A few years ago I contacted Mahlon G. Erickson about information on Jasper Newton & Martha (Miller)BAILEY and family. He helped me quite a bit, but now I am after more. He said in his letter the OK Historical Society Library has a file on Jasper Newton Bailey from the Union Veterans home where he spent the last part of his life. He said the file "contains the standard envelope for a male patient, his pension certificate, and two additional pages". I would like to know if I can get a copy of this file and what it would cost. I have been working on "old Jap Bailey"off and on for 13 years and have aquired quite a bit of info on him but would like to learn more about him and his family and siblings. Hopefully there might be something in his file to help me or just interesting to build his personality.
