbon in her short World War II career. This battle star was awarded for the Gilbert Island Operation--November 13 to December 8, 1943. Her dates of participation were November 20-24, 1943.

Arvel Leon and Myrtle Long Carter

I am the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Long and Maude Bailey Long. My father was born in March 1860 and he died in 1948. My mother was born February 22, 1874, sister of Bryant W. Bailey-a former well known sheriff of Winn Parish and banker, and she died February 5, 1933. (Tomb stone says she died 1961).

My only sister, seven years older is Lucy Gusting Long Bowen. She and her husband, Alvis A. Bowen, lived at one time in El Dorado but mostly they resided in various points in Texas

I attended school in Wiannfield where I was graduated in 1933. On October 13, I married Arvel Leon Carter, son of William and Della Mixon Carter of Calvin, La. Arvel was an electrician and owned and operated an electrical shop in Winnfield.

We were parents of two daughters, Elizabeth Ann, born October 28, 1937, and Betty Louise, born November 19, 1940. Both daughters attended school in Winnfield. They were active in school sports events, especially basketball.

In 1955 Elizabeth, sponsored by Winn Rock Company, was voted Louisiana Forest Festival Queen. She was crowned by her cousin, U.S. Senator Russell B. Long, who was in Winnfield at the time. She enjoyed the many activities associated with her year as forestry queen.

Elizabeth married David L. Addington on March 17, 1955 in Vicksburg, Mississippi. They live in Zachary, Louisiana and have three children, Becky Lynn, Bryan and terri Denise.

1.3a Martha Augustus Bailey*
Birth: 1 Sep 1836, Georgia
Death: Apr 1906

Marriage Records note middle name as Augustus. The Book I Want To Know lists her middle name as Ann. Elizabeth is her second middle name.

According to "I Want to Know" by Lawson Arrington, they were issued marriage license on July 4, 1854, but were not married until a year later. Of course, this could have been a typographical error, but then there could have been some changes in plans. Martha was the daughter of Bryant and Terrissa Bailey who were neighbors to the Owen Family during the time of the betrothal. James lived with his mother and step father, Mary A. and Solomon Owens, Randolph County, Georgia, until his marriage. Sometime in 1856 or 1857 James and Martha, along with the Bryant Bailey family, moved into Louisiana and settled near Tide, Louisiana, Winn Parish, about ten miles southeast of Winnfield.

On December 15, 1866 Martha Ann Bailey Arrington and Benjamin F. Lovett were married in the home of her parents, Bryant and Terrisa Bailey. Apparently the marriage was a great comfort to the young Arrington boys. Since, Bryant Bailey was only two years of age when his blood father died, he knew no other male parent.

Martha died April, 1906 and was buried in Old Antioch Cemetery, on La. Highway 1228 W., Atlanta, la.

Birth: 21 Nov 1857
Death: 14 Apr 1940

Known as MC. (said MAC) signed all his papers MC Arrington.

After "Mac's" father died in 1863, his mother, Martha Bailey Arrington, married Benjamin F. Lovett about January, 1865. Mac and his two brothers were living in a small log cabin near the Lovett home in 1870. Homer Milton died sometime in 1871 and Bryant Bailey married in 1880. Mac, still a bachelor, left the Tide Community and took habitation between Verda and Dry Prong, Grant Parish, Louisiana, in a community known as Black Creek. Here he met Parandy Elizabeth Faircloth and they were married January 6, 1890. Perandy's father, Allen Faircloth, a native of Florida had moved to LA when a very Young man. Her mother died when Perandy was only seven years of age, leaving six children, two girls and four boys, the oldest 12 years and the youngest one year of age. Her father later married and had other children.

According to "I Want To Know" a menber of the Lovett family seems to remember that Martha Ann, the mother, said that Homer was born an afflicted child and was never able to walk. Dewey Chellette, a grandson of Martha Ann and Benjamin Lovett, revealed that while a very young child, he had played with some of the playthings left by Homer Milton. He specifically remembers a toy hatchet, with a nail pull slot on the side of the blade. Apparently afflicted Homer was a concern of the entire community.

