On this date. . .the 1st of August

  • Annis L. (Stroud) Bailey was born in 1835.
  • James Moore died in 1859.
  • John Adolphus Whiteside died in 1864.
  • Coy Johnson died in 1943.
  • James Henry Johnson died in 1974.
  • Newton Coleman Ward died in 1974 (my great-grandfather).

I’ve just realized that my great-grandmother’s brother (James Henry Johnson) and husband (Newt Ward) died on the same day.  How horrible.  This is one of the reasons I”m doing these “On this date” posts; it is a great way to make connections by looking at the data in a way I haven’t looked at it before.
