Melba & Paulines memories of Lilly

Contributor: Todd Millett Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

September 7, 1918 Magnolia, our mother, John Ezra Baileys wife, died. Father was very lost and started corresponding with Lilly. She eventually came west and we all went with dad to Grand Junction to pick her up at the DRG Depot. They were married there. Melba recalls the coming of Lily: My first impression of Lilly was seeing a big woman, with a very large hat with a plume. Lilly was very beautiful. Pauline recalls: I will never forget the day after she came she wanted to go down town to get some shoes". I was astounded when she paid $13.00 for them, I never remembered mother paying more than $4.00 for her shoes. Apparently she was very well to do, her ex husband was a lawyer.They had two children, Howard and Bernice. We never met them. Lilly was from the city, she was very beautiful and dressed absolutely gorgeous. We assumed she had lived quite a social life before coming to Monticello. It must have been difficult for Lilly to come to a small town like Monticello and walk into six children like she did. I never remember her complaining or letting down. Looking back now I realize we all treated her unkindly. We really were rotten to her, and looking back I can see how terribly wrong we were. Lilly later returned back to the Eastern seaboard,

Life timeline of John Ezra Bailey

John Ezra Bailey was born on 22 Nov 1862
John Ezra Bailey was 17 years old when Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent lighting to the public for the first time, in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
John Ezra Bailey was 23 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax. His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
John Ezra Bailey was 32 years old when Mahatma Gandhi forms the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) in order to fight discrimination against Indian traders in Natal. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā – applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa – is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.

Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