1.3a.3 Bryant Bailey Arrington
Birth: 17 Oct 1861
Death: 19 Jun 1929

Winn Parish was officially created by the State Legislature in 1851 from lands originally belonging to the bordering Parishes of Rapides, Natchitoches and Catahoula. Official organization was completed in 1852. Then, later Winn Parish gave up part of it's original area for the formation of a new southern neighbor, Grant Parish. This new Parish included a part of the original Natchitoches territory. Therefore, Grant parish was established March 4, 1869. This explains the reason why Bryant was born in Winn Prish and, without moving his location of residence, found himself living in Grant Parish, LA. The union One room school was in session from January 1 to January 28 1876 in the hills of Grant Parish. A certain young man of 17 years of age was in attendance. It is not known if he was seeking an advanced elementary education, or interested in wooing a certain young lady that, also happened to be a member of Miss Mary E. Moore's school, who taught that student body. Regardless of the real purpose, love finally prevailed when Bryant Bailey Arrington and Annie Hanie Goree were united in matrimonny two years later.
It was a beautiful quiet March morning at the Bryant Bailey Arrington small plantation, located in the flat woods of Grant parish, until his wife, Hannie (That is the way he addressed her) woke him early and explained to him that their first baby was about to be born. Bryant immediately became horrified - his first experience with such an ordeal - so, his first thought was to seek help. The nearest doctor miles away - could not arrive in time to help. Bryant rushed over to their closest neighbor, his mother, Ann Lovett, and in his shy manner declared the expectancy at the Bryant Arrington House. Within a very short time two or three of the neighborly women were available for the occasion. About midmorning, Marcy 23, 1881, a new member arrived in the Arrington household. After much deliberation and many vetoed suggestions, the newcomer was named Gilbert Berian, a part of wich honored the Grandmother's brother, Berian Bailey.
At this time, Bryant Bailey, whose name was chosen in honor of his grandfather, Bryant Bailey, was nineteen years of age - approaching his 20th birthday on October seventeenth and Annie Hanie Goree was seventeen years of age, having been born on May 3, 1863. This was a good age for both of them to be extremely proud of their first offspring.
In the Federal census of Winn Prish for the year 1870, the next house number was the home of Bryant's step father, Benjamin F. Lovett and mother Martha Ann Elizabeth. They had two sons and two daughters. Bryant's father, James Arrington, died while in the Confederate army during the Civil War when Bryant was about two years of age. Also, residing in the Lovett household, at this time, was Bryants older brother, John McPherson B.
The little fellow, Gilbert Berian, weighing 7 1/2 pounds at birth, with dark brown hair and brown eyes, turned out to be the father of the writer (Lawson Arrington).

One member of the McPerson Arrington family has contributed a logical and interesting story that he vaguely remembers someone told him, about Bryant before he left Grant Parish. It seems Bryant had heard a rumor of a certain place where some money, or gold, had been buried during the Civil War, and thought, with some effort in prospecting for such desirable treasure, it might be profitable. Bryant made a visit to his brother, Mac, and tried to persuade him to join in a search for the "loot", but Mac, not being a great believer in the haunts of sunken treasure, declined the journey to the rainbow's end, and the next time he heard from Bryant, he was living in Sabine Prish. There is no reason to believe this incident had any bearing on Bryant moving his family had any bearing on Bryant moving his family to Sabine Prish, but is most likely a fable to beighten the relations of the two brother family. One must not forget Murrell's Cave - Sabine is in the outlaw strip and Kisatchie has always been the haven of robbers, etc. and many stories about about the area.
Berian, who was fourteen yers of age when the family came to Sabine Parish, said it was a long and rough journey in the two mule drawn wagon. He said, "It was exciting to travel through old Natchitoches and view the nice homes and business houses along the Old Red Rivr bed, and see there was the old Teacher College on the hill". It was a real nice experience for the kiddoes, according to the story about the trip from Dry Prong to Sabine Parish, by way of a two horse drawn wagon.
It seemed to be the trend for the young share-cropper to travel until not only a more lucrative income could be realized, but a more satisfying and peaceful situation could be experienced.
After four or five years of share-crop farming with different well established planters in the Dess, Sabine Parish, Louisiana, Community, Bryant Bailey became conventionally prone to the Carter B. Corley plantation in the "Red Land" community about five miles west of Florien, LA and about three miles east of the Dess Post Office and Store. The family became very satisfied with the location and Bryant began to pursue the idea of purchasing a part of the land. Since Carter B. Corley was deceased, it was necessary for Bryant Bailey to negotiate with the many heirs. After much discussion, the partners in ownership agreed to sell a part of the inherited land. On July 15, 1902, Bryant Bailed purchased from then 92 acres of land described: the NW 1/4 of SW 1/4 and 25 acres more or less in the SW 1/4 of SW 1/4 of Section 33. Also, so much of the W 1/2 of the E 1/2 of SW 1/4 section 33. Township 6, range 11 as lien within lot No. 1 of LaNanana Grant, 27 acres more or less, containing in all 92 acres, for the amount of One hundred and fifty dollars.
Bryant Bailey immediately began constructing a new house on the property. Bryant Bailey was a versatile handy man, having the ability to perform practiclly any task necessary on the farm of the house - such as carpentry, blacksmith, fencing, etc. He was often called on to repair plow points, plow stocks, wagons, harnesses, and eventually built a small machine shop to serve the community. He fabricated all his materials necessary to repair or replace any equipment part required, and as a result, the demand for his services grew to the juncture of relinquishing somewhat his farm program. The earnings for the shop services were not very lucrative, but the barter through farm produce, some cash, and good will was very gratifying.
Bryant Bailey added twenty acres of land to his property on January 16, 1906 by a purchase of land adjoining his property from J.H. Williams, Sr. for the amount of $100.00

