Westfield Free Press Volume - Thursday December 29, 1910
James Bailey King, commonly known as Bailey King, who has lived in Lakeview, Michigan for eighteen years, died at his home in that town. 28, surrounded by his own family, his sister Mrs. Delia Butler, his brother Alphonso P. King, some of his friends and his family doctor. King was born on July 7, 1855, in Brookfield, Pennsylvania, the birthplace of this family of twelve children, into a large family of his father, James King, Sr., and Lovina Bowman King. A bit of history of this royal family is worth noting: Godfrey Bowman, this late mother's father, commanded Commodore Perry in his famous victory over the British at Lake Erie in 1812 and was awarded a gold medal for bravery by him. . . James King, Sr. was originally from Rhode Island and also descended from a native revolutionary line that went back to the Mayflower. The other members of this large family of children are: Ostrander, deceased; Susanna, deceased; Jamie A; Alphonso, a resident of Lakefield, Milton, died as a result of the Civil War; Benson died of a fever at the end of the Civil War; Arvilla Crippen, deceased; Arzelia Stebbins, Thompson, deceased; Delia Butler, a well-liked Lakeview resident; James Bailey, the late and the youngest of the family. It is a pathetic reflection that only two of this noble and happy family of twelve children remain to cry on the broken pillars of ten loved ones. It is impossible to foresee the vast and varied channels through which happy and satisfied progeny will spread in later years, and the sad ravages of the cycle of time which is the inevitable fate so common to all of us. Although Bailey did not reach the stage of mediocrity in terms of political preference, he was a man with a noble and generous heart who always tried to give his children the best advice. If you've ever hurt someone, it's yourself, never a neighbor. He was known by a wide circle of acquaintances and will be missed in everyday life. James Bailey King joined the marriage of the late Delia (Perry) King. From this marriage was born Jesse James King, a resident of Lakeview. The second marriage was to Mary (McDonald) King, who survived him. His children are Lovina and Arvilla, who survive their father and live in Lakeview.
