Thursday, October 9, 1919




A cloudy day. No rain to
do any good. The men worked on
tobacco. Ben went to Mr Bailis
this morning. Jim Moon carried
him. They went to see a bout
getting a school. Also went
to Gretna to see tobacco

I went to Marvins a little
while this evening. Carrie was
mending overalls. She was
complaining of rheumatism
in her knee.

Rees brought me 10 eggs
to night.

Franklin staid at Marvins
all day. Henry & Edna went
to school.

Ben & Jim went to the
barn to night and have not
come back yet.

Ben W. Brumfield

If it weren't for the crossed T, it would be quite easy to resolve this name to Mr Bailiss, who is often spelled without a second s. I'm suspicious that Julia accidentally crossed her L here, but can't quite be sure.

Linda Tucker

I came across a 1921 reference to a Dodson Bailiss.