1.3a.3.1 Gilbert Berian Arrington
Birth: 23 Mar 1881, Grant Parish, Louisiana
Death: 27 Sep 1950

Gilvert Berian grew normally with an unusual eagerness to learn, and his curiousity to explore the unknown was a noticeable trait at an early age. Since his father was a farmer on a small rented plantation in the thick woods of Grant Parish, Berian (the name that identified him by his family) was eposed to a great deal of vegetation and wild life. The small creek meandering its course near the farm with the water level determined by the amount of rainfall, often flowless, furnished a pride of recreation - fishing and swimming. The whip-o-will and the bob-white furnished all the music production available in his world of entertainment. Constantly in his mind as he grew was an awareness that there was something beyond the woody horizon worth exploring. At seven years of age, in the early part of September, Berian enrolled in a small country two-room school about three miles from his home. Of course, the only means of travel accessible to him was feet wise, (shanks mare), but that was the only transportation school children knew, including those of the neighborhood that accompanied him on his daily trips. The daily travel did not seem to be a burden to him, since he soon became interested in the process of learning to read and write. At this time he had a brother, Oliver Cleveland, who was three years of age (born November 11, 1884), as well as a brother playmate who added to the excitement of being alive.
Three months of school passed by very fast, but not without a continuous flow of daily farm chores to be attended to after school hours. December came in with Chirst-sters, even though very little cash was available to entice a haughty Santa basket of toys, they enjoyed the homemade things that were available. An average Christmas day brought some fruit, few nuts, a box of seeded raisins still on the vine stem and mother's special made ten cakes. Then a visit to the neighbor's house in the afternoon to view the blessings of Santa's visits noon to view the blessings of Santa's visits and, of course, to fill the tummies with flavorful coffee, dripped through homeparched ground coffee beans, and tasty holiday pastries.
Time marched on for the Bryant B. Arrington family, and farming produced its ups and its very bad owns. As Berian grew, he was more and more dpended upon for the operation of the required routine chores of the small plantation, and school seemed to be a luxury, which did not demand as much attention and care as the duties on the farm. There was land to clear for more cultivation, plowing, planting, caring for a few chickens and cows, etc.
Berian's appetite for learning was never satisfied, and he felt that school was a greater necessity than the demands on the homestead. His desire for education was somewhat soothed with a few books and magazines borrowed from friends, and occasionally from the small school he intermittently attended.
A sister, Ollie, joined the family in 1890 and then another sister, Exie, was introduced two years later. nd, of course, these additional members of the family required more home duties, but interjected a spray of joy. Oliver had taken more responsibilities, and the two boys became closely related, in spite of the occasional battle outbursts. Tempers were very prominent and de3manded a parental penalty of intervals, which was a part of the leaning process in living together.
Berian developed a special interest in mathematics being very handy with figures as he grew older, and in the later years of his life, was often called upon to solve very difficult mathematical problems.
On September 14, 1891, Bryant Bailey sold 240 acres of land to J.P. Moreland and W.E. Goodson for the amount of One hundred eighty dollars cash, (recorded in Book A, Page 487, Winn Parish Courthouse, Winnfield, Louisiana.)
At this time, Bryant Bailey was living in Grant Parish on a piece of land adjoining the property of Mac Arrington.
Sometime in 1892 or 1893, Bryant Bailey began to become somewhat dissatisfied with his livelihood situation in the hills of Grant Parish and began to look for greener pastures. There were rumors by old and fellow travelers that the cotton production further west, along the red-land strata was very prolific and profitable, so in August of 1895 he made a move, with his family, in that direction. It is not known whether or not Bryant Bailey visited the new territory before he moved his family. The mystery of really why he moved his family into the Parish of Sabine, La. is not known, but most likely, it was the rumors from the west which caused Bryant Bailey to move his family into Sabine Parish, which is one of the extreme western points of Louisiana, near the Sabine River which is the boundary line between La. and Texas. The area seemed to possess many natural advantages to offer for families of small means to locate. It was spread abroad as one of the richest and most prosperous settlements in Sabine Parish, and the inhabitants were known as "Red Landers". The spreading news gave an example of an area settled by a large family of Millers who cultivated the still red lands and were all getting rich. Bryant Bailey just had to go and see, since he was a very ambitious young father and wanted to provide for his family. (Continued under Bryant Bailey Arrington Notes).

