A. Minter, who lives in the Pine Forest neighborhood. He was a Methodist preacher and organized the first Methodist church that was ever established in the town of Sulphur Springs. The author has heard this great preacher deliver powerful sermons. He was a natural preacher. He loved his work intensely, and has been instrumental in converting more people, perhaps, than any divine of his day. His power of oratory was great, and when he became enthused, which he did with a full audience, his efforts were stupendous. On one occasion when he had preached the funeral sermon of a noble citizen of his acquaintance, he stepped from the pulpit to the floor and began singing an appropriate song, asking the audience to join in the singing. They were all too full. All tried to sing the song he had selected for the occasion, but failed. Women wept freely, old men and hardened sinners wept. Sobs and sighs...

Biography of Alfred Thomas Bailey

Discover your family's story. Enter a grandparent's name to get started. Start Now Alfred Thomas Bailey, whose life record constituted a fine example of manliness, industry and enterprise, was prominently identified with oil interests of northeastern Oklahoma and his sudden demise in 1918 brought with it a sense of overwhelming loss to his mother, to whom he was ever a most devoted son, and was also the occasion of deep and sincere regret to the many he had made during the period of his residence in this part of the state. A native of Canada, he was born at Ottawa, in the province of Quebec, on the 25th of September, 1873, his parents being Thomas S. and Ida (Walters) Bailey, the former a native of London, England, while the latter was born in Galt, Canada. The father met an accidental death in a factory in Canada in 1887. The maternal grandfather, Thomas Bailey, was a man of marked intellectual attainments and served as district judge at Ottawa, Canada, making a highly commendable record in that connection. He passed away at Osgood, Canada, in 1884. His daughter Ida married Thomas S. Bailey on the 25th of September, 1872, and they became the parents of five children : Alfred, Charles, Enid, Edna and Blanche. The daughter Enid married A. E.

Discover your family's story. Enter a grandparent's name to get started. Start Now Seth J. Bailey. The gratifying success which had crowned the efforts of Seth J. Bailey, of Chanute, clearly and emphatically evidence the business skill, perseverance and enterprise of this individual, who had been engaged in business here since the fall of 1900. This is a utilitarian age, one in which advancement and progress come through activity in the industrial and commercial interests of life. There is nothing to which America owes her pre-eminence among the nations of the earth so much as to her inventions, and each year sees additions to the list which bear marked impress upon the world of trade. It is not as an inventor, but as a manufacturer of inventions that Mr. Bailey is known. He had the foresight to see the possibilities of a certain appliance and the courage to back his judgment, and the result had been the building up of one of Chanute’s prominent and substantial business concerns, the Sunshine Mantle Company, manufacturers of incandescent gas mantles. Mr. Bailey is a native son of Kansas, born in the City of Topeka, May 2, 1868, his parents being Dr. M. and Lanra A. (Jarboe) Bailey. The family is of English origin, and was founded in Pennsylvania prior to the War of the Revolution. William Bailey, the grandfather of Seth J....