1.3a.3.2 Olover CLeveland Arrington
Birth: 11 Nov 1884
Death: 8 Mar 1943, Sabine Parish, Louisiana

Joined Antioch Baptist Church in 1904 in Sabine Parish, Louisiana. about ten miles west of Florien, Louisiana.

Olover was eleven years of age when he came to Sabine Prish, LA. in 1895. He was a practical unassuming type of fellow, yet a responsive affection was blended in his personality. He proved his love for his family by always placing their desires and needs before his own. His oldest son said "In all my life, I never remember, seeing my father unhappy and in a state of worrying - and, this, today, is how I remember him". It was through his love for his relatives that lured him bak to Grant Parish to visit the Williamson, Honeycut and Goree families sometime during the early part of 1907, when he met the lady that became his wife in 1908. On one occasion, while visiting here, Olover was invited by a friend, Vandy P. Tullos, to acompany him to the home of his fiance, Miss Francis V. Tyson, where Oliver met her sister, Miss Larra C. Tyson. A few days later Laura C. Tyson was escorted by Sam Wilbanks to a community gathering. While buggy riding down the road near the place of destination, they passed a group of friends sauntering along the roadway, and among the jovial pedestrians was the handsome visiter Olivr C. rrington, from Sabine-way. As the buggy passed the group, Laura Tyson reached out and presented Oliver Arrington with a nice juicy red apple. This gesture started a romance, but not without perturbing the condescending escort, Sam Wilbanks.
It is not known, if the above incident cused a break in the close friendship between Sam and Laura, but the apple had a part in developing a whirlwind romance that produced the altar and a happy pletiatic family.
Laura C. Tyson and Oliver Cleveland were united in marriage in a double wedding liturgy concurrently with her sister. Frances V. Tyson, and Vandy P. Tullos in the home of the girls father and mother, Job Hamilton and Frances Emiline Tyson, at Dry Prong, Grant parish, LA. They were married on January 5, 1908, Sunday afternoon at 3:00 P.M.
Oliver and Laura chose the Red Land community near Florien, La., to make their first home, and for a short time they livd in a small house, very close to the home of his parents, on the family plantation> Later, after the birth of three children, they built a new house about a quarter of a mile from Oliver's parents. Only three weeks later, on March 13, 1913, the new house was completely destroyed by a ferocious Tornado, that caused the death of their infant son.
About ten years later tragedy struck the Oliver Arrington household when another tornado wrecked the home. About three years later during a celestial thunderstorm an electrical discharge was conveyed to the door of the family underground storm cellar where the nine year old daughter, while waiting for her father, was instantly elecftrocute4d.
After this chain of tragic experiences the family felt that maybe God was trying to tell them something, so they moved to Grant Parish, near Colfax, La. This was their home until poor health caused Oliver and Laura to break up houekeeping.
On April 4 1982 Laura Tyson Arrington wa 94 an living in a Nursing Home in Tioga, La.
